    Having spent only one night away in the "Tardis" so far. Myself, Mrs Hussar and the two dogs are off for the weekend tomorrow.
    Spent the day loadng up with bits and pieces including my telescope, hopefully be able to get away from too much light pollution.
    I did however make one small cockup earlier today. I decided to change the gas cylinder as the level of the original (butane) was unknown. I purchased a 13kg propane cylinder and dug out an "old" regulator from the garage.
    Connected it all up, opened the cylinder valve and went to the hob to bleed gas through, promptly blew the burner tops off. Apparently it is best not to blast 2 bar of pressure through the gas plunbing....!!!!
    All ok after adjusting the regulator.:Eeek:

    On that note you should be using the fixed pressure regulator and not the adjustable one, they are made for blowlamps:thumb::thumb::thumb::thumb::thumb:
