I've been thinking about it and I reckon a hammer is a multitool  >:D

Its odd how it changes from week to week
There were quite a few 'footprints' (I got myself a new pair) then as I've been looking out for them for someone I've not seen another pair  :think:

Or the bottle openers I got a few then nothing for weeks till today and everyone had them  :gimme:

The springs will come in handy with another project I have in mind  :cheers:

 :pok: £2.98 from Wilkinsons, comes recommend from the Bee household :)



Despite the similar bottle it is not a tasty mint condiment and should not be used as such... don't say I didn't warn you ;)

what are all those springs for?

They have come in handy already as part of the
wobble damping apparatus on my Spork polishing system  :dwts:

Not a SAK to be seen today but someone will be happy as they were on every stall  ;)

The thing in the middle is a tiny plane that uses a safety razor as a blade  :tu:

What brand is that old micrometer if I may ask? :)

Bob, It says in very small writing   “THE L.S. STARRETT Co
                                                       THOL MASS U.S.A.
                                                                 No3
                                                                   52”

David, Of course it has a bottle opener (made by Ikea  ;))

I'm thinking I should make another one
That one was done in a bit of a rush so I wouldn't be the only one without a Spork at the meet  :-[
Its needs a bit of time spent on the forky bit

Well, one common exchange, usually spoken with a fat tongue lisp, goes something like, "Thay Buddy, can I borrow your ath-hole mic?"

Which usually solicits a reply of, "Certainly, as long as you don't mind the smell!"

Which is generally followed by peels of adolescent giggles. :D :D :D

It is well used and the letters are very small :)

Now I need someone to teach me how to use it properly and I guess I should look out for a metric one now  :think:


That's deep compared with some of the guys I work with  :rofl:

Some of your friends have a deep ath :think: What's that used to measure? ;)

I remember using micrometers a lot a school but these days I have a cheap digital one that's much easier on the eyes and brain :)

Maybe you can cobble a Multitool together from that collection...a little brazing and Araldite should do it...

Did you make that Spork?  :tu:

Mostly I just make a mess  :angel:

Yes I made the spork so I wouldn't be the odd one out at the last UK meet  :D



Today I picked this interesting old penknife
It looks like there's a 'C' over an 'R' inside a triangle and
TRIANGOIO on the main blade
I'm hoping Neil or someone will tell me something about it  ;)

And this lovely but not loved folding knife and fork  :tu:

I don't know to be honest  :think:
Its 12 and a half inches long
It has a pattern on the blade and the handle (does this mean its not genuine??
The sheath is leather with a wood liner
It does feel nice in my hand and the blade has been sharpened with a grindstone a few times so its been used for work

The kukri is definitely not genuine  ;) I would guess it was from a flea market somewhere in the world  ::) these types are decorative not really for very hard work oh and these cheap ones usually have a lion on the pommel and are not full tang so be careful if using for heavy chopping  ;)

Thanks for that John  :salute:
The good thing is it was quite cheap, the guy had 4, two were bigger and looked like they were chrome plated or something
This was the best one there  ;)

Ooops some of the patina came off when I polished it  ::)
It has sharpened up quite well with my butchers steel

The tang comes through the pommel and needs a little hammer to tighten it up a bit  :think:
That isn't a very good lion  :rant:
