Re: New Shed questions

Or, if you're really skint & don't care about the environment or your own health (it can give you a bit of a headache), a 50/50 mix of diesel & used engine oil will also do the job.

Close range isn't an issue but stretching out the distance to 75m I'm missing quite a lot :-( You'll technically need permission fr...
