Leaf Peeping: Beautiful Autumn Colours

This Autumn, I have been taking trips out of the city to some beautiful rural places in Manchester, and the colour-show of leaves has been amazing. I sometimes dread autumn, as it connotes the transition into winter, but I must admit that when it is actually here, I become in complete awe of the stunning colours that it displays. So, I have included some of my favourite pictures that I have taken this season while on my walks. It would be great to see some of yours, too! :)

Stihl FS 460 C Incorrect Thread - Help!

Made a silly mistake on the guard thread of my FS 460. Cross threaded and re-tapped. Tapped it at M6 - It should have been M5. Can anyone suggest how I could reduce it back to M5 - If this is in fact possible. If it is not possible, I will have to buy a complete new gearbox at about £180!!!!! An expensive mistake. Thanks.

"An open association like LJN is just a remarkable place. What you pay per year for what you get out of it is astonishing, and speaking personally, LJN has helped guide me from a new start up business into 5 years of profitable trading and I don't think I could have done that without access to the forum and the great contributors to it."
