Wow I love old handtools, I think I haven't got eunogh of them, although I've probably got too many tools! That drill is a wonderful tool. Imagine a time when people took pride and the time to make implements like that. Puts our modern stuff to shame really, even if they are more efficient . I have been thinking for some time to make myself an old fashion tool box containing only old hand tools. I often see them in antique shop and think it's a shame they don't get used any more.Right, I am off to look at the museum. Thanks for pointing it out.


Hi Paul, Thanks for all you have done with Minnesota Waters 3.0. I saw that MN waters iudnvidial memberships are due on Jan 1st now. However what about Lake Associations and the website host fees. Our Lake association only meets 2-3 times a year, therefore the last meeting is coming up on Labor Day weekend. As treasurer I need to report expenses, can you give my group some insight on what our fees will be before then? Ann Bardwell-Ross
