What is the problem with *this*
statement of Rebbi Yochanan from another statement of his regarding a
Mishnah (in 'Notel') which permits one to carry a basket which has a stone
(b) Why can we not answer that there was also a grain of frankincense -
left over from the fire - on the pan, which was still fit to smell?
(c) Why will it not suffice to say that the grain of frankincense is
significant to other people?

lamp is Chayav - a proof for Rav and Shmuel.
How do those Amora'im who
permit putting together a coppersmith's bed, overcome this proof?

Menorah or a coppersmith's bed loosely. The Tana Kama speaks about putting
together 'Milbenos ha'Mitah' and 'Levachim shel Sachivas'.
(b) What does the Tana Kama say about putting them together?
(c) Is it possible to actually be *Chayav* for doing this?
(d) They asked Rava (Rav Chama, according to Rabeinu Chananel - whose text
