    Help? StealthCam power issue

    Hi folks, I found my old StealthCam the other day and have been checking it out to see if it's still usable. Everything looks clean in it, no rust or damage to the battery connectors etc. I put batteries it in and turned it on - took a bit of jiggling of the batteries to get the menu to come...

    Home-made Hammock under-blanket (duvet) for Hennessey

    I'm having a clear out and finally letting go of a bunch of stuff that I've had for ages. One item is a home-made hammock under blanket for a Hennessey hammock I made before the group buy for the first BCUK one got made. (I got one of those too!) It was made to the pattern that was about at...

    Clearout - loom

    Having a bit of a clearout, and found a tabletop loom that has been in storage for a couple of years... :) I picked it up at some point a few years ago and never actually used it. I don't have the time or space now, so I'm happy to pass this on to someone who will get some use out of it...

    rabbit skins - would anyone be interested if available?

    Hi all, I shoot the odd rabbit occasionally, and have always just disposed of the jackets - I had six rabbits yesterday, and as the bin men were due early this morning, I bagged them up and they went out with the trash as usual. It only occurred to me just now that someone else may have...

    Help me find a knife?

    I've been doing some searching on the web, trying to find a particular style of knife, but haven't quite found what I'm looking for. Maybe some of you sharps fans can help me out? I have the BRKT Northstar - it's close to what I'm looking for but the blade is a little short and since I have...

    Meindl boots (size 41)

    My feet are now too big for these boots, even with just thin socks, so they may as well go to someone else who can use them instead of sitting around my house gathering dust... :) They are goretex, dark blue, and in good condition, but do need a new pair of laces. I've replaced the original...

    Hello again...

    Been away (from the forum) for a couple of years now; we moved house and everything got moved to the back of the priority list while we got settled in, renovated, started a new business, etc. etc. etc. We're (fairly) sorted out now, although I still have lots of stuff in boxes, and haven't...

    Help needed for translation to Finnish...

    Hopefully Abbe or someone is looking in, as I need some help with translation to Finnish. As some of you may know, I'm off to Finnish Lapland in a couple of weeks time. Although I hope to get in plenty of outdoor activity, the real reason for going is that a freind of mine is getting married...

    Give away...

    Another give away in the last of my house clearance... :) I found in total 16 bottles of mead (after opening one to test it). It is fizzy, and discussion seems to suggest that this is secondary fermentation rather than anything nasty going on. It may well benefit from being put back into a...

    Antler

    Found this piece of antler while sorting through boxes in the loft. I was going to just chuck it away, as it looks very porous and not much good for anything, but before I do - can anyone find a use for it? Happy to just pass this on to anyone who wants it... The length is...

    Lost treasure?

    Ok, so I'm clearing the loft as we're moving house... Most of the stuff up there is complete junk, but as I move boxes and bags, I look inside one box to find - 12 bottles of mead... I made it about 10 years ago, and must have just boxed it up and put it in the loft when I moved last time...

    Poultry Housing

    OK, having decided that we're not going to get to run a smallholding for at least two years while we sort out new locations etc., and we're due to move out in less than a month, we've decided to sell off our existing kit. First in the sale, two poultry houses: http://www.ascott.biz/item5.htm...
