I like the list of Dodgy items ending with a pestle and mortar!!! Sounds like a loner with a strange hobby that could easily have got out of control but maybe he never grew out of the schoolboy fascination with making bangs I think I lost interest when I became more interested in girls!! I suppose it's just a different sort of bang!!!

There was quite a thread a while ago after a road was closed in North East England after Police stopped a motorhome.
The case has just gone to court and here is a report from Middlesbrough Crown Court. It makes interesting reading and I can now understand why this was such a serious case. The man seems to be a bit of a nutter.

Charcoal, pestle & mortar, glycerine, piping and I'll bet he had diesel and sugar as well !
On that basis we had all better own up now !

(Sounds like he was making gunpowder, they obviously have not found the pig shit and sulphur!)

An expensive experience.. still..!
I remember as a kid scraping a load of red matches and grinding them up and packing them into a cast iron spud gun casing topped off with a small ball-bearing for the bullet ....
Went out into the covered ally way and fired it .... BANG...

I was deaf for two days and was picking shrapnel out of my burnt hand for weeks....?

don’t ask me what I did with fireworks as I’ll probably get arrested....
