I've had a great day tidying our little shed, ready to become an All-British Workshop, using kit made in Britain. It's early days, and I'm only just finding out what stuff I might be able to find to equip the shed. So far we've got a good number of hand tools, including a Stanley Yankee telescopic screwdriver. I'm told you can buy a chuck for this. There's a hand-powered grinder from a car boot sale, and Record vices. The bench is made from mahogany, but I know it was made in Britain because my Dad built it, and I must have stood at it as a young lad. The shaving horse fits into the vice, which I've now located on the right-hand side of the bench.
