  1. With regards to price if you have worked out your time and costs then added profit. That's all you can do but allow enough time. like SOC said about under estimating amount of grindings can you add efficiency by having a mechanical thing to help load all the grindings as there will be a lot of and possibly longer distance. But I agree with topchippyles thinking about it the price could be higher. Have a good day.
  2. In a few years. I've had 3 years of study and work *level 2 1 year, then level 4 for 2*. I also want to consolidate all the learning I have done and get experienced with the many facets of arb consultancy. What's your plans?
  3. I've finished the whole thing it's taken me 2 years. 15 lessons in the first year then support after.
  4. I'm not sure of the answer for tools. But I was advised that leaving some wood from the diseased trees for the fungus to devour as it will be easier to decay that than fight another tree.
  5. I'm just finishing my level 4 and found these books helpful
  6. Boots are a very personal thing I would suggest something like superfeet insoles or something that gives you more support. Then after that go with something you like.
  7. Hi all Just saw this on Facebook marketplace Its not mine just saw it as browsing through. https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/2855332827893902/
  8. 1. Any idea who owns a xxx machine that could do this in east of England and 2. I've never heard of a fret saw I'll look it up.
  9. Hello all I have seen a design I like he look of and would like recreated but with a few tweaks. I don't know if it comes under carving or something else so would like to ask people if it's possible and any recommendations of someone that can do it I am in the east of england near thetford. Many thanks Ian C
  10. What about this with a cutter head on it???[emoji16]
  11. Ah I forgot about the wearing over glasses bit but if you follow the link there are other offerings of mesh safety specs that could be worn over glasses. The ones I'm thinking of have a band to go around the back of your head.
  12. I have used these before when chogging down with a 460 on stems with wind blowing in my face. They are inexpensive and will never fog up.[emoji6]
  13. Willow hedge. Plant thin whips of willow. These can be the end of branches. You can make them to the height you want. once they have rooted they can be crossed over each other at angles. It can be very thin and kept easily. And removed easily if ever needed. I remember seeing it in a RHS encyclopedia book one time and it sounded interesting.
  14. Council accidentally chops down 800 trees WWW.BBC.COM The saplings had been planted in Palmer Park in Reading by a group of volunteers. Well this won't help the cause.
