    I supplied a rotator to a railway wheelset overhaul facility for painting. The wheels are picked up by rollers and then spun around slowly while the painter sprays the axle from side to side.

    And now a tune from the “Rolling Founts” ...... :lol::):lol:
    I reckon this idea has merit, some very early decks had 33, 45 and even the old 78 rpm.
    At present I use a lazy Susan (a rotating disc used on dinner tables for condiments and such) with my left hand providing the motive power.

    For the first to try the record deck ........ pictures.

    I’m going hunting for an old deck.
    Cheers

    Yes, that's what I said - 90% of YouTube clips are, indeed, Looney Tunes... ](*,)

    Nice "in door" work area and he's lighting up a kero pressure lantern right there next to what looks like a can of spirits!](*,)
    Poster child for "Creating a Better Idiot" I would say! I'm staying away from "YouTube" for my own protection![-o<

    So many questions... like why does he start it with the hood off? Why exactly is a lack of pressure synonemous with flare ups? And if you're that worried by them, why not opt for a soft start... oh wait, there is not preheating cup, just a blow torch so you can't... and maybe show the right way once rather than keep doing it wrong!

    I was waiting for the shelf just above the lantern to start smoking.
    What’s with the can of fuel on the same bench? Maybe a candidate for the Darwin Awards.

    I think he's actually one of the owners of BriteLyt and this is one of their promotional/instructive customer support video clips.

    Remember also that BriteLyt lanterns are advertised as burning ANY fuel, so that could just as easily be Coleman Fuel or white gas in the tank. Notwithstanding that, he recommends dumping pressure by opening the filler cap, thus venting volatile fuel vapour (and potentially spurts/splashes of liquid fuel) close to a naked flame.

    The video clip I was actually looking for shows (I think) the same person filling a BriteLyt lantern in the back of a boat from the boat's large fuel tank and sloshing/spilling gasoline all over the place. He then applies a naked flame to the lantern, miraculously managing not to self-immolate and incinerate everything else in the process. I couldn't find that clip any longer so perhaps it's now been deleted - thank God... [-o<

    Oh, and there was a 'good' one where somebody demonstrates how to light a Coleman military stove in the kitchen sink but I didn't look for that one this time...

    @george

    The thing about nominating for the Darwin Awards is that it is self-selecting.;)

    Cheers
