DIY TE Coal Scuttle
« on: November 17, 2020, 09:26:43 pm »
DIY TE Coal Scuttle, certainly not as nifty looking as the commercial ones I've seen before.

Made it out of the bottom of a Zippo lighter fuel can, some gravel and sprayed black.

Looks great Jim  8)  but where did you come across an empty Zippo fuel can?  ;) :D

Glued? Screwed? Magnet?

They're bloody everywhere!!!!! Felt like a waste to chuck 'em.

Cut it out so that it had a fold on one side, so it can be taken off and on easily.

If you want to duplicate the original scuttle, tmuir posted this drawing on the Mamod forum some time ago:

I made one, and it works just fine.

Cool Idea - and perfect look - much more realistic!
Some years ago I wanted to complete my Wilesco Roller
with a Dynamo and Lantern. I mounted a wooden Box to
the rear as per pictures....

Thanks Jim, zoomed in and now I can see it. These Mamod Centurions are really growing on me...

tenniV11 the genny looks good in your nice wooden box and I like the old oil lamp.

Nick, I really like the Centurion. Out of my 10 mobiles, its always the one that I want to run the most.
