For me it's "Back To The Futur"...I can't come and provide some help, because all of this doesn't already occure. We're only, friday evening, here...Smile

(Between you and me, Eki, I couldn't help, I would be a very bad mechanic in general...) So as you wrote in your funny title "Fix it Yourself"

I remember that from people who have lied there -they try to fix everything themselves! A lot cheaper that way! In that, I have two left hands:(

Oi, that looks like a dangerous position to be in, in traffic.

My Honda came with a small toolkit and a place to keep it in the motorcycle, but I never would have known what to do with the tools.

Eki, thanks for your questions. That post was a bit confusing. First because of the terminology. In the diaspora they call it menorah or Chanuka menora or Chanuka lamp. In Israel one name (coined in late 19th century by Mrs. Ben-Yehuda) is all we need: chanukiya.
I'm afraid I don't understand this one myself. I just quoted what was available from a website. Maybe they mean that candles were stuck in those little cups on the seat of the "bench." Maybe they put oil and wicks in the cups.
Can't find any photos of these old chanukiot in use and the info on the Web is sparse.
My photo is not great, shot through glass with reflecting going on. And you can't tell the scale. The chanukiya was about 30 cm long.
