    I had a porcelain bowl lying about that
    came with the lot from the bay that I
    got the Shillelagh with. The bowl was
    cracked, so it was of no use. However,
    it did have a wind cap on it that I've now
    removed and placed on a modified Falcon
    bowl. Have yet to test it, but I'm sure it'll
    do nicely. The Falcon bowl WAS a rusticated
    Dover. :whis:

    Nice cap! Been having some windy days here in the Midwest where that might come in handy.

    Thank you, sir! I almost consulted
    you on this one. In the end, I figured
    'what's the worse that could happen?' :rolleyes:

    Cheers, Iain. I actually had to turn down
    the bowl a bit to get the cap to fit onto the
    top of it.

    It looks good on there, and looks like a prefect fit.​
