"Clinker Grabber" image wanted.
Can anyone post an image of HD tongs please?
RTFlorida put me on to Dmun's post, but the item had been removed from ebay.
Thanks eh.

Hi Jeff...............not sure exactly what you need but this came up on 'What is it' when I googled it.

This is a modern log grabber that can be bought today. Found it for sale in US and Canada but not Oz. Maybe a longer browse through the web would turn something up. Or have one made.

Can't you find something at a fireplace shop?

I've even used my kitchen tongs (with the longer handle)

Re: "Clinker Grabber" image wanted.
Thanks Inish.
Now why didn't I think of that? Wouldn't have Luddite ancestry in my blood perchance?

XJim: more fun to make 'em myself; that way my Lady thinks I'm actually earning my keep. Hahaha.
Mate, the kitchen tongs hide every time I fire up the furnace, tru. (Well that's how it seems to me anyway).

Thanks again fellers. My love in life is going bush for a few months at a time.
FornoBravo satisfies the lust whilst confined to barracks.
So much to learn, eh! (And only one life).
Eat well you mob.
Still-the-luddite (apparently)-Jeff.

My Lady doesn't talk much, so she's allowed to come most times.

Mate, the image was directed toward Frances. (She enquired as to the nature of "paperbark". Well there you go).
Why wrap a banana?
It was to hand.
Just goes to show that insanity is not necessarily confined to The Irish, eh.

Re: "Clinker Grabber" image wanted.
The above post may seem unbalanced.
Truth is, I'd just set up that image for transmission when I read your post. Seemed the perfect time to try my hand 'solo' (ie without Inish's directions), and 'voila' maybe there's a glimmer of hope for the old dog yet.

Have nutted-out design for a clinker-grabber. Nothing like that equisite forged piece from yesterday, but similar functional design. Just not handsome.

(Apparently GJB is still with the goats, eh.
What say we club together and buy the Lad an Honourary Doctorate in Pizza Practises? The forum won't be the same without him, and I can't wait years 'till he gets up to speed). Giggles.

Pssst, Jeffy,
I'm still watching your antics. I just needed a day off to make pizza and bread. Perhaps pasta al forno today.

I could never leave this forum, nowhere else to go. (Maybe a walkabout in the bush or say... the ant artic?) :)

Sad, sad. Somehow I imagined it would still say Master Builder. Guess I'll get over it.

Yer a flamin' Flash Murray Pizzo matey. You go on ahead; us lo-lives will pick up the pieces. No no! You streak on to Fame'n Glory.We'll be fine. Don't you worry about the enlisted men! You just drill'em, eh.
And I missed the 1000th!
Damned insulting wot Old Chap.(Crikey, where's Frances when one needs an interpreter) ?
Truth is George (and I'd never tell you this), you spread good vibes far and wide. Ta mate, and I raise a glass of Ruff Red to your Knighthood.

Gentlemen.... I give you Sir George of Longview!! (glug glug glug).

May your wood remain dry and your oven sturdy.
