    Having recently swapped a lantern for an Optimus 00 I discovered that it had a faulty NRV. The original tool I made for my lanterns proved too big so I made myself a new one...

    To be honest, it's a bit over the top but it ertainly works!

    Having used it to remove the NRV I discovered that it was competely loose and just needed tightening! Now I have a wonky jet but that's a story for another day!

    Nice piece of work! I guess you have your own workshop?

    I do have a workshop but I don't have a lathe. I use one at the School where I teach in their Technical department. It's a massive Colchester 2000 that can do loads of things but it gets a lot of rough treatment from the pupils.

    Hopefully not throwing chuck keys round the workshop Colin.

    I did that once when I was about 15 but never again - it's a life lesson for sure - never to leave the chuck key in the chuck and turn the lathe on!!!

    What is the width of the slot? Planning on making one so I can get a BAT up and running - it's the last issue :( If I knew the slot width, I could get started - I tried something yesterday, but didn't quite work, and now I *really* have to get the NRV out, as the inlet hole is plugged up too now...
