  • Tools of the Trade sale-Pickering?

    A friend tells me that this is scheduled for Sunday, April 5 at the Pickering Recreation Center. I haven't seen any notice of it but perhaps someone here knows? Is anyone here planning to attend?
    Thanks, Rick.

    I'll be there!

    Meet at noon, walk down to the <something> and Firkin for lunch, back to the sale afterwards for one more pass...

      I'll be there also Rick. I look forward to seeing you again. See if you can drag Mack, the unrepentant electron burner to the handtool show. Mind you he may get turned back at the door!

      I unfortunately won't be able to join you for lunch Darrell. I'll be minding a table!


      Regards,

      Ed

        I will definitly be there. Always enjoy looking at all the different tools and like to bring home a little something. I'll be the guy with the knuckles dragging on the ground, wait, i think that will be too vague at a show like that. cheers. bill.

          I like to go just to see older stuff. Kinda like a woodworkers museum of sorts for me and I appreciate history/museums in general.

          Would love to buy a few hand tools as I really have none to speak of, but would be totally "Lost" trying to assess the good from the bad. There's a reason I've chosen "Lost In The Woods" as a handle, I truly am, and believe with the incredible amount of areas that encompass woodworking, I always will be "Lost" in something related to woodworking, although some areas I have "Found" myself not as "Lost" thru time and effort.

            If I recall correctly, they did the same thing last year. They took advantage of our breakfast on the 1st Sunday of the month and scheduled their Tools of the Trade show on the same day knowing full well there would be a huge attendance at our breakfast, and hoping to get a few of our attendees to go to their show!

            It feels really great to sell a pen;
            It feels even greater to give one to a friend!

            If your presence doesn't make an impact,
            Your absence won't make a difference!

              Hey Mack, are you talking about the size of the attendees or the quantity of attendees? bill.

                    Oh dear! That sounds positively dangerous -- I'll have to be sure to take a list ... er, really ... ;)

                      Ed I know that you don't like to miss events, so here is my proposition. You go to lunch, and I will (take care) of your saws. Don't even worry about rushing back to the table. Both saws will be just fine, trust me.

                        Everyone attending the show from the forum should wear a name tag made from duct tape so other forumites can say hello. Sorry Mack, i won't wear mine on my mouth.

                          Hey Bill; That's a great idea. Who gave it to you?
                          Sorry Mack, i won't wear mine on my mouth
                          I wouldn't expect you to. That would waste a lot of tape! Hope to see you at the show.

                            Hey Mack, i was suprised i came up with it too.
                            My wife said the same thing about the duct tape on my mouth but she seemed to be o.k. with wasting the tape. LOL
                            I'll wear one but i won't put my picture on it, you'll have to guess who i am lol.
                            How about you Mack, you going to wear one? cheers. bill.

                              Where is this listed? The Pickering Rec center never seems to know when it is, I just get the news if I recall from the previous show, or see something on a board. Does the tool group have a site? I'm just down the road so I hate to miss this one.
