    Great find mate!! In the process of cleaning mine up; bit of a job!! Nice to see a really good one; makes me realise how much the blade on mine has been worn!!

    Every time I go to boot sales I never find anything decent. I get some old tools occasionally but the vast majority of the time it's pretty dire. Great find though.

    Isn't it nice when someone says "that's a great piece of kit, where did you buy that", then you can modestly reply "you can't buy it, I made it myself". The moral is, it's amazing what you can achieve if you put your mind to it.
