Welcome Carlos.
I believe you are the first South African aboard.
Please show us your work!

Looks like a lot going on in there. Is that a sandal on your workbench, next to the coffee cup? Do you repair shoes, too?

Hi Carlos,

It does look like you have a lot going on in your shop. Mine seems to get that way whenever I am involved in a project. Every hand tool I own seems to migrate to the assembly table and I have to sweep them aside to assemble the project. You have a nice collection of hand tools.

Thanks for the post.

Hey Carlos, I wasn’t here when this was first posted. I am glad it came around again so I could visit your shop.
