  4. i just pulled out the Valves on my 2cwt Massey clearspace ,and reading John N's comment about the the missing ring on the 4th portion of benprothero,s valve on his 2cwt, mine is the same ,no band in the middle,and it doesnt look like its been repaired .On a dfferent subject,all portions on my Valve assembly except "B"and "C" are spinning,shouldnt they be rotating or spinning as well?
  5. a spray of Australian Bloodwood, a Eucalyptus tree, which has beautyful red flowers would look very nice as well.
  6. Hi Fire in the forge where are you? The endevour foundation in Bowen bags coke and sells it in 20 kg bags, they have different sizes ,10-20 mm , what is refered to as nut coke. as well as larger sizes. they ship it to an endevour store near you lets say Cairns or Mareeba and the freight is not expensive as they have their own trucks. try them out. Cheers Hans
  7. had a springhammer now for 20 years and used it a fair bit too, also got a bar stool,it may be not as tough looking sitting down on a hammer but its simple , try it out.

  14. what would be wrong with a gasforge turned low , i can turn mine right down , and to see if aluminium is at forge temperature ,take a piece of pinewood and scrape it like you would write with chalk and if it leaves a charcoal like mark its ready to forge, cheers HJP
