    What's the best old 4 x 4 ?

    Mark 4 Hilux, had it 11 years, brilliant truck, spent a few quid over the years but by god it's been a great motor. Pulls a trailer ok, 2 tonne only but still does the job. I'll be gutted when she dies.

    Jotul - You should only burn hardwoods

    Burnt softwood and a bit of hardwood, on our stove for 10 years and we get about a cornflakes bowl of soot each year.

    What sawbench???

    Use a petrol Balfour saw bench, very pleased with it. Gets a bit tight on green softwood, but flies through most hinges sub 250mm

    new toy! Thor magik petrol 13t

    Thanks, mine hasn't got that so will need to buy one. Seems a very simple device to stop a powerful ram going any further.

    new toy! Thor magik petrol 13t

    Just got myself one these splitters , courtesy of Bustergasket, it's probably dead obvious but how do you fix it so the ram only goes up to a certain point,instead of the full ram cycle? It's not in the manual .Thanks Richard

    yup, dry is all they want. Sold out. Say every year it won't happen again but it always does.

    Replacing trailer floor

    I used 8x4 sheets of hardboard that were lying around the yard, brilliant stuff. Like the scaffold board idea though. Very tough

    "Clean Air Strategy" today we find out.

    Mine are the same Beau, maybe a tad less but around that mark. Still excellent burning wood.

    Best 5kw multi fuel stove recommendations please

    Buying second hand would get you a clearview 500. not sure that would get you much brand new, to be honest.

    Retail cost of kindling per KG?

    My supplier has recently almost halved the size of the bags, when I complained at the cost being the same she snapped and said the bags were fuller than the other ones. Not true, they weighed less than 2 kg each bag. Won't be going there again.
