    How are the veggies coming along?

    Thats a long one! Last year was amazing for fruit, we had plenty of spuds, harricot beans, peas, leeks a bit wormy, butternut squash - dozens, peppers, aubergene but not so well with carrots.

    Tree fungi and knot guide apps

    At a guess, IOS11 no longer supports 32bit apps?

    Perhaps Spud is also a 'hedge fund' manager, there might be some connection there... sigh.

    £100k Inheritance

    Yes if you grew your own fruit and veg & did the self sufficiency thing to keep out goings down.

    Stihl v Husqvarna resale price

    Whilst I prefer/like/perv Husqvarna 3 series, the 241, 260, 461, 661 seem fine saws - and a few others, they sometimes go AWOL when a new model is released and takes a bit to sort it. Should all be available on prescription really, much better for you than nasty pharmaceuticals I think Stihls sell well on E-bay because the name is very well known, so they must be good...

    346xp potential

    Thats fine, but most here are in Europe so shipping and import duty adds to the cost, unless the UK becomes the 51st or is it 52nd state after 2019! Lot of info on that site. Yes, Rob D has full skip .404 and 3/8th in .063 & .058 guage

    346xp potential

    Hi I have a un-modded 346xp & its excellent, can't fault it, feels best (to me) on a 15" bar. I'm sure Spud would get a lot more from it, but cost & the laws of diminishing return limit what is possible - I guess +15% might be achievable without spending too much? I dont know. As Stubby said, it wont provide 70cc torque, but you'll certainly have a fine saw once done.

    good deal on 3 x 242XPG saws

    Hi, yes 346xp NEII still available here in France.

    good deal on 3 x 242XPG saws

    15500 RPM? Thats insane, I thought my 346 was high revving, but this is something else. Why dont they still make them? what lasts over 20 years, not good for profits! and not so long ago I was gettin ragged for not liking new fangled tech...
