I once had someone''s lamp in for repair and they told me that they had a ''Petzl Duo'' that they could use. I didn''t sleep well that night and got up early to finish their lamp.

When I worked down South Crofty large dimensioned timbers jammed between the foot wall and the hanging wall were called stulls, that included the large timbers (two of them) that spanned upwards at an angle between a chute bed across to the hanging wall, when I say chute bed I don't mean the timber bed but the bench that was blasted out of the foot wall to put the bottoms of the stulls on.

Stulls was what we called them in "Cumbria" too - probably, like much more, brought here by the Cornishmen. IP: 86.152.227.224

That chimes with what I understand. Stulls being enormous structural baulks of timber (ie telegraph pole & upwards). Stemples are narrower in cross-section, more-or-less horizontal, and used to support something (groaning piles of deads) or suspend something (helmet-snagging wire pipe hangers).
