Unlike my multitools, knives, axes and SAKs...rucksacks, jackets, boots, air rifles...oh god  :-[  I'm happy to say I only own two power drills, one mains powered, one battery.  At lest I don't go overboard on everything.

Having most my tools stolen last year made me rationalise, I've only got what I need now  :tu:

That's a pretty beefy little motor. Automatic axe thrower perhaps?  >:D

looking forward to hearing the plans for the motor - is that a soldering iron on the bottom right or what is it ?

Mags is right - Eamo is not a collector. He has a disparate group of knives and multitools. NOT a collection.

I'm very pleased, both the motor and router work,  :D :D lovely brass plate
The motor is just a spare (the spork polisher is on it's second or third motor  :ahhh )
Yes it's an old style soldering iron (from before they invented electricity   ;) )

Little Marples wood chisel, cleaned up well, takes a good edge. I'm feeling a bit guilty I knocked the pretty lady down on price now  :-[
And the hammer feels like a Stanley to me but there's no stamp  :think:

Nice cache Tony!  Working motor and router make them bonus buys and extra points toward the best buy of the week.  Pry bars that size are alway handy.  I have a couple because I can't seem to find one when I need it.  :facepalm:

It's always a gamble buying electrical stuff at a boot sale, some b*******s will lie to you just to get a sale,
I've been very lucky so far  :D

A few years ago I bought a very cool looking desk clock at a boot sale, the guy says “yes it's working  just needs a battery“
so I went home one pound lighter with my new clock, it didn't work so I opened up the little clock mechanism, empty!  :o
Someone had removed all the little plastic cogs  :ahhh :twak:

I do have one or two of those little bars now, but as you say very handy and will fit in the bottom of a toolbox     :tu:

A handle for a hand adze maybe?  :shrug:
Another Stanley hammer  :-[
And near the bottom is a RalphMartindale copra knife  :think:

Do I see a BAT(British army knife) near the bottom with black scales?

Hooked, like everyone else. :D

@ Pablo,
Yes it's a 1941 BAK made in Sheffield by A. DODSON  :tu:
It's in quite good condition but with not much snap on the main blade

I have done a little modifying to the copra knife,
It feels like it should be thrown at a target  :ahhh  :D  and yes that's blood on the shop cloth  :-[

I got it out as I was thinking the martindale and the MOD  knife are a bit similar, slab of steel with a couple of wood slabs riveted to the sides   :think:

Now I know I did buy it with modding in mind but I'm liking it so far  :shrug: I am thinking about adding a welt to the sheath. maybe  :think:
at the moment...

Big old Stanley screwdriver, Swan Morton blade holder and another speed square

And just for David...     :D
A (I think) home made adze (I also think there's a better name for it) looks like someone cut up an axe  :think:

Firstly, who knew Swan Morton had made a better brass handled folder in the old days?  :o  :D

Secondly who knew Swan Morton has stopped making the classic brass handle??  :( :ahhh :(
