Weather is supposed to break later tonight, though it's been much cooler here today.

Our bulk Lego order has arrived this week, so off to help count bricks tomorrow. Bit over a quarter of a million of them lol

this is the bits of the pulley I found in the middle of the tree lump
WP_20210724_16_50_19_Pro.jpg

like an old washing line pulley ..... maybe they were using co-ax to hang the washing on :giggle::giggle:
finished emptying the trailer again this morning, 'fore it rained - which it's barely done all day here :cool:
WP_20210724_20_05_45_Pro.jpg

and in light of the lack of precipitation, thought I'd resize some lumps ... with the aid of the Cranab and 'Drema .... can't move some of these by hand

WP_20210724_19_05_21_Pro.jpg

I'd have finished this lot today if Charlie hadn't played me up on/off all afternoon ..... this lot's pretty dry and the dust is epic ... have had to strip and clean him several times :mad: ... gave up when he refused to play ball, late afternoon .... not getting fuel .... new filter and line required ... bloody sure it's sucking air some where ...... usually a brilliant saw :(

WP_20210724_15_56_33_Pro.jpg


burning bin full of shavings/chips, smouldering away for the evening ... 'nother bin ready for a refill , 'bout midnight hopefully ;):giggle:
well happy that the only rain we've seen all day has been one torrential ten minute downpour, 'bout 2 ..... very different to the forecast :cool:

Nice! I spent the day counting Lego bricks - our Lego user group (LUG) does a bulk buy once a year and we had in excess of 100,000 pieces land for counting!

Lots of lessons learnt, all counted pretty much by hand, with Handwritten stickers. Next time, things will be different!

Would a set of scales not be a better option? And maybe a calculator for the reely harrd summs?… 😂

Arguably the best mid-size saw Stihl have made (the filler caps are better on recent models).
I now keep a spare fuel line/filter on hand because they do develop pin-holes after a few years.

Last time mine wouldn't start, I discovered my nephew had been "helpful" and retuned the carby.
(both carby screws done up tight)

it totally 'did my swede' yesterday .... it's usually a first pull starter and just about creased me pulling the bloody thing over and over ... getting too bloody old :( ..... the spirit is willing, but the flesh ain't what it used to be (and has had a bit of a caning the last couple of weeks :rolleyes::giggle: )

Scales would have been a brilliant idea. Sadly I only had it when I arrived. Two other people had them which meant we could double check stuff, but sheesh, it's hard work without them! We will be more prepared next year.
