    You don't need a timing machine, merely a bit of patience. Spend the money on the best quality screwdrivers and case opening kit - although nine times out of ten a horb ball will do the job! ...

    I’d say that’s definitely for mucking out anything that uses straw or hay for bedding. Used like a rake to gather it up and a fork to carry it. I still remember the almost chalk like scraping noise...
