    Made a double sided flood light that clamps in to a U channel. One side has a yellow light and the other end the normal bright white light. It folds in half so that it can be stored in trailer.

    More info on the cooker cushion mentioned above:

    Sometimes you need to keep things hot or [U]cook[U] with minimal use of power or gas - we have a practical solution for that too.
    Inspired by the original box lined with hay (dry grass) as insulation used by the early South African Voortrekkers in their ox wagons as they journeyed across the country off road (there were no roads at the time!)
    The modern equivalent uses polystyrene beads as insulation.
    These are home made and have been “in production” for some 40 years now as a home based micro enterprise by Erica (my spouse) has also become known as “Erica’s Microwave” to some.

    The “Haybox” / Dual purpose Cooker and keep Cool Cushion

    Significant savings on power gas or electricity as applicable.
    Instructions on use with product or by request.

    PM me for more info. if interested.

    That looks great, just a pity you're so far away! And that pumpkin in the photo cut open like a pot with the seed removed and the cavity filled with some nice mince, onions and potato would be just the kind of dish for it, right!?

    Wow, that is some story!
    But I think, if I did get one, I'd like to support Peter's wife, if possible.

    Dankie,
    Nee, ongelukkig is hier blykbaar niemand nie. Ek het dit direk van Special Industrial Supplies (http://www.liftlash.co.za/) gekry, en hulle het vir my 'n goeie afslag gegee wat die koerierkoste uitgekanselleer het.
