  1. Hi, i buy from Dickies on the internet pick your kit,some uniforms 2 for 1 polo shirts are very hard wearing used these uniforms from Dickies for past 5 years. Corprotex in Manchester are a uniform company do embroidery.
  2. How about self drive vehicle platform? SMART platforms in Trafford park do a daily hire, cheaper than scaffolding.
  3. Hi couldn’t you use wheelie bins? Or could you use the hippo bags that B&Q sell. Or the bulk sand / gravel bags the B&Q use .
  4. Hi did try FB but found to many people asking stupid questions, then not wanting to pay the price. Was advised to offer incentives like discounted services. But in the end closed FB down, joined Checkatrade and haven’t looked back ,along with my free listing and some work word of mouth doing ok.
  5. Fenn trap in a adapted bird box, this particular box will take Magnum body grip traps. Wicked set up and ideal if you don’t want people to know you are trapping. Check traps every 12/24 hours.
  6. Nice gun,so quite and very effective.
  7. Hi all nick here, recent email from BASC says there are three re schedules covering our bird pests . Since I shoot pigeons which are feral and protecting the risk of disease to the general public under schedule 35. now forgive my vague information, but please check with BASC as the information is there for us all to see. I intend to print off and keep with me whilst I do my work. You must bare in mind all alternatives have been tried before the final action is required.
  8. Good morning looking to store wood to dry out now I have a garage and a shed. Can these be used. .? Or do you need something specific. I was advised to get a dual fuel burner . Is there any recommendations for logs for drying? Cheers Nick
  9. Again my mate Steve, on one of his last assignments was to assist a fellow officer clear a reservoir of ordinance, as they checked the mud flaps of the reservoir they came across a propeller sticking out of the mud. Tied a rope to the end and attached other end to to the Land Rover. Off they go driving and pulling the stuck propeller. Within mins there’s a very loud ping ! The propeller comes clear of the mud flies upwards and over takes the land rover, to there horror the other end of the ordinance is complete and is deemed a Live Mortar ! Well this dam thing over takes land rover and hits the hillside and detonates with a huge bang, mud everywhere and a bloody crater in the hillside.much to there horror! The farmer turns around and quickly says what a place to put a duck pond you could of made it Level!
  10. What with No batteries! That would definitely give her a Bang
  11. Ok , this is Nikk the newbie as I call myself, friend of mine is a retired EOD officer and a good mate to. Meny years ago he calls into a road side cafe on the way home from holiday. Having entered the main hall he notices a gun metal looking object near the receptionist, looks at it and the receptionist says what you think! He replies your a brave lady in a slight risen voice , as the foyer was rather full! She says why? O ! As that lump of metal is an unexploded Bomb, she replies sod off it’s been there for years! Within the next 10 mins the place is evacuated as the devise is varified by present bomb officer as a live ordinance! 500lb unexploded lump ! The rest of the story u can imagine! But safely defused and removed .
  12. Nice To hear from you, glad you are still about.
