Thank you for registering me.
I'm a lifelong amateur wood and metal worker who loves to improve things (and occasionally does).

Welcome to the madhouse ega!

Hi ega, see your building a Quorn....  I am extruding mine, otherwise nick named the Corn....  You will fit right in looking at that ball handle.   :poke:

Ahh .......  :dremel:

now I understand how Joules is going to make some of the parts for his "Corn" grinder - EGA will produce spines/armatures with appropriate knurling and then Joules will extrude cladding on his 3D printer!

Let me get the lambing out of the way and we'll organise a bean feast, so probably towards the end of May. Remind me to start another specific thread to get numbers interested - nag me if I forget.

They'll be a bit young at only 4 weeks  :bugeye:

But I'm sure well find some rare breed sausages & burgers and we may even have a few Ba-Ba burgers - two guesses what they are  :lol:

Shall you have a four-jaw competition like Stan's Bar-Z Bash?

I'm a lifelong general meddler. and woodworker; with an interest in the metalwork side of  pottering. Mostly metalworking is confined to making telescopes, (Also and grinding Newtonian mirrors.) The one I finished years ago is past it now, and is just about good enough to use as a shaving mirror. I like repairing stuff, and modifying, and only occasionally do I have an accident, and get something right! I am your perpetual pessimist. (that's a requirement as I support Aston Villa!) So, I would prefer to have happy surprises, when things turn up trumps.
I play Jazz guitar and paint in oils and watercolour and any spare time I get goes into writing fiction; for my own amusement.

Perusing the projects here, I am somewhat bewildered by the ingenuity, and the guile of members. I also like the occasional note of humour that creeps in.

I tried to start a new topic for this, but I must have my old specs on, 'cos I can't find a link to do that!  :beer:
