The turd looking thing is a paint stripping disk off Sparkys battery grinder.

Ah a flap wheel or brillo pad with balls👍

So... it's fair to say you both had a nice time spooning? Good to know...

The card axe thing... hmmm. The spear bit worked though I'm not sure what useful purpose it served. The other bit took a lot of (not my) effort to lash in to the stick, performed OK at clearing brambles but you'd never have cut a tree down with it. The saw was rubbish, it just clogged up and required cleaning almost every stroke. More irritatingly it cut through the lashing cord. We did break it whilst batoning but you need to split logs somehow! I was surprised that it snapped rather than bending. The grind on the blade was a bit shonky out of the packet, but it sharpened up easily enough. The edge was very easy to ding.

Aside from that, a thoroughly enjoyable weekend. Sparky even showed me round his car boot which was a great privilege. I even bought myself some rust of my very own :)

Well I did make it home but the journey didn't go quite to plan. I set off later than hoped (too hot to move), and got slower and slower in the heat. Coupled with problems with one of my tyres it meant that I'd only done about 35 miles in 3 hours and want going to make it home before about 10 o'clock. So I phoned my wife to come and rescue me.  :D

Anyway, thanks to the guys for a great weekend.  :like:

Looks like everyone had a most enjoyable time and I wish I could have made it. Hopefully next year though.
Pictures of most of my work can be found on my Facebook Page.
Also have a look at my Shapeways Shop and SW Torch Shop for 3D printed items.

Not to make fun of that throw, mate, but guess what appeared when the video ended?...

Smart move, Chris. Glad you didn't get yourself into too much trouble.

Looks like another excellent meet, chaps.  :cheers:

Nice one lads

Happy memories from last year:
