Hello all, I know this is a bit of a long shot, but does anyone know whats happened to David Wilks , a machinist from Sheffield. He used to do a lot of videos on U tube about trepanning , on hard steels like Inconel . Its been many months since his last video and am getting concerned, probably like a lot of people that something has happened to him !.

Do hope hes OK . Many thanks.

His website is now defunct, but Archive.org took a snapshot last Jan.

Facebook page hasn't been updated for ages, but still listed as active company director at Companies House

Not obviously in the phone book, but his Youtube channel says he has a house to let in Thailand.

Hope he's OK

I believe he sold his shop to another company. He was employed by them for a while. That is from memory. I would have to reciew his later videos to be sure.
