Workshop wisdom from poroldchap

Postby pennymachines » Sat Jun 04, 2016 7:51 pm

I recently discovered this wonderful gentleman on YouTube. He shares a lifetime's accumulated old school wisdom, and an uncommon amount of common sense, with inimitable style. I'm gradually working my way through his videos and picking up lots of useful tips on the way.

What an excellent chap. Very 'old school' and a delight to observe. I particularly enjoyed the lesson in catching and filleting a sea bass. Just like my Dad taught me nearly 50 years ago. Shame I was not so good at learning how to catch 'em, though. xX><Xx

He's even invented a simple tool to turn £10 notes into £5 notes! What a time saver! I've been doing this the hard way for years. !DOH!
