This is about the benefits of scrounging. Although I did not know I was doing that at the time.
I was out the other night at Hash House Harriers. No. This is not a version of the infamous AA. For those of you who have not heard of Hash, it is a group of like minded individuals who have an interest in running and drinking (not necessarily in that order). It is international and has been around since just after WWII (hence we have had the name far longer than the drug).
The definition of a hasher is ‘a drinker with a running problem’. Anyway look it up, they are everywhere.
Back to the story. I was talking to a mate at HHH the other night and he asked me what my next Woodworking purchase is to be (San Miquel is a Cabinet Maker)(did I mention that when you join HHH they give you a Hash Name). Anyway I told San Miquel I was in the market for some dust extraction and he said he had a Festo (now known as Festool) Dust Vac that has been sitting in his workshop for 4-5 years not working.
So a quick trip to the workshop, another trip to my mum’s partner who is a electrician, and yet another trip to the local woodworking tool shop for a hose and ‘Wa La’ (not sure if that is how it is spelt). A photo speaks a thousand words.
-- I would rather have the most memories, than the most money.
