This build type was very much inspired by the original image posed by Astroboy in reply #23 (Feb 25 2014) on this topic.
 


A furphy, is Australian slang for a rumour, or an erroneous or improbable story.  You would never get anything but the plain honest dinky-di truth here... I promise!!!!  Yup, hand on my heart, promise, true blue, uh-huh true dinks, dead set!!

Quite amazing Bob.

For those still interested in some history here is a link on their origins "perhaps"

http://www.diamantina.qld.gov.au/documents/800087/55295096-da5d-4d21-92c4-6f4f82...

The image below for the relevant page in the event that link somehow gets removed or changed.

If you are ever in Bedourie, Bill Thompson told me that the local tourist people have had about 1000 little six inch Bedourie camp ovens made in China out of zincalume and are selling them as souvenirs.  Due to material they are very clearly marked not to be used as a cooking device.

They would be a great project to make at sheet metal trade school.

I made similar items during my apprenticeship. Don't see tinsmans rivets used much these days.

Was that a love job, or paid for? A few hours work in that.

This one was love job done for me by a close friend. 

I note you comment on tinsmans rivets with a wry smile.  They are indeed difficult to find these days, and Bec has a good supply of them now..
