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.

    '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.'

  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.

  5. Postings on Politics, Religion & Controversial Off-Topic Material

    The majority of users do not want to read about these subjects and people have left the forum as a result of it – this is after all an 'Airgun' Forum. It’s all very well to say they don’t have to read it if they don't want to, but as most of us use the ‘New Posts’ button there is no easy way to avoid it.

    All AGF staff members are in favour of people being able to discuss what they want, but we have to draw the line somewhere if it is upsetting other users. We don’t want to read about these topics either.

    IMPORTANT- The discussion of politics and religion is no longer allowed anywhere on the forum (including the Adult section).  The only exception is if it's airgun related - they must be put in the Airgun Related Politics section..

    We will not tolerate bullying or personal attacks, racism or any other offensive 'isms'. we will remove these topics from the forum, we will not give you an area where you can abuse each other. We will not hesitate to ban offenders.

    Neither would I mate, but if I fill that tank from the garage compressor then just top it off occasionally as needed. I’m not going to spray paint for long, the tank itself works ok for ten mins or so, but then I have to go home to refill it!
    This is mainly for gun filling anyway, so I’m not going to overload it.

    I would want to be at least half a mile from that tank when you fill it.

    Well, Lichfield is 217 nautical miles south so you’re safe enough. The Scottish Numpty Party have been trying to separate Scotland from England for long enough, this might help!!:cool:

    Used my New Warrior today to top up my two rifles.
    Am pleased as punch. Took under a minute for each gun, and that’s with me cracking the bleed valve twice during the fill.

    Pump temp stayed at 35 deg both times and dropped to 17 in the time it took to swap the fill probes.
    I’ll probably swap out the original oil now.

    Well boo to the nay sayers. It’s not even about economics but convenience.

    Thanks to all you who went before and inspired me to get one. Yay for the Chinese cheap shooting stuff. It will take pride of place next to my £18 chrono.

    I find it interesting as to how the calculations of purchase are often distorted by the astonishing cheapness of certain Chinese items.

    I was sharpening a chainsaw chain when a friend said "Oh, I just throw them away and buy a new one". I spent the next ten minutes trying to convince him to throw his blunt chains in my direction, but I understand the point he was making. If I buy a Chinese compressor and one day damage it, it's cheaper to buy a new one and another new one after that; I'll still then be better off than buying an 800 GBP fancy compressor in the first place.

    Thing is one needs to learn to sharpen a saw chain. I’ve two and am trying. If I was lazy can pay about a tenner to have it done.
    The Chinese pumps can be maintained with cheap parts so even better.

    Yes, and that was his point, he pays 8 GBP for a chain, so it's cheaper to buy one than pay to have it sharpened, just like you said with cheap parts for a Chinese compressor. I am not sure that it's a good thing, but my life has been changed for the better by recognising that (sometimes) it's not a false economy to buy cheap stuff and chuck it or repair it with Chinese pot-metal parts when it's necessary.

    I just can't force myself to do the same with airguns, though!

    They really are quite easy to sharpen if you buy NEW files of the correct size.

    I used to sharpen my chainsaw chains or touch them up in the field with files, but I bought an electric chainsaw sharpener and it is so quick to do and with a light touch have sharp chains, I have two chains so can change them in the field if I need to or just touch up with the file, when I get home I put the sharp chain on and sharpen the used one.

    Regards

    Can only find a 110v or 12v one. So unless you have a site transformer or are prepared to flatten your car battery they are not a lot of use.

    Also designed for gun filling only.

    New Warrior now set up with 2 oil/water filters, as well as the original one; topped my bottle up to 300bar again today and dry as a bone at the last filter to the bottle :thumb:
