    Howdy Mick.

    Are you still active with metal? Welding & Fabrication? Machining?



    I am setting up a large man cave (or smallish factory) at Revesby

    At the moment, just making a mess


    Have done a few tiny machining jobs for factory neighbours or random walk-ins, but mainly repairing machines given to me, acquiring tools, trying to store and organise.


    My father was a patternmaker, so I played with a lathe and some fabrication as a kid.
    I was more into electrical and computer, but am learning a lot more about machining now.
