+1. Do we know if we are getting a metal detector for pallet wood please.

Thanks for putting this together Mike

Yeah we will probably get the Zircon, but adding it to this list pushes the total into a new category of purchase request requiring more approvals. I’ll do another similar sized one (<£150) soon to include the detector plus other items.

+1 from me - exciting list of tools there Mike. Thanks for putting it together.


Great list of items there Mike, a few that need renewing and some I’ve not seen here yet.
Thanks for putting this forward =)
