    Jet Saw !

    Keeping your left hand warm wouldn't be a problem but carrying enough fuel for a day's cutting may be problematic.
  3. Trouble with such puny fines, is it sets a precedent and sends the message, that if you want to fell and you'll make a profit after the fact. Then go right ahead.

    Helmet help - Husky Forest technical

    If the ear defenders are not inserted all the way. Then invert each one, so that each muff in turn is pointing skyward; and push down into side socket until you hear/feel a loud snap. First one, then the other. Damn sight easier to push them in, than to try dragging them down and in.

    New DMM Perfecto carabiner

    In the end, a krab is a krab. So long as it's in good nick, functions with ease and is rated above the maximum load it will be expected to hold. Then the only things that can be improved, is lessening its weight and ease of use without detracting from safety.

    Merry Xmas

    Prepped veg for roasting and boiling. My veggie stuff is easy but the mountain of grub for the carnivores is still being prepped. Table is laid though and present packed. I'm not saying I've been good but I wrote my list twice. Does that count? My thinking, you don't get owt for nowt. But the fat man in the red suit is an easy target. If only he wasn't quite so quick. May you all have a good Yule and a great year. May you find peace and joy in equal measure. And perhaps something that makes a lot of noise too.

    Brit Girls - Fat

    I agree. As much as I whole heartedly support the NHS and want it to continue, it's only a matter of time, before this government succeeds in smashing it into the mud; and introducing private health care only across the board. So the wealthy will live in good health and the poor & needy will go to an early, painful grave.

    Pedestrian access and liability.

    Generally speaking, Joe Public are a law unto themselves. It doesn't matter what you do, if a pedestrian, cyclist or motorist wants to get from A-B, even if their chosen route happens to be the most dangerous path, then they will take it regardless of your best intensional. Also, you can't and indeed won't please everyone all the time. Their are always individuals or groups, that having been that way a hundred times before, are more than happy to be belligerent just to thwart your best laid plans. In short - it doesn't matter what you do, some will be happy, even thankful that you are showing care for their wellbeing. While other won't give a damn. And will happily ignore good advice just to be awkward or to take the shortest route or because they've survived thus far of sheer dumb luck or because in their mind, no one shall ever be above their intellect, so, they will go wherever they like when they like and let the world be damned. Children are children. Adolescents are just passing time between being a child and being an adult. Adults and and too often are, thick as two short planks and twice as wooden.

    Chainsaw Trousers & Electric Chainsaws

    Doesn't matter what powers the chain's movement. The fact is, that the chain is moving at great speed. If the chain is at all capable of cutting wood, then it's capable of cutting flesh. PPE gets you so far but it's a properly functioning brain which is the best protection.
