    Not all tools, but all make in EWP (engineering workshop practice) at Tech school probably around the same time as mark. My soft face hammer is still at my folks along with the flipper and fork which go with the BBQ tongs. The old man still has a little piston and rod that's on his keys, made on a small cnc, way back in the day. This ball peen hammer I think was my brother's which probably means he has mine. Also made a vee block and at trade school, but have no idea where that ended up.

    Schools aren’t like they used to be hey John. I did cooking, sewing, yes sewing, plastics, sheet metal, engineering, woodwork and electronics for most of my senior years. Got A’s or A+ in all of them.

    More a storage solution but I mounted up my thicknesser today with stuff I had laying around. Two sets of drawer runners to give me flexibility of positioning and you have the below result. Should make it much less of a pain to store and use in my limited space.
