    Heading is misleading....

    23rd is Sun, not Sat.

    If you find a post of mine that is missing a pic that you'd like to see, let me know & I'll see if I can find a copy.

    That was to give you time to get down here and experience our balmy weather

    I plan on being there, but I'll be incognito.

    The ugg boots and foil under the beanie might be a giveaway though...

    Thumbs up

    G'day Sean,

    I'll be there but I might be in disguise as the Forum caps haven't come to surface yet. Been looking forward to it for a while now. I'll be there from when the starting gates open until about 10:30.

    Cheers..................Sean

    G'day Sean,

    In particular I'm on the look out for a Record 43, a moving fillister for myself and anything else that grabs me and some lathe chisels for my FIL.

    Should be able to spot you, I'll be on the lookout for a bloke with a forum cap and I'll be the bloke swinging a viking axe clearing others out of the way so we can get to the tables.

    Skew'll blend in with all the other shaggy beards, normally I'd blend in too but I have my once weekly shave on Saturday nights.

    Default So what did you buy?

    Went looking for a blck plane. Ended up with a Stanley 60. Very happy with it. Works well with little fettling. Bought some tools for my 4 year old toolbox. He was very happy.

    I didn't think it was as packed as last time. About 40 in line when arrived at about 8.45.

    G'day,

    Thought the same as MarpleMan, in that the crowd was down a bit. I got what I was after - a moving fillister plane, a Daveco (?) copy of a Reord 43 and a gouge chisel for FIL.

    I overheard that the next Tool Drool is in November.

    Did you get to it Skew? Sorry I couldn't get you there - had to go on to other places from the Tool Drool.

    Gday all

    Dunno about the crowd, my memory's not so hot when tool lust takes over!

    I managed 3 wooden spokeshaves in varying states of disrepair, a matheson woody plane iron & cap, a small metal marking guage, and a well used wooden mallet for $2 ! (Been "gunna" make one for years, usually just grab a chunk of something solid when needed, done & dusted now - for $2 that's one "gunna" off the list ! )

    Said g'day to Waldo (nursing his treasures too ), lanky lad that he is.

    'Nother drool done, 'nother nice morning had by self & young scooter.


    Cheers....................Sean

    G'day Sean,

    And they was mine too! I saw you lusting over them.

    Watch out with that young bloke of yours - if he was counting all those planes, imagine what he could be doing next time, better hide that wallet - unless of course he's buying them for me.

    I just stood in the chook poo longer than most, that's all - unless you're just short.

    Unfortunately, my schedule was rearranged by other parties. Apparently, "being neighbourly" and fixing a bloody fence is more important than anything that I could possibly arrange. :mad:

    It sounds like Scooter managed to score my spokeshaves, dammit!

    Sometimes I hate my life.

    Reckoned he got over to over 1000 Kept him occupied & interested anyway, half the battle

    Could have a point there...

    Sorry you couldn't make it, Skew, from what Chris said it sounds like your careful avoidance of cleanshavenness would fit right in...

    Left more wooden spokies than I bought, plenty for you next time, mate.


    Cheers.................Sean

    Waldo,
    Did you get a good deal on that moving fillister? Don't have a pic do you?
    Edit:
    I am down in Melb, and missed the Tool Sale - no car down here and could not be bothered getting a taxi to the train station - damn Melbourne with its no busses on Sunday policy!
    Cheers,
    Clinton
