    Don't miss this great opportunity to meet up with like-minded tool enthusiasts

    If you need any more details or information please message me, especially if you are wanting to buy a particular tool.
    I will circulate any 'needs' to all the dealers, since their stalls will only have so much stock for the day - it means they will  have the chance to dig out that 'elusive' tool that you're looking for

    Look forward to meeting up with old friends and customers, and making many new ones!
    Regards to all, Robert
