    It sure is. I have one as well.
    Certainly have to feel very motivated to use it.
    It's bl**dy heavy.

    I've a couple which must be 1.8 or 2m. I've got some stainless boat prop shafts too, with so many uses.

    I have one of those prybars, around six foot long 1/14 dia, with a squared point on one end and the pry on the other, they are a railway track layers tool, I don't think I've ever used it but cant bring myself to get rid of it.

    They are so useful.

    Yes, Wife s done my front numberplate, unless obviously someone reversed into it.

    it's thin mild steel, just a little bit of character....

    Not important.

    I can't find the picture (or even remember which website it was - it might have been someone on the rec.metalworking usenet group),
    but someone posted up a picture of a (US) towhitch mounted bottle rack for collecting welding gas from the "store"
    (possibly acetylene, because I remember him saying it needed to be upright).

    now *that* would make people give you plenty of room!
