Glad you’re back Alistair. Those project pics are fantastic. Certainly gives me a lot of ideas. Thank you.
Now those shop pictures are enough to make us all jealous! But I would never be able to eat again cause I would have spent all the grocery money on them…... well I could stand to loose a few a pounds though ;)

Thanks Alistair,

You commented before about your metal work training and shop, but I never saw the shop in this detail. So glad to see you back, hope you are in the shop soon.

Today I had a very trivial, thank goodness, accident myself. The screws on one of my 20 year old project tables gave way, and fortunately nothing was significantly damaged. I now realize that two of the screws had worked loose over the years. My glasses were on the table, and the nylon filament holding the lenses in was broken. The fish line on my old reel was exactly the right size and I repaired the glasses, with my magnifying light, old fish line, and tools at hand. Wish you were as easily repaired.

Thank goodness you are back…........we have all really worried about you.

Have a great day, things are looking up…............

Jim
