Love the drill to the right. It looks NEW. :ahhh

I think we call them a 'Hand Brace' or a 'Brace and Bit' (with the drill bit)
Its a British made 'Comet No 110'
I bought it from a lovely old lady selling off her deceased husbands tools, all the tools were in good used condition, I think he might have died in his workshop  :salute:

Tony not the last sale  :( :( :(.

Do they now head in doors/under cover  :think: :think: :think:

Some of them carry on in car parks and old airfields Mat...... I might just have to follow  :D

That is a relief Tony it would be disastrous for the local vinegar suppliers & I would hate for you too go into rust withdraws  :ahhh :ahhh :D :D.

I do look forward to seeing your weekly haul  :tu: :D

Well mate, if you need a nice piece of seasoned ash to hang those bits just let me know.
I've cut two pieces, more then enough for 4 hatches. When it's fixed I'm gonna use the drawknife for shaping the handles. I'm quite exited to try it.  :)

Thanks Frank  (I will be replying to your mail shortly  :-[ )

Looking forward to seeing how these all turn out, that draw knife looks sharper now but not sure about the axes  :think:  the heads look darker now is it just the picture?

Did you see my replacement Draw knife above?  :D

Another Billyhook  :ahhh :D. Tony is your 'projects' box encroaching into your living room  :think: :P :D :D. Not that my project box is getting any smaller  ::) :-[ :-[. I looked at my LM Pulse project today & promptly put it back into the box BUT I did finally sort out my ST300's gritty plier pivot, I needed to pull it apart & sand the pliers pivot face , only half of it got polished by the factory ??? ???

Bloody cold -4 here last night, So I surprised myself  by deciding to go 'booting'  :facepalm:

A couple of 'odd' ones today
A nice looking Ax head wedged on to a bit of 2” x 1” batten with a metal strap nailed over
And a tiny, over sharpened, over hammered head with a tiny crack in the poll and a badly fitted handle (but the price was right   ::) )
Also another putty knife, hacking knife and ball peen hammer



Trying to get warm now  :ahhh
