    Which glue

    Hi, I'm assuming this is part of a timber structure. I would go down the path of putting a star connector between the timbers and then if, in the future, you need to take the structure apart you can without having to destroy the integrity of the structure. 'Gluing up' will make this much more...

    Recommended stock supplier?

    Hi, using a scrappie is all well and good but how do you know the difference between rusty mild steel and something like cast steel? If you can give it a spark test then all well and good.
