Digging buckets
« on: June 15, 2020, 09:30:44 am »
DB Buckets to the stars - are you on here?  Are you still in business?

We're desperate for a couple of drag/haul buckets.  The ones with the corner cut out so you can drag horizontally and then haul vertically with the same bucket.

Cheers
Tim

Brill.  You are indeed the bucket maker to the stars  ;) ;D  Hopefully brewing will return to normal soon.

I don't know how we ever managed before DB.  Cheers

Warning ,do not leave the white buckets in full sun light for a long time ,they do deteriorate .
I do not think this is likely but just something to bear in mind .I thought they were OK but one
I have had in the garden for two years in full sun snapped  a piece out when I picked it up
by the edge !Blue ones no problem .

As a matter of interest a similar thing happens when cable ties are placed close to low energy light bulbs; the white ones go brittle and fail; the black ones don't seem to do. (I hope that's not too off topic but I change light bulbs for a living, so I tend to notice such things.)

Best use Black then if you do that will not happen . Those bulbs must give out UV ,this penetrates semi translucence
Poly ethylene plastic .It breaks the Polymer chains into short lengths which then makes them break as easily
as biscuit .

Caver and Brewer here with an excess of 25L chemical containers that may be suited to your needs. Let me know how many you want and where you want them and I can make it happen - Dave I can drop somewhere discreet at the Dump if you'd like to modify them yourself? I will clean them out of nasty caustic/peracetic acid and sanitise for Covid as well.

Hi all, I have a dig in need of a bucket, vertical shaft so square/rectangular plastic drum would be great if anyone has one that they can spare.

I'm not far from the Dales and happy to nip over to the dump or any of the the other caving club huts if that's convenient?

Bit of a nuisance  but necessary.
