    Just come on over mate. No problem We start late April/early May. We have a plan on going out very soon again before the season closes. We drive at least 350 km each way so not a thing we do every weekend, sadly

    Nice jack btw. As Steve said, the driving charge in the tail end of most mortar rounds are just a shot gun shell filled with gun powder. Normally not dangerous.

    Cheers

    Its been a few days since last update,had some stuff needing to be done and some days was a horrible rain weather. Managed to get outside today,and went straight to an area where ze germanz had some stables during the war,and after the war it was supposedly used as a large dumping area. I spoke With a guy at work last week and he is going to try get permission so we can go there With a tractor or CAT digger to make some decent holes in the ground..I had lots of hits on the detector and soon had a little pit going..

    Didnt really find any interesting bits,but it shows that this Place need more digging..

    A pioneer Axe and some horseshoe Tools I think..

    Hi Inka,

    The "Strange part" you refer to is part of the frame of a wind up clock, possibly a travel alarm clock due to it's fairly small size. Here's a representative example, but obviously there are many different types.
