  1. Try leaving the chain break off when the saw isn't running, so that the chain pulls around the bar instead of cutting the trousers. Just remember to put it back on before starting the saw.
  2. These are my system, I'm happy to show them to anyone who asks.
  3. Well how about everyone who is an AA member should email them to say they will not renew their membership over this matter. That may help motivate them to fight our corner!

    Silky sharpening.

    Spit works well for some reason
  6. I wonder if the people who wrote the old guide lines will be held liable for all the climbing accidents since 2005?
  7. Just playing devils advocate here, but surely if all these people who have had accidents due being shown how to climb in the wrong way will be able to sue there training providers? Then the training people will sue those that write the guidelines. That's seems to be the way things get done nowadays.
  8. I know a Bulgarian guy who buys knackered BMW, vw and audi cars for the parts and ships the parts back home. He says that he makes a couple of grand from each car

    Down rating trucks

    Before this truck I had a toyota dyna, it could carry 1.3 ton legally. That was great, but still often over loaded. When it was time to replace the dyna I decided I'd rather get a truck with the suspension and breaks to handle the work safely. I've got a 7.5t driver licence, but can't get an o licence for the yard and don't want to move yards. I also only do about couple of thousand miles in a busy year mostly around the little villages local to us. I haven't seen a copper for years so it doesn't seem to be such an issue.

    Down rating trucks

    The truck is a perfect fit for the work I do. It's just the paperwork that doesn't fit.

    The 3.5 trucks only weigh about 150kg less.
