Bangs in cans

      The two Jack Russell Terriers and I were doing a bit of ratting in some old barns and pig styes and there, tucked up against the wall in a dark corner were some more tins or cans of diesel starter detonators. Once again they must be out of date technology but if you are starting a diesel rotavator something would have to provide the initial starting energy hence the bang in a can.
      The more 'modern' blue tins have, to my eye at least, superseded a couple of really original splendid earlier designs. Leave well alone I say, and I must remember to cadge those empty early design tins off the farmer.
