    Re: Cake crusherThe cake cam

    They are always appearing on eBay Jack. Always interesting to hear the different names for different parts of the country. Cake crusher and turnip cutter were used here but the latter was normally...

    Dunno. I wondered if there was a chance that the cellophane had accrued some moisture somehow and it had got into the battery compartment. But even when boxed they are kept in a drawer in a desk in a...
  3. Re: Stupid question but.............................

    It gets more creey by the day. I have discovered something over the weekend that I find truly bizarre. Last Friday evening I packed both gauges away, in their respective boxes, but this time not...
  4. Re: Stupid question but.............................

    I put them both away today without the cellophane bags, i.e. just in their respective plastic boxes so we'll see if they switch themselves on over night. Just seems a bit bizarre to me. Unless I've...
  5. Re: Stupid question but.............................

    I emailed Sealey and they've never heard of it happening. When I've finished with either of the gauges I put them back in their little cellophane bags and then put them back in the plastic case and...

    I have a couple of these Sealey digital verniers and both of them switch themselves on when not being used and left in their cases, resulting in short battery life. 2177 One does...

    Re: Classic allsorts!

    The only Vincent motorbike that I ever encountered was a Vincent "Thousand" I think it was called. Was it a 4 pot ? It was a damn big bike compared to my Fanny B. :D

    Thanks again FF. Not sure when I will able to get to it next but I'll keep you posted. Another alternative is for you to get on your push-bike again, get onto the M40 and get off at gate 15 and I'm...

    Re: Classic allsorts!

    I have noticed on i-Bidder that some auction houses don't publish results. I suppose if they've been giving stuff away it doesn't do them any good to publicise the fact !

    Wow FF, that is so helpful. Thank you. In reading all that a lot of it all came back to me but it is so long since I played with a small engine like this. In your opinion, is there anything that is...

    Hello FF. Missed the auction unfortunately due to other things cropping up. Shame that the auctioneers choose to not publish the results.

    Not agricultural but........................

    I have an old Howard Bantam rotavator. It hasn't run for at least 20 years having been stuck at the back of the shed. Of course it won't run now (no spark). Do I have any options to get it going...

    But you can't add up the numbers either For or Against in all other parties because we don't have the figures. Some of those who voted Labour will have been For, as will some (quite a lot) who voted...

    Re: Euro elections

    Looks like they're not quite ready for Labour either. They had a Labour MP who won with 22,950 votes and 48.1% of the votes in 2017 but yesterday they managed a lowly 10, 484 votes (less than half...

    Re: Massey Ferguson baler in haylage?

    We've all broken that rule and in my case many times. I used to run two balers and some of my customers would mow, or tell me to mow, almost regardless of the weather. For my own farming business I...

    That is always a difficult one. Yes, you are correct insofar as slacker bales allow the air into them a bit more but the problem with that is that after they have dried out they are not easy to...

    The main thing is not to panic. There are a couple of ideas that you might care to consider but it all depends on the quantity of bales. If it's only a few hundred (and it will get expensive in...
