  1. Thanks . I'll try to not wash the dog in it then![emoji33] [emoji88]
  2. Thanks for the tip. I'll have a look at his channel.
  3. Thanks. Can you remember what size you went for?
  4. Hi all. Merry Christmas. I'm looking at ultrasound cleaners for saw carbs. Any recommendations or warnings? Thanks in advance. [emoji319]

    Thanks shave. I'll keep my eyes open. Can the carb be swapped for anything else or just refurb what's on it?

    I have been gifted a 119. Compression is low and all rubber has perished . Is it possable to get parts?
  7. I started using aspen after I had carb issues. Had it cleaned and rebuilt. Since then it's only had aspen. I only cut for myself and 5l of fuel can last me up to 9 months. Before aspen I had issues with my saw which I now know was bad fuel. Arbtalk first introduced me to aspen and I've been singing it's praises ever since. Are we going to see the combi set up that the aspen can fits into with an oil can attached?
  8. I've been using aspen for over 2 years and love the stuff. Not had any issues due to bad fuel, no headaches and not a drop of wasted fuel. And my local husky dealer (skyland equipment) stocks it.
  9. They are good quality rods. I've seen some places recommend sweeping a flue 4 times a year if constantly burning. I guess I'll sweep 3 times a year. I have notice a slight smell from the fire when the flue/chimney is congested. I have been quoted £65 to sweep a flexi flue . And that's not power sweeping. I'd say they will pay for themselves in no time. And I do like good kit.
  10. £238 including the bag. I always prefer to buy once.
  11. Very close. 3.5mm . But good shout on the line.
  12. They went over my initial budget but really easy to use and very well made. The large button is a positive click but easy to release when required.
  13. I finally bought some rods. Big button power sweep 12mm. Fantastic bit of kit would highly recommend. If you send them a message you might get a small discount. Very helpfully chaps. https://www.chimneyrodsdirect.co.uk/Big-Button-Lock-12mm-Liner-Kit-Flu-Flex-Rods-257857.htm
  14. I had a play with a dry ash branch. Feels much better. And I removed the axe side due to nearly hitting myself in the face when it dislodged as I was picking up logs. Scorched it with a blow lamp just for fun.
  15. Hi. I've not got any rods yet. I've seen some for about £100 which look like they will do the job. Flexible with a brass screw joint. When I get them I'll update this tread.
