Re: Headlight adaptor:could someone measure their Joystick thickness please?

It's items like this that really makes me think I should invest a bit of time and money into a 3D printer!

Re: Headlight adaptor:could someone measure their Joystick thickness please?

I got my (late) mum a nitecore torch, uses a 18650 battery and then found the mount for the joystick/diablo worked really well. Tis all just a 18660 down the centre innit.

Re: Metal rod bending - racks

Catching up with the forum again. I'm enjoying this thread, keep us posted Jameso. I've not got much to add that's not already been covered.

with a custom plate (it would be, wouldn't it?) There does seem to be a correlation between having a vanity plate and poor driving standards.

Re: Go Outdoors set to go in to administration

I must admit, like Bob said, I found the range of stuff they sold a bit strange. You havelarge amounts of cheap tat, next to proper stuff from Rab, Montane, leatherman etc. etc. I liked them, because round my way the staff were often actually outdoor enthusaists and if you ever spoke to one, they'd ...

I have some old henry hoover tube, with the plastic end - that works nicely for 1 1/8. for tapered and 1.5", I've used a holesaw on some wood to make the correct size wooden crown race setting tool and twatted that with an oversized tube so it's nice and even downward force. In fact - you can see me...
