Hi, Having been away now for a couple of weeks, I have caught up with my drawings of what I might want to make again. While SWMBO was buying postcards in a souvenir shop so I went browsing. Among the usual tourist things there were some cast iron models, on a previous break I had bought a model of a treadle grindstone to which I added a steam engine. So I was quite interested to see what other models were available; there were models of telephones, sewing machine (might be able to do something with that), kitchen range, scales, a myriad of bells for all occasions and a stove. The stove had possibilities and at 16 euros not that expensive so worthy of some thought. I would go away and think about it. There was another stove not in the photograph which I later noticed which was missing its chimney and grill. What ever I thought could be made from it it was likely that the chimney and grill would not be used. So I ask how much they wanted for it and after a bit of negotiation we settled on 10 euros. The purchase means that I now will have to do something with it if only to placate SWMBO who said "What did you want and go and buy that for?" The following photographs are of my purchase along with a sketch with approximate dimensions; being a casting it isn't exactly round. I have some vague ideas but any suggestions might be helpful. It will be a further few weeks before I can get to the shed so plenty of time to cogitate. Regards Tony.
