Never turn down

Postby scrounger » Sun Jan 22, 2017 10:28 pm

There are lots of free items I never say no to. But one of my favourites would have to be milk crates. Million and one uses

What is your favourite thing you never say no to?

Question for the people using pallets/skids. Do you only use heat treated skids or would you use ones fumigated with methyl bromide?

A little background.

The type of skid determines what I use if for.. on the farm, there are so many ways to use skids, I don't think I have ever burnt one yet.. fences, instant garden climbers, pens, ways to stack things off the ground and more

Having said that, if I was going to consider it for heating or burning, I would be looking harder at the codes.
