    Dolly wheel mod

    The foam tyres are good but the bearings are rubbish, they don't last long on a sack truck with heavy use. You can get replacement bearings for a couple quid but they don't last any longer. The good wheels are the magliner ones, but you need deep pockets.

    What to do with a broken 346xp?

    I've no doubt that in 20 years time we'll all be running about with battery chainsaws, hedge cutters, etc, and we'll be trying to explain to youngsters what 2 stroke was. Ps just fitted an ebike kit to my bicycle, wow, great fun!

    Mike Pepler, the celebrity! Recognise the name from years ago on youtube!
  6. Maybe I had a bad pair, but I had the same boots a good few years ago, and they didn't last long, the sole fell off

    Queen to cut down Windsor trees

    What is wrong with the Queen. Why would you cut down trees just to get a bit of wood out of it. Can she not go down to a timber yard like everyone else. Would somebody please think of the children

    How best to preserve a Bog Fir rootplate

    You've never seen it then! Old gaelic boy doing odd jobs on folks houses. The only annoying thing is half the time he bodges the job with PVC and silicone! And he likes a good sing and dance

    How best to preserve a Bog Fir rootplate

    Interestingly, on the episode of "DIY le Donnie" (BBC Alba) tonight, there was a community garden, and the folks were painting a dug out stump/roots with wood hardener, to try and preserve it. Suppose it's a bit like the resin idea. Don't know how well it would last.
  10. This just came up on my youtube. Think I've seen a similar machine before. Just looks like a nice simple relaxed way of producing logs from thin lengths

    Which small chipper to buy...

    Hedge waste as in cuttings from a hedge cutter? A chipper isn't going to help much with that
