    Something in Yew

    Iíve seen a few drill bit Awls on the net so as I need an awl I thought Iíd have a go at one. I think Iíll probably make another one in a different wood with a smaller bit.

    I love this. Great idea to use worn out bits.
    You know your old when your sweetie says "lets go upstairs and make love" and you reply "honey, I can't do both."

    Sensible handle well put together it takes one to find out the need for various sizes. I remember in Cooma in the sixties watching at the Snowy Mountains Hydro HQ. A German guy and his tool kit,it was spectacular. He repaired all the typewriters etc. He had about 150 screwdrivers (who would have believed it even then). He never allowed anyone else to touch them. He never butchered any screws I can tell you.

    So like the Banker who surveyed the daily papers for the financial reports when I was a kid,he told me you put your heart into those things that mean the most to you.

    Thanks for sharing it is a ripper mate.

    Yesterday my son in law gave me a Sound Bar to use with the 32 inch TV in the kitchen for fathers Day..Typical of TV,s today skinny and sound the quality of a Cement Mixer.Instructions 18 inches square,double sided,full of confusion. My only need was a a wire two feet long,three minutes to agonise where to really need to plug it in. I spent hours and the rubbish I was fed from so many sources was amazing. Two minutes to connect when you know where.Story of my life.Happy ending.The secret of life knowing where and when and having the wisdom necessary.

    Peter.
