“(set a status)”
Retired Air Traffic Controller (civil). Lived in Orne, France between 2004 and 2015. No mechanical engineering qualifications but have a life-long interest in cars. Built Fisher Fury spyder kit-car then sold it two years later and bought a Ford GT40 replica. Superb car! Sold that to part-finance house purchase.
Bought a lathe (Asian 9 x 20) clone while in France and have added a Warco VMC mill to replace the Amadeal XJ-12 mill I had previously, now that we have returned to live in the UK.
Additional equipment acquired in the intervening years are a Warco surface grinder, a Perfecto motorised 5" travel shaper and lately (2021) a Shapeoko router table which I won in a competition!
