The Traditional Tools Group inc. of Australia have gone to a digital format for overseas members and have given us permission to re-publish it on our website so our members can access it.
The December issue (#150) can be found here
Brian Read will continue to abstract it for the TATHS Newsletter for the benefit of our members who do not use the net.
Another kindred organisation which has sent us its newsletter. The NHIG is offering a number of specialist courses, seminars and conferences for those interested in traditional ironworking techniques. Have a look at the newsletter for further details.
We have links with several overseas organisations devoted to tools and their preservation. One our our most active links is with the The Hand Tool Preservation Society Of Western Australia and we have a regular dialogue with Arthur Cunniffe, the current editor.
You can explore the THTPSWA website yourselves but since Arthur is kind enough to send us their monthly newsletter we thought it only fitting to promote it on our own site and attach a copy of their July newsletter.
If you want to know more about our links with THTPSWA, Hugh Thompson is the TATHS link man.
