Empty beer bottles,

But every time my collection gets started, the OH puts them out for recycling, so I have to start over again.

I collect Coleport figurines, must have about 50 of them, it started when I inherited my mothers collection, but tbh, Im a bit tired of them now as they look quite dated with a modern decor, and have not bought anymore for a few years :)

Bill collects Pre-1945 coins, and we regularly visit a handful of specialist shops around the UK where he gets lost like a kid in a sweetshop, whilst I go off and do some girlie retail therapy of my own :naughty:

He also has a good selection of old woodworking tools, after working in the trade for over 50 years, some of them, including severeal sets of different types of planes, go back as far as the 1800s, and I bet you and him would get along just fine Alan, he loves to talk about his past career and show people, most who are only familiar with the likes of a 'Black and Decker' how these lovely old things work :lol:

Julz :wave

Hello Julz,

Please give Bill my regards and ask him what he thinks of the planes in the picture, and tell him they are used on the various projects I take on and not just unused collector items.

Regards

Alan

I have never seen such a large collection of planes, must be a record? :P

I was always told to lay them on their side though

You have probably missed the foam backed carpet they're sitting on, the blades are well protected. :grin:
