March 2010

I've just completed a move of home and workshop to a town near the airfield.  After 30 years of tinkering on many projects, and a hoarding nature, it was an enormous job.....

I used to have to drive nearly an hour to the airfield, and did that about 1500 times.....  It's a pleasant drive, but a tedious waste of time, especially when I would forget to bring a tool that I needed that day.....  Now I'll have much more time for tinkering and experimenting.

Cleaning out behind the workshop resulted in 200kg (440 lbs) of off-cuts of aluminium from many aircraft building/modifying/repairing projects, including several sets of slats from 701 and Savannah aircraft, all gone for recycling.....   That's the result of a lot of tinkering.....

Looking forward to a fresh start in a new workshop.
