A friend gave me one of these which is rusted solid with Sulphur. I am in the process of disassembling it and repairing it but does anyone know of a manual for this beast showing an exploded view of it (preferably online as New Zealand is a bit far for folks to send anything.)

We have the following plant growing in our garden and we THINK it is a mayweed / chamomile. Can anyone i.d. it for me?

There does seem to be a double wall but neither spout connects to it. There is just the one internal space.
We wilt nettles in hot water, then dehydrate and powder and add to soups and stews. NZ has both the introduced nettle which is what you are talking about and a native nettle which CANNOT be harvested. The Native nettle is a dangerous, dangerous plant.

A mixture of olive oil & vinegar, 1:1, find a cotton cloth and have a friend / family member gently rub it over the burn.

True ENOUGH but I would point out that the Steam powerplants devised for cars were / are much less dangerous than those used in Steam Trains or Traction Engines simply because of vessel size and the weight of the vehicle.
