    Anything over about 47 C and I can only do an hour or two in the shed before I need a break, or
    at least keep wetting my shirt and standing in front of the fan. When it gets over 50 C in the

    Oh well, it was good practice... if you get the time, especially for smaller sizes like I.C.

    most applica...
