So its come to the time of year that the clocks change , and while your changing the clocks , perhaps you might be dragging a chair around the house to reach one of your clocks. Why not test your smoke alarm while you have the chair or ladder out .
All the lads in the shed would like to thank Athy Steel Products Ltd , for their help in donating the steel for the welding course and making the parts for the trailer we refurbished , and all the help they gave us on the projects we are working on. Especially the flue for our wood burner to keep the lads warm in the shed .
If you need steel or a car trailer , please give Ian a call on 059 86 31454 or visit their web site here
