Thank you for the tip on the muffin style loaf. One of my favourite styles. Makes superb toast. I make one or two loaves like this Instructable each week and it will be an easy modification to try out. BTW, do you add the bicarbonate with the dry ingredients or at any other specific time in the mixing?
Excellent. I look forward to seeing your next project.
Outstanding. I look forward to your Instructable on the rifle casings. I have thought of doing something similar but wondered about attaching the case heads to mounting pins or other materials. I was thinking of using them like Conchos on denim or leather. I think the old British Nitro Express rounds would be great as well as the Eley revolver round like .450 Adams or .455 Webley. .303 Lee-Enfield rifle cases would be a natural as well. And we won't leave out our American greats like .45-70 or .45 Colt. Thanks again.
Without knowing the military codes for the numbers on the head stamp I could not be completely certain. Sometimes photo perspective on the net is not what you perceive in person. So here is what I think it is; 8 x 57 mm Mauser from German military. Howerver, it could be the much smaller 5.56 mm current NATO round which is tiny next to the Mauser. The shape looks like the 8 x 57 to me. Easy to tell though. The Mauser round would be ~8 mm inside of neck where the bullet would be seated and almost exactly 57 mm in length and nearly half inch inch diameter at the head. The current NATO round would be .22 calibre in the neck and only 45 mm long or so and much less diameter.. Hope that helped.

Ah, the family favourite. As we tend to call it in the States, 'French Toast' but I prefer, the more English saying of eggy bread. No matter what you call it it is sublime. I do prefer real maple syrup on it but any sweet topping is great.
Indeed, a quick look over at Amazon finds a 1 pound bag of powdered egg whites delivered for well under $20. That's enough for too many Julius'! Thanks again for posting this.
One of my all time favourites. They are also great with a small banana blended in. If you cannot find powdered egg whites look up 'sour mix' in a traditional bartenders recipe book. Frothed egg whites were a must in a real whisky sour. A sour mix was a blend of; citrus juice, sugar syrup, liquor, and frothed egg white. Look familiar? The Julius is this minus the alcohol. Some worry about raw egg whites and in a cocktail the alcohol sterilises it. I don't worry with it but hey, it would be raw egg product in a Julius. Thank you for sharing this. It brings back memories.
Really nice, really cool Instructable. Very useful too. Gives a nice steampunk vibe as well. While the intended use is perfect, I am intrigued by your idea of making these into lighters. I know the old Zippo lighters use a simple cotton fibre wick to hold Naptha (Ronsonol) fuel and work rather well. I would think a similar approach would work. Have you ever looked at the old Alfred Dunhill gas lighters? There may be an idea or two there a bloke could copy as well.
Great Instructable primer for traditional wet shaving. The only caveat I would add is this; If you are already using a cartridge razor I would start with the brush and soap (or soft cream) and get the feel for it. Then start in with a new razor.Typically your first three to five lathers will be a bit of an adventure and possibly frustrating. Never fear. You will just 'get it' soon. A good lather will be well hydrated but not foamy or 'broken'. You are looking for a dense lather with tiny bubbles in it rather than a lather you would wash your hands with. Just google wet shaving forums to find all you could possibly want to know about it. Kudos to the author for publishing this. Traditional wet shaving is the way to go and you won't switch back.

Fantastic instructable! Does the used motor oil smoke and smell a lot? I was wondering if new 5W oil would be a good choice? Of course lamp oil is okay but pricey. Thank you.
Ah, thank you for the clarification. Sorry to have mistaken the usage. I really like the whole vibe of this sort of instructable. Very hands on, useful, and great looking. I can see some mods being made to give it a very Victorian or Steampunk look. Thanks again.
The full Irish or English breakfast is always a favourite of mine. We do have some sourcing the black puddings here in the States but the rest is pretty easy. As for the Dubliner cheese, Kerrigold is the brand we can now find in most of our local grocers. If you don't see it ask the clerk. Sometimes it is almost like they tuck it away from sight..

Sorry, replied to the thread rather than your response. So, thank you agajn.
Good work! BTW, if you don't mind, can you share what brand of drivers you used? They look like insert bits for a driver handle but are not so short as the 25mm/1 inch bits typical with many sets. The longer bits would seem to be easier to work with. Thanks.

Wonderful instructable. While there are many newer products that put a protective finish on wood, nothing matches the beauty and colouring of these old-time finishes. Thank you for sharing this.
Nice work. This is a type of project I want to do sometime. Thank you.
Cordless Drill Battery Maintenance
Garden Girl, thank you for the response. As for tomato paste, I think the reasons for using was to save the time it takes to reduce the tomatoes. So yes, if you are growing them then it is a great way to preserve the produce. Now as for canning things like tomato juice or ketchup, is it necessary to actually pressure can or will water bath suffice? I ask because it seems like most references seem to say high acid foods like fruit and tomatoes are stable with boiling water temperature baths. I am not 100% sure. I was under the impression that the mix of acidified foods like tomatoes with vinegar made a high enough acid content to ward off spoilage. I would be canning in used 'chili sauce' bottles like Heinz brand. The size of around 12oz and the shape of the bottles makes them perfect for…

Nice. A question about yield. How many jars are filled from this recipe? They look like half pints from the photos but I am unsure. Also, I have been looking into this and have seen it suggested that rather than cooking and reducing from whole tomatoes to use canned tomato paste as a base. Would that work or does the scratch cooking make the difference? I want to make a few small batches of several types of ketchup and need to keep the ratios small. Thank you.
Leftover Fruit Salad Jam
Outstanding 'ble. I am in the process of planning a new telly antenna build and had not decided what to build. This is certainly worth a second read and further invedtigation. Finding the dish will be the easiest part. A quick listing on Craigslist will almost certainly turn up one for free. As for the antenna elements, when you use the calculator should you enter channel frequency only or is there more to it? We have channels from 15 to low 40 ' s(actual uhf channels) so the broadest spectrum would be needed. Most are within 45 miles of fairly flat terrain. So, would you pick an element tuned for the middle of the uhf channel spectrum? Thanks for great contribution.
Very nice work. I am always amazed at the ingenuity displayed here at Instructables.
