Ok..Its not what anyone expects But.... Well ...
Some time ago I had to sign A KYC ..( know your client ) and in one of the sections , being an honest chap ..I put .." Collector " of vintage empty Whisky bottles . Really . :lol:
Well , I thought that it sounds so much better than being an alcoholic ! :lol: . I have a considerable collection of empty bottles . :)
Ok , I have just found out how to cut them into cups , mugs , vases or flowerpots , light fittings and stuff like that .
A simple red hot glowing wire and a bit of cold water cuts the glass like Wow !!... No grinders or stuff like that .
I would imagine that anyone can do this ...well ..as long as there are a few empty glass bottles hanging around . :lol: .
I really never expected to do Re - cycling tips here in Rocknet .... , Oh well ! .. a change is as good as a rest :) . It takes a lot of bottle to do stuff these days :lol: .

Calf length with a vertical zip and back up clips . All weather , all terrain kit that lasts about 5 or 6 years ...in non Flip Flop conditions . :-D
