    Monkey Puzzle

    Hi I think that’s a good idea , one idea a fellow Arab talker mentioned to me when I had my accident was like an insurance type thing hear on arbtalk say we all put in a tenner and then buy some saws and invest the rest when one of us gets burgled or has an accident then there would be some help , like a saw to borrow until you can get a new one etc you get the picture what do you think , back to the monkey puzzle my mate who runs a sawmill is probably going to help me with it if I am lucky I might even get it milled on a woodmizer in with the deal
