Chokri's sparks

Chokri’s sparks

Chokri, our seasonal gardener and handyman from Tunisia, is endlessly resourceful.

One of the things that most impressed me was his way of keeping a corrugated plastic pipe in position on top of the water tank it was emptying into. He tied a brick round the pipe on a long string and dangled it down inside the mouth of the tank. Simple but totally effective.

Today he had to chip out some old tile fixative so as to be able to re-bed the tiles. We didn’t have a robust enough chisel so he used our disc cutter to adapt the end of a twisted steel bar.

The resulting sparks were quite dramatic.
