If any of you find yourselves in South Norfolk this coming weekend I am hosting a vintage and collectable tool sale at my premises on Saturday 13th May 2023 from 9am to 1pm.
There are boxes and boxes of old tools in excellent condition that were collected by a friends late father during his life and they are all now looking for new homes.
Not only will there be tools but there will also be cake - lots of cake!
Would be great to see some of you

I was there on Friday morning/ lunchtime. Plenty to see and buy.
But I found it was painfully overcrowded. Maybe not too many people but no where near enough space?
I suppose this is a good problem as it shows the level of interest in woodworking - I wonder how the official attendance figures are. I never attended pre COVID so have nothing to compare to.
Looking forward to next year - in a bigger space!
Just returned after a long weekend at Harrogate, Friday was the busiest day (always is) Saturday was steady and Sunday was very quiet. Sunday is always the slow day with around 1/3 of the visitors compared to Friday. Good to see customers, meet up with friends and look at new kit, I came away with a Camvac for my router table.


I had a good time Saturday and thought it was back to pre-covid, @Peter Sefton I didn't say hello as you were very busy every time I went past!
I find it strange how far Trend have pivoted to CNC at these shows, surely they should have more of the Hobbyist stuff there?!?
Saw some good demos, I think I'd like to see more but I'm not sure what if that makes sense (demos or stands)!
Still came away having spent more than I was going to but everything was 'an offer' and I prefer seeing people rather than just a website, also the chance to touch and feel - and in the case of the texturing tool I bought try before I bought is always a deal sealer!


I went to Newark on Friday. Thought it was very busy and quite a poor relation to Harrogate. Some good turning demonstrators
I went yesterday, and it is always smaller than harrogate. Bought quite a few bowl blanks, met the 2 nice folk from Joblings, watched a good demo from Andrew Hall turning. Not much else took my eye. It was nice to have a good drive out in sunshine too.
