    Ambiguity? Doesn't that mean that you can dig with your left hand as well as your right?

    Steve, is that bolt left hand thread? the notches on the flats would normally denote this.
    I always thought that the notches were there to facilitate wire locking........?

    Close tolerance bolts have a groove cut around the head. Wire locking requires a hole to feed the wire through. These are usually through the bolt head.

    Hold up kimo sabi, both the brown jug and the candle holder came out of my hole which I left(temporarily) to help A certain person clear his spoil away as he had dug another gravel pit and also my back was killing me, then a certain poacher ( no names no pack drill) jumped in when he got bored with his hole and started digging mine, admittedly he found the pieces in my hole and I was gracious enough to LET HIM pick which one he wanted, I thought the brown jug matched his eyes so it was a good choice, the candle holder was too prissy for him so it now rests in my wife's glass cabinet, and mighty pleased she was, I think he's just gutted that he broke a very nice shaving brush, which really made us laugh in between his swearing and mumblings

    I took the broken shaving brush home. I'll display it with my broken razor and my 'Palmolive' shaving cream tube. In fact, I reckon I could make up a nice little 'domestic' display with my 'Brylcreem' bottle, 'Dr West's Miracle Tuft' toothbrush and 'Ipana' toothpaste tube.

    I haven't photographed all of our marked broken pottery, as one broken plate looks very much like another!
    However, this kiddies plate (produced 1925-1940) is by quiet a famous illustrator. Mabel Lucie Attwell.
