  4. Tree surveying in the modern age

    We use tree smart arb from kaarbontech. its pretty good once you get the hang of it, but its 2.5k per year so you need to be doing quite a lot of surveys to justify it.
  5. 254 suddenly running rich

    I have a spare saw so I might try the other carb. I also have an ultrasonic cleaner so I could give that a go..
  6. 254 suddenly running rich

    My ported 254 has suddenly stopped running, it starts and ticks over for a few seconds then dies, flooded. It's running too rich, the plug is black and oily. Looking for suggestions as to the culprit..
  7. Paleo diet

    https://www.ebay.co.uk/i/382146462347?chn=ps&dispItem=1&adgroupid=46178569849&rlsatarget=pla-355015754764&abcId=1128926&adtype=pla&merchantid=9491054&poi=&googleloc=9046877&device=c&campaignid=856228942&crdt=0 The book is well worth reading. Its basically the 5:2 diet. The science is really interesting, its not just about loosing weight, fasting does things to your body at a cellular level that are really good for you. Reducing cancer risk etc. You eat normally for 5 days a week and then 500calories on the other two days. Its the easiest way to do this is to miss breakfast and lunch and then have a half decent tea. although if you want to eek out your 500 calories over 3 meals you can. Read the book, its quite short, the first half is the interesting part, the second is recipes and calorie data..
  8. Paleo diet

    I did it again a few months back but it played havoc with my guts this time, even though last time it was fine. I've been doing the fast diet instead and tbh its really good, not much of a chore and i lost half a stone. I tend to limit the carbs on the non fast days as well..
  9. Mark Bolam

    I'm sure he'll be back soon.
  10. An interesting scenario...

    This sounds like a simple balls up on behalf of the LA. They are hardly likely to do anything about it now as it will make them look bad. This sort of thing is actually quite common.
  11. Show us what you've built..

    Nice stuff scbk. Even that small log store will hold a lot if it's stacked well.
  12. Do'er upper chipper

    The TP Shear bars have quite a bit of adjustment on them and they can be rotated as well as turned so you have 4 edges to play with, if all 4 edges have been used you could just get it re-ground and start again. I don't see why it would need to be built up unless its been re-ground many times, and if it has i'd just buy a new one.
  13. What can be offset against tax?

    Anything that you buy that can be used for business purposes can be written off. So yes, training, books , accommodation if working away from home are all fine. just don't take the pi55.
  14. Pick-up speed limits

    The experimental speed limit for HGV's on the A9 is taking them up from 40mph to 50. this was because they were holding everyone up and no one dared to overtake.
  15. Alpine and chipper for Josh

    Go on @josharb87, you know you want one..
