Welcome to the forum. I was in the north east over the last few days retrieving my glider; could have dropped in for a chat.

Thanks for the warm welcome guys.
I'm near hartlepool but other side of the A19
I've got a warco gearhead lathe and mill so prett
y well kitted out and I've got access to bigger gear at work if I need it.
I'm looking forward to getting started on the traction engine ive got a few othe projects to finish first. Looking at part built options at the moment the main bit I'm planning on "Subbing out" it the boilder even tho I work at the place that produces the pipe that the boiler will probably be made from.. but I think easiest way to get a certificate is to go to a specialist
Let me know if anyone dissagrees with the above I'm in no rush so anything's possible.
