How tall are the spades in the picture? Both half's, I was looking at scrap kicking around and thought I might make one but I don't have a rucksack to measure

Made a couple now. M20 capscrew welded to the bottom half, machined m20 insert welded inside the top half. Drill through the 2 halves including the thread put a small nut and bolt through to stop twist. Strong and full size.20190524_120916.jpg.c7636239e85fe516b06c6311df3b7fba.jpg

No reason it wont be as strong if done right. I've dug decent depth with one and hung off it without any trouble.

      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
