Can you tell us more about these oatcakes, including specifics on the  
temperamental behavior? Maybe someone here has some useful experience  
working with them. I know Giulielma Penn's recipe from the late 17th  
century (which  is pretty close to Froissart's description of oatcake  
manufacturing, containing essentially oats and water), but which is  
somewhat different from a modern "traditional" oatcake recipe, worked  
out rather well the last time I tried it.
