Hmm – it’s not here: http://www.leevalley.com/home/temprl/cc3.jpg

Or here : http://www.leevalley.com/home/temprl/cc4.jpg

Or in with these… : http://www.leevalley.com/home/temprl/cc5.jpg

Maybe it’s under one these boxes?.. : http://www.leevalley.com/home/temprl/cc7.jpg

It’d stick out like a sore thumb here: http://www.leevalley.com/home/temprl/cc11.jpg

Not there either…: http://www.leevalley.com/home/temprl/cc6.jpg

Oh wait – I remember… there it is…in the back…: http://www.leevalley.com/home/temprl/cc22.jpg

Found it just in time, was starting to have the shakes…: http://www.leevalley.com/home/temprl/cc23.jpg

Can't wait to open the boxes with the GOOD stuff...

Cheers -

Rob, you've got waaay too much clutter there: I can help: I'll just take the contents of the glass display case (and the junk on top of it) in that second to last picture... All looks like pretty low value space wasting stuff to me.. :whistle: :^o

This, I presume, was just a quick visit to a local garage / carboot sale? Nothing really special there, was there? Quick 5 min walk around and off you went......

I was expecting this: :roll:

Recent events have given me cause to consult Doctor Rudi Beetlebaumhausen, Professor of Psychiatry at the Institute of Repulsive Compulsive Disorders in Vienna. I thought others might be interested in the transcript of our conversation.

Guten Morgen, Herr Professor

Guten Morgen. It is interesting that should have chosen to say Good Morning, and not wiv zer hello... Could zis be a manifestation of zer sub-conscious alvays seeking to start ze day anew I vunder? Tell me-

Er, could we leave that for now and get to the main point? What is your professional opinion of zis? Er, I mean, this?

Ah, verrrry interesting. I am, of course, familiar viv zis gentleman. He is now vun of my examples for my students. A very interesting case.

But why does he do it?

Vell, it is qvite simple. He has a compulsive desire to cause jealousy, desire and drool damage to voodvorkers and their keyboards. Ve are calling zis "Droolhausen by Proxy". Zis is ein small tribute to meinself, with which I am proud.

Voodvorkers?

Ja, ja. Vorkers in vood, mit der plane unt the chisels, ja?

Oh, you mean woodworkers!

Ja, that is vot I am saying. In most case zis manifests itself in der showing of, er, vot do you call zem in zer vernacular...?

Gloats?

Ja, gloats. In showing zeese "gloats" to vun or two known voodvorking friends. But in recent cases zis has become more widespread amongst zer sufferers and zey are making der gloats to many hundreds, even zousands, of innocent voodvorkers. Ve are calling this "Mass Droolhausen by Proxy" here at zer Institute.

Yes, I've noticed the phenomenon... But what makes this case so special?

Hmm, "phenomenon" is ein interesting choice of vord...

But about this case, Herr Beetlebaumhausen...?

Ah, zat is verrrry simple qvestion to answer. This sufferer has taken zings much further unt started to manufacturer his own items for sale. This causes zer spread of zer drooling to come not just from the sufferer, but from zose persons who purchase zeese items and also make the gloating to further voodvorkers. It is a remarkable case, is it not?

Indeed.

Ve are calling zis aspect of zer condition "Mass Droolhausen Proxy by Proxy" - but only after we haf taken the deep breath. Usually ve are calling it MDPP. Zer side effects are of interest also.

Oh?

Ja, voodvorkers are now not knowing ven to call zer plane "low angle" unt ven to call it "bevel up". I am already seeing many cases caused by zis confusion...

But Professor, is there a cure for MDPP?

Alas, no, ve are not finding such a cure. Ve believe the patient's condition can only vorsen.

Vorsen?

Ja, vorsen. Already zis search for zer coffee mug is causing me zer heebie jeebies. Zis could be zer sign of deterioration in his condition zat ve haf been expecting. I vould suggest zer is great danger of zer increased risk of new items appearing soon from zis gentleman. Avoid ze website and your mailbox at all costs!

Ah, sound advice, Professor. Thank you. Erm... d'you think I should be avoiding reviewing these items as well then?

VOT?!!! You are vun of zer vuns who is helping this man in his delusions?! Making vis the searching for zer pictures unt everyzing?!

Vun of zer vuns, what?

Ve must take action! Zis vill not hurt vun bit...

Vot vont? Er, what... erm, I don't really like injections that mu... Ooooo, pretty colours... Thank you, Professor. You've bee... Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz


Eventually the effects wore off and these canvas jackets are surprisingly comfortable. Apparently there's a good chance I can be cured of my compulsion to say "whilst" as well; sort of a two for one offer... No knowledge of German was harmed in the making of this post, and of course Rob isn't under the care of Professor Beetlebaumhausen of Vienna.

No, it's Professor Bootlebaumhausen of Hamburg... :wink:

Duckin' and Runnin', Alf

It's not good Alf, you have a serious condition and it could be contagious. You seem to be putting the blame on that person called Rob but we all know it was you that started the epidemic. Even I, a committed Norm disciple have started to succumb. I found myself with a LV low angle smoother and a LV medium bull nose plane but there are no tails, nothing seems to rotate. Is there no hope??

Hi John -

I have to admit I'm humbled by Alf's response... she must have pulled an all nighter to get that done :lol:

The tools are all part of our collection. We're trying to catalogue (as in record) what we have, so we can be a tad more efficient in fleshing out various areas. While we're still a few years from having a dedicated museum - we are going to start circulating what we have among our stores. We're trying to put together 16 full displays of tools (50-200 pcs ea) so we can swap 'em every two months or so.

What's in the photos (Alf got all 23 photo's, which is what undoubtedly caused her writing palsy) are just the tools we had "hanging around" on the mezzanine in our warehouse... we have a fair bit more that's already organised, or on display in various locations.

Having covered a lot of the "basics", we're starting to acquire some pricey items - and want to ensure we have a clear collection strategy, not only to avoid duplication, but to ensure that each part of the collection has a defined purpose. Really, we're collecting for an audience - so scope is an important factor.

It's a lot of fun!

Cheers -

Rob
