  1. Fen box still seeing plenty of action. It stay out all year next to the compost cone. Takes approx 20 rats per year.
  2. Go for it. In my opinion sharing ideas is the whole point of forums like this.
  3. Didn't have to wait long to find out the design definitely works. Brutal power with the DOC 200. Mr rat didn't know what hit him.
  4. Yes increases the power a bit but also the spacer between keeps the springs from sliding along and keeps them working at their full potential. Not had them self destruct yet and used them off & on over the past couple of years.
  5. Nice catch. Love the DOC traps. Easy to set and crazy power.
  6. Sorry bud, a bit late to reply but just saw your question. Kill bars made from heavy wire & bent in a vice with two 90 degree bends. Think i cut those ones out of an old oven rack. Drill a couple of holes in the victor & tap them in with a drop of epoxy or super glue.
  7. Was given a couple of broken DOC traps a couple years back. Finally got round to fixing them and made a couple of boxes to see how they preform. Bait basket on the underside of the lid which is inaccessible when lid is closed stops the victims buddy making a meal of the bait. Cable tie indicator so at a glance trap can b checked without opening lid.
  8. Mice in the shed again so I dug out the modded victor boxes. Caught two at the same time on the first setting. I can't quite work out how they are both lying on their backs....can only think they were on their way back out when it cracked them. Their heads are folded at 90 degrees to their bodies.
  9. My sort of knife....100% recycled.
  10. Either you are fast at making knives riohog ......or you are making about £6 per hour. Nice looking pair of knives.
  11. Latest knife laws, as of last month are making it a pain to post knives in the UK. Need proof of age before delivery. Posting outside UK is even worse with brexit export/ import duties. Loads of couriers are just refusing to carry knives. Can see it finishing a lot of Uk makers.
  12. Fantastic work as usual and nice photo's. A folder is a completely different kettle of fish to make. First one takes a lot of time to work out. Looks spot on that one and very functional. ATB Griff
  13. Just seen this now. Nice looking little forge. Finger not so nice. Angle grinder? Looks like it could do with a couple of stitches. Griff
  14. I do like the look of that one. The G10 is practical but the bog-oak looks classy.
  15. Stunning work as usual. Nice to see some variety in your designs. Griff
  16. This is one my son has had on the go for a while. The wrought iron is a piece i pulled out of a skip, just thought it was mild steel rod, only realized when it was being forged into a pair of tongs. The tongs got abandoned and the wrought iron put to a better use. The blade is leaf spring from a series 2 landy.

Blade: Spring steel with satin finish and domed mirror polished spine. Length five and a half inches (145mm), width one and a ha
  17. Seems to be an issue with the URL reader on the site, usually works fine. Uploaded a few direct from the laptop but not all of them as allowance maxes out at 14mb. Griff
