  3. The Sheriffs Are Coming.

    Just a wee thought for anyone............................if you pay your bills you don't need to give the ways bailiffs dress a second thought............... works for me
  4. Boiler stove?

    IME, if you want to centrally heat a house using wood you need a large outdoor boiler. Alternatively you could get a multi fuel stove and burn wood most of the time, but use coal or smokeless overnight.

    Burn coal.
  6. My Third Removal

    If you using your strop correctly there is zero chance of it ending up round your ankles. As for needing pegs to "catch" you if you slip, this IMO, is a bit of a myth. OK maybe on a smooth, wet Sycamore there is a possibility, but not on a conifer or any rough barked trees. Pegs are a crutch, they are not needed and in my view are the sign of a poor or sloppy climber. Ok so its only his 3 dismantle, but far better to start with good practice, IMO.
  7. Chipper help

    I would imagine it has a centrifugal clutch, so the drum tuning is ok. But not a machine I’m familiar with, so I could be wrong.

    10 years ago things were great! We had estate agents going round the country inflating the value of people homes, those people then remortgaged. So basically they were handing out briefcases of unearned cash. A lot of that cash was pumped into the economy. Its taking sometime for the economy to reset.

    How do you help the genuinely suffering, without the lazy putting themselves into the same position as the suffering in order to reap the same benefits? The more generous you make the benefit system, the more people suddenly find themselves in need, weird ain't it? As benefits have been cut more and more mysteriously find they are able to work after all..............who knew? I feel sorry for those in genuine need, but how do we get round lazy human nature?

    I just go for those who I feel will do the least damage. I'm not really afraid of labour getting into power, what scares me are the measures that will be needed to fix things after their gone

    Yes your guy is a real star
  13. New Meindl boots

    If you remove half your foot with a saw I guess it will feel lighter still.
