Hi Tony,

The wake went fine. A good mix of friends attended from his motor bike racing days, people from various forums including some members of this forum including Neil Wyatt and Howard Lewis, through to people he did various sub-contract work for, along with various family and friends in general. It was a good evening, and a good number of stories were shared over a few drinks and a good spread of food, laid on by the family.

It was good evening, and good to re-meet several folks and a few new faces who all knew John.

I'll have a Famous Grouse with him - but never before 5 o'clock. Didn't know the chap well, but he helped me install my lathe (at minimal cost) as well as helping with a lot of other things. 'We'll make a fitter of you yet Robin' he said when I fell on my arse trying to lever the machine round a corner with the rusty 6 foot crowbar he produced from his van. He was a good man, and still when I try to work something out I often find myself asking 'what would John have said?' His legacy will live on. A champion of pragmatic answers.

John was in my thoughts last week when I drove to Long Eaton.

Hi, I thought of John last week when I was first used a solid carbide slot dill that he had sharpened for me the last time he was doing it for free at Doncaster MEX. Gave him a posthumous thanks for doing a good job of it.

Regards Nick.

I think of him every time I read back issues of ME I got from him and when turning the Y-axis handle on the Marlow.
