    Not only recycled, but with integrated water saving technology - brilliant

    In addition to the workbench changes (other thread), I needed a holder for watches I might wear on any given day. Made out of bits and pieces, and certainly not elegant. The uprights turn and lift off, as I put dowels in the base, and a hole for the dowels in the uprights.



    Best wishes,

    The third and final ship's lamp of this type nearing completion. The second image with the clamps is to get the rubber seal to sit correctly within the access lid. I haven't decided what to do with this lamp once completed.

    Being at a bit of a loose end today (weather too bad for cycling, gardening etc) I took a coffee to the garage and looked for a job. I bought this pedestal drill earlier in the year, it looked unloved and hadn't been used for some time.

    A few hours later, it looks like the second photo.

    Well I finally got around to checking out a few of my late fathers old toolboxes.....mostly junk, (he was never much of a handyman) but my trained eye spotted a couple of old abused chisels. I'm a bit OCD when it comes to my garage, tools and equipment, and it's fair to say that my workshop is pretty well kitted out....

    saw some potential in the barely discernable "cast steel imprints on these 2 /
    first step was to do a basic clean on the wire brush machine

    some lathe work to clean up some old boxwood handles
    and after some precision sharpening on the Sorby pro-edge and some machine polishing with compound and sisal mop, the finished items


    a couple of Marples chisels from the 1940-50 period, crucible steel that both takes and holds an edge, ready to see me out, and part of a growing collection of 150 plus edged tools in the shop.

    Congratulations, they are stunning and are now a reflection of your professional skilful eye and hand as well as a credit to their maker .
