Thanks for that  :tu:  I'm now feeling either not quite so insane, or glad there are others around with similar tendencies (albeit at a MUCH grander scale than me)  :rofl:

Yes indeed, thanks for posting this. :tu: Mr. Geesin's book has been out for several months now. I bought a copy (direct from the author) and can heartily recommend it to anyone interested in old British tools and tool manufacturers. :salute:

Reckon that's a great pic Tony!     :like:        The town I live in still has some brick streets left. You can still see in places where the old trolly cars ran.

Just a great video of a true collector. I'm just amazed he has gone so deep into the subject, and thankful he would actually proceed to write a book and share the knowledge. A potential treasure from a mechanical design and development perspective.

I realized that there is no way back after seeing this. Hence I did the Google thing, and ordered the book. I scare myself a bit here, but I suspect it will be read quite thoroughly :)

Thanks to Ron for making the world that bit more colorful.
