  1. I can supply you what you need, I'm a one man band and demand is high so there's always a waiting list, one of the pitfalls of supplying a great product at a good price. I'm working on getting waiting times down and streamlining how I conduct the admin side of business which should mitigate from missed or delayed orders. The quality is worth waiting for though. The difference in depth and the extra slack in my nets over others being sold commercially is plain to see.
  2. I cant say anything about final prices but the other two guys involved have been told from day one, we ain't doing this and taking the piss on the price. Money is not the motivation behind this for me.
  3. I've never said I'm making a new ferret finder, those that I've spoken to have always been told "we" There's 3 of us in this project and always has been from day one. Cloning a Mk1 locator isn't difficult and if that's what I wanted then it could of been done a long time ago. Why copy something like that and not try and improve on it? Its not something I could do with my skill set. The engineer who's the brains behind this project designs stuff like this for a living, unfortunately since Covid hit he has had some serious family issues,,, I won't go into details as its not my place to sa
  4. I'm still alive and kicking, the opportunity to buy this place was too good to pass up. Its taken a lot of hard work and I'm glad it's almost finished. I'm having a rethink into how I conduct business as to improve customer service and cut out the waiting times and the odd missed order. Bear with me guys, this will be like a well oiled machine before long.
  5. Still about mate. Sorry, left the phone in my truck thats still parked in the hospital from a procedure on my spine.
  6. Jok, your boxes are made with pride, that's plain to see. Folk who have that attitude towards their work will always produce better quality than those that only have an interest in the ££ note.
  7. Get an old jacket and remove the buttons and anything else than could snag on your net. Use the arm or leg out of an old bit of clothing to make a quiver to hold your pegs, use the rest of the garment to make a pouch to store your net and sew it into your jacket. Job done.
  8. Thanks Arry, I make them out of marine ply as well. light as a feather, you dont even know they're on your back. I want to make myself a marine ply box for Christmas, just got to convince her indoors she has to pay for it.
  9. I've not posted on here for ages, Ive been busy as ever and added a bit more to my workload. Here's some of the ferret boxes I've been making.
  10. We are all different, I personally prefer my style of basket, the medium one is my go to basket when i'm out on my own. I've made quite a few other types of baskets over the years, some were good, some bad. I made a few identical to the master hunter basket, it works better than the standard baskets but I didnt get on with them and gave them away to an old boy down wiltshire way. With regards to the netting, to me its the most important part. I've had my nets made with quality nylon, plus a few other tweaks, makes it soft as silk and ive added a little more depth than the standard gear others
  11. Back is still f*cked, on permanent pain killers etc which are knocking the shite out of me but hey ho could be worse. I dont know how folk get on with an 8z or 10z longnet, 6z gets a tad heavy if your running about with a fully loaded basket. imagine picking up a wet 100 yard 10z traditional longnet
