    Land Rover Defender 90 question

    For all those owners of the Solihull Spawn Of Satan, I have a couple of questions. Does the 200TDi have a foldable front window like the earlier TD models? I understand the 300 TDi does not?? How does this work? If the doors were removed, would this leave a frame upright, or would the...

    Norwegian Woolly Jumpers

    Back in the early 90's when i lived in Oslo for a while, my forlovede knitted me a traditional Norwegian jumper which I still have. The shops then were selling them at about £250!! The question is, does anyone, particularily our Norsk friends, know of any online retailers? So far the only one i...

    Another bowyers question: rasp files

    Where oh where can I get a suitable sized wood rasp for cutting the nocks on the bow? I've tried all the usual suspects and a few smaller tool shops but nothing but huge ones or needle files for metal. I know they exist as i have scrounged them in the past, but where can I get one now, and what...

    Tillering question for the bowyers amongst you...

    I've been knocking up (sorry...) a longbow made from ash backing and walnut belly of about 72" which just about reaches my draw of 30" (next one will be longer to make the draw more 'comfortable' for the wood). Trouble is, that the lower arm is definitely stiffer than the top. The lower arm...

    The famous Spacemonkey Hammock Bow knot

    Well a while ago I mentioned that I hang my hammock with a simple single bow at each end. Well I finally got around to taking a pic to prove it thus: and a close up: As can be seen, the lines are passed around the poor unsuspecting tree at chest height and carried UNDER each other...

    Wild Raspberries

    Don't laugh, but I've never found any before, which is a shame as I love raspberries but perish the thought at Tescos' prices. However whilst out in Savernake Forest today (below Marlborough, Wiltshire) I discovered that most of the undergrowth where I go is actually wild raspberry and it is...
