Re: What is this called?

Those look like 'Cam lock' cargo straps (rather then ratchet cargo straps, which are the dinky version of the massive things truck drivers use)

And I like his...

Re: bioethanol fireplace

Many years before the council had put a pavement in outside covering over the airbricks causing the joists to rot out, so the previous owner had cast a slab (badly, no DPM and only cinders underneath). I had to rip the floor up and redo it (as well as getting damp-proo...

Re: Big container for leaf mould

Oh wow, I love that :lol: thanks ForgeCorvus. Sorry, it's the "hobby" aspect that we've talked about on here sometimes, that just sounds **amazing** :mrgreen: and also very practical as well as fun, because that sort of plastic really does split.

Re: What Preps are you doing this week? Part 6.

Been having a clear out of redundant prep-gear. Got a few paraffin lamps (not compatible with our health problems) and the Norfolk lidded-bucket mountain to rehome. Also going to flog the pushbike as I haven't ridden it for over a year. I have to wheel it the length of the garden, then carry it thro...

Re: What Preps are you doing this week? Part 6.

Its been a bit of a busy week for me. Sold some clutter at a local antique place Acquired a pre-owned shed, going to need to replace a couple of bits of 2x2 but otherwise its sound. Bought a long extension lead, so now I can have power in my work space without having to connect all the other leads I...
