    Default A novel way to store and transport the Falcon fleet

    Hi all,

    here is another example of my way of solving a storage problem,
    this time I had to find a home for my fleet of Falcon bench planes
    and other Pope tools.

    That looks great. The possibilities for the suitcase transportation seem endless...handsaws, planes, chisels, AK-47s, suitcase nukes etc. etc..

    What I would really like to get hold of, however, is your supplier of suitcases.

    Just like the movies. Man in dark suit places case on hotel room bed, opens it and begins to assemble the long range sniper No7 jointer plane.

    For AK-47s the fit is better with a violin case. Or so I’m told.

    I've got dozens of old cases of various shapes and sizes that I gathered up from garage sales,
    op shops and clearing sales, I found that they make ideal storage units (with handles) for my tool collection.

    I'll try to get a few more examples photographed to show their versatility, (but none of them
    contain lethal weapons).

    Default Pope spanners

    Hi Andrew,

    sorry for the delay in answering your questions about
    the spanners, they were put away but now have access
    to another set.

    From the information I have they were made for only
    a short 10 year or so period after WW2 to supply the local
    markets demand for tools, while there were no tools being
    imported.

    They were only for light work, being made from pressed metal,
    there were 5 in the set held together with metal a clip.

    They were A-F, sizes from 1/4" to 1"

    Hope that helps.

    Graham.
