    Literary agents

    Digit, You may have come across this already but there is a book called the writers and artists year book that lists publishers. (I think this is the correct one) Never read it, but my father-in-law has had a couple of books published (crime / thriller) and...

    Chicken Run

    Hi Guys, Gary wrote: - I'll have to print that off and show it to the wife.... :lol: Agree this is about animal husbandry rather than hunting. My intention was to demonstrate my attitude towards animals as a whole. That I am not against the killing of animals, but I am for the...

    Chicken Run

    I thought for a few moments before deciding to post on this topic as it's always going to be emotive. I eat meat. I like it. But I believe that every animal deserves a good life and a quick and as much as possible painless death. I grew up on a small holding, at various times we raised...

    Forum users' Planers & Thicknessers

    Lyndhurst 10x7 Planer Thicknesser Fit and finish is not perfect, but at the price I paid on an ebay auction ( not the full priced buy-it-now) I am very happy. Maybe the buy-it-nows are perfect and the auctions might have a few cosmetic blemishes? Who knows. It performs great, should have...

    Top form service from ...... Lee Valley

    Following on from my "Transtools - how not to look after customers" thread it's only fair to commend someone when they get it right. I recently bought a Veritas bevel-up jointer when working in the USA. I only got a chance to play with it when I got home and noticed a minor problem with it. I...

    Grand Designs - Glass in Wood

    Had to laugh when I saw this thread. I said exactly the same thing about the windows when watching Grand Designs last night and my wife call me a sad woodworking nerd. Nice to know I am not the only one :-) Ed

    Anyone on here make there own bread ?

    Bread machine here also. We had very poor results at first. The bread was yeasty no matter what we tried. Parents had no problem with the same machine, we pinch their yeast and flour and still had the same problem. In the end I deduce the only difference was the water coming out of our tap. So...

    Barry Burgess - RIP

    How terribly sad. Although I never met Barry, we chatted via PM'd when I sent him some shopnotes articles he was looking for. Without a doubt he was one of the characters that makes this forum so good. I will miss his contributions as I am sure many others will to. My condolences and...

    Hi Bredbin, The plastic cover with the big red button can be removed by taking out the single screw on the top. When inside you should see an adjustment bolt that can be used to adjust the cut off pressure at which the motor stops. From memory it may even have + and - markings stamped in the...

    Garage door security

    Yep - That's how the little b***ers got into my garage, just bent up a corner and crawled under and open it from the inside. They waited long enough for the insurance to pay out and then they came back again. Only this time just mild damage to the door frame and they did not managed to get in...
