Hi Philly

It is about time you presented us with an updated picture of your porn .. uh, tool collection! I am tired at looking at the same old picture - and I know that you have acquired several (ha!) additions since it was taken.

This goes for everyone as well. Anything new to show off?

I have just finished cleaning up in preparation for my next project, a hall table (if you squint, you can see a drawing of it on one door), and took some pics as the workshop is rarely this clean i(actually, as I write this only a day later, it is looking like mayhem again!).

One bigger picture ...



and a few details ...



Looking forward to seeing what you've got.

Regards from Perth

Derek

Derek;

I am starting to feel rather sad about that abhorted visit to Perth. Reminds me of a certain call I made in Melbourne earlier this year

Tsk. I thought it was really going to be a challenge, like "Don't have an article printed in any mag for one whole month" or "Go to a woodworking show and come away empty-handed". :roll: :lol: He's going to clean you up with one hand tied behind his back, Derek. It'll be another Aussie defeat I fear... [-X :wink:

Cheers, Alf

Derek,

Can you tell me what the object is top right on the top shelf of the open cabinet?
Looks a bit plane-like but seems to have a strange handle.

Regards,
Mudman

I'm so predictable... #-o

It's Derek's infill, made from a #4 with jarrah, LN blade and Mathieson chipbreaker IIRC.

Cheers, Alf

Yeah, I know. I didn't expect to "win" - just wanted to see where Philly is at. You too! Post a couple of pics next time you clean up (or not clean up).

Mudman, wot can I say. She is so predictable. And so quick! Here is another - same picture - just more easily accessible. I built this infill from the shell of a Stanley #4 some years ago, more as an experiment in design than an expectation of having a supersmoother. But it really works amazingly well. The LN blade is bedded at 55 degrees and the mouth is very small. It doesn't get much use these days.



Regards from Perth

Yeah, and I noticed Derek didn't invite you to play.

Now where did I put that new Spear & Jackson 4 point rip with the split nuts... :lol:

Found some pics for you. Apologise for not having too much to gloat with but since Chris bought his S+S I've lost the will to keep up...... :wink:
Here goes....





Sorry about this one....

and finally.......

Yes-an actual project. Just to prove I'm not a collector....... :wink:
As you can see, I've been a good boy. Just need that LA Jointer and new RP and that's all I want. :whistle:
Cheers
Philly :D

Philly!

Very nice collection, and it's good to see that you are actually using them! :p

I particularly like the picture of your mother on the wall. Why is she wearing plaid and jeans? :D

OK, now I don't feel so bad. I really don't like holding onto tools that I do not use, and a few have accumulated ... just sneaked into the workshop and hid behind the doors, you understand...

Regards from Perth

Don't feel bad-it's like your a foster father, or something..... I see it as looking after wayward tools. :roll:
I like knowing my Mum is looking over me as I play with my toys, too! :twisted:
By the way-I can stop any time I want to. Honest! :sign3:
Best regards
Philly :wink:

You cut me to the very quick, sir. I am wounded to the core. [-( I also notice he wasn't such a fool as to ask you either. :p :lol:

Deary me, planes with boxes?! At least no-one can accuse me of planes in boxes... [-X :lol: I think you need to work on your screwdrivers, Phil. Derek has a definite first innings lead in that respect. Not to mention a nice quick 50 scored by the multitude of chisels. Nope, I'm afraid you need to put in some extra work in the nets, er, car boot sales, or we could be looking at a draw... :(

Cheers, Alf

Not me. I don't have very many. Been thinning lately (well, a few handsaws and what not have found their way in). A few powered things are next to go.

And after the last week, I'm about ready for the whole lot. Then I could start all over again. :roll:

Did someone mention chisels (says Derek moving in for the kill)? Here are a few "extras" that do not fit in the chisel till.

Bergs and Witherbys:



and my favourite dovetail chisels, made from orphan Bergs and handles I turned from Jarrah:



And while I am at it ...... here are a few saws..

Backsaws



#358 (which Mike recently helped me restore)



and one more tool I made myself (do these count - I have several?) ..



That is enough. Come in Alf and Mike .. you really don't need an invite do you?

Regards from Perth

Well I was going to be good, but I worry that you're making Philly follow-on, and I think he's in danger of suffering a collapse in the middle order... 8-[ Trouble is I think I may be out-classed; quantity I can do, but the quality may let me down. :-k

Cheers, Alf

Oh modesty be hanged...I look at "quality" this way. If they work, they're quality. Much the more if they are old and work.

Without waxing too romantic, I look at my small 1/2" Greenlee BE chisel (admittedly not a "classy" chisel/company) that I have ground down even more on the sides for paring DTs (a prev. owner ground 'em down), and it just makes me wonder what all this lowly chisel has helped to make.

And besides, Alf. I should think you're in a worse pickle than I. It would take a good day just for me to pull things out of their, uh, resting places, do the arranging for pics, take and process them. Then it would take longer to put them all back.

Nice one-the chisels have forced me to back off! :lol:
Otherwise the tailed routers are gonna come out and then its gonna get dirty! :twisted:
In my defense I have pared down my modest toolbox a bit recently......... 8-[
Cheers
Philly :wink:
