    As it is, you've found a buried pot of gold, so can afford to buy some Tannoys for yourself.
    Have you listened to this month's choice in the Album Club?

    Nope. I have other ways of finding Tannoys anyway!

    Ha ha , Touche !!
    On an aside , my old milking machine man , told me his father was a proper dowser ,old school.
    All the locals in the early twenties used to get him to come and dowse for a suitable place for a well! He would take his Hazel stick and pronounce to dig there , and how deep too!!
    One person dug down and found water . He thought the well would be too shallow ,so proceeded to make it deeper !
    The water dissappeared
    They asked him what had happened and he duely scolded them but redowsed and instructed then to go down a further ten feet or whatever !
    They found a good supply again !!

    Underground streams and different strata , and all that
    I only ride 'em, I don't know what makes 'em work

    My grandad used a dowser to find a suitable place for a well in France before I was born. I've seen the well and could have guessed water was likely to be there, it was at the bottom of a hill almost in a valley formed with another nearby hill and I know there's shale there and a spring a few hundred yards away. Simple.

    One of our neighbours does dowsing and used it to find a couple of long forgotten pipes joining a couple of our ponds and one from a drain. He just used the rods as a tool, not claiming any mystic powers.

    The bloke I knew did not use rods, just a little weight on the end of a bit of string. You could ask it yes or no questions and it would revolve clockwise for 'yes' and anti-clockwise for 'no'

    On the Randi show he was given an OS map with all the legends removed and divided into an 8 by 8 grid and he had to pick the grid that had an ancient monument in it. He had no problem.

    Iíve used the two bend rods method, and it works for me. I have no idea why. I suspected it has something to do with the moving water in the pipe creating a current? But, the pipe doesnít need to have water in it, or it could be stopped up? And it can be plastic pipe, so, Iím at a loss. But Iíve used it several times over the years with worthwhile results.

    A similar observation, Iíve noticed that the weather reacts to the river. Rain and snow coming across the map, will change direction when it reaches the river, not far from where I live. It will snow on one side, but not the other, rain too. I suspect the moving water creates some kind of airborne electrical currents?
