I don't know if anyone has done a thread like this, but I've been meaning to do something like this for a good while.
I'm retired now and have no out going other than food and utility bills, not well off, but comfortable.
I've bought quite a few bits and pieces from China, tarps, hammocks...
I was talking to a local goat farmer a few weeks ago, he mentioned 'skinning permit' for farm animals, but didn't know where or anything about it. Does any one here have any info about this or has he mistaken this for a slaughter house permit ?
I've been given a Baofeng UV-5RA by a friend who didn't know how to set it up, well neither do I, but would like to know how, is there any one in the Lincolnshire area that can show me how to do it, or is there a REALY simple guide ?
First off, sorry about the quality of the photos.
I got the blade off Dave at the BushMoot this year, and wanted to do something 'original' with it, so the scale are in a lovely red coloured yew tree that was felled from a church in nearby Louth, the colouring comes from the nails that have...
Pink Sally and I are planning a trip from mid Jan to the end of Feb to Chiang Mai in Northern Thailand ( very few sex tourists in the Northern Borders, alot quieter ) spending most of the time in the hilltribe villages, working on some new skills.
Is any one else going to be in the CM area ...
I've been given a load of old knives ( filleting, kitchen and others ) about 15 in total, would any one like me to bring them to the moot ?
Handles would soon knock off for re-handling, don't know if we can mod the blades at the Moot, but its something else to do.
I know it's short notice, but, I'm going to collect some flint for the Bush Moot this Saturday, any one want to meet up for a wander and a brew of tea/coffee ?
I'll be parking up at the Waterside Road Car Park in Barton-upon-Humber about 10 am, walking west along the Humber Bank to a small...
Picked up an old Harper stove from a car boot sale for a couple of quid, stripped and cleaned it, new wick and mica screen, quite happy with it, using BBQ lighter fuel in it to keep the smell down. kicks out some heat, planning on using it in the lavvu in the winter. Peanut butter jar for scale...
Found this on ebay, http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/321109642557?ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1423.l2649
Bison Lavvu, no import duty, seems a good price.
Any feedback could help me make up my mind.
Does any of the collective have an idiots guide on how to service a peak 1 400 stove.
Just found my old one, it hasn't been struck up for at least 10 years, thought I'd try and service it, before firing it up.
I've been given a aluminium military water bottle, the out side is ok, so is the seal, but the inside has white pitting/growths, which I assume is oxidization.
How do you safely clean the inside ? or should I cut it up an use it for something else ?
I'm talking about powdered snuff, not the films :)
Been a snuffer for quite a few years, and wondered if there are others on here ?
My favorites at the moment are: Willson of Sharrows' Dr J.R. Justice or Chief Quality Red Bull.
If you have a fav, let me know, I'm always up to try the...
I'm interested, but, I'm just getting over a year of deep depression, and I'm not very good in crowds or stranger yet, is there any one else who's suffered this and been to the moot, can they let me know if this is a safe place ( no I don't want fixing, just to be treat like others ) and can you...
So, I've been round here a little while, and decided to show some of the knives I've made and restored/modded.
Seeing other peoples work was quite intimidating, such good work, but, we all have to start some where :)
