    Default Selling off all my gear

    I know this is not the buy/sell page but I'm desperate. I'm posting this under extreme pressure from my lovely wife.
    As much as I love woodwork, it takes up too much of my time and I am struggling to keep up with the everyday basics such as cleaning and maintaining my home, so something has to give.
    I will be re-homing all my gear.
    Please don't ask any questions, as I can't handle talking about it.
    Below is a list of what's available. All FREE of charge, but to good homes only.
    Serious inquiries only please.
    Thanks for reading and understanding...









    1. Dustpan and brush
    2. Sponges
    3. Dusters
    4. Mop and bucket
    5. Window cleaner
    6. Broom
    7. Dishwashing liquid
    8. Laundry detergent
    9. Fabric softener
    10. Laundry baskets
    11. Toilet brush
    12. Cleaning sprays
    13. Scrubbing brushes

    I love this Doug!

    It reminds me of the newspaper advert: "Looking for a wife who owns a tractor ... send photo of the tractor".

    Please send the window cleaner to me. My windows need cleaning and I am too busy to do it my self. Hope they are not afraid of heights or are able to reach high up with tools from ground.

    I see there is no vacuum cleaner / dust extractor listed so you must be keeping some of the good gear to keep using.

    Funny you should mention that - I copied the joke from a blacksmithing forum, changed blacksmithing to woodwork, of course. In the original, there was a vacuum listed but I swapped it for broom for that very reason.

    I have the opposite problem, she keeps encouraging me to buy stuff. I bought a motorbike 10 years ago I've ridden about twice. That it has doubled in value is moot....

    An unusual problem indeed. I have a friend who always buys a red motorbile whenever he upgrades. His wife thinks it's the same motorbike he has had since before they got married.

    I like your friends thinking. Most women wouldn't notice the new shiny chromework anyway.
    To grow old is mandatory, growing up is optional.
