« Part 35: Aldi Step drill sets Part 36 of Tool Tip series no next part

well I got the ride on purring so wondering what to do next I snooped about in his shed and unpacked a few more boxes.

In one I found this deceptive looking box.

Being a bit of a curious person (read as a sticky beak) decided to open it.

To my surprise there were a set of planes in there that any pilot would kill for.

I might add, and not just ordinary planes, ones of all shapes and sizes.

There were ones for any thing you could possibly imagine doing.

All sitting quietly awaiting the master to return.

So I tucked them all back in, wiped my eyes, closed the lid and put them back.

Taking care to ensure I didn’t drop my wallet in the shed.

P.S The lady wasn’t forgotten either I found a nice Filipino broom in there too, its now sitting on your bed.

Brilliant Blog Rob.
That’s gold mate and you’ve made me look forward to leaving Hong Kong and getting home to the farm to crack on with some woodwork even more.

And for those that didn’t pick it up at the start of the bLog, Rob got our Ride-on Mower purring again, fully serviced with new blades belts and pullies on the 48-inch mower deck, well done as usual. I could not want more from my Right-hand man.

Cheers

Well Pottz , I wish I could make it a little more interesting than what it is but I will just tell the truth.

A friend of mine who lives down the road from my old house here in Hong Kong gave them to me.
He is an American actually, a Countryman of yours. He is a corporate Jet Pilot here in Hong Kong. (sounds like a great job I know)
Anyway apparently the story goes that he was over the border in China shopping and came across this small plane set, he had good intentions in taking up woodwork but never did. He called me and asked if I would like them because they taking up space at his, (typical hong kong, a fight for space)

So there is the story of the small Plane set, given to the Man who drives a big Plane (Boeing 777) by a Man that drives a Small but fast and powerful Plane. (Gulfstream G500).

The truth of the matter is he was probably over the border in China chasing Skirt and ended up buying tools. A typical story.

Cheers
Anth
