So, this geeza says he's got a few tools and would I be interested in taking them off his hands ?
Sight unseen like.
Sure mate, send them on down, I'll have a look.Image

So this arrived and I promptly lost it completely for the rest of the avo.

A lucky little piggy one could say.Image

They always go for around $2.5k, dammit. I need someone to decide I'm a worthy recipient of a free one. :hmmm:

Oli, don't you have one already ?

And, everyone - bid yourself stupid and get the one on Tarde Me.

Not often they pop up - I've only lusted after one for as long as I've lusted after Nicole Kidman.
Some 20 years I think.

They are a nice thing to have but how many of the tools are relevant in a modern workshop.

Nope, I've never even worked in a shop with one! :o

I have a few of the tools but not the set, and there's no way I can afford spending more than a grand on a tool set. :(

I've always referred to them as "god kits".

In other words, you treat the opportunity to use them as a religious experience.

I walked into a Welly workshop one day and saw one lying discarded on the floor. :huh:

They're awesome if you've got heaps of retro kit... like Rick.

I would like to point out, that it has lived on a shelf for the last 2 years. And has a nice newly sharpened facer on the BB tool
