Re: Gadgets everywhere

This thread is nuts! Are you genuinely worried that because a washing machine has lots of red lights and an electronic control, you are at risk? Surely electricity continuity is the bigger risk to your standard of living? Or water supply? Or ability to buy detergent? That internet-of-things will be...

Re: Metal detector

Can you get hold of some debris netting that scaffolders use to catch the arrows behind the butts? Would it even work I wonder? I have some on the allotment, keep meaning to take the longbow up for a play... If you are thinking of the green nylon(?) stuff then no it doesn't work. We tried it some y...

Re: Power tools

I went to a tool show a while ago and looked at a dewalt battery mower. To be honest i was thinking they would be quieter although in reality they are as noisy as a petrol mower. The mower uses two 18v batteries and the guy demonstrating it said that i'd be able to use my existing batteries. "I don'...

Re: Power tools

I've used bosch , dewalt and hitachi cordless sds drills and have considered getting one but so far my corded tools have sufficed. I'm happier with corded in that they seem to live longer although that might be because people abuse cordless tools expecting them to be exactly the same as a corded job...

Re: Power tools

I've worked with several makes over the years and broadly agree that power tools were probably better in the past. Bosch , Makita and Dewalt have all seen a bit of a drop in quality . Saying that i still have power tools from all of them . My dewalt cordless drill i still use on an almost daily basi...

Re: No cost or low cost preps

Our local tip now has a re-use shop where all usable items like this are sold back to the public. Gas bottles, unused tiles and some other bits are also explicitly left in areas that allow others to help themselves. Everything sold or taken is one less thing to pay landfill tax on. Maybe your counc...

Re: No cost or low cost preps

he explained about bin raiding....most supermarkets don't say anything All1 Please don't do this. Regardless of the morality of of it (I've no issue with it) it is theft and you could be prosecuted for it. On a similar note my father worked for the council in the refuse department and barely a day ...

Re: Storing diesel? Long term?

How much are you thinking of storing? Or perhaps how much do you use? The 50 gallon drums would seem a decent enough idea. I store mine in jerry cans and that decision is based on ease and that i don't use a huge amount so a 50 gallon drum would spend a lot of the time either partly full or being to...
