  1. Pulsar/Pulsarail hi-vis waterproofs?

    OMT, sorry I didn't reply to your PM - I've had a manic few days in the rain and hadn't had a chance to get on Arbtalk. I've ended up wearing my Helly Hansen packable rain jacket that I got from MandMDirect, and it's kept me perfectly dry. Not hi-vis, but very waterproof and breathable. I just can't justify spending money at the moment
  2. Sharpening hedgetrimmers

    Biggest problem I have is that I get so much use out of one set that the mating faces get worn and they go slack. Keep them sharp as a knife but once they've gone slack they are crap on anything that is stringy! Looks like I'll be filing the spacers down a bit - I'm sure they've got lots of hours of use left in them

  4. Which Muck Boot and where to get?

    Ahh, the Buckler wellies are a different story - top notch. Years ago I had a pair of Hunters that were ok, but my Mrs got a pair 2 years ago and they split after 3 months of walking, and the buckles rusted. Over-priced rubbish they were and she'll never touch a pair again.

  9. Which Muck Boot and where to get?

    I was strongly advised AGAINST buying these by a farm supplies place. The purchase was going to be for dog walking, and the fella pointed out that the soles on the Buckboots muck boots are crap in the mud and on slopes. Ended up with a pair of Derwent neoprene wellies with really good soles on them. Got them from a fishing supplies place on line.... much cheaper than country stores!

  12. Hi Steve. It's just a QR Code (2D barcode), with my contact info in it. Can be read with a phone. Lots of web sites out there for generating the image files. Can't remember which one I used now. Hope this helps. Pete

  14. accident waiting to happen...

    Fun! But just because it's not the homeowner doesn't necessarily mean it's a contractor - could be friend or friend of friend of the homeowner.
  15. Stihl Super Harness?

    I find the Stihl Super Harness HORRIBLE to use. It's all wrong for me, no matter how I adjust it, and I find it puts too much weight on my lower back and restricts movement too much. However, my work mate likes it. He's weird though.
