Hi Martin
Seeing how things appear slack, a stove matter. Got what appears to be a old primus syle stove which has a more industrial appearance, qite heavy. Cast top ring supported by 3 iron rods. Could it be a glue pot heater? Any info around on this sort of thing? I suppose I should really go an excavate and take a pic..

Martin,
just got in from the shed, after mostly stripping the 3/1 wreck for bits for the 10/2. The blue spanner has proved most useful tonight. I've put more effort into the destruction of the 3/1 then I have into the rebuild of the 10/2 so far!
I was hoping that you would entertain me with tales of disc spinning on the lathe, but it's not to be. I have an exciting weekend ahead, mucking out the sheds ready for lambing. Fork, anyone?
Regards, Arthur G

A new memory might even be better! :-) Dug it up and dusted it off... I must admit it's been at least 10 years since I laid eyes on it. A bit of my description fits. :-)
It's even got a maker's plate: The Portable Furnance & Patents Co. Ld. Carrington. Nottingham Marked Size No. 2

The dig was quite productive as I found quite a few things that had been deleted from memory..:-) Mainly mc engine bits. Squariel, Triumph and Vinnie stuff. The Vinnie stuff was real surprise, as I thought I sold all that 20 odd years ago. I'll have to track down the Qantas pilot again..

From my recollections of school, "proper" glue was heated over a water bath: anything else would, I think, be to fierce.

Tom,
From your photographs its something that I have never seen before and in relation to camping stoves I think it would not so much boil water as melt the kettle :-))
I would agree with Roland as being for heating something like tar, definitely construction use.

Misty here in Northants, but we are only 15 miles from you as the crow flies so wouldn't expect different :-))
Ploughing through company website updates this morning, drilling holes in the field later on if I can get the post-hole borer to run.

Misty just north of Bristol as well.
Got the caravan out from winter storage yesterday so that needs a wash and polish. Then some time in the garage :-))

Lovely bright sunny day up on the North Pennines. Makes up for yesterday when the hill fog was about with a vegance (visibilty down to 50m or less) and the nasty, 'orrible, fine rain that soaks you through without you realising it's actually raining.
