    Default Hello up there! I'm down in Tassie!

    Hi all,

    I'm Tom from southern Tasmania.

    I've been mucking about with metalwork in small bits of knife making, blacksmithing, casting and a bit of welding (poor welds). Have been working with hand tools, a drill press and my belt grinder, plus a little Chinese mini lathe til my container arrived with most of a workshop I bought from a bloke who bought a deceased estate.

    Scored a Sheraton ARM model lathe, an RDM350 Mill and plenty of tooling.

    The organising has begun but it's a long haul!

    I've recently retired so I now have a bit more time to put my grade ten metal work and too much you tube into practice!

    Anyone else in southern Tas?

    Cheers,
    Tom

    Welcome to a TOP FORUM. Nice haul of tools too. I'm sure others from the Apple Isle will drop by and say G'day.
