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.

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

    I really like the case, it looks the perfect solution to the problem I have had in the past when my pellet tins have been shaken such that the pellets have deformed and cause flyers.

    How was the foam cut so neatly round and where is the foam from please?

    actually it isnt lol , i researched google and a hot wire seemed the only way and i didnt want to mess about like that so i used a serrated knife but made sure to cut them well undersize to the actual tin so when there squeezed in the hole stretches nice and tightly round the tin giving the look of being perfectly round even though there not lol , this actually helps keep them from moving about even more so a good thing i suppose :up:

    auction starts at £125 inc pellets :laff:


    another good feature is that behind the foam in the lid are 2 strip of elastic for holding small make up brushes and pens but could be used for allen keys and small tools or cleaning kits ect

    Does the upper shelf of foam have plywood under it to prevent the tins falling through when lifted out?

    no , i had planned to use some cardboard and i probably will just to be sure but i can lift out the top shelf and all the tins stay in there lol , its due to them being tightly seated and the grip of this furniture foam

    Furniture foam, I see.

    Do you think it would cut cleanly with a hole saw in a cordless drill? I have a set of hole saws that goes up to about 4" diameter.

    nope , a few tried it on google and it just bit down and ripped the foam to pieces, a hot knife or hot wire is the only clean way apparently

    mark it out, then use a scalpel. if the cut 'pulls', then heat up the blade

    Thank you Stevemandm.

    What is the uncompressed thickness of the foam you can cut with a scalpel?

    Apparently even scalpels cut poorly but heated should do the trick :up:

    Any really as you would cut to the depth of the blade then hold the cut open to cut deeper
