    chainsaw sharpeners

    I use one of these if it gets really blunt/damged and just a suitable small round file by eye when out and about with the saw, only takes about 5 mins to touch up normally when you refuel (and have acup of tea :) ). cd

    Slate roofing insulation

    Hi Steve, I've not had the problem myself but my sister had a similar problem with her last house. She opted for the spray on stuff from a company called Renotherm and was very happy with the result. It sticks to the slates to keep them from slipping and adds considerably to the insulation. She...

    Is it me or is this odd?!

    Hi Paul, It was me that asked the question about them before, post is here for interest. While I ended up with what I wanted they were a bit slow getting it too me and I had to phone them, to get any sort of response. They answer the phone using a completly different company name too :o . cd

    would this be worth it

    If it goes for anything near that starting price that would be an amazing buy. At double that plus hiring a van and a round trip of 7-800 miles I would probably consider it if I hadn't just booked next years hols :) cd

    Wooden USB keychain (looking for suppliers)

    I know :shock: Saw some 2gb ones in costco last week for about £30. I did wonder about getting a cheap one stripping the plastic cover off it and seeing if I could turn something to fit it in. Might have to have a go at chasing threads though and thats not something I've really got on with. cd

    Wooden USB keychain (looking for suppliers)

    Hi All, I noticed these in the latest Rutlands catalouge and thought they might make nice and slighty different xmas presents but thought £25 for a kit was a bit steep. So has anyone seen them for sale anywhere else ?, preferably a bit cheaper. TIA cd
