    Portable Benchtop Spring Pole Lathe

    Great little pole lathe. The squeaky noise while turning may be due to lack of grease where the centres sit in the worked wood. I use tallow available from a plumbers supplies, Toolstation, Screwfix, etc. Try to use a longer, steady pedalling action to get more turns per stroke and steadier working. To learn more about working with greenwood join a local bodgers or greenwood working group. Check out groups at https://www.bodgers.org.uk/index.php/local-groups

    Make a Collapsible 2QT Canteen

    I have to admit that I enjoy wine in a box. When empty the liner can be recycled as a water carrier complete with tap. I use them on my sea-kayaking expeditions where I have to carry 4 or 5 days water supply, I can usually find top ups in that time.Some are a little tricky to extract the tap but I'll put together an instructable showing how. It will be my first. Oops, cwsner, got there first.
