    I've never found anything before either so I grabbed them quickly! I look for things like tootal scarves but never spot one. They always say go to charity shops where the rich live tho eh! Harrogate must be teeming with hand me down Lobbs, must drive up there. Hope you nab your pair! :)

    Quick shot of new to me cheapest ever pair of gy welt clogs, I cut the lawn wearing them, swept out the shed and the dirt just wiped right off :)

    on another note and back on topic, I had a go at the toes of the Chesters today. I must stop this ...

    Muddy, you certainly know a thing or two about polishing shoes! Those are wonderful! Yours, Munky. [​IMG]

    Thanks Munky, only picked this up over the last few months thru practice and trial and error but now I understand what's happening while I look at the wax going on and what to do to react to it and make it glaze properly. I wasn't using enough wax previously and way too little water. Wax on over a little water and then quite a lot of water with a very little wax and a light fast action does the trick. Once you see the grain filled you've cracked it. Then you can just sit there zen like and build up depth until it looks like glass. It's too much really but while I'm getting the hang of it I'll polish the hell out of of them :)

    I think I might just give this a try! Sincerely, Munky
