Hi all, I'm in Lincolshire, the hilly bit, it's not all flat you know.

I'm new to metal working with a lathe so looking to learn everything I can. This seems to be an excellent forum with nice members willing to share their experience and offer sensible advice,so it looks like I'm in the right place. Thanks for having me.

As said elsewhere, try to find a local M E Club for help and advice.

Hopefully, the members will not only provide advice, but show you their workshops and techniques.

Enjoyment beckons you!

Welcome Coggy, from someone over the border in Derbyshire. As you are finding out in another thread, there are lots of helpful people here.

If it's hilly, maybe you are not too far from Oakham. There used to be M E Society in Stamford, (although their website seems to be inaccessible) and there certainly is a thriving one in Melton Mowbray.

Hello All,

Well this is a fortuitous post. I just signed up with the forum to see if there was anyone near me and to introduce my self.

I have just retired and moved to East Lindsey and I am just starting to build my long dreamed of workshop.

My experience is not much more than a handy man with fond memories of the Super 7 at school. I do have a very tired 1912 Drummond flatbed that I started to restore, but that may be a little too far gone.
