@ckoei, @Nig and @seasiderdave The Palmer gun really looked its most appealing when the glass and steel syringe where in place. James Bond had nothing on us and our smart device! Boiling of equipment was on a weekly basis and then housed in an old fashioned glass butter dish sited on the top shelf of the fridge reeking of surgical spirit. My father hated everything to do with diabetes and managed to secure a delivery of plastic syringes and needles for me(all used just the once!) up until the delights of the Novopen.
I loved my chemistry set especially when it bubbled over the top. Good job we don’t relyon it now!
