  • Hi from Eastern Melbourne

    Hi from Eastern Melbourne.
    I found this forum through the Atwood Toolbook on Facebook. A fellow Aussie there pointed me in this direction, so thought I'd better head on over and say g'day.

    I've been a longtime fan of most things made of metal, and have been collecting Atwood creations sporadically for the past few years. I've just started banging out some pieces myself as a hobby and am keen to find out more about crafting metal objects.

    I'd love to find out if there's any maker sheds in Melbourne where you can get your hands on some power tools that are too expensive to buy for a hobby (I'm looking at you, Radius Master)

    Welcome to the forum.

    I am sure you will find all the help you need from the very talented crew we have in the forum.

    Enjoy your journey!

                  Welcome to the forum neighbour!

                  We have some of the best makers in the country, however I haven't seen any "hammer ins" or workshop days in Vic for a while. Which only means - about bloody time we did!
                  You might have to drive a bit though, last one we had was at the Parker's (which is Ballarat area). I know Neville was also talking about hosting an event in the future (I've never seen a better equipped workshop in my life!) - but he's down in Latrobe Valley.

                  Still, you never know where/when the next event will be or you could ask a maker, but usually there are space and time constraints that make this impossible without some organising.

                    I'd love to get onboard with some workshops in VIC. I don't have the skills or tools to host anything like that myself, but would like to help if there's anything I could to to organise something.

                      Kai H, Atwood fan. Don't suppose you're a Mac genius too?

                        Don't you know it, Simon
                        You got any? I've started down the long and slippery slope of making my own pocket tools

                          Always admired from afar, never purchased. Anything a single piece tool can do I've already got covered by EDC items anyway.

                            Peter Atwood's items are works of art. The craftsmanship on them is simply outstanding.
                            Two of my favourite possessions of all time are a pair of his stainless steel shot glasses - turned from a single piece of stainless bar stock and great for vodka or whisky!

                              They sound good for chilling, before filling with Sullivan's Cove

                              I'm familiar with Atwood tools, or at least I'm familiar with their pictures on the internet
