      Topper, if you ever (in no hurry) make it to a True Value store again, could you look at size and prices and post 'm here? I remember seeing some heavy cookware pans at one of their stores a few months ago, but they were all enamel covered . Here in CM no True Value shops and their website only shows this: http://www.truevalue.co.th/product.php?id=159 It says 'graniteware', no price. Found a bit more info here.

        First up is an Ericsson hot air water pump, something like this one:



        The family would be much happier keeping this thing going and cooking away while pumping the pond during the dreaded rain interval in June.

        Then I want one of these:



        Well any stationary steam engine will do. It seems so much more practical to run a steam engine than a petrol one up in the sticks but I keep being told they are too old fashioned....Bah Humbug!

              Well the first thing one needs to do is to put your location in your profile. No good me finding a tractor in Krabi if you live in Nong Khai.

              OK there is or was an old small Kubota B series for sale opposite Bira racetrack.

              No it is not vintage but is about 20hp+ just like the TE. It can do anything the TE can do for gardening. OK it probably doesn't have the auto 3 point linkage for ploughing but you never know. Parts are available from Kubota as well as all add on and accessories.

              An old tractor is a tool. So if it can do the job and is in decent nick the price will be relative.

              OK now the philosophical bit. I came to Asia because it is DIFFERENT. Not so I could pine for all the stuff I cannot get here.

                Smokeless Citronella Oil

                I'll take 10 gallons and pay for the postage I've been looking for years.

                Actually it doesn't have to be smokeless at all. Just plain old Citronella oil for lamps.

                      ^^^ Here's another. Is this "vintage" enough? It even has a grass cutter attachment.

                        Voɔɒlnɘɒl, thanks for the 'hunting' but no, not old enough... I like the rounder shapes and the overall looks of the 50s/early 60s, in cars, motorbikes, boats and tractors. (airplanes too) Guess it has something to do what I saw and admired as a child, dreamed of and never had.

                        Chiang Mai is the location, btw but if the wanted item is 'far away', I'll travel.

                          I recently priced a small, used tractor like that with a grass cutting attachment and the guy wanted 300,000 for it. It was already rusting and leaking oil.

                          I can't put my finger on the reason this dynamic exists.
                          1. Its an import and should be taxed to death to create wealth generation for the rich.
                          2. Wealthy people can circumvent pesky import taxes and buy it for near value.
                          3. It's a measure to protect the employment of legions of weed wacking Somchais.
                          4. Anybody with enough land to require a machine like this should either buy the goddamn thing at 10x value or stfu.

                          There are many more perfectly good reasons, I'm sure.

                            Serrolit, that's a nice little smoker! Can't be too difficult to make one (and a few more) once all the interior racks and hooks are found. I'll ask the guys who make the big BBQ and chimney thingies used by street vendors.

                            Another source for smokers is this: http://www.gasbbqthailand.com/page/smoker.html but they're gas-fired and quite pricey.

                            luckyjim, how about an afternoon in the kitchen? http://www.buzzle.com/articles/how-t...grass-oil.html

                              that a good link the guy, does some quality grillers and may be able to supply what I need, a gas fired griller with a couple of radiators on each side, so one can put meat on a metal rod for grilling. some one makes them because there is one not too far away, where they grill chicken.
