Although not modelling at present I'm still around I'm converting my Taig/Peatol lathe to  fixed power feed of the main carriage and the hand held feed for the top slide as my hand will no longer grip small handles without cramping I've taken a bunch of pic's.
I'll post when finished as too many changes required after I thought it was finished.

you don't need to be modelling to be taking part, my friend.......just there in spirit...........is it arthritis setting in..............was all for giving it up myself after I finished this ferry but someone cunningly dumped a nice plug for a lifeboat I have always wanted to build on my doorstep...........so selling off all my tools and buying an old BSA has come to a halt again, lol No No

Hi matey..........you might want to think again on that one after reading this artiicle on modelboatmayhem as apparently all it is is some plans and some lumps of wood..............I reckon you could scratch build one yourself far better.
