    Excellent work mister KE1HA sir - when i have the money to build a proper farm i'll certainly be checking this method out :)

    Maybe this can be stickied - the spare parts sticky seems to have died a death :(
    Though i guess that could be due to people setting up their own small farms with their spares :)
