1. Hi. We moved systems, and because it was impossible to achieve feature parity between the systems, we opted to archive the old B&S threads but allow users to read them so that they can put them into our new B&S system.

    There is a support thread if you have any issues.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    The LP hopsack is not suitable for pants and typically 1.5 yards is enough for a pair of pants.

    You'd be surprised. The price of the pants is amazing when weighed against the immense value of them

    Sad I missed out on that H&S, should have moved faster.

    Anything that would make a good throw blanket?
