    @CRAZY CRAB

    With the announcement of interest rates today I'd suggest you move now to somewhere bigger to give you a bit more room.

    Stove pox is clearly far more dangerous than Covid 19, and self isolation will require disconnection of all outside communication. :)

    nothing wrong with Stove pox, naff all else to do, now re-tied, having fun, any way, done a bit of cleaning, on fuel tank, are these cracks any think to worry about, they go all away round, or are they just normal wear and tare, for old fuel tanks, it does not leak,

    Stress cracks in the metal. If it doesn’t leak it might stay that way for a while longer. In a pressure stove it’d be worse news.

    had me Norma 24 chromed, to make it last an other 60 odd yeas, now have to sort the fuel tank out, micro cracks, it leaks abit, as you can see, so was just wondering on best way to repair, was thinking of electro plating it, lots of layers, that way, it will fill in the gaps, i hope, apart from that it works fine, use it most days,
