    Recommendations for a Solar kit for a workshop

    Mainly through them thinking, (example) a 110ah baterry will give you 110ah. Apart from lithiums dischaging a battery below 50% capacity is the way to wreck batteries quickly, using the example above a 110ah battery is only good to supply 55ah.

    Bark stripped on willow slips

    My roe deer loved the aspen and spindle, haven't done so much damage to the willow. I had to send one of them a 150gr invitation to quit but generally I like seeing them around, especially now my woodland is better established. That willow will probably survive, although I might be tempted to put rabbit spirals around it

    Treat black mould on gates

    Yes, would also look like Slade prison...
  5. Well our new so called Tree Minister has outlined plans to plant 3Billion trees and 200’000 miles of hedgerows by 2050...step in the right direction or just election talk???Mr worsley is the right guy for the job as he is a farmer and landowner who himself has planted out Thousands trees over a number of years on his estate.if this happens it will stand this country in good stead for generations to come and I for one will be happy..however as with all these projects it comes down to cost and funding...not only for the sourcing the correct tree species but for the labour to plant out and of course to keep the trees and saplings free from out furry friends who will have a knife and fork ready for the feast and not forgetting the non indigenous species who find there way here...we have big problems in that area...anyway I think it’s a massive step in the right direction so let’s see how this develops...hope so in my life time.

    Massaria on the March

    Some big arsed London planes in Russell Square. Imagine LB Camden are all over the branches from inspection POV. Would be interesting to know if the placement of benches is random or strategic in terms of location outside or under canopy branches.

    Jokes???

    Theresa May and Jeremy Corbyn are on a plane. Corbyn looked at May, chuckled and said, "You know, I could throw a £1,000 note out of the window right now and make somebody happy." May shrugged her shoulders and replied, "I could throw ten £100 notes out of the window and make ten people happy" Hearing… their exchange, the pilot said to his co-pilot, I could throw both of them out of the window and make 64 million people very, very happy!" ..

    From my experience most people who haven't used solar before usually wreck their first bank of batteries fairly quickly, with that in mind I'd probably take a punt on these with a cheeky offer to start with. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/6-Sonnenschein-12-76-12V-456AH-5-5KWh-LEISURE-SOLAR-INVERTER-POWER-BATTERIES/113714471748?hash=item1a79e92344%3Ag%3AxLwAAOSwJ-xchnsB&LH_ItemCondition=4

    Trapped nerve any one ?

    Nasty business. Overworked muscles can exacerbate trapped nerves. A good physio can work wonders. My old man suffered for years with a trapped nerve in his leg. Finally went to physio, think he had about 5 sessions and it eased immensely, then followed up with one or two a year if he felt it coming back. Hope you get it sorted. Its crippling. Remember seeing the old man buckling up with it. Literally brought tears to his eyes.. he was the rock hard no fuss type too. Took a lot to bring him down. May be worth checking posture and work position too..

    Massaria on the March

    I wonder at the confidence level for massaria inspections each time I sit and have lunch in Russell Square on my annual pilgrimage to the smoke

    Uprated vehicles??

    There has been a company upgrading them to 3.5 tons for quite some time. Apparently it has been Toyota GB who have not been willing to plate them at 3.5 ton

    Treat black mould on gates

    Creosote mixed 50/50 with black oil would solve the problem. It would all be the same colour and also last forever!

    Trapped nerve any one ?

    Sorry to hear your the way you are, but i know where your coming from on this issue, had a trapped nerve in my neck about 3 years ago could hardly move my head without being in a load of pain, my right arm always felt cold and could hardly lift any thing with it, after several visits to a physio began to feel a bit better, the worst of it lasted about 2 wks but sorry to say this it was nearly 3 months before i felt as if it was ok, just had to carry on doing bits as best as i could but the first 2-3wk drove me mad as could hardly lift the kettle to brew up, hope your back up and out,n,about soon,,

    This is all good. Fingers crossed that it's a simple fix.

    Recommendations for a Solar kit for a workshop

    A school. They're pretty small and come ganged up to 96v in enclosures that form part of an uninterruptible power supply for a computer server. They bin them every two years to make sure the backup power system is always tip top. I imagine other organisations with lots of computers do similar. Because they're small, I had to do a lot of wiring to parallel them (I'm running at 12v), which was fiddly and expensive but works.
