  1. That looks great. Prefer the way the inner tube comes through the top and is then bent over. Looking at other deigns this seems to be the way to go. Not sure I would give the fire air at the base though. For disposing of wood quickly it makes sense but for a fire pit I want my wood to last an not be gone in a flash
  2. Been looking at them from while but couldn't face coughing up the kind of sums of money they go for considering how rarely we will use it Just picked up some new barrels for our charcoal retort for stuff all money so came up with an idea to make a smokeless fire pit from one. Took an hour or two and works better than I could have possibly hoped The lid makes a floor The outer is made from the base and cut out around 25mm in from the edge. Then drilled holes around the base to let the air in The inner is made from the top of the barrel and cut around 20mm lower than the outer. Split it down the side and riveted together at 50mm smaller diameter as the outer I didn't fix the rings and base all together and just rested the two rings on the lid evenly space and popped some ash in the bottom to stop air bypassing and getting in at the bottom of inner ring. Hope that makes sense
  3. "result in house prices going up as mortgages become more affordable " Presume that is the aim. They clearly have no interest in homes being cheaper More dept to keep us as slaves to the economy
  4. Cut to widths that fit your Scheppach and then rejoin them. Thats how I always made up table tops
  5. We bought an old Izy off Facebook for £100. Works perfectly and our other mower is an old Stiga which was well used when we got it and thats still going strong 10 years later
  6. I find quality bars a bit hard for these files. Think I tried the Vallorbe but it tended to slide over rather than file the bar. Was OK on my original cheapy Oregon bar. Built a simple grinder set up at 90 degrees in the end
  7. Sounds like the bar needs dressing. The bar on my Farmi gets worn unevenly and needs dressing often to square it up. Also make sure you are keeping the teeth the same length on the chain
  8. Presume it the pre-runner to P25? You can download details of that here. Edit Just checked and mine crane is the 200 Forestry Cranes WWW.FUELWOOD.CO.UK Running a small Mowi crane myself but cant remember model but its at the bottom end. Cant fault it but never used anything else to compare it to
  9. It's not what the accountant says. I have no idea Just did a search on the phone number 03002003831 | WARNING – reports: 10 WWW.TELGUARDER.COM Info about 03002003831 – Lookups: 561 / reports: 10. Received a call? See who it is and read what other users say...
  10. Just received a VAT demand that looked totally plausible. Full name and details all look right. Thought I was set up with DD so double checked with the accountant who assured me I didn't owe them anything. He took a look at the letter and said it was the best fraud he had seen so beware.
  11. Thank you all for the suggestions. Now got to see whats about and test drive the EV van
  12. Liz does very few miles just for work. Worked it out last night at 1500 miles a year. My truck does around 5000 on average just for work. If we got an EV it would be that 5000 plus plenty of the domestic journeys which we currently do in Liz's car. Could probably keep the 4x4 miles below 2k per year if we make and effort to utilise an EV van. Looking at the Maxus E-Deliver 3 drop sider. Not much about them yet but the panel van version has been going for a while and got pretty good feedback. Same HP and torque as my Hilux but loads lighter so should find log deliveries a doddle https://www.parkers.co.uk/vans-pickups/news/2021/maxus-electric-vans-future-plans-at-2021-cv-show/
  13. I think we will have a look at a Disco. My Ifor is 2600kg and the stock trailer 2500kg so an outlander wouldn't be an option
  14. So how bad is the drink problem when using as a car on short trips?
