It was good to see Tom Balchin on the (our) site again. He really is someone special as is his collection of any old iron, his place must look like Steptoes yard and i am so jealous of all his lovely weights, not to lift mind you, just to lust over , the collection has to be the best ever. Be good if Tom put some more photos of his treasures on our site, cheers mate, David Gentle

Toms collection is definitely one of the best in the world. Amazing stuff.

It's a hobby of very few passionate people,and Tom is one of them. (As is Kim Wood, Reuben Weaver (RIP), Al Lueng, etc).

Tom's stuff is so rare and unique, it sets him apart for sure...
