Hello Dangermouse,

I'm sorry, I don't know. I've come across a lot of black metal tools, but that has usually come
about through the older guys wiping them over with oil before putting them away.

Nice to hear from you. Would be great to meet up. Your bench is very nice!

I don't have a shop I'm afraid, I deal in vintage tools from a room in my house, haha. Stuff that comes
in and will go soon stays in the room, stuff that I want to hang onto goes in the loft. The long term plan
was/is to get enough good tools together to kit out a workshop space for not much money, but workshop
spaces in my neck of the woods are now so expensive, I'm not sure that's going to happen soon.

So the tool dealing and blogging has become a sort of therapy for dealling with a 'no-outside-space-house'
and it keeps me connected with the woodworking community. Although what I really want to do is start
learning proper traditional casework from the old chaps who have been doing it for years.

hi mark

I've sent you an email through your website. You will have received a newsletter by now about a few planes I'm selling, I also have a lot of very good saws at the moment, but lots more stuff passing through soon. Let me know if you want to meet, would be good to photograph your grandfathers stuff.
