Re: Borde Flasche and Borde stove

Nice. Welcome to the club! As mentioned the Flasche is not actually designed for the stove but who cares? They look great together.

Recent deliveries: 242B, 236 and a 119 slant

As mentioned before, I'm not hunting much for new stuff lately, but sometimes I can't help myself... IMG_20210714_170817.jpg The 119 was from Ernie here. It took about forever to clear customs in Switzerland, and only seemed to do so after I nudged them and they asked about the 'value' - and then wh...

Re: How do I delete a post

To confirm (as a site admin): You can delete a post up until there is a new post after it in the thread. You can always edit a post, even after a new post. Why would we allow posts to be deleted at any time? Imagine everyone does this then you end up with threads either empty, or no posts at all on ...
