Chester Open Day

I thought I'd show this to you chaps in the UK you may be interested as this is a good chance to pick up some cut priced tooling.



Have fun

Wrong Right link Stew,  :thumbup: :thumbup:

I got the leaflet, at least delivery wouldn't be an issue.....just be careful about any promises for any back-orders if they run out on the day  :lol:

Hi Stew,

If you do go, make it early. They come from miles away, last time we went, we turned up about 15 mins before opening time and had to park about 1/4 mile away, and you couldn't move inside, it's only a small place. Full of pokers and prodders and um and ah'ers.

Hehe.... It's only a few miles from me, bout 10 min's max to get there..... Not sure if I'll make the effort  :scratch: :)


I went there the year I got my lathe..... Late on the second day, there were still about 100 funny looking blokes in there nudging their way to the front to get a look in.... Thinking about it ,I was one of them!  :lol: 

I got my mill vise and some small tooling..... Still cost me, but was definitely cheaper than on the website!

I might be up that way next week, is it worth making a detour?
If it ain't broke, i'll fix it until it is.

Hi 28ten

If you're in the market for some machinery and kit its well worth  it they quite often have some good bargans, you'll also get a chance to eye ball there machinery, you never know you might fall in love with a lathe or a mill.

Have fun
