Default I must have been blessed

because I have some amazing friends. The postal delivery man staggered up to our front door today with a very heavy parcel. I removed the carton which revealed a beautifully made finger jointed box measuring 23.5" x 11.75" and containing six high quality turning chisels. This was an "early birthday present" from a forum friend. I feel humbled in having made so many real friends since becoming a member of this forum. I won't mention this members name for fear of embarrassing him, but he knows how touched I am at such a gesture.

The measure of a man is those he chooses as friends..... your friend must be a pretty great guy.


I think a lot of folks on this forum have felt blessed for getting to know you!

They look nice sitting in a box, Harry.

At the time of posting this Mike you were way off and the only reason that you know now is that you wormed it out of me by subterfuge.

Sorry Bob but for once in your life you are wrong. The only clue that I will give is to say they were not sent to me from the USA. My dear friend who sent them embarrasses easily so I won't risk that.
The set you have shown I would guess came out of the same factory but appears to be a smaller light weight starter set compared to mine where the 1" gauge is a full 1/4" thick.
