Thanks for that Richard. It aptly demonstrates what will work. As Mark says - ‘Just for fun.’ 73, John.

I think they must have been about for some time - I can never find a paperclip when I need one!

Only problem with the beer can vertical is the need to empty all the nasty contents first. I’m quite good at choking it down…you should have called me 'bout that. No fee for a friend, either. What could be better? A symbiotic relationship, that. Life is good, eh?

Thank you for your kind offer. I estimate that I will use about 264, 6 inch beer cans for my new top band vertical. I could probably empty four of them in an afternoon; do you think you could manage to dispose of the remainder?

I could try that disposal method. I’m not sure how my obituary would read. Maybe something like “local man expires from ruptured stomach but dies happy”

If I go into that business, what would be my advertising? “Easy terms, one pence down, one pence a year” “Money back if one of us is not satisfied (I pick)” “Minimal wait-time for complete disposal”
