Dan’s the man…..I would concur with you regarding the very nice folks I have met here….everyone has been very kind and generous to the newcomers and to the folks they have met on here (after being on for some time). This is a great resource for folks with our affliction (woodworking addicts). I am on alot of sites similar to this one….but I hardly log on to them anymore…as this site is more active and more responsive with questions and suggestions…Kudo’s once again to Martin for making it possible.

Gary, it looks like a plumbing vent….possibly for steam heating…on the floor their.

Having lived in London for a year that thing sticking up from the floor is a hot water riser for the radiator.
Most homes are heated from a boiler which also heats the fresh water
