  1. I recently dropped my R10 off to him and he told me 10 to 14 day turn around and I didnt hear a thing so after 3 weeks I tried phoning e-mail and text no reply. So I drove over and when I got there he couldnt find it!! after 20 mins of searching we found it hidden in amongst a pile of boxes but fair play to the guy he dropped what he was doing and stripped it down and I watched him machine the regulator block out and build a new one from scratch. I returned 2 days later and he re assembled the action in front of me pointing out all of the work that he had done along with the new shroud he had asked me to bring the scope so that he could machine a couple of risers to enable the scope to clear the new shroud then it was put over the chrono and 50 pellets put through it . Now it shoots like a dream and he gave me a little discount all in all I would have no hesitation in recommending him his attention to detail is second to none and it was a joy to watch him work

    Anyone Still Smoke A Pipe?

    It can happen thats why you should have a few pipes smoke one then let it cool and if you rest it against a stand the tar pools and sets and it cleans up easily Modern pipes have filters which help

    Tax Question

    Get in and see the tax man if you have no slips then take bank statements YOU are liable for any tax owed I had a problem a few years ago when my boss cocked up and I owed £4500 a couple of meetings and all was sorted tax codes adjusted and 35% was written off Get it sorted sooner rather than later

    Anyone Still Smoke A Pipe?

    Ive smoked a pipe for the last 5 years and good quality baccy is hard to find I have a 20 mile round trip to a proper baccy shop I buy loose and mix my own come to think of it I started wearing a flat cap at the same time and I got a cravat for xmas but as Ive just turned 50 I guess its ok I have a nice little collection of pipes and I should get cracking on building a smokers cabinet to store them in

    Beer Fridge up and running

    Just finished this little project for my home brew it can chill down to -7 and heat up to 30 degrees using a 60 watt tube heater Had a long wait for the temp controller coming from China and a bit of head scratching to wire it all up This should help when Im low temp fermenting At the moment there is a Yorkshire beer kit in the keg next project will be a German style lager that will need 3 months lagering at 5 degrees Next job is to install a couple of taps in the door for easy pouring!! So when Im working in the shed NO more having to go in the house for a beer
