    Great stuff. Thanks for that. I will do as you say on the old oil stone and see.

    I went to the link you sent. Wonderful information. Got quite lost in it. Time just went!

    Cheers.

    The WoA stones are a very fine abrasive stone which puts a very fine finish on edges etc. My round one snapped when I dropped it.I Araldited it together which lasted years but it got snapped again and I mislaid a half. Must get a new one.---https://www.google.co.uk/search?q=water+of+ayr+stone&oq=Wate...
    BTW give the flat stones a parrafin/ meths was now and then.
    See this lot and good luck๐Ÿ‘

    Some time ago did buy on of those extending rods with light and magnet. it was so good that I had to buy another one due to the fact my son went off with it!

    Water of Ayr stone I am not familiar with. I just have a flat oil stone in a box to which I occasionally and some 3in1.

    Certainly going to get the apron sorted out.

    Cheers.

    Funny I usually mention the apron trick and a doggy on a
    lead????? That's a magnet on a string. I use speaker magnet with the isert. I trap the string in the hole with the insert. Dragged around the floor will pick up any ferrous stuff. Another is a telescopic rod with a magnet incorporating a light for nooks and crannies Where springs or spring loaded stuff fly to. The Apron you can buy or make with eyelets on the hem hooked over little hooks like those used on curtain wire or tiny cup hooks.Screwed under edge of bench. A round Water of Ayr stone (cylinder) is very handy too. Give the stones a clean now and then in detergent rubbed in by hand or meths/paraffin mix but use wet. Good luck.๐Ÿ‘

    Oh thanks for that. I would never have thought of it and it is just what I need (the apron).

    I will work on how to rig one up.

    Great advice, especially about the water of Ayr stone. I have one too. I also wear a Jewellers' apron attached to the bench as I can no longer spend hours on hands and knees looking for dropped items.

    Going back to the warning about the knives and foot injury. A safe way to keep knives handy around the building board .Have a block of expanded polystyrene or Oasis Or similar .When not in the hand stick the knife into the block. To sharpen blades use a "Water of Ayr Stone ". I find nothing better . John O/T๐Ÿ‘
