Could you not use them in place of bricks for your BBQ? Or for building a herb bed?

Re: My best charity shop buy so far!

So, here's my guide to the local (and not so local) charity shops lol!!! What an excellent idea! I've noticed that in some places around here charity shops are getting thin on the ground...but seem to be burgeoning in others! My experience suggests that small towns seem to be better served than cit...

Re: Does anyone know where I can buy...........? Help please?

I hesitate to mention it...but have you considered plastics? I've had a fair bit of experience working with Tufset and Acetal and both are pretty tough materials - acetal is particularly good for friction and wear resistance and not as brittle as Tufset. You can buy both through RS or Farnell and pr...

I now need to load my pictures onto photobucket but am unable to do so. Any idea what I am doing wrong? The new uploader at Photobucket is Flash-based I th...

Re: Does anyone know where I can buy...........? Help please?

Currently I am looking for 2 pieces of brass about the same dimensions as a cigarette packet. Do you mean the same thickness as a cigarette packet too - eg 25mm bar - or are you just looking for some thin sheet brass the same size as one side of a cigarette packet? The problem with most sources of ...

Re: 101 uses for tin cans

I had an elderly relative who used to make art out of sliced up tin cans. This varied from simple punched tin folk art to ornate decorative "masks" using quite intricate patterns cut out and riveted together. He had friends and family collect those large instant coffee cans for raw materials... You ...

Re: What music are you people into?

I'm what one of my exes described as a "rock goblin" I scurry about from sub genre to sub genre (metal, modern, goth, rock&roll...). Nice definition! :c) I listen to anything from Tom Waits to The Clash to Frank Zappa and back again via anything folky/rootsy. I also like some modern classical and j...

I was all set to ask if I could come along on Saturday too...when I suddenly realised it had happened last Saturday. That would've been a long wait under the Scott monument... :c)

Re: 101 non-swear words

Our 12-year-old has started using "Cake!" as an expletive... This is uncannily close to a trend among some friends many many years ago of stringing together any combination of the words "fruit", "cake", "bum" and "bowl" as an expression of joy, disgust, exasperation or otherwise. As in "Awww...fruit...
