Tool Autopsy Episode.5
In my ongoing “hobby” podcast, Bricolage Podcast, I bring you episode number 5 which is (the first?) Tool Autopsy episode with Paul Beech (again).
The basic premiss of this new podcast flavour or segment or… something, is that me and Paul (and maybe other people in the future) go, with a pocket of loose change, to a flea-market (or boot sale or whatever) and buy a few tools. We then do no research and using only our own vague knowledge and intuition we talk about them.
The picture above (is the best picture I have) of the tools we got (don’t worry there are more not so good ones later). I suppose this is a sub project of @toolotheday
