Hello Again!
« on: October 07, 2018, 01:36 PM »
Yes, I'm still here!

For various reasons, until a couple of days ago I hadn't even logged in to the FOG for almost 2 years. Basically I'm not on the tools anymore, and my interest in woodworking/tools has waned since I had to give up my workshop.

I've come back for selfish reasons really, as I'm selling a couple of my lesser-used Festools (I've posted about them in the classifieds) so thought I should pop my head in here & say hi. Those UK members that missed out on the FOGtainer project may be interested (can't believe that was 8 years ago now!)

Good to see quite a lot of names I recognise are still here...

Good to hear from you again. I was honestly thinking about you the other day and wondering how you were.

But not enough info. What are you doing these days?

Thanks.

Good to hear you’re still around.  I have missed your contributions to this forum.  I hope you’re keeping well.

Good to hear from you!  Sorry for everything you’ve had to endure.  I actually came across some images earlier today on my computer and thought of you before I saw your post.

Thanks all!

Not a lot to report, honestly. Still doing the odd bit of woodwork every now and again. My main project at the moment is converting my old work van into a camper, but that's slow going simply because I'm skint & can't afford the materials (hence selling the tools!). It seems to be the case that if something is for a camper, the price immediately triples!

Other than that, still plodding along through life, as one does. We've had an amazing summer here in the UK, but we're rapidly heading into winter now. Roll on next spring, and hopefully I'll be getting out & about a bit more once the camper is done.
