Default Working with Wood Show

The annual Working with Wood Show is on in Sydney this Friday sat, sun.

I am taking a leave day on Friday to see what bargains I can get.

I wonder how far a credit card will stretch before it breaks?

It will streach further than you might want it to!! Make sure to post pics of the goodies you bring home.

My guess James is that it depends if your wife is with you! Have a great day James.

The card companies make them indestructible. They'll stretch from here to the moon.

You want to know how far they will stretch James? Just ask Chrysler and GM!

James you lucky dog you. Maybe Harry can me up with you and you could use his credit card. You have fun and drop the wife off at a mall on the way.

great idea. I wonder if he will fax me the numbers.....LOL

Maree, will be working, so I will be undisturbed...

As harry said on a previous occasion, if I get something nice like a 14" band saw, I won't fit it in my shed.

Maybe an aluminium plate for the RT. for starters...

A second 10' x 10' shed dedicated to a band saw sounds the way to go James.

You are probably right there, Harry.

Anyway I did not spend too much money.

Timbecon were not there this year and they were who I was going to get the aluminium plate from....

Might have to order some gear from Oak Park.

In fact the whole show was about 20% smaller than previous years.

One item I did get was a 6000 grit Japanese stone for sharpening my chisels and plane irons.

Yes James, word has it that since changing hands, Timbecon has been in decline. Once you become adept at using your new expensive sharpening stone, it may pay me to parcel up all my cutting tools and ship them over to you in Sydney. What are friends for?
