  1. It's called table tennis if you are serious about it They make bats as well. If they'd had the top handles on ebay earlier I would have got one instead of the Chinese one I bought.
  2. Once our fire is lit it doesn't make smoke and if there is any it goes up the chimney with the draw from the warm air. I rattle the ash into the bottom pan then lift it out and put the box I made over it so it doesn't get in the house. I use a little rechargeable vacuum for the hearth and tip it all on the garden and dig it in.
  3. What's the difference between a buffalo and a bison ? You cant wash your face in a buffalo 🙄
  4. Snowing here and settling, wet stuff though 😝
  5. Common sense says it, one rule for them and another for us.
  6. A loose tie wrap round the handle works
  7. Are the saws the same apart from the thickness of the con rod little end ? You could try a couple of 1mm washers either side of the little end bearing but it might be fiddly getting them in there.
  8. I had one do that and it had the cleanest carb anywhere till I tried another coil. Very perplexing.
  9. You want to scrap the old clunker that got stuck, I'd offer to take it off your hands but you're too far away 😷
  10. I don't take my saws to the tip, it's probably nervous 😱
  11. I had to strip and clean the carb on a Chinese top handle that had chain oil in the fuel tank. It was like glue in the metering side and it smoked like a goodun for a while after it started but it was fine after it settled down.
  12. I bought some of the Northern Arb 3/16" files and they seem fine for the amount of use I give them.
  13. Zinc passivating can be gold, commonly used to extend shelf life.

    Merry Xmas

    Happy Christmas everybody 🌲
  15. I have a BSA .177 Cadet that must be 70 years old. It was my dad's and I used to shoot with it when I was a lad, 68 now. I made a new leather piston washer for it a while back and it's still a good gun.
