  1. it's a very personal thing but i absolutely love the kolibri for the big take downs, was like sitting in an armchair compared to some i tried
  2. didnt scott forest give a shout out about this when a piece that was being lowered dropped over his dynamic lanyard and burnt through the sheath in a split second???
  3. Great stuf mate, the idea of its good but in my eyes its spiraling out of control with the assesing companys ripping a few extra kid out the working man, the trade ticked over for long enough without the latest government stealth tax on the self employed
  4. Cheers mate, all cis and the like is still on going how about cscs??? wasn't in the trade at the time that became the in thing, but know that it's not need for all jobs
  5. hopefully Andy it wont have to be a permanent thing, just have to make the right choice for the time being untill i can get my hands patched up (6week lay off) and get the problems in my back and neck looked at by a specialist (???) Its just that my little man was born on the 14th dec, and being the only earner now to provide for my 3 kids put the wind up me a little, when i found out the mrs was pregnant and with the problems that i have my heart had gone a little bit with the climbing and i'd started to lose my bottle if i'm honest, i'm no good to anyone up a tree worrying about my little 1's and worry that 1 day making a panicked decision that i'd end up hurting my self or even worse some one on the ground below me Cant remember who asked as well but no treemotion sorry
  6. again thank you all very much for your kind words it really is so nice of you all. Andy and Simon i haven't got the experience in the trade to be running my own jobs if i'm honest and it might sound silly Simon but i'm fine laying bricks and as i can alter my stance a little to suit what i'm doing its the saws that cause me the most grief with my hands as i'm forced to hold the handle straight where as with laying even heavy 6" blocks i can clamp my right my thumb, index and middle finger round them and leave two that hurt out of the way which i cant do with the safely with a saw, hedge cutters are the worst for my hands leaving them clawed up for a couple of days after just an hour on them but laying bricks, blocks and even flagstones is fine and if i'm honest i'm a far better trowel than i ever was a climber, hahaha Mike and Simon your star men if you do need a hand with any masonry please give me a shout i'll gladly take it on Cheers again Fellas you really are a good bunch
  7. Thanks all for the kind words means alot it really does you'v always been a good bunch. And simon i expected nothing more than stick from a fellow tenbury boy hahahaha, got a full srt set up mate if you want 2 pm me i'l tell you what and you can see if its any good to you, i've got a few bits of work lined up mate but not much at the moment so if you know anyone looking for a top notch bricky give me a shout. And james its a great trade and i loved it dearly but hadn't looked after my body as well as i could of as a young un and this game soon sorted out the weak points, if anyone wants to pm me i'll telll you what i've got and you can make me an offer or i'll stick it all on arb trader in the morning just thought i'd try and help out a few here 1st as many had helped me along the way thought i'd try and offer abit back 1st
  8. I've had to make the decision to walk away from something i love:sad: years of playing rugby and doing mma has left my body in a complete mess my hands constantly hurt from the vibration from the saws and recurring trapped nerves in my neck and back from hanging in a harness which leave me lay up for 2-3 weeks at a time mean that as i'm the only earner for my family i'm going to have to drop back in to the building trade. I'm absolutely devastated as i really enjoyed my time learning the trade but with the building i can get labourers to do the bulk of the mauling and as i've got at least 30years before i retire i've got to make the educated choice and walk away while my bodys still good for something else. I'm going to be getting rid of the bulk of my climbing kit but keep a few bits back so i can still do the odd bit of rec climbing to keep fit so if there's any lads looking to get started i may be able to help you out. Nelly

Moved the coil just a tiny little bit gave the plug a little clean and checked all the wire connections while i was in there.
