Not a collector

As I perpetually protest I'm not a collector but a user, the arrival of my long-awaited order from Lee Valley today may take some explaining. Also some celebrating 'cos The Revenoo didn't clobber it, but that's by-the-by. Anyway, 'fraid I indulged in some slight economy with the truth at the beginning of the year... Yeah, so there are the aforementioned files and blades (including an auger bit file - at last!) and a book for a friend, but I also apparently got a little carried away in the unfortunately-named Collector's References section. I'm not a collector - I'm just a user with a keen interest in the historical aspect of the tools, okay?

Just as well the Patented Transitional & Metallic Planes in America - Vol. I & II set had sold out really...


  1. I would make a some kind of comment but think it best if I keep quiet....;)

  2. So what are you not collecting, Alf - books or tools?

  3. Maybe I should start disabling the comments box... :P

  4. If one can't cope with the sobriquet of collector perhaps one could become a dealer instead?
