My first office was in Rotherham, then we moved to Worksop, then I moved to the US.Dave, I actually live in Rotherham, 2 mins from meadowhall. I advise you not to visit sheffield now! They keep changing the traffic flow and if you don't actually live there you probably end up in a bus lane or a one way street the wrong way! Then the fines start coming! Doh!
I am jealous of all the people on the opposite side of the pond who have small workshops too! Just reading the "show us your shop" thread and what you call small over there is what I would call heaven!!!!
My workshop is my 16 x 6 garden shed and with all the tools I have collected over the years I can't even get them all out at once. May have to put in for a council exchange. Wonder if they do overseas exchanges? LOL
I do not miss the UK and especially Yorkshire weather. The older brother's wife lets me know about the weather like snow the other week.Hi Dave,
Where were you based in rotherham then?
I was born in masborough and now live in kimberworth park.
I had a quick look at the tool places you showed and the only thing is that they look like the quality of tools that I can only dream of.
Strange though that I have never heard of them and someone 3000 miles away points them out. Maybe they don't advertise much?
BTW I absolutely hate the way that europe dictates what we can and can't have/get. I can't buy a saw that will take a dado cutter here, seems that someone in belgium has deemed them unsafe to use! So is a car if you are not sensible but they don't ban them!
I bet you don't miss the weather here too? Today we are enjoying one of only 3 days so far this summer that we can sit outside! But I'm sure it will be back to normal tomorrow.
