NOTICE TO ALL MEMBERS FROM THE ADMIN TEAM

The forum has been put into “read only” mode to temporarily stop any further posting. This is needed to ensure that all data can be migrated across to the new forum without interruption. It appears that some of you are still able to post (perhaps because you were logged in at the time the forum was switched to “read only” and have not subsequently logged out). That was not intended to be the case, so please STOP making any further posts.

We are still awaiting advice from the Developer team on when the new forum will go live. When it does, you will no longer see the orange banner message at the top of the page and you will need to log in again. You will also need to renew your password (but you should be able to re-use the same password that you currently have). Passwords cannot be transferred across to the new forum because they are encrypted for your security.

THANK YOU FOR YOUR PATIENCE

Welcome, Guest

Here is a little tool I picked up in the garden a while back that has always made me wonder. I think I have the answer, what do you think it is ?

Hoss the post is 4x4 I have found several of these objects all broken! Ray, yes a garden tool but not used in gardening!
This is an Archaic heavy site if that helps.

sawzall !!!!!!

Chisel ? !
Those guys must have had the patience of a saint. It drives me nuts when my steel chisels are dull and to have to work wood with that?
Of course it probably wasn't, " I'm going to make a dugout this week", it was probably more like, " I'm going to make a dugout over the next 7,8,9 full moons"
