    Gday,

    a mate just let me know that his workplace has two piles of pallets to get rid of. Pick up only I think, and I haven't seen them myself.

    PM for details.

    Cheers.

    I presume big nath was hoping for pellets (and presumably hop pellets if the first presumption was correct).

    Did you think I accidentally spelled 'massages with complimentary happy endings' as 'pallets'? :lol:

    A little off topic here, but if you are using pallets for anything else than the inteded purpose please be very carefull with how you deal with them. Pallets are treated with a number of things to ensure long life, and bug resistance (ie termites). These include CCA (Chromated copper arsenate), and in the older ones, pretty heavy going amounts of arsenic [arsenite (trivalent arsenic)].

    Only cut them with a breather, and with a shop vac on the waste out. Or if not, outside with a mask.
