Following a Facebook post, a long- time friend of Rick was in touch to donate his late Dad`s tools to a good cause (Tools for Self- Reliance). They had lain in his shed for several years but Peter (in Ascot), and his brother spent a weekend sorting and via eldest son Luke Nation in Bracknell, they finally came to me last Sunday. I also spent a happy two hours sorting and Monday morning, our friendly contact from KSM, Dick Mather, collected and delivered them to the workshop in Warmley on Tuesday.
They will be refurbished and added to sets or made up into kits, probably bound for Kenya and Mozambique. There were some super items, brand new valve spring compressors and a nearly new torque wrench, which will be like gold to a budding Motor Mechanic in Africa. Also rebate planes and other quality carpentry tools as well as tap and die kits and other engineering tools. May have to buy another garage! Thanks to our past and future donors of tools.
