Wink Weekend Odd Jobs.

Youngest son is coming home for the weekend so we have a few odd jobs for him to do for us. I want all paint supplies,tools which are rarely used,bolts,screws, odds & ends,etc,etc moved to the tool shed in the back yard.
He is also gonna help me install my big Triton router in the bench in the shop/garage where I can place my dust collector alongside.It is a fairly central position so it should work out well. Actually,all 4 of our offspring will be home this coming weekend because it is Mother's Day on Sunday. I'd better find some more jobs that need doing.(Just Kidding).Best wishes & happy Mother's Day to all Mums out in RF land. James jj777746.

That's how weekends go. My Son in Law is coming over on Sunday, and he likes to do something while he's here, so I better think of something we can do out in the shop.

Since retirement all my jobs have been odd, regardless of the day of the week.

My jobs are not odd jobs. They just turn out that way.

@ Stick,my old tools wouldn't be worth travelling 50 miles for,let alone ?? thousands. However,a big guy like you would be handy to help with the heavy jobs.

Call me a craftsman, artisan, or artistic, and I will accept that. Call me an artist and you will likely get a quite rude comment in return. I am not a @#$%ing artist.
