Hello, from the West of England
« on: March 17, 2019, 05:01:33 PM »
I registered about two years ago and then decided to avoid all forums. I am slowly becoming less insular so I am introducing myself.
I am a retired mechanical engineer with a small workshop containing a Myford lathe and Wabeco milling machine. My main interests are British motorcycles and small model engines. I am currently finishing a Boulton & Watt bellcrank engine (Anthony Mount's design) and am making an EDM machine.

Hello AVTUR, welcome to the forum from another West Country resident- north of Bristol to be precise. Where are you living?

At Roger's request I have tried attaching a few photographs which, I hope, are self-explanatory.

Sorry. The attaching of the photographs did not really work. The remaining should now be attached.
