  1. I can confirm that the weights stated are plenty adequate enough for dispatching of game and the beauty of the implements hasn't gone unnoticed with the other beaters!
  2. Not to panic yet, but thanks for tge offer. Just pricing things up. Could that sort of block be changed out for a joystick type control?
  3. Ok thanks. So i coukd be done relatively easily. Drybollox are new to me! I still climb with a prussik! What sort of costs do you think? Thanks
  4. Not sure where to ask buy here seems a start. Looking at getting a small loading machine for use in the yard, jobs to include lifting log bags, pushing fire in etc. Anf possible on site use. The machines i have wittled down. However one i have spotted only has two leavers, boom up n down and one for bucket action. If i was looking at a log grab or muck forks can an additional service be added to the machine for that purpose sn2d ram? It runs a 4cyl diesel donkey.
  5. Rabbits are easier than birds for quick dispatch, the priests ive made are 190 and 200gms. Looking online it seems an average weight.
  6. @Rhystree May i ask how much the fabrication was for the forks please. Ta
  7. I am here, someone call! Some old pictures somewhere from the cathedral of the falcon. They next there ev4ry year and are part of the fixtures. There also used to be a nesting pair at amberly chalk pits about 5 or 6 years back
  8. I think any item of sufficient solidness twatted on the head will be enough to dispatch the quarry. Have now made a brace and have four coats of spray lacquer, and the leather arrived for the handles. Pretty pleased with the results. Awaiting a field trip!
  9. Been poking in the shed last night and found some old twisted chestnut stems i had saved from a while back, and have played around with them today. Firstly for myself to see if they look any good will then do one for the good lady. Thanks for the replies, will keep in mind your offers. Have orderd some nice leather for the lanyard.
  10. Thanks Steve. Let me have a think and see if can find weights. Some examples i have seen have a shotgun shell cap inserted in tge end with and oz or 2 inbeded
  11. I wondered how long it woukd take, i wasnt disappointed !
  12. Any pictures? Looking for a similar type of design
  13. Well hello guys! Haven't posted for a good while, seen to be busy with the trees a bit of milling and competing with the dogs. I am.after a nice weighted hunting priest for dispatching game birds. Ideally weighted for the task at hand and of suitable weight and size for a lady. Dont want any massive tool like a policemans truncheon. Lookinh for some nice timber, ideally something exiting but not exotic. Thinking some nice burr oak, rippled or quilted maple or perhaps cankered ash. Who would be able to supply such an item and what type of costing please? Whilst this would be a xmas present it needs to be made sooner rather than later. Thanks Simon
