« Part 34: Featured stand at Brisbane. Part 35 of Going to local shows. series Part 36: Sydney next month.. »

Well, the Torque went to the Brisbane Timber and Working With Wood show last weekend.. as part of the Gregory Machinery/Jet Australia stand…

It was wonderful to be in such company… although the space provided was only just bigger than the Torque itself…

It is amazing how you can adapt to the space allocated… if it had been bigger we would have filled it… but as it was it was tight fit.

Can you see the Torque..?

How about now?

There it is?

Ah this is more familiar…. notice the 4 inch flex tube coming from the dust guard on the router… hooked up to a Jet Cyclone Dust Collecter… worked like a dream… set up here for a little copy routing… a house sign in Tasmanian Blackwood for friend Geoffry..

Came up a treat… a little cleanup and a sand… wonderful…

Next stop will be Sydney… and yes at this stage I will be there…

I had to look very carefully to spot it in the first pictures.

There seems to be a lot of tools in this show, unlike the others.

Very good, Larry!

I was surprised to see “The Alamo” in a sign in Aussieland! The word really gets around!

That tool looks really cool… Sure has a sturdy table… is that iron? Must weigh a ton or more!

Thank you…
