I've unearthed one of these needing cleaning, sharpening and setting.

Anyone looking for a project?

And there was me thinking you were about to let the machine made camp down by praising some old hand tool and giving it a makeover!

No chance Robert. I have no use for the thing but realising there are some masochists out there who might like it and want to rescue it from landfill.

How much do you want for it Bob? I might give that a look down the line. One that can be done over time, a loooooong time! :eusa-shifty:

Hi mate yep sorry for the delay in responding, I’ve been away for a few days. It arrived back end of last week apparently (wife was non-committal on finer details) or at least that’s when she found it when we got back from holidays, so thank you very much.

I’ll have a look at cleaning it up soon. Need an excuse to try out my new ‘sand’ blasting attachment for my compressor. Bought a bulk bag of walnut shell media which is apparently great for rust removal as it’s harder than the rust but softer than the metal. Let’s see...

No worries. I was more concerning it might have been lost in the post.
Have fun derusting.
