This is the latest advert to appear on GN.
Can anyone tell me what a spitter is and why I might need to re-wind one?confusedgrin

Haven't a clue !
Have you tried clicking where it says learn more.
It can't be done from your post.

The adverts I get on here are eclectic, to say the least. ONE time a posh shoe company was mentioned in a forum so I looked it up. THREE months of adverts for shoes that cost more than my house. Now I'm working in Switzerland, I get Swiss Engineering ads. I can't even afford a car here!

Better than Facebook though. On there, I get a mixture of semi-pornographic lingerie and Saga adverts. I wish they'd pigeonhole me into ONE category. It's confusing!

A slitter rewinder is a machine tool for unwinding rolls of material and slitting the original roll into different widths. Quite why it appears on GN is a mystery or a scam. Perhaps we have reached the point where old folks are buying wide rolls of paper and making their own toilet rolls to just the right width! 😳

I often wonder why we have an advert for “tires from Walmart”. Who in the UK is going to buy their tyres from the USA. hmm

What a strange advert for Gransnet.

Flemish kitchen design this week, probably due to the big Homes/DIY show Battibow being on in Brussels this week.
I have had a lot of calls offering me free tickets with Champagne too, my DBF and I once had a great afternoon at the car show.
