Thread: Wasp trap - suggestions please
21/08/2019 11:40:22

Thanks for all advice. Wasps must have being reading this thread as numbers have dropped like a swatted insect over he past few days - probably coming to the end of their season.

After catching almost 100 wasps in three traditional jam jar traps this morning - I assume some kind neighbour has a nest of which they are unaware - any and all suggestions on the latest spec would be much appreciated.

I have found two lengths (3/4" x 1/8" x 1/16" x 6" of parting off blanks branded Osborn UK which must be 50 or 60 years old. Anyone know the company and/or quality of their products?

Thread: Attachment to make 'rattle can' easier to use.
20/06/2019 15:54:35

Many thanks to XD 351, Alan Lloyd3 and JasonB who guided me to the excellent CANGUN1. Just used it for the first time and it is just what I needed - easy to use and control.

Now how do I get the smell of radiator spray paint out of the house!

Anyone know of an attachment which fits on an aerosol can to make spraying easier which works - it is the old arthritis issue again. Tried one of the plastic designs which required more rather than less finger pressure.

To those I have upset, apologies. To those I have excited, thanks. To the rest of the 'readers' enjoy what ever you have pleasure doing.

Dave, why not replicate a 'Very Quickly'. Transfer style not important.


Thread: Irish Road Racing season on TV
01/05/2019 20:45:30

The Irish Road Racing season is flagged off this coming Tuesday on BBC NI TV - and the net - with the Cookstown 100 at 22-35. Enjoy.

For Dave of the NSU Quickly Thread - tuned examples were raced 'back in the day' when I was a first aider. Well with no personal transport it was a cheap way of getting to the races and often having the best view!

Thread: Telephone / Internet Scams
18/02/2019 09:33:27

An elderly friend plays along when he receives a scam call.. When asked to switch on his pc he explains it is another room and it will take a little time as he uses a walking stick. He then walks away from the phone, drops a biscuit tin and shouts as in pain for the caller to call an ambulance as he thinks he has broken his hip.

Without exception the line goes dead.
