    2 old ladies meet up in town. The first old lady, Doreen, says "Hello Mavis, did you come on the bus?" "I did" replies Mavis "but I made it look like an asthma attack."

    The wife just rushed in, all smiles, saying she found her wedding dress and she can still fit in it. I haven't the heart to tell her it's the marquee.
  4. 2450 & 1850 but not at same time lol. So with driver about 700kg of load. Thats not much for an arb truck. A 20ft tree is easily going to weigh that. I recon I can see an easy 1t+ in that pile. Your pic seems to have plenty of logs in it too. From memory that model has what look like odd shaped springs.
  5. I remember hearing that one told by James Nesbitt on Murphy's Law some 20 years ago!
  6. Its fixable, Fear Not, i will crank mine up in the week n see if anything comes to mind. K
  7. Wet and miserable outside is a good enough reason for me too. Got mine on again this evening. That and a good old bit of Roy Orbison really hits the spot!
  8. Today
  9. Of course not. What even is Global Warming? It's just a figment of Greta Thunberg's imagination. [emoji12][emoji12][emoji50]

    Did you hear the one about the dyslexic, agnostic, insomniac? He would lie awake every night pondering the existence of Dog.

    Definitely does, which is why I limit the storing and burning to our biomass situated in an out of the way steading.

  13. The seller did turn up to show me how to start her, but he wasn’t any more successful than me. He said he’d never had starting issues, never had to bleed her or use the enrichening slide that is built within the fuel pump, even on frosty mornings. A brief spin up with the throttle pedal trapped with a piece of wood was all that was needed supposedly. Maybe I’m too trusting but I do believe him and think some shit must have been dislodged on the 50 mile trip home on my hard sprung trailer. I’ll follow the ideas over fuel delivery gratefully received from you guys and try to see if I can discover the problem.

    If life gives you Melons, maybe you're dyslexic
  17. I had the same in my previous house, 3/4" and only had 22mm pipe. The normal fix is something called Plumbers Mait and a 3/4" compression fitting and use lots of force to do it up......sealed up in my case and terminated in a fully metric new bathroom!! Plumbing is OK, the biggest issue is getting to pipes and fittings in restricted spaces.
  18. Dunno about soft ass,looks like he might bite your ass

  23. My understanding is these floors have a plenum underneath and then slotted floor for the warm air to pass up through. When there is loose grain on the floor the air is distributed fairly evenly through the grain, also only 2-5% of the mass is exhausted as water vapour. With wood, especially in IBCs I wonder how much of the air will take an easier path between the containers. Also the air only passes through once, with grain that is ameliorated because there is a very high surface area and the moisture doesn't take too long to pass to the surface of the grain. With wood unless you have sufficient moist surface the air will leave the top less than optimally saturated. If you are blowing ambient air the only issue is the fan power but if you are heating the air then it could be leaving the surface still too far above ambient temperature which means heat is being wasted. My old boss built a number of wood chip dryers based on this principle of dry warm air fed in at the bottom and colder saturated air being exhausted and it's an art deciding when the wood at the top is nearly dry because whilst the bottom layers become in equilibrium with the incoming warm air saturated colder air can actually redeposit moisture into the top layers. With woodchip this is visible and obvious but I don't know with logs.
