1. The Forum Rules have undergone some minor changes and updates.  Please take the time to read them; it will only take a couple of minutes of your time. By doing so, you lessen the chance of incurring the wrath of the moderation team or making yourself look foolish to other members.

    90% of users posting adverts in the Sales forums need to be reminded to read the rules as their posts are wrong.  This is unnecessarily time-consuming and will no longer happen - if your advert doesn't follow the Sales Rules it will be deleted and you'll have to start all over again.

    To close this box once you've read it (and the Rules), click on the X in the top right-hand corner.

    Thank you.

  2. A reminder of one of the Forum Rules:

    'Behaviour

    Do not make inappropriate or offensive posts - including threats, harassment, swearing, prejudice, defamation, deliberate insults or name-calling, other negative remarks about this forum, its moderators and administrators or your fellow members. Even if this is just your own personal opinion, RESPECT YOUR FELLOW MEMBERS.'

    There have been changes made to our censoring software in an attempt to help with this growing problem.

  3. Dear members,

    Our membership (like our country) consists of people from all walks of life; different in far more ways than can be listed here and each with a different view based on their experience of life - regardless of their colour, religion or cultural heritage. Every single person in the UK has been born of mixed race – we are a multi-coloured and multi-cultural country.

    As many of you are aware there are a handful of individuals amongst this membership that persist in making provocative, inflammatory, racist and otherwise offensive comments. This has been happening across the forum to a certain degree but is most especially prevalent in the Adult section.

    The moderation team has tried to stay on top of this, however unfortunately because of the ‘offensive’ nature of much of its content we don’t monitor the Adult section quite as much as perhaps we should. As a result much of this behaviour has gone unnoticed unless it has been reported to us. While the team always intended to take a "light touch" approach to the Adult section it would seem that some people aren’t quite adult enough to be left unmonitored after all.

    This behaviour is, and always has been against Forum Rules as well as the specific stipulations of the Adults forum and it will no longer be tolerated. We feel it's time to draw a line in the sand and as such from this point onward offenders will receive an immediate and permanent ban from the forum.

    In order for us to achieve our goal of restoring the forum to the friendly and tolerant place it once was, we ask that ALL members be mindful of the content they post and help us to stop unacceptable behaviour by using the 'Report' tool at the bottom of any offending post - the results of which can be seen only by Admin/Moderators.

    You should all receive a copy of this message by PM. 

    To close this message box, click on the 'X' in the top-right-hand corner.

    anyone read this latest edition ? its got an interesting article on XTX - our forum's very own air rifle tuning expert !
    its great to see someone get international recognition when they deserve it, and darrin deserves it, as his work is second to none.
    darrin, if you're reading this mate, congratulations ....... altho in the interests of health and safety, you should really be wearing safety specs when operating that lathe ! ;)

    Only if he were an employee......as an owner operator he is able to do as he likes! Of course, if a swarf flies up and hits him in the eye and he can't work, he doesn't have the benefit of sick pay to fall back on. It is a case of weighing up the risks - I don't wear goggles / visor when using the chain saw, or ear defenders, or a helmet - I do have ballistic trousers though and steelies. This H&S thing, some reverse psychology is good for safety. If you know something is dangerous, you take more care to prevent an accident - instead of airbags and seat belts, which reduce injury after stuid driving decisions....replace them with a 10" steel spike sticking out of the steering wheel. I bet people would drive more carefully!

    i know what you mean mate, i was just referring to the wearing of safety specs on a personal level for protection, and not a legal issue. my thoughts are that you only have one pair of eyes, so you might as well protect them. as an apprentice trained turner, i have seen many eye related injuries, which could have been avoided if safety specs were worn.
    myself or matty, wont undertake many of the workshop tasks without protective eyewear, its not a legal requirement, just good practice, i believe
