    Old Tools are Fantastic!

    I bought another Primus the other day, made a new filler cap washer for it and fired it up and made a brew. It was made in 1937. I was wondering then how many things that if I bought it today would be working in 80 odd years

    Alternative uses for Old Jerry Cans.

    I have a black plastic water Jerry that has been made into a storage can for charcoal for my camping bbq. It has been cut off about 5" or so (from memory as it's packed away ) from the top and an aluminium collar has been put inside so the top ' lid' slots down over it. At first glance it...

    I too have massive email font. Two letters to each line. Also have to log in each time I visit the site, which is a bit wearing. Would not accept my password so had to reset it. Fed up with this.
