Yep, Keep piling on the National stereotypes. Next you'll be telling us all the guy's across the pond from us chew gum and live on a staple diet of burgers and donuts... Wait a minute - that's true isn't it - when they're not eating at Michelin starred restaurants.

How about returning to some real 'classic' questions with factual responses - as someone put it already - less rhetoric to which I'll add - more substance. Dales hardly going to attract more folk into his garage when the potential newbies out there - who will keep this hobby going - see nothing but a load of old farts bitchin about clotted cream et al.

Nanni Torino - Steven, Did you ever bottom out who this company was, now you've got a pump ? I've still got a lovely (shaped) poor condition Nanni Torino stem, that's "gasp" going to go on a Flying Scot eventually. Also did some of the old Co2 pumps not use the sparklets / soda-syphon cartridges (substitute National stereotypical Co2 drinks cartridge here). Now there is an icon of the 50s & 60s.
