Flooded workshops

We should be experiencing finer weather now but as we have recently seen, the rain keeps coming with some disastrous effects. I had water come into my workshop the other week. The rain was at such an angle and direction that it drove under the doors. There was a lot to get rid of and I am somewhat perplexed as to how to prevent this from happening again. It has only happened once before in 12 years and there was only a small amount the time before, but this time was another matter. Thankfully everything that was on the floor, apart from my fishing gear, is in boxes or on stands so no major damage occurred. I will let you know how I solve it.

I was demonstrating in Brighton last weekend at the PR Industrial Tools show held at the Amex Stadium. Julian Roston – owner of PR Indsutrial – wanted to set up a tool show in the Brighton area because there was a distinct lack of such events. Whilst the frist was aimed at the trade users, Julian has stated that he wants to build on what has happened next year and introduce more ‘woody’ aspects to create broader appeal and have more for people to see. I wish Julian well and form what I saw at the show I think it is a cracking venue and event and am sure that he will be able to bring about what he wants to do.

I am off now as I have a tight dealing to finish off this issue of Woodturning, so will catch up with you all again next week. Have a great weekend. I was going to try and go fishing, but the weather looks bad again.
