    "Yes it is!"
    And so forth. A teeny bit tiresome and pedantic. And Yes you are right, horses for courses. There was more I wanted to note dfown that I thought of yesterday but............That was yesterday and I am droning on, so.........

    Anyone else with ideas?

    That thread was a mess, but in my defense the link to the info about making a bag bellows was in the very first post of that thread. The rest of the thread is strictly for volunteers.

    Re: Bellows Material

    Hi Again,

    Where shall I start. Well, looks like I didn't send my last post (again, Ooops), so LabRat I know the materials are going to cost me, but it is the labour (note spelling, the correct way! Ha ha.) cost where the saving is made and $100 is still a lot of money for me.

    Then Fr. Mark, so much to say and quite right.

    Now Jody S. Yes very inexpensive route.

    If fact everybody is right I don't think I disagree with anything, but the main reason for making bellows? Some of you may have missed the point.

    Doing it yourself is very satisfying.
    Cost saving.
    But the main reason, to have a go!

    To have a go. Yes I might fail but I can try again (and watch a few more vids online), to have a go, though. Man is a great explorer and adventurer, we gain knowledge doing these "silly" things.

    Have fun.

    Bye for now.

    Won't something shiny inside just introduce possibly unwanted reflections? (more food for thought to "reflect" upon as you indulge in those cakes!). Am curious...just what is a pontefract cake?

    I've given shiny stuff on the inside more thought. Light would be scattered everywhere but where it was needed, the film plane. You don't want anything interfering with the rays of light travelling towards it, the film plane that is.

    Pontefract cakes are liquorice sweets, Wikipedia has a decent article for a change.
