Not that we can;t be bothered Martyn ...simply that I'm not looking to buy anything ..which is, at least for me, one of the main reasons for going to a show.

Something to do with a 400 mile drive. I'd be much more interested in these shows if the displayed some top notch woodwork.....but even then, I'm not driving that far.

I'd love to go. 62 years on the 'wrong side of the sheugh' and now that I'm on the same piece of dry(ish) land and within reasonable driving time, Life intervenes. I would imagine I'm not alone.

I've gone off woodworking shows after doing quite a few where there seemed endless turning displays and tools sales and not a lot else.
Whilst I can very much appreciate the skills of the wood turners, I can't get too excited about wood turning myself.

Well if you’re still there on Saturday Martyn perhaps we can have a chat, I figure you’re stopping down that way as it’s a fair old trek from Falkirk.

Hi all

Firstly sorry if I upset anyone no offence was meant but I definitely find these trade shows a useful source of ideas even if I don’t buy any tools

And Doug that sounds good I am staying down at the attached caravaning site as we are bring our motorhome down so we are there all weekend it would be good to have a chat Saturday

Enjoy chaps.

I have been once, 9 years ago. I found it to be okay but like some others, found it to be more about the tool sellers that what I was looking for, which was ideas and inspirations as I started out in woodworking (in my rediscovery phase of my life).

I will go back at some point but it's a good 2-3 hour drive which I don't have the time for this time round.
Cheers
