Who’s father had one of these, this is mine ...
Now THAT’s a blowtorch…..
Can remember helping him repaint the house.
This was the tool for stripping the paint off
Use to sneak back down to the garage and firing this baby up for a bit of a play at night after everyone went to bed
From Barry’s dad:
Barry was a bugger of a child……..but he survived beyond his teens!
C’mon!!........they were such cool toys.
No one sneaks back into the garage to play with an electric heat gun
Pump that baby up and listen to the roar of the flame
you don’t realise how close to the truth that is
Having spent some very entertaining social time with you, I just figured it might be a good guess….
Dad had one for heating the soldering iron...
Not one with a cord.
cool looking Monaro in the car park
I learned to solder in high school with one of these….
Dad's Primus 890 white spirit soldering iron. Still use it occasionally.
Unbond brake linings from the shoes and brass rivet new linings onto the shoes;
Melt lead flashings and car batteries to make fishing sinkers in plaster of paris moulds;
Re-solder brass tanks on leaking radiators;
Loosen king pins from beam axles.
Small tank was filled with white spirit, lit with a flint lighter to pre-heat the soldering iron before opening the gas valve.
WHOA ....... wish my dad had one of those babies!!!!
Critical to correct soldering:
Solder rods and Baker's Soldering fluid (until the lid rusted onto the tin).
I still use it when I require a low temperature.
The paymaster clerk would count the money in front of you, place it back into the envelope. You would then sign for it.
Had a set like this and then upgraded when I did tech drawing
In a 4 year apprenticeship I got four 40hr pay packets.
All the others were docked
I'm trying to remember to remember the brand name of the carbonised tear off payslips?
It's almost who remembers $1 and $2 notes
Separate names with a comma.
