  8. Whippet

    Brilliant. I didn't study it properly the first time I looked. You could have it 'coursing' those Hares you carved a while back.
  9. Making the news today....

    I agree that Trump calls it as it is, or as he sees it, but you can't do that when you are in high office. You will get the other lots back-up, then people start taking to the streets. A bit more diplomacy is needed, (is that the word I was looking for?).
  10. echo 390esx fuel cap expanded?

    Anybody had any issues with their fuel cap swelling up? mines less than a year old and the other day noticed that it was getting harder and harder to do up the cap. ordered a new one and its fine. looking at the old one it looked like it had swelled up?

  14. New generation Husqvarnas

    Well didn't take long did it..... I know where those pictures were taken
  15. Hitting a parked vehicle and not leaving details

    Yes, I get that and it would have been my reposte had the Judge not stopped the baffoon before he'd even got part way into the start of the counter claim sentence with the stern look and a "get back in your box tosser" expression (only my interpretation of the facial expression) and the words "counter claim costs are discretionary and I won't even consider it..." words! Truth be told, there was always the potential for a counter claim and it did sow a seed of doubt. My reasoning was, worst case scenario, 5k counter claim, I could have taken that on the chin but it would have shattered my belief in natural justice (the Magna Carta) and driven me, irrecoverably further down the road to social rebellion and natural justice. Read your post again, second reading, and a moments thought (albeit through a mist of vino tinto) reveals a depth of knowledge and previous experience, appreciate your input

  18. The Wee Chipper Club

    well the greenmech chipper just moved the engine from in front of the chipper, it rested on a front plate to moving it onto the middle of the machine.. probably explains why they don't make much fuss when they come across copies of theirs..

  22. Spuds Porting and Tuning Thread

    Been inside a MS661 this week, first one I have done! A machine where lots of small things can be done and won't know how it has gone until it returns to Ireland and is used in vengeance. The saw has one of those annoying forward facing ring pins running down the side of the exhaust port. You can leave out the ring and go to town on the port but decided to keep it as it was. Very strange port design, most modern exhaust ports slope aggressively downwards helping the scavenging process, this one is upward facing and really don't get that design at all....very strange. Time will tell if the work has been worth it!
  23. The Mower Bench

    Thanks very much for your input,some good points to look for and will be looking at the weekend.Put a new air filter on last weekend but still played up.Ended up getting out the electric flymo which took ages and I hate messing around moving cables etc.
  24. Wording it correctly

    Can you not cover this in terms and conditions? As in third party contractors may be used on a bonafide contractor basis and will therefore be totally responsible for their work. As long as all three parties have a written understanding/contract surely that would cover it. I'd think you then don't appear to be palming off responsibility but come across as a capable project manager.
  25. Tree Bracing

    Get rid of it and replace, should have been taken down before you started. Retaining it will only lead to problems later on.
  26. Delaying validation

    I feel awful now. Emailed planning this morning to highlight the submission date and I found their response unacceptable in recording the application five weeks later. I said that if the app wasn't determined eight weeks after my submission I'd be going to appeal. the TO replied with a very apologetic email, the response is computer generated and uses the day the operator inputs the details. He'd forgotten to amend to the right dates! He'd also written the consent and although he hadn't got it in the post yet who wanted us to know that we could crack on. I wish I'd sent a lot less officious email and been a lot more friendly in my approach.
  27. Which chainsaw should I buy?

    Thanks for the info, much appreciated
