Getting tooled up - literally
My first haul, planes, F clamps, a drill, spare plane blades.
All together this bundle weighs 16 kg. with a few bits of linen I can get them into a suitcase and use one of my 23kg Air Kenya baggage allowances. I guess I'll just have to travel light - my glittery thongs and hairdryer (plus hot brush), several different types of foundation and my Airfix Spitfire model kit for spare evenings will just have to be left off the packing list this time.
There is a serious side to this of course, just go look in your garage. Now, go do it, don't give me any of your excuses, now is all we have. Find a rusty screwdriver an old multimeter or hammer and get in touch with Tool Aid or Tools for Self Reliance if you're in the UK. If you're international, just google 'refurbished tools' for Africa and I'm sure you'll find something similar. It really is a whole lot better than throwing money their way.
