    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.

    If you're looking for old hand tools and/or you are particularly interested in woodworking nostalgia then it is a must-attend function. If you consider a tool to only be worth using if it has a power cord then this show is *not* for you.

    I am new to the forum and pretty novice when it comes to woodworking. Do think these shows are beneficial to someone who is fairly new to the industry?

    Hi Mike; This show would only be beneficial to you if you came to our Sunday morning once a month breakfast at EggsCrepes in Ajax. (look for the announcement in the "Off Topic" forum). There will be guys there that have forgotten more than you and I will ever learn. And believe me, they don't mind telling you!

    Nothing ventured, nothing gained!

    I asked the kids if they wanted to go to the sale with me, but got fairly non-committal replies. Who understands kids these days?
    And as an aside, for those interested in joining us for our monthly woodworkers breakfast, you will be most welcome. It's held in central Ajax, perhaps 15 minutes from the Pickering Rec Center. We normally start by 8:00 am so you would have no difficulty in making the 'door-opening bell' for TOTT Show and Sale. The reminder thread is generally posted by mid-week, so watch for it as it contains the location information.

    I will be heading to the LN hand tool event on Saturday April 4 in Waterloo. SWMBO is coming with me and will do some shopping while I am at the event. We are staying over at the Comfort Inn that night and will be heading out in the morning. I just confirmed that she wouldn't mind if we headed to Pickering from Waterloo and attend the TOTT show. I must admit, she really is a great SWMBO and if I just "accidentally" leave this post up for her to "accidentally" read, that should really set me up for spending money at the LN event, The night away in Waterloo and my fortunes that I come across at the TOTT show on Sunday. See you all there.

    The Tool Group Of Canada does have a website: http://www.thetoolgroupofcanada.com/

    BUT they are not actually associated with the Tools of the Trade sale. They do list the show dates but that's mostly because they share a common interest in the show, being mostly a bunch of rabid tool collectors. ;^) ;^)

    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

    How about you Mack, you going to wear one? cheers. bill.

    Everyone attending the show from the forum should wear a name tag made from duct tape so other forumites can say hello.
    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.

    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.
