    I would love for Techno and maybe Terry to watch this tripe and give their honest opinion.

    If my grandsons couldn't produce a better effort than that I would disown them.

    What I find hard to believe is that he's put the effort into making this and has used the crappiest bits of timber with no real strength to do it so that it wobbles all over ... and as for using nails as 'hinges' ... and Auzzies would say 'strewth'!o_O

    He couldn't afford one, so he made it out of some wood and string, 20cm long, roughly half of 40. (y)
