Re: Tools

What is it with Claas and 16 and 18mm spanners? Not needed to use them on anything else. 16 and 18 mm AF are ISO standard sizes. 17 and 19 are DIN standard sizes for the same threads.

Re: Gabberflasted

Have you a dog ... or 2 ... or 3? Big snarly, noisy things that let you know if anyone is around? We have 5, that make a lot of noise as soon as anyone turns in farm gate (a field away) ... & have a reputation! Nothing like their mistress then? http://www.falfiles.com/forums/images/smilies/whistlin...

Re: Cordless drill?

I don't think any of the decent ones are less than a ton these days. Oh, and you can use the base of the Ryobi as a hammer.
