Latest Offerings

March suddenly seems very very close and I’m concerned that the progress with my workshop clearout and decluttering may not reach the stage at which I am hoping for by then… To give you all a bit of an update though, I thought I’d share a few previously-unmentioned items that I, as of last week, decided I am going to add to the ever-growing ‘For Sale’ list.

If you’d like a price on something, please find a way to contact me, whether that’s by leaving a comment here, by e-mailing me directly or through social media.

Bye-Bye Lathe

I wasn’t intending to have anything other than a lie-in on Saturday morning but when someone was willing to pay for and collect my lathe at 9am, I knew I had to be there on-time. Early, in fact!

It happened so fast that I didn’t even take the time to capture a final photo (with the disc sander removed from the equation). So, you’ll have to accept the current setup as above; with a pair of sawhorses providing a place of rest for the old Hegner.

First Lot to Go

It may be cold outside and there may still be snow on the ground, with the threat of more to follow later in the week but, I still made it out to the workshop today! Only to arrange some hand and portable power tools that I no longer ‘need’ and can sell… Still, it was nice to get out there briefly. Even though my work gloves felt like sheets of ice, as I picked them up from my workbench.

ALL FOR SALE!

This is my first ‘wave’ in the process of decluttering my workshop, freeing up some space and, of course, preparing for the inevitable. Read on below, and you’ll see what I’m selling and why I no longer need it.

Spring Clear Out?

There is one resolution that I made several weeks after the arrival of the new year; when I first returned to my workshop in 2012 and realised that I really don’t have sufficient space to work in… So, although this is something that I’m sure I investigate once every six-months or so, I really need to look carefully at the machinery and power tools I currently have at my disposal… Which ones do I really need? Could I manage sufficiently without one of those? One thing I’m very short on is floor space – and that, to me, is more important than any tool that you can buy.

If you can’t move comfortably within your space then, you’re putting yourself at risk, each and every day. When you’re tackling a larger job (something too tall or wide to stand on the bench), where will you be able to work on it?

So, I’m going to look closely at some of the machines that I would consider selling, starting with my Axminster AW106PT planer/thicknesser
