August 15, 2020

Two submissions today for your viewing pleasure.
1. Mel Genge’s favourite hockey team finally has Lord Stanley’s Cup.
2. Earl Eidem has a contact with a lathe for sale.


Mel has been a loyal supporter of the Toronto Maple Leafs for many years and has a glass of bubbly every time they win the cup. So far he has very little bubbly in his system. Other members of his family exercise their right to have a wrong opinion and support other losing teams. This year Mel took fate into his own hands and made the cup for his winning Maple Leafs. Guess we’ll see who he really gets to sent the cup to. It is approximately 6 in. high.


This older lathe is in good condition and is for sale through a contact of Earl Eidem.

If anyone is interested they can call the owner at 306-260-1859.

5” height 
New bearings. 
6”and 3” base plate. 
New live center, never used. 
Odds and sods. 
Has mobile base. 
Price best offer.
