  1. The only place near to us that does a blue strap at 24mm is Roy, here......it's not dark blue, but maybe what you're after......would still be better on the original steel, though....(just MHO, you realize) Hope this helps with the search a bit....perhaps one of the other colours might work?.....white?....or dare I even say it, yellow? At only £6.95 a pop....it's got to be worth a try?.............
  2. Look....it's very simple....The 'Spork ' has to have its original custom bracelet or it's not a 'Spork' anymore..... :assassin:
  3. Roy is a top bloke. and should always be your first port of call if you have a problem....especially as you're using this forum for free (unless you've donated!...see the top RH corner of the screen on the home page...)
  4. For anyone else who cant see Davey's new avatar, just refresh your browser by pressing F5....
  5. Ha ha....that's a massive cockle shell....are you sure it's not a scallop shell?
  6. No...you enjoy it Dave...but Bejesus, is that what they're fetching now? That's almost better than Rolex appreciation....
  7. What are you thinking of, man!!!!! get it back on the steel immediately..... :butcher:
  8. Lovely....and intrigued by the lapel pin...do tell.....
  9. WOW....that's great Dave....it didn't show up the first time I looked....I just saw your old one of you with your goggles pushed up....(marginally better than the incognito one before)....looks clean and bright...loving the red against the black and white....your own design, obviously? :thumbup: :thumbup: :thumbup: Fab!
  10. I knew I should have held on to that one....... :sadwalk:
  11. I've been into knot tying and macrame for years... here's a few of my efforts from years ago .....and some good books on the subject. I particularly like working the sennits, and stopper knots...such as the wall knot and the Manrope knot... A selection of key fobs....from L to R...No. 1 has a couple of simple Turks head knots to provide grip... 2 and 3 are simple macrame, 4 and 5 are 4 chain sennits with a wall knot in the middle and a Manrope knot at the ends. ...and here's an easy way to cover any item with a circular cross section....in this case, a long reach pole to help the 710 rea
  12. That vid is one of the funniest I've seen for ages.....
  13. Yeah...I thought that at first Mac, but I think he's doing the old 'spiv' nose tap and wink, rather than 'picking a winner' :pmsl: .......anyway...this'll be the new pic for a while...I quite like the 'retro' look of it.....a bit like 'Services' really! :D Perhaps he inspired Ralph Wiggum. Later, William
  14. Thanks for the vote of confidence, Davey....looking forward to seeing what you go for! :thumbup:
  15. Used to love 'Oor Wullie' and 'The Broons'....had several albums years ago...all gone now........... :sadwalk:

  17. That bluey/green one looks superb...I just don't have a watch it could go on......
  18. As I'm approaching the 5K mark, I thought it time for a chance of avatar. Some of you might remember my first one which was a Kingfisher... ...for the last couple of years, it has been an iconic pic of Roger the Dodger from the Beano... ...I have now changed it for an even older version....the first time RtD appeared in the Beano in 1953... See here for more details...hope you like the new version!.
  19. I think Brendan (You Can't Have Too Many Watches) is doing it.....
  20. I'll refer you to this thread...which is how I am ATM... :sadwalk:
  21. I won't be drinking this tonight....it'll be ready by Christmas....this years supply of Sloe gin. Picked the sloes yesterday and froze them overnight to split them (saves pricking them all)...divided between two 1.5l jars, added the obligatory chopped almond to each jar, and filled each one with a bottle and a bit of Gordons (£11 @ Morrisons ATM). Will add sugar to taste about a month from completion. By next weekend these jars will be a deep ruby red. All I've got to do now is wait......and wait.....and wait :D
