    Throwing knives

    Waynes set of knives are about 10-12 inches long by maybe 1 3/4 wide and 1/4 inch thick IIRC so your width seems about right but the thickness seems a little much. maybe just make a template and get the grinder out!

    Circular saw blade knife suggestions.

    Tactical or traditional?

    i have a 5.11 Rush 24 and i love the pack. I use it as a day bag when I'm teaching. the compartments mean i can get to everything easily. Things like a food temp gauge for when cooking.

    Just ate some rat bait...

    I've done that a few times Tone Done it with the bigger fen traps too - that hurts. especially if you allow the jaws to get some inertia and your fingers are at the end of travel! A few questionable words were heard!

    Just ate some rat bait...

    also rat bait is a slow acting poison. so they will eat many bags. generally they are based on an anticoagulant and the antidote is vitimin K. So if the rats are eating greens as well as your bait- you are just feeding them!

    Just ate some rat bait...

    Joking aside traps are often tripped without the animal in the correct position - or there long enough. if you melt the chocolate onto the trigger the animal has to nibble the chocolate off which is time consuming and sure to set the trap off

    Put sheath on belt without undoing belt - ideas wanted

    Many of the phone holders have a belt clip and then a leather flap sewn underneath with a press stud at the top. the belt clip slides over the top of the belt and the leather flap goes behind the belt and secures with the press stud stopping the pouch popping off the top. Works well.

    Help a luddite out please

    a Dictaphone type machine in your pocket with a lapel mic . it's a bit of a pain as the 2 files are separate but you can bring the video in and audio too. people often use a hand clap as a clapper board effect at the beginning so you can sync the 2 tracks easily. then you just treat it as normal...
