A Nice Swop.
One of the directors of a local commercial wood yard asked if was interested in a board of burr oak. As it stands I have enough timber to last me 10 years or more, but a board this nice was too good to refuse! It measures 9" wide x 46" long x 2" thick and is nice and dry.
We agreed a swop for a dovetail guide and a Lignum mallet which left both of us happy.
On a completely different note I've also bought this old Junior Whitehead band saw dating back to around 1950. Although it's only a small machine just 40" high I had to remove the door and cast iron table before I could lift it and even then it was a real struggle. They don't make them like that anymore!
