Re: Wulff Arizona restoration

Often thought about the design of the Wulff pull knobs and wondered if the pointed design was intended to deter punters from slamming down the handle and damaging the alloy mech?

Re: BMCo allwins identified

Odd, there are usually holes and a route in the backboard for the losing ball to travel. It appears only to be a (large) route for the winning ball. !PUZZLED!

Re: Information needed

No, an old branch line that was ripped up years ago. The most amusing part of this was that the surname of the lad who did this was 'Shot'. :HaHa:

Slightly off-topic, but did you know that the record for peeing off our local railway station bridge was set at 1.00am and reached 4 sleepers along the track. To my recollection this was back in the late 1960s. :burp:

Yes, we were crazy back in the '60s, there was a lot of redevelopment in our town during that time and we used to play on the demolition sites after school. One incredibly stupid (but exciting) lark was to light a penny banger and wait until it fizze...

Re: The old Exploding Key trick!!

I well remember playing with Swan Vesta matches, one trick we used to do was wrap the match head very tightly in silver foil then hold a flame under it. The match would then explode with a very loud 'BANG' and what a bang it was, sending the foil flying across the room!
