Turner Charles & Sons (Farmers Friends) LtdHi just a quick question,
Anyone know where I can buy a proper flat tined (not square) 'potato fork' from for bait digging, preferably 'Bulldog' brand in the East Yorks area, as some toe-rag has nicked mine!
Here's 2 photos of the fork ( I put the Black Tape round the shaft )Turner Charles & Sons (Farmers Friends) Ltd

These are good forks mate
I'd buy anything from Bulldog Tools after telling them what I was after.bull dog tools is just up the road from me and they will make you any fork /spade etc to your requirements , my dad had a garden hoe made that they hadnt done for years
Sorry mate but I give my Dad my fork to use on his allottment, dont know if there was a makers name on it I honestly can't remember, why don't you ring the place that sells them Telephone: 01642 453592Hi,
Bought one from B&Q a couple of years or so back, can't remember make, but had a plastic handle and broke within 15 mins. Current one I use looks donkeys years old - was bought from a Market stall that sold old tools and garden stuff. He had quite a few, with Wooden handles - cost me a tenner. Might be worth a look if you have a decent market near by. Some of the old gear is made better than the modern stuff !!!
I have just got mine out of the shed to have a look but I forgot I put tape round the shaft ! so I started to take the tape off but the sticker with the name is well stuck to the tape..sorry :g:To Codbasher 3 and Mike.
That looks a cracking fork. Unforutnalty I'm in Somerset. Do you have any idea of the make of the fork so I can look for it down here?
i bet it aint so good in the heavy stuff ? :g:used a cheapo flat tined one for yonks came with a set or seperate for a tenner
you could bend it without trying but if its for digging worm it was fine and light aswell
i use 2 forks to get them locally taking the top 6in of slime off with a potato fork then a garden fork to chase them through the hard stuffi bet it aint so good in the heavy stuff ? :g:
i used a super heavy duty fork on the isle of white recently, solid metal bulldog, and even that was bending while turning over the blue clay that lay a few inches under the sand, damned hard work but the 12" king rag were worth it !!
