Mark me as impressed.
Thank you Paul,
From my perspicitve, All I'm trying to do is get the tools back in to like new or near like new condition so that they can be enjoyed and used for another 50 years (hopefully). The work done by some of the people on this sight (as far as restorations go) is producing museum quality work. That is way beyond my goal or level of expertise:o. But I do what I can:D.
