    These nails, made from miscellaneous discarded utensils, were very well received at our charity furniture shop this evening, which had its official opening by the Worshipful Mayoress of Reading.

    I only took a single picture, which isnít very good. Apologies. More to follow next time Iím there.

    So what we have here are made from
    3 square files (these have been annealed)
    Chisels
    Chuck keys
    Cutlery
    More chisels

    In some cases, I have drawn out the tang to make a taper, but even so, it does not take long. A number sold on the first day.
