Nuts and bolts

Recommended Posts

Looking to get a new screw together spade done for this season, just looking for ideas how to connect the two, iv got a lad waiting to do the work just need to get the bits for him. 

I know it’s never gonna be as strong as a solid spade but seen as I’m paying for the work been done I want it as good as possible any ideas would be great and any pics to show the lad would be even better thanks 

thanks

Will get a photo of mine it’s a screw together coupling like the kind on the small army shovels I bought mine from a nut and bolt shop cut it in two and welded each fitting to either end I put a bolt through it after to keep the handle and mouth inline or it can be a pain in the arse when it turns I think I had to sleeve it the get the couplings to fit still a good strong shovel you could do a a metre or two with

I also ordered one from m, turns out making them takes about the same time as it takes Italian m (Michelangelo) to paint the Sistine chapel ceiling. Ended up making one with a tube that slips over the top, and hole drilled for a bolt and lock nut

      For those not already aware, Alison Johnstone MSP (Scottish Green Party) has tabled a Private Member’s Bill, which if approved would have a severe, negative impact on all forms of hunting with dogs (including terrierwork). It is presently out for public consultation and that consultation period ends on 15th September 2019, which is less than a month away. It’s essential that you and as many other likeminded individuals as possible respond before that date.
      Before responding you are advised to read the comments and notes of guidance provided by the Scottish Countryside Alliance and/or Scottish Association of Country Sports. These can be found at: https://www.countryside-alliance.org/getattachment/cd8b72ad-d577-4523-bbcb-5b19a6e89461/Alison-Johnstone-Consultation-Countryside-Alliance-Response_.pdf?lang=en-GB and   https://www.sacs.org.uk/media/uploads/cat-252/banning-fox-and-hare-control-in-scotland-sacs-consultation-guidance-for-members.pdf
      The survey is also available online and can be completed at: https://www.smartsurvey.co.uk/s/WildMammals/
      Be sure to complete the survey in full, including names and addresses. And no matter how frustrating, or ridiculous you may find some of the proposals, please remember “courtesy at all times”. There's no extra points for belligerence, or rudeness, the purpose of the exercise is to improve awareness, NOT to make any more enemies than we already have.
      Kindest Regards - Barrie
