'Confined to barracks' we look for things to do indoors. My wife has taken to emptying all the drawers for a grand 'sort out' and it's amazing what you come across !
This strange object for example :-




If you think this is a windup you'd be completely correct :-




It REALLY IS a wind up torch !

I bought it some time ago and guess it must be around 10 years old ?
Amazingly, when I pressed the ON button it came on and still had some charge !

I have a couple that were handed out free at a agricultural show electrical company stand. Must be 10 years + now and still woking.

We keep a wind-up torch in the car. There used to be a battery torch but the battery was always flat on the rare occasions it was needed.

That's a coincidence - I found one in a drawer at the weekend, looks similar except it's a silver colour rather than orange. Mine would work only with the winder, so I'm waiting for a new LiR 2032 battery to come via ebay.
