Hi all first time posting from sunny Lincolnshire
« on: May 21, 2016, 11:44:51 AM »
Hi all, just a brief introduction, I've been in the engineer sector for getting on 10 years, the last 3 of which have been self employed, I've a little machine shop set up now where I'm scraping a living together. So far consists of Mitchell-Woodhouse junior  70, a Herbert number 4 senior capstan, a Harrison vertical mill, a Norton surface grinder, a Van Norman 777 and a few other bits and bobs to go along with them :)

I've picked up one or two things here scrolling through threads which have been most useful/ needed sometimes and thought it was about time i made an appearance.

So yea, hi all

Let us all know what your doing and what your interests are. As you'll already have discovered there's a lot going on in the forum to lead you astray  :lol:

As a newcomer to metal working I have a great respect for those who do this professionally.
