We had a typically active day last Friday with several jobs on the go. Bunny and Shep were busy making replica guns for next year’s “Capture of the Clarke Gang” re-enactment.
These police issue guns were 1864 “Calisher and Terry” carbines, single shot, breech loading.
The boys are attempting to make the carbine as close to the original design as possible.
In all nine of these guns are being made under Shep’s supervision and they’ll be used by the supporting mounted police.
Of course we are all looking forward to this occasion even though it’s not on till the 30th April next year.
Barry, Barry and David were busy mastering dovetail joints on our boxing machine.
Jim is half way through construction of an impressive coffee table.
Gordon and Barry’s garden furniture refurbishment is coming along nicely.
We’d like to wish Jan and Jean (partners to Barry Broadbent and Tubby Cargill) a speedy recovery from their recent illnesses.
I imagine they had the freezer full with cooked tucker as both the boys have trouble boiling water.
Don and team were putting the finishing touches to the posts from the front of the Uniting Church, which were in desperate need of repair.
And with all that on we still had time for a mag and a nice morning tea. Dick is proving to be a master chef with his cake making prowess.
We meet every Friday from 9:30. Enquiries to Kevin on 0450961039
