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.

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.

    I was doing some DIY (after being nagged to death), and had a bit of polyfilla left over - I then had a brainwave and poured it into cake cases to make some of those exploding chalk targets :)



    This is the result of shot 1.....

    Avoid any future DIY totally. I make such a crap job of it, I never get asked again.

    Like macdoog said;
    The problem was that the whole mix was polyfilla (the modelling stuff would be better and probably cheaper too) which bonds each molecule to each other. You need to weaken the mix with a nuetral agent like flour and experiment until you find a proportion that just about holds the mix together when set. I would start with a 50/50 one and take it from there.
    Hope that helps.......

    Exactly my philosophy. I always say "if you don't want to do a job twice, do it really badly the first time" for me this includes washing up, DIY, hoovering, washing the car etc etc lol

    Why the hell did not I remember that years ago I them too......and I also used Polo mints at 10m to improve my skills. They work a bit like the Bell Target system but with no 'clang'.
    :rolleyes: Best of all you could pick up the bits and eat them!

    I haven't seen any mints at aldi or lidl in ages. I used to shoot them myself but they just don't seem to stock them any more in my area.
