Marv,

They really do give an engine an 'authentic' look.

I will have to get onto PM to see if they accept PayPal and get a load shipped over.

Millionaire - phooey!!.

But in another way, I am the richest man in the world, good friends and aquaintances are worth their weight in gold.

John

Kewl! And I like the terminology; it kind of fits.

While I was thinking more of round flanges, these look lovely and certainly are doable. One thing I was struck by (again) was your explanation of how it's done. I don't know if you have "instructor" in your credentials but if not, you should. Everything was easy to follow without a whole bunch of techie jargon and was enjoyable to read. Further, it's typical of how you explain things, more "over a cuppa" rather than classroom which is fantastic for newbies.

Once again, marvelously done

Best regards,

Kludge

John,

If they don't accept Paypal, let me know and I'll order what you want. Maybe we can do some sort of exchange - pipe fittings + beer coupons or ? for some MTP or ME taps.

Heh, heh, heh ... if I could get close enough but it's on a completely different island. Besides, dealing with Pele can be hazardous on a good day.

But the idea of using pumice as a wick sounds like a cool way to get an evenly distributed fire under things that need to be made hot. hmmm ...

BEst regards,

They probably do since they do eBay, but they also say they have a UK dealer which may be a gooder thing for you.

"A man's worth isn't measured by the gold he has but by the friends he keeps." I can't remember who said that the people here definitely make anyone wealthy beyond imagination.

Best regards,

Kludge,

Thanks for the info.

BTW, I don't class myself as an expert in anything, just a layman with a bit of experience. So if I use layman's language, it gets the info over so that almost anyone can understand.


Marv,

MTP taps in this country require a second mortgage to purchase them, but ME are very reasonable.

I will see how I get on, and I just might take you up on your very kind offer.

John

I had the idea (obviously wrong) that with all the model engineering going on in the scepter'd Isle, they'd be lying around on the ground for the picking up.

John Stevenson is always remarking that things over there cost the same as over here, except the pound is worth two dollars! I guess he's right.
