I like this show. Just watched yesterday's edition. Got a little bit misty eyed with the violin story.

That was a shame. He did a good job on cleaning it up. Maybe the owner will run it on meths.

Well I reckon we should write a Mass forum email and ask them WHY this guy called himself a expert when he used solid fuel tablets in a meths burner and once it got steam up he stared at it expecting it to just self start BUT I guess a camera  must of told him to spin the flywheel as he did this the second time around.

I believe it has also been repainted at some point, far too red... both of mine are darker, more of a maroon.
