All your Iron Cross be look like joke!

Recommended Posts

Well,did and done, and I think the kingdom is saved. I carefully tried Owatrol on a few small areas and was very happy with the result.

Owatrol is a number of things... a creeping oil, a rust inhibitor and a Paint/stain aditive to improve the flow of paint.... as such it is good for rust and wood and does not harm paint.

I will get some outside photos done when the weather is better, but I am happy with the result. the nails look to be "saved", the oil has brought the paint colors out really well without interfering with the "look"... i.e. it is all protected and dandy, but in no way restored.

I am a very happy boy!!!

During WW1 in all villages and towns, people could buy iron nails which would be hammered in wooden statues or images of boats, planes, Iron Crosses, historical persons, etc.

Look here for more information:

    • Sounds great other than the Orange & Mango squash only because I prefer cran-pomegranate juice.

    • At work the standard indian tea such as PG tips is referred to as chimp tea. This goes back to the days when we had a Spanish girl working for us whose command of the English language was extremely limited. One lunch she said she was going to the shop could she get anything. I asked if she could get a pack of tea bags. She returned with some disgusting herbal concoction. I tried to explain what was required but without success. I then remembered PG tips had a picture of a chimpanzee on the packe

Many years ago I dont  know about Lapsang until I read James Michener book Centennial and the description of the savour of the Lapasang as a mix of tar and salt & smoked made me proof . It was exact ! and i liked it since then .
