    Echo 2511TES, help!

    Thanks all. These haven't caused any trouble for us yet in two years. One tune up, but that's been it until the throttle trigger snapped (thanks for the replacement Mark @ Skyland). They're like powered Silkys! Enough of this work stuff now....

    Stand down, the panic is over. The ball bearing is safely back home...... in the bit holder.....

    Replacing a broken throttle trigger and this is my first venture into the inner workings of this model. A tiny 3mm ball bearing has dropped from the handle assembly and onto the worktop. Where has it come from?

    General Tree pics

    Saw this today, a sycamore and an oak, that have grown very close! Looked properly fused but I couldn't be 100%, certainly be interesting to be present when/if they get taken down. ...or get the job taking them down.

    Good call on the cryptomeria Yorkshire Brummie, it's been confirmed! The cones are about 25mm, AJStrees. Thanks for looking, I haven't encountered C. Japonica as often as C. Elegans, so although it looked familiar, I couldn't confidently ID it!

    The picture is 2 days old! It's definitely not juniper and I'm relatively sure that is not cryptomaria.
  8. I should know, but I don't. Pretty sure that it's not cryptomeria spp. Thanks

    Night sights for shooting (at night...)

    A solar one 🙄, the rats would like that!
  11. Can anyone advise on night sights, specifically the Digital Night Stalker? I don't want to be changing the whole sight setup so have been looking at these as they attach to your normal sight, and take advantage of the existing optics. Any thoughts or opinions would be appreciated, or suggestions for alternatives to consider. Thanks Adam I'm using a .22 air rifle.
