Hi All

I've been popping into this forum occasionally for the past few years and thought I'd join to see if anyone can help with my current problem...and perhaps help someone else in turn!

I live in Chesterfield, Derbyshire and started my working life in a fabrication workshop, making ornamental lighting and other fittings for the pub/restaurant trade. I work in a totally different environment now but have always enjoyed metalworking and working on my cars.

The current major project is a full and final refurb of my garage, in preparation for early retirement in a few years - I intend to spend a lot of time in there so it needs to be fit for purpose.

I have a green metric Boxford lathe, a G0704 size milling machine with the long table (with two burnt out motors!!!) and various other bits of machinery and tools to play with...so an hour in the garage can easily turn into a day!

Hello and welcome Wrinx. I'm not too far from you near Mansfield. I also have a Boxford albeit an Imperial one, along with a vertical and horizontal mill.

What are you intending to make with your machinery once it's all working properly?

They're for general use and messing about really, I'm not a model maker but if a job can be done better with one of the machines I'm there! Basically, I like to keep my hand in with a bit of metalwork, fabrication, welding and maintenance.
