Santa did a early delivery as otherwise there would be no room for the toys {-)


Also the weight of this on the back of the sleigh means the extra weight means the reindeer would struggle

I purchased the Rigid drum/belt sander recently and I'm already in love with it (although to be fair, I used my father's quite a bit beforehand so I had some idea of how it was).  Light-years better than a sanding drum in a drill press for bringing frame and keel pieces into final shape. 

This isn't mine, mine is sitting forlornly on the shop floor now while I find somewhere to put it!

I'm interested in tiny versions of regular size things.

I have just bought an Aerokits 46" Crash Tender kit. I bought a ready made one a couple off months ago, but haven't sailed it yet as I much prefer to sail boats I have built. Here are a few pictures of the kit and the completed version.
I was fortunate to see that this was for sale only 25 miles away from me, so snapped it up. It appears to be complete, but as an all-wood kit, any missing or damaged parts can easily be re-made.

Currently I'm mid "dry January" but since being given a bottle of Flatnose that I really liked thank you  :kiss:
I thought I'd treat myself for wet February and save £6.99 per bottle postage by buying all three of their products.

Looks interesting, they are even using the Danish letter å in the name (Bårelegs Islay) :-)) But they also state "Due to COVID-19 and Brexit, we need to take a short break from shipping to you." so I'll have to wait  <:(
