Location: Near the trees and fields on a hill near the sea not far from beaches, harbours and castles on the Welsh coastline in the British Isles in the U.K. You know, that place next to Europe?.

In my hobby I am fortunate to have a few interesting gadgets to help me build things. I could do with more but I have not been up to much recently. But little tools like this can be useful. :)

It can be assembled in a few ways like in the form of a table jigsaw...

Or a miller (Vertical or horizontal miller. This is in a vertical form).

I have so many tools/gadgets for building things(eg I build doll’s houses which have been used for therapy in those who have trauma), many DIY tools, and various tools for bear making and sewing, as well as cooking(I bake celebration/birthday etc cakes) and have some amazing gadgets for this purpose. Life would be very difficult, without tools.

A Unimat lathe is a nice tool to have around. I have a Sherline lathe and mill.

I also ended up with the all metal version which is much better.
