So I just posted my intro over in Neanderhaven... cause that is where my attention wavered to. But now, whilst looking over the rest of the forum I see there is a formal Introduction section. Apologies to all and sundry, in particular the moderators for my transgression.
I'm new to this forum after lurking for a while. I spent my formative years in rec.ww, then the Oldtools list when we ditched the flame wars for decent talk on old tools. By day I'm a library type in an engineering research lab and the rest of the time, just me. A long time collector and user of hand tools as well as books and ephemera of the same. Admittedly at times I am more a collector than a user. But in defense of my problem, I do send boxloads out to auction every few years when I run out of room...hence returning stuff to circulation.
Looking forward to spending lots more time here
