Hi everyone,

My name is Michael and I'm new to the forum and really I'm new to model engineering but just joined as I've wanted to join to find out more.

Great to meet you all and willing to learn off everyone on here!

Hello Michael. Welcome. I hope the venture into this hobby is a long & fruitful one. Lots to learn & no better place to come than here. The forum has a vast knowledge base ready to share.

If you want to choose machines for the workshop, or help with a project or tooling then ask away. You will get a mixture of replies , but most are answers from seasoned model engineers.

Welcome Michael.

You are starting on a learning curve into a hobby which will provide huge amounts of interest and information, and enable you to do things which many would consider to be impossible.

As time passes and you gain experience, and confidence, you find yourself doing and making all manner of things.

Even special gadgets that no one else has thought of!

(My wife has a nut cracker that is built like the proverbial brick mausoleum, but no nut has yet withstood it! ).

You might even get the reputation of the neighbourhood "Mr Fixit" because of this.

"They don't make spares for them no more sir" But someone will know a"Man who can", and possibly better than the original.

Learn to walk before running and you will avoid a lot of disappointments.

Model Engineers have produced some fantastic work in all sorts of ways.

But remember that the man who never made a mistake, never made anything.

Good Luck!
