tour of men's sheds november 2013

On 15 November I headed south from Auckland in my campervan to spend a month visiting as many Men's Sheds as I can in the middle and lower North Island before Xmas.
I will make a brief video of each Shed, and post it to my Men's Shed youtube channel for members and their families to share.
First stops were Hamilton and Te Awamutu.

lumbecks made on the milling machine

Geoff and Norm have been hard at work at the new milling machine making four different-sized lumbeck blocks for a local bookbinder. Lumbeck blocks are used to set the curve in the spine of a hard-bound book.
