    Elderberries - toxicity

    Hi I gathered a load of elderberries recently and stuck them in some vodka. Then I was reading about their toxicity and that they should be cooked before eaten. Will steeping in vodka have the same nullifying effect, or have I just created poisonous vodka?

    Cheap brass

    Hi all Any hints on where to get cheap brass, or brass that can be repurposed? I want a piece 70mmx20mmx10mm and I don't want to buy a piece of bar stock. I'm betting someone on here has the answer. Thanks

    Leather Sofa Patch

    Hi all We have a leather sofa. It's very much of the lived in/distressed variety. One of the cushions has developed a wear hole along a crease. The leather around it is still quite thick so I think if I glue a leather patch to the reverse it will all be fine and will stop the hole getting...

    Special Light

    "You don’t wear a badge that says I’m into bushcraft, it’s invisible – except for the special light that’s in the person’s eyes." Quote from here. Do you have a special light?

    Small scissors/snips

    Hi I'm after a small pair of scissors - preferably part of a multi tool, but where they are the main act - like a Leatherman Micra or Gerber Eclipse. I don't want just folding scissors. Has anyone seen anything like that? Knock off versions of aforesaid tools considered. Thanks

    Beaver Fever

    http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-devon-37616970 This story made me laugh. Some pictures of the damage would have been good, but online journalists are rubbish. I suspect that it's human beavers. That came out wrong - you know what I mean.

    DIY Brass Pins

    I'm sure this has been asked before. And at the risk of getting a slew of comments along the lines of "A piece of brass rod". Can I ask is there something that people have repurposed/cannibalised to make brass pins for knives? Basically I want a couple of brass pins and don't want to go...

    Help - new Jacket required

    Hi All I'm hoping the power of the BCUK collective can help. I want a waterproof jacket - ideally goretex. I'm not bothered whether plain or camo. The main thing is that it needs to be cheap. I seem to recall some ex RAF ones mentioned on here a while back, but can't find a link...

    Advice needed - flattening nylon webbing.

    I've got some nylon webbing that I'm re-using on a project. It has some kinks in it from it's previous role. Any suggestions on how to flatten it out? Normally I'd iron fabric, but am worried about damaging it - even if I started low and gradually increased the heat. Thanks
