    I think what Daz might mean Plassy is that with a flat fry pan directly on top of the new age wind shields the heat is too centralised causing uneven cooking.
    Unlike traditional camping cooktops these rippers don’t have side wind wings but special circular shields around each jet thingymebob.
    Does allow you to put huge water/yabby pots and woks atop exceeding the cookers width but frypans really struggle to keep to a low and slow even heat.
    The raised BBQ OEM plate still finds two ‘hot spots’ above each burner but nowhere near as bad as a capped frypan if any of that makes sense
    Great Cookers

    Nope, didn't feel anything doc. Might need to see yours in action to understand.

    Been doing a bit of Rooftop eyeballing juggling thinking and getting warmed for a quick combo far east revisit/new venture bush blast before the SC's kick in.

    You'll understand. I'm speaking MB.

    Yeah so my plate sits straight in the wind shield. As MB stated it causes a real Hot spot and everything burns. The plate made for the unit has feet on it that sit the plate about 10mm to 15mm up off the shield allowing the heat to be a broader spread. In Tassie I had a wire trivet that I trialed under the plate to lift ans it helped a bit.

    They are a waist of time though if you dont also do the action clean detailed in the YT links. The factory Low setting would at best be a High Simmer. Once rhe heat is in these things will cook your dinner on Low.

    The only good thing about an 80 series is..... the front end?? Wrong!!, the Engine?? Wrong!! the Full Time 4WD system?? Wrong!! Its the NissanPatrol.com.au stubby holder fitted over the transfer lever.

    Steering wheel puller

    Build this ugly thing to pull the steering wheel of my Y60. It did the job, so I can't complain.

    Haha! I reckon you could use that when doing a Brake pad change too mate, thought that was what it was. Perfect for pushing that piston back.

    I saw this homemade tools thread and thought Id post some pics of a sheet bender I made some weeks ago. I had no special reason to build it apart from the fact that I always wanted one and, after watching a few YT vids on DIY units and seeing as I had most of what I needed anyway, I decided to get into it.
    Its almost all done with DC TIG. Getting in some practice on my new Unimig Razor 200 AC/DC.

    As luck would have it, I had just recently installed a diesel heater in our caravan and wanted to protect the fragile hot air tubing so I made a tunnel from 1.6mm tread plate ally all bent with this bender.

    I might get around to painting it one day..
