Finewoodworking Magazine in the late '70s published an article by someone who was tapping live trees and attaching buckets of dye to colour the living wood...sort of reverse 'maple syrup collection'

Crumbs Mark...your place needs a paint more than mine and mine hasn't had one since 1974 !
(not too worried as it is a very early Lockwood with Aluminium sheathing and while the paint is a little chalky it is still all adhered :) )
If you're having such fun building that pizza oven I'm sure that we could all prolong your enjoyment..:D I have a space marked out whenever you're feeling glum and need some fun....:lol::p:p:lol:

best,
bob.

Give that man a medal.:)
Not only was he working on the information available to him but was acting in your best interests by not leaving you a wet parcel !!

Our mailperson would have done the same but for the good relationship we have formed by being appreciative of their desire to do well.

We regularly leave home-preserves and thank-you tipples in our rural box. We leave our updated contact numbers and have arrived at a 'horn-toot code' to advise when a parcel is left.

We treat our mailperson as a decent human and valued community member. They reciprocate by going the extra distance to ensure our parcels are delivered in a timely manner and when raining they walk to our designated safe spot on the porch and leave our parcels.

As we have now both shared phone numbers we can co-ordinate deliveries where the item may be of high value or need special care.
This smooths and speeds their day and makes us both feel we have a working relationship rather than an antagonistic don't care anonymous clash.

Cheers,
Bob

An Olympus E-420/14-42mm ED for $7.00 (US equivalent) Clean, no dust/fungus and minimal signs of use.
Shutter count 8360. https://olegkikin.com/shutterlife/oly_e420.htm
https://www.apotelyt.com/photo-camera/olympus-ft-shutter-count

Shop could not test as there was no charger included so selling as-is. Challenge accepted !

Despite having a box-full of thrift shop chargers (more than 25 :D) none would accept the E-420 battery.

Although...I do have a weird charger that charges anything !! ;-)
https://www.electronicworld.co.nz/shop/power-charger-adaptors/camera-charger...1000380_3.html
https://www.harveynorman.co.nz/cameras/camera-accessories/hahnel-unipal-plus...l-charger.html

It needs some magic-foo set-up but will do most battery types and both 3.7v and 7.4 Li-ion. My go-to rescue when I buy cameras without chargers.:)

Found a spare 1GB XD card and a 2GB CF-Flash (E-420 uses either/both) and once charged it performs as expected.

Ordered the custom USB cable and it arrives tomorrow so I will update camera and lens Firmware.

Light and small... just right for smaller-handed family members :D
Found an adapter to convert Pentax lenses to use with it....(Yes...There is a Pentax connection to my post :-)
