Careful Derk.....it is little things like this wrench set that will cause an obsessive compulsive guy like you to go acquire an airplane.

Rick,
Thanks for the information.
And Rob,
The old Derk would have gone out to find an aircraft and bring it home to go with the wrench but I am cured now. My focus on life right now is to rebuild a new kitchen for the wife!

The markings on the multi-tool suggest it is for use on equipment that uses BA fasteners. What equipment used by the RCAF used BA fasteners?
I know the C5 charging switchboard used with WS19 used that system so it might be fair to assume other pieces of radio kit designed in the UK might use those fasteners.
At risk of sidetracking the thread, is there a list of known Canadian systems that used the BA fastener system?

Grant.

With the huge inventory of British designed aircraft in Canada's wartime RCAF, there were probably a large number of parts using BA style fasteners. Not necessarily exclusive to wireless equipment.

And in a worst case scenario, Derk can always assemble the new kitchen with BA hardware.

You can BS the rest of the MLU Forum, but don't bother trying to BS me!! I know you too well and for too long. How many police lightbars have you acquired now, in order to try and fulfill just one of your many latest obsessions? And where did you have to mount the last one because the garage wall was already full to the top with them?? Don't lie to everyone, I have photos.

I see where this is going so I might as well show everybody the photo and see if I am the only one that thinks the headboard of the bed is fine where it is?

I think that is a perfectly legitimate and stylish place for a light bar. So long as it's not rigged to go off when...you know.

Nice! ...and hence the need for a new shop (more wall space). After the new kitchen, of course.

No doubt there will be a light bar in the new kitchen to indicate "order up", or "birthday boy", or "10000th customer".

Default Hmmmmmmm

Looking at those photo's,maybe I do have a slight obsession on collecting a few items and Wayne called it right, that's why I need a shop.
Rob, I'm glad you don't have a picture of all the vehicles in the yard!
The wife is a patient woman though. I even talked her into working on a lightbar at one time! I'm a lucky man so shouldn't push my luck with a lightbar in the new kitchen!

While this hijack is fresh regarding the placement of one certain light bar, illuminating those lights usually meant for someone to "pull over" not "pull......" You get the picture

Since I am no saint in that department, I'll leave vehicle photos out of this conversation. Then again, the majority of yours are not olive drab.

Default Another good day at the flea market

First visit this year to a favorite flea market in the country coming back from camping this weekend paid off in coming across the rare STEVENS FIRST AID tin that were in the CMP trucks. It was the first item I spotted when I walked into the place. Very happy to find one finally as I have had the canvas pouch for it and now have the tin! I of course found other items of interest for my collection there but the tin was the highlight of the day! Another good find was a Corbin padlock with key for $2.00 and an interesting bike patch kit tin. Not sure of the era the tin is from but interesting.
Regards,Derk

Default Oh yeah;

I also added 3 more lightbars to the collection from the last trip out to our favorite military surplus store a few weeks back. The wife was very happy to see more show up!

Derk.

In the late 1950's, my parents bought me a three speed bicycle from Eatons. The 'house brand name' of the T. Eaton Company line of bicycles was 'Glider' and they were made by Raleigh Cycle of England. Fitted to the back of the saddle by two small leather straps was a tan leather tool kit containing a set of spanners and a patch kit tin bearing that general shape and name. Not sure the colour scheme was the same but I recognize the two instruction blocks on either side of the lid. So those tins were definitely around in the 1950's and probably go back some time before then. Thanks for the memories!

David
