That is the origin of AC, but it was big blocks of ice back then, and they had to be delivered.

Evening everyone, not been on for a couple of days because I havn't been around much. Was out to a Birthday party on Friday evening then loads of shopping and painting doors for when the new carpet comes on Wednesday. Got loads more to do then I can cut my old shed up and order my new one, then I can at last start on my Model Railway.

If you had thought this through I could have provided 18v power tools that will destroy anything, and a destructive assistant to assist.
18v DeWalt... Circular saw, Jig saw and Reciprocating saw with destruction blade.
We can turn anything into bin bag waste.

Thanks Volty but we did it more by bloodymindedness than anything else. Got a couple of Gorrillas with a couple of cage wagons to shift the rubbish, the beauty of these guys (giggle did I say Beauty) is that 18 stone of muscle (each) built of lager, fish and chips and curries is that they load every last splinter of it. Actually they make the average Docker look like nurserymaids.

Hi Lyn, no sorry not since the last time they were on. I would email them but I don't like putting pressure on people.
