I am a retired Engineer based in South Worcestershire. In my career I worked for Allen Gears, Dowty Mining Equipment - both Hydraulics and Electronics and Alibert Buckhorn racking division amongst others.
I'm currently making an area in my garage into a small workshop, I've just replaced the window and currently insulating the roof and walls and improving the lighting so I can spend more time in there in the winter.
I have an Axminster SX4 mill, and expect to take delivery of a Warco GH1322 lathe shortly having just sold my Myford S7, Other minor equipment is a 12 tonne press, a bench top pillar drill, a Portamig MIG and a washtank.
I had started to rebuild a Rover V8 engine but with the uncertainty about fossil fuels that has been put on the back boiler. I hope to start on a Hit and Miss engine, such as the Redwing, when the lathe is commissioned.
