    Buildings and contents insurance

    It's that time of year again. The renewal is silly priced. Does anyone have any recommendations on who to use. Main stumbling blocks are that I have tools in the garage(part of the house not a separate building) that mount up in cost quite quickly. This means that some insurers class wont cover...

    Couple of small meths stoves (Pic Heavy)

    I spotted the Monkey Boy stove on here a while ago (can't seem to find it now) and thought that I needed to have a go at that as it would be perfect for my brew kit. I had some carbon felt from Minibull so I thought that I'd give it a go. I also needed a tiny stove for my camping espresso...

    Big campfire kettle

    I'm thinking about getting a BIG kettle to either hand from a tripod (Cheers Kev) or sit on my folding grill. When I say big it needs to be 2.5 litres+ as it will be supplying hot water for probably 20 or so people. I'm thinking of the old fashioned type with a big hoop handle on top and a...

    Stove help required

    I'm looking for a petrol/pannel wipe stove that isn't stupidly noisy. I have an MSR Dragonfly which gives good heat and great control but sounds like you are sitting in the after burner on a jet fighter.
