Same here. I negotiated a mid day cut off though and managed to spend nearly all morning getting some more paint. Of course I went on the bike because it is "so much quicker" Tee hee

Yep, I cooked mine up on a little paraffin stove in the shed. Chain on top, let it sink in, bit of stiff wire tied to each end so I could lift it out again. And tie it up so it could drip back into the tin.

Duckhams, still got a tin of that. Works on U/Js too if heated.

Pre Duckhams it used to be called Linklyfe and was one of the range of Filtrate Lubricants manufactured by a firm called Edward Joy, if memory serves.
