I've taken up croquet
« on: March 31, 2021, 07:22:29 pm »
I've taken up croquet, I thought steam engines were addictive, they have NOTHING on croquet!

I need to buy a heap of croquet gear to be really competitive (there's a lot of young croqueters and I need to beat them) so
all of my steam and H&m engines and all accessories (everything) will be getting listed very shortly, heaps of bargains and I'll pay all postage costs.

Ah  croquet... Nothing like a little short croquet mallet in those big beefy paws of yours Jim ,and what a fine time to start on this 1st day of April (in Australia) if you pay me to take some of your engines....I "may" consider it 😏

Bruce I have two Jensen Model #51's (extra extra gold plated deluxe) that I was going to throw out as I didn't think anyone would be interested  ;D

Do those 51's have rivetted boilers?  If Bruce gets the gold, can I have the rivet's? I'm collecting rivet's now.
Wait a minute, did you say croquet?  I thought you said you were taking up CROCHET.
