My first 'win' on TC in 19 years so very happy. Ok not first but I won gold so I am very happy. Im surprised this wasn't snapped up by the other 3 winners as these are one offs for me. Im not sure of the whole story but I believe that these were created when the TC community scorcher was done many years ago. Im sure others may know more. Im unsure how many of these there are but I believe its not many. I believe a set was given with the community scorcher/Rad and Netsmith (These are the ones given to Netsmith) I took me ages to find a frame and then mounted them using 'invisible thread' Very happy with these and if I never win another comp I know I have these. They wont be going anywhere.. oh and as a side note, little ol standard box wrench is looking on in awe at its shiny mates !!! Thank you for looking and thanks to all those that voted, the comp entry for me was about Rad (RIP mate) so quite fitting to win these.

Thank you, and I didn't know what to do with nut hence why just let it sit in the bottom.

Nice one, a very special set indeed. In some ways, it represents a real 'trophy' better than any other prize! Very well displayed, although maybe I would cast that lone nut up above with the other goldies? Well done.

@Ferruz that's a great idea. I just couldn't place it anywhere originally but wanted to include it as its part of the set. Thanks everyone for the kind comments.

Epic. You can almost feel the envy of the comon box wrench looking at all that bling. Very nice display and I think, in a modern art kinda way the nut is symbolic and should stay 'on the loose'

Very nice. Much better than being hidden in a draw somewhere. Makes me want to gold anodise all my spare T wrenches
