    Re: Metal detecting- Yes or No?

    I can see the difficulty in the first meeting, cold calling is not a good idea but what about this ? Write just a few hand written letters (not photo-copied) saying who you are and what you are...

    Hello again MickyTommo and thank you for your comprehensive replies and the good manners that you have shown in providing them and an acknowledgement of the position of the farming profession. Having...

    You're not "going soft" at all Lalans. You appreciate the beautifull bird that is the lapwing, the same as the rest of us on here. I used to see loads of them years ago but haven't seen one for ages...

    Re: Metal detecting- Yes or No?

    Hello MickyTommo. No one has answered you yet and you do at least deserve some response. Here is my take on the matter and it is one that a lot of people may disagree with, including yourself, but...
  5. Re: Well someone's got to mention this...................................

    One of the problems with the peewit (lapwing or green plover) is that they usually make their nests in open ground. And also not usually much to the nest, often just a scrape with little nesting...

    Re: Massey Ferguson 35 Fuel Injection Pump Issue

    I had a customer who had a grey/gold 4 cylinder 35. I went to bale some hay for him one day, just after lunch. He went to start his tractor and grabbed the obligatory easy-start can and gave it a...

    Re: Oil seal on a teagle topper.

    Yes, it was in internal circlip, the type that has no eyes, just managed to get a small screwdriver behind it and ease it out. That was the easy bit. Then I had to remove a "protective washer" (No....

    Re: Oil seal on a teagle topper.

    O.K. Okay, I know it's a bit crude but it worked. I started to make a puller out of some 3/8" plate. Made a couple of strips to go on the top of "No. 8 - the adaptor" in the previous photos. and...

    Thank you wr. That was very useful. I have the topper resting on a trailer at the back and attached to a tractor at the front with the top link still attached. I had thought about tipping it on it's...

    Thank you Gentlemen. I had sort of reached the same conclusion that both of you have insofar as it's time for a puller or the gas axe. I just asked in case anyone had hit this problem before. I...

    Oil seal on a teagle topper.

    I have an 8ft off-set Teagle topper and one of the gearboxes that drives one of the blades is leaking oil so it's new seal time. But I am strugglilng with getting the gearbox off the topper and...
  13. Re: Well someone's got to mention this...................................

    Looks like someone is starting a gibbet on his gate. I used to get 6d (that's old pennies - 2.5p today) for a pair of magpie wings from the keeper. But a box of .410 cartridges was 4/-6d (four...

    As I understand it the reason is that all wild birds were always protected by law but a government a long time ago decided that certain species would be exempt from the protection. It now appears...

    Re: Why?

    In my view it's a bit of both. It is in any Government's interest to keep the price of food as low as possible. Imagine how the baying mob would behave on the streets of London if, Heaven forbid,...

    Re: Why?

    It just doesn't add up does it Jack. Let's say that your wheat yielded 2tns/acre so you needed to grow 28 tns-ish to buy the 5000. That's 14 acres. Let's say that those 14 acres today would yield 56...

    Re: Why?

    I am not sure because that was the year I had started contracting and I hadn't progressed to farming, but I think wheat may have been 20/ton but that sounds quite a lot and I stand to be corrected....
