A very worthy ambition and appropriate place to start Martin.  Welcome to the Madness.
Just get doing and make swarf, you can decide what its going to be later.   :thumbup:

Swarf - who mentioned swarf - where shall I send it  :lol:

Actually at the moment mine is all 'drops' from the CNC plasma table !

Welcome aboard Martin, just remember in every rusty old bit of metal is a nice widget just wanting to get out  :clap:

Hi and welcome,
         What a lofty, admirable ambition!  :clap:  :clap: Why should you not also be able to do as my signature line states.
         So, above all have fun, learn stuff by making stuff and asking questions. This is the forum for doing just that with lots of folk willing to help out. Heaps to read on any thread that takes your fancy.
        Does it sound like I like Madmodder? You Betcha.  :mmr:
Again, welcome.
