Andy if it was'nt the season of goodwill to all men I would be cursing you for getting it so quickly :cry:
well done =D>
and a point to you as well Tom =D>

(I use a spoke dog to pull the spokes into position to allow the tenons on the ends of them to enter the mortices in the wheel rim)

Now please put something else up chaps :mrgreen:

Ooh I reckon this one might run a while, Im guessing the cauldron bit on the end is to hold a molten liquid (glue or pitch :? ) and the section behind with the clamp is to place hot coals in to keep said liquid molten and the long section is a handle to enable pouring :?

In the eternally wet North
making sash weights? or weights of some description?

What I thought was the remains of a hand guard is in fact a hinged semi-circle with a thumbscrew. Releasing this allows the top half of the 'receptacle' to hinge upwards (with, I'm guessing a gap to swing up and over the spout from the molten-lead-holder). Looks to be some raised lettering in the top hinged half which suggests important to stamp something into the cooled lead object.

Your right about the top section being hinged Roger but not for weights.

Last clue, the handle ends up as part of the product :wink:

Yes , you melt the lead (or used head) in the bowl and then tilt it back so the new head forms around the tube shaft.
The shaft has been crimped at the end to stop the head moving and seal the tube :idea:

Cheers
