As for signs:

Stainless Steel Door Sign Female Toilet Symbol 75mm https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B00ABKTUWI/ ... YCb19M6S5E

Any good?


Thatll do.

Perhaps a combination lock might be easier than a key?

Oops, I didn’t read the last couple of posts so I went and bought a padlock with a key along with a hasp and staple.

Just a thought, do I need to bring a grinder/knotted wire brush as well?

I have some flapper discs that can take paint off the boards, but I dont have any battery powered tools. Can I ask everyone who has a battery power tool to bring it along, with as many fully charged batteries as possible. Other things that spring to mind are:

1) a better way to attach spinners to the boards (someone may have to take the boards home and use a welder)
2) a better way to store the paint brush so that it doesn't dry out (I will bring a new brush with me). They always seem to dry out even though they are stood in water. Do we need a sealed container?
3) I assume we have lots of carabiners to attach strings to targets (broken or missing on several targets)
4) Check knock-up/down targets used on plinking range. Some don't seem to go over (when I hit them!)

If Gerry brings his little genny then I I'll bring my angle grinder.

1) "Someone". I wonder who that would be? ;)
3) Yes, loads, recently bought, hanging in the container in a jiffy bag.

Just finished the shift I started at 5 yesterday (back in for 3.45 this afternoon) I think that the genny can run 2 grinders, so if somebody has a dual plug extension lead, I'll bring a grinder and wire wheel (if I can find them :?)

AFAIK, only 2 members have welders at home ;) The other thought, would be to thread the stems, then drill through the frames and use nuts & washers on the spinner stems (think that the stems are about 5 or 6 mm diameter?) to hold them in place.

As a thought, can the caribiners have swivels fitted? Just that the strings are getting knotted up when winding up to the targets.

Right, got the genny, petrol, 2 x 4" grinders and one wire wheel in the car (haven't got a second one) but as there'll be a flappy disc there, can always fit that to the second grinder, but will need a 'splitter' to run a second grinder as my extension lead has a single plug.

When it warms up a bit, I'll bring those faceplates and posts back, and weld them up, also put on some footpegs so that they don't get hammered like they have been recently, as we discussed.

You both did a cracking job of it. thumbup
Hopefully the battery is ok. What was the voltage?


Maybe we can try to do the other jobs in the wood and the roofing after shoots?

Nope - wouldn't run two - overload cut-out went straight away :lol: on examining it, it's only a 650W jobbie, still, it kept put-putting along & if needed, it could run all the lights for a winter afternoon - just let me know if it's needed & I can put it in the back of the car
