Hi Andy,

Do you have a specific tool you prefer to do the shoulders? Im struggling to keep the shoulders even and was wondering if you had any tips?

Hi Andy,

we've had the 400 talisman, the 400 gn legends & the 1000 newbery. Will Saf be joining in?

What do you consider to be the best bat you have made, why, and who was it for?

If a cricket bat made 15 years ago had been kept in a temperature and moisture controlled environment, unused, would it perform as well as one made exactly the same way, yesterday (assuming that the willow is of the same quality)?

No, because a bat made 15 years ago would have been made on a wednesday (check for yourself), but a bat made yesterday would be an infamous sunday bat. It has been proven scientifically that a bat made on a sunday will never be as good as bats made during week days. Except tuesdays of course. We don't speak of tuesdays.

Our ex-first team captain, who effectively got me started.... I'd make bats for him until my hands cramp up...... 2lb 12oz made it, scored 12, 98, 145 then 135 with it in 2007 ------- I was very happy :D

For the sake of argument, Tim Keeley made it 15 years ago and also yesterday, and they are both Mjolnirs.

I'd say 15 years ago as John Newbery was still fresh in the memory
