Subject: [Revlist] Tent Pegs etc.
At the risk of turning away thousands of potential customers for my own
tent pegs (or pins), I found eye opening evidence that folks across the
pond apparently STILL use the kind of wood tent pegs which could be
found in the 18th century.
Here is info on how to hand make tent pegs:
A video showing the procedure can be found at:
Here is a source showing that such tent pegs are readily available in
the UK: http://www.gocb.co.uk/gocb_002.htm
Look at the item called "tent buttons":
"Replicas for 18th Century Living History"
