Ok I'm having a go at telling you about this, let's see if it works....

On Benchtalk101 the 3 UNIQUE prizes presented by their generous benefactors.

Did I mention the Richard Arnold Charity Auction which is now a prize draw ? :eusa-whistle: ;)

As a rule you need to be in and bidding big to win this class of "toolerie" but as with last year's event it's simple, you make a donation of any amount to suit your pocket and your in with a chance to win...

It's all explained on this week's Benchtalk101
Cheers Andy

Ps its important if you are not known to us or anonymous and wish to be entered in the draw please e-mail Richard Arnold with your details to richarnold@sky.com

Just to expand on what Andy has posted

Richard Arnold has made a lovely replica of a coachmaker's plough plane which was photographed in "The Art of Fine Tools" (an excellent book, by the way, I've had my copy for many years and it's still something I look through now and again) by Sandor Nagyszalanczy.

Jim Hendricks has made a beautiful "Golden Ratio Divider" with a stunning box to go with it.

I don't actually know what Bill's been up to. Not sure if it's an intended secret and it will be revealed tomorrow, or if I've missed it somehow :eusa-think:

For a chance to win the prizes, support a good cause, and get a warm fuzzy feeling inside, you'll need to donate to the link below. All proceeds go to Macmillan Cancer Support.

Glad someone is reading carefully :oops:
I'll contact administration.
No firm date for draw but sooner than later and perhaps confirmed tonight.

I must admit that it looks like I've confused things by posting this, sorry.

The flyer is for TONIGHTS Benchtalk101 meeting where all 3 prizes will be discussed and its a weekly live on Zoom event that all are welcome to participate.

Please let me know if there's any questions.
Cheers Andy

Although this decreases the chance that my number will be drawn for any of these lovely, one-off objects, I'd like to urge everyone who reads this to go to the Just Giving page linked to above and make a donation, of whatever size you can afford.
If you want further convincing, have a look at the video of last night's discussion when it appears on the Benchtalk 101 YouTube channel in a day or two.
And even if you can't join in, you'll enjoy seeing how some skilled craftspeople went about their projects.
