    I've always used Champion, Bosch or NKG. Usually Champion, but had a few failures with them. Sold a really good saw on ebay a few years ago and put a new plug in it for him, never tested it. That didn't end up going too well, he took it away to his farm without the old plug.

    Part 1 of 2, The Great train Robbery. Might not interest some of you but it was big news when it happened, only thing that got it off the front page was JFK a few months later. I remember it all, they found Ronald Biggs here years later and he got away to South America. Most of the money was never found, 2.6 million English pounds then is equal to around $60 million US now so it was a big deal. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Great_Train_Robbery_(1963) Most of them didn't end up too well though. https://www.bbc.com/news/uk-21619150 Was interesting to me anyway. <iframe width="560" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/Foyb5HCeM6s" frameborder="0" allow="accelerometer; autoplay; encrypted-media; gyroscope; picture-in-picture" allowfullscreen></iframe>

    It's not that hard, you get used to it after a few years. Slow cooked chicken leg curry tonight with stuff from the garden and brown basmati rice. I don't eat chicken skin so buy bulk legs and make them look like this.

    Ha, sounds like me when I went for the bone scan. I was only about five minutes away then, turned up Tuesday and it was for Thursday. They fitted me in anyway. Waiting for the verdict and this doctor came out with a real concerned look on his face. I thought that's it, I'm stuffed. He said "do you know you have a cracked rib". Yep, I've had a few. Best news that week.

    Sylvester Stallone, Chuck Norris and Arnold Schwarzenegger are sitting in a bar Sylvester Stallone says, “Guys, we should make a movie with the three of us, but I’m all out of ideas at the moment, I’m kind of bored with the standard action flicks.” Chuck says, “Guys, I’m bored of doing action movies too and I’ve got some ideas but you may not like them.” Sylvester says, “Let us hear it.” So Chuck continues, “All right, this may sound silly, but I was actually thinking about doing a movie on great classical composers.” That’s when Arnold throws himself in the conversation and says, “That sounds like a great idea! Sylvester, you can be Mozart, and Chuck can be Beethoven!” “And who will you be, Arnold?” “I’ll be Bach.” #-o

    I saw those so I made one for pushing the rakings up in, (no rocks) lost it in a load of chips somehow within a week, made another one. That was about 15 years ago, still got it. Might have used it a couple of times.

    Been pretty good here so far this year considering it's so dry. But a big out of control fire just north today, whole town evacuated this afternoon. Going to be hotter tomorrow and more wind so it doesn't look good. https://www.9news.com.au/2019/02/12/15/05/news-nsw-bushfire-tingha-northern-tablelands-advice

    I first saw it a couple of days ago, only got to page 23. There seems to be quite a few more. My saw was on that page, still can't believe that bird did that while I got the camera.

    Not bad but I was a bit of an Acker Bilk fan once, even went to see him when he was here. Not his best but it's jazz. <iframe width="560" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/xgOa5Z-QjqE" frameborder="0" allow="accelerometer; autoplay; encrypted-media; gyroscope; picture-in-picture" allowfullscreen></iframe>

    House of Flying Daggers, it was on while I was having dinner.

    Thanks for all the work you've done with this and before. I haven't bothered going to the homepage for ages, there's some good pictures on the Rotator. Lots of old ones of old members, some are still here. Edit. These guys still hang around. Some good Rotator pictures in this thread, someone needs to give it a bump. https://www.masterblasterhome.com/showthread.php?13688-Groovy-Rotator-Screenshots&highlight=rotator+screenshots Edit again. That picture just turned up in that thread.:laughing6:

    Yep. Especially when you're 300 miles from home and it's the second last cut and you forgot to sharpen the three spare chains before you left.

    They should re market that thing, it'd sell well in some places. You don't have Ikea? You're lucky, I can't stand the stuff but women seem to like buying it.

    Trifocals? I know people that have trouble with bifocals. I'm extra lucky there, I don't need glasses for anything. I like this one, colour is great without me adjusting anything. No manual with it but you can download one easy enough if you need it.
