Men's shed cleans out

THE Murwillumbah Men's had its first garage sale on the weekend and it was a raging success.
"We raised nearly $1000," said co-ordinator Phil Davison.

"We are very pleased with the results."

"Thanks to everyone who gave their time on Sunday and to those who came."

The Shed is also having a blacksmithing day this coming Sunday.

Starting at 9 am the activities are at 339 Hopkins Creek Road, Chillingham .

Members will literally "get hammered" since there will be six forges/anvils set up of varying designs.

"Participants will rotate around these as some are better and hotter than others," Mr Davision said.

Basic instruction includes getting fired up, hammering techniques, bending and shaping and quenching.

Learning to make simple tools members will then go on to do a charcoal burn.

There are even some fashion tips for those attending on the day.

"Long cotton pants and long sleeve shirts and sturdy boots are the order of the day," Mr Davision said.

"There will be a number of leather welding gloves and aprons.

"But if members have their own, they should bring them.

"Safety glasses and ear protection are essential, as there will be a very loud heavy metal festival," Mr Davison joked.
