    It did! Pretty cool looking with the design on the spoon. Doesn't the spoon break when bending? I tried heating the spoon, not heating the spoon. They all died on me. but maybe I need higher quality cutlery.
    Anyway, thx a lot for the inspiration!

    As you can see it didn't break ;) I just bend it cold. Don't know about quality. They are rather thin though. I buy these tea spoons at recycling and second hand shops. Often they have a box with a lot of cutlery and to be honest... when I see something I like and think is useable I try to bend it a bit. Just to feel how it reacts.

    Just give it another try and show us your craftsmanship!!!

    I usually rummage through those bins, and now I have another reason to go sometime next week.

    With regards to the Weizen, try Grolsch Puur Weizen if you like a hint of banana.
    Athink hint:p

    It's the small things in life, really ;)
    That works for food/beverages and rummaging through bins I suppose xD

    If you google Dutch milk maid they all have pigtails. I was originally thinking Heidi, but she was Swiss it turns out


    And didn't have pigtails either so a failure all round there

    That's true, although I have never seen an actual milkmaid. I think they may be creatures of myth..

    I would have guessed Heidi had pigtails, too! It just fits.

    For what it's worth, I can do long pigtails and I'm Dutch. So there is some truth to your original statement.

    I'm sure Dutch milk maids are myths.

    But once they marry they'd be mythsus wouldn't they?

    Up and checking latest activity on these forums before I go out to help the GF at her apartment again. Well during the moving and furnishing it came in handy several times. A basic set of tools. Just saw a picture in the 'random picture' thread and remembered how I came to this set.

    I was still a lurker awaiting approval, last year August. I saw pictures of this Wera ratchet set and had to buy it. If you're the enabler... you wll shure know... ;)

    Got the screwdriver too, added a little Knipex Cobra and noname 'visegrip' and am set.

    Anyway I realy like this set of basic tools for the small chores in and around the house.

    Cobra and 'visegrip' neatly fit in with the screwdriver

    For today I'll be needing one of the powertools... you know how it is when moving in to new home, putting up decoration and stuff... Have to take my drill and must not forget spirit level, screws and plugs... extension cord... what else???
