    It's manly to own and operate a chainsaw. Just sayin'

    Is it also manly to have only 1 arm? As I'd imagine my limbs are in more danger than the tree with me in charge of a chainsaw.

    Losing a limb and surviving is definitely manly, but at the same time there is physically less of you, so therefore less man. So I reckon they cancel each other out.

    @BreadBinLidHero What about if you replace the lost limb with a chainsaw-arm?

    Use the severed appendage in the completed deck design. Mount it on a post upright, hand gripped to receive a tiki torch or other novelty light fitting.

    All limbs intact am afraid - though I haven't seen the dog for a bit now I think about it

    Changed the oil in the shock absorbers of my 1979 Ford Bronco.

    That sounds pretty manly, doesn't it. The scale is 1/10, mind.

    Cut them pulled drywall off two interior walls. Cut the wires to electrical outlets. Cut framing with a saw saw and pushed the whole lot down after some sweaty prybar action.

    Well I fucked up the bathroom sealant as its cracked again. I've failed again. I went through all the tutorials of ensuring it was dry.. didn't use the shower for 24 hours.

    You did remove the old stuff and fill the bath with water and left that in? I ask as I did ours a few months ago after the sealent strips started to come away exposing some rather large holes between the bath and tiles.

    Edit: wait it's a shower unit? If so I've no advise other than to get some weight into the base and try again.

    Nope! haha. I'll do that. Think I also used the wrong sealant.. says water based and I needed silicon. I don't know what I'm doing.

    Yeah, you need silicone sealant for a bathroom. What did you use, decorators caulk?

    Just says bathroom and kitchen water based sealant. I assumed it was silicone stupidly.. just thought fuck it looks like the right product from the picture on it.

    I used some stuff from B&M of all places. Stanley multi purpose silicone sealent in white. It worked well, usually I'd have gone to Screwfix and got the no nonsense stuff they sell.

    I improvised a soldering iron for an electrical repair job, when I don't own a soldering iron.

    I mowed the lawn for the first time this year today and after much swearing have decided to bite the bullet and buy a battery-powered mower. I'd also get a strimmer and leaf blower at some point, so would make sense to buy into a compatible brand for all three... any suggestions?

    I wouldnt trust a battery mower to have the requisite torque. Go petrol if you want cordless

    Gardener's World do decent reviews (though have funny ideas about what is "cheap"), so as the mower would be the most expensive I'd start here:
