    2020 Secret Santa ......and we're off!

    Thanks Lurker, I have been so busy and have sadly not spent much time in my workshop in the last year or so. I occasionally have a browse on the site to see what is happening. It is hard to believe we joined around 14 years ago! Glad to be taking part in Secret Santa. Pretty sure I have...

    Merry Christmas forum friends, I am chuffed with my Secret Santa gift. A matching pair of hand made marking gauges. Thank you Santa. I am going to put these to good use in the workshop. The gauges are made from Oak, a clever sandwich of round pieces for the body which together hold the centre...
