  2. Pathetic workrate of rail arb gang

    Not on a possession or a block which is when most of the productive work takes place. Sighting distance! Had it once or twice when trains were running and it had to be a pea souper. Good things come............. to an end
  3. Pathetic workrate of rail arb gang

    Are you link up approved Joel or sponsored by the likes of Qts, homegrown, ground control etc. I've worked on it, NR day works and price work. Getting up at the crack of dawn to travel two hours to a site, leaving home at half 11 to do a nightshift and sacrificing your weekend to do a sat night shift. Working away! Yeah cushy number pal.

  7. Looking for Contacts

    Evening Arbtalkers Currently looking for contacts to subcontract to on a regular basis in the North West. Coming up to four years' experience on the saws and in the process of building up my own work. Unfortunately I'm not busy enough to purely rely / depend on this so I'm hoping to find someone who I can subcontract to on a regular basis. Based in Oldham I will travel up to an hour to a job site or yard. Please contact either via PM or email, neilbuckley82@gmail.com in the first instance. Thanks for reading Neil

    I bought a zig zag and tachyon at the apf. Easy to use and it rocks for moving and descending. I wouldn't go back to a prusik now.
