Some old cool tools . still use them

This is a spanish scale.  measures accurately 5 to 100kgs.  We used it on the farm, and it agreed with the modern scales.

Not sure how old they are but certainly the one on right was at least my grandfathers.
 Yankee drill.  for some jobs very handy.

More wood fired oven pictures

 Nephew Richard took over as roast meat chef

chicken and sweet potatoes.  Later we put coals under the rack and let chicken dry out a bit.  grease gets burnt up.

I made the fire a bit too hot, but after 30 minutes it was nice 250C just inside

Bamboo in wood frames

I took this to show the renters.  it was not clamped at the time.  came out very nice
