Fab haul of vintage loot. Brass backsaw means I may have to finally have a crack at some dovetails. The two Moore and Wright instruments have the better or me, one is for turning I think, the other has the better of me!

They would appear to be a odd-leg caliper for scribing a mark a set distance from an edge, and an outside calliper. And an ebony gauge. A lovely Sheffield steel punch. If I had to guess, I'd say they are old new stock found in the cellar of a rural Co. Dublin hardware store that closed in the '80s.

The chisel appears to be a 3/4" Sheffield cast steel chisel ground down to 18mm for a depth of 4mm, presumably for veneer work.

And that bottle looks remarkably like a bottle of fine whiskey, distilled in the big Cooley distillery and aged in bourbon casks in old riverside John Locke distillery in Kilbeggan, which is excellent over ice, but not so valuable that you couldn't make a cocktail if so desired.

Just guessing, like.

Would have been rude not to! Happy Xmas all, I hope you’ve had a great day and are now chilling out!

The black nail is the lasting legacy of my SS gift. Belted myself with a hammer, doh.

Pressies opened, dinner ate, house cleaned, dishwasher emptied x2, dog walked x2, family movie watched, and everyone bar me is conked out in bed.

Feet up, Wheel of Time on big screen, whiskey time.
The only thing I recall of Tullamore Dew is the worst hangover I ever had before or since!

I had an acquaintance who came from Cobh. He drank Jameson's (insisting it is jamm eson's not Jameson's) and wouldn't touch that Northern Irish muck Bushmills. Every time I bought a round I gave him Bushmills - he never noticed for years. Black Bush is rather wonderful, I surprised they haven't had to rename it yet.

Please disregard this post if you are offended, it is only meant for comedic value

I don't drink Bushmills either! It's either Irish whiskey or Scotch single malts.

Is Bushmills Irish? An excellent demonstration of Northern Irish Unionism... we're not Irish, we're British! But our cows, sheep, eggs and whiskey are Irish!

I'm not even a capital R republican. But that BS annoys the bejaysus out of me.
