Good evening ladies and gentlemen,
I assume there are some ladies and at least some gentlemen in this parish !
I am a Geordie living in sunny Lincolnshire. I spend most of my time building custom bicycle frames for the discerning enthusiast, despite trying to retire. People just keep turning up and enticing me with fistfuls of universal shopping vouchers and t'would be churlish to refuse to take it
. When not making, repairing or painting bike frames I make knives and sticks (the walking variety) help with training our 5 gundogs and indulge my passion for blasting clay out of the air (with limited success
) I have a rather nice workshop here on our smallholding wherein resides a Colchester Master 2500, a Bridgeport mill, a Super 7, a Kerry Super 8 drill, an Eagle surface grinder, an ancient power hacksaw, and various woodworking machines. I also have a Lincoln tig welder, oxy acetylene gear and a paint shop with a spray booth and stoving oven. My justification for all this kit is that I earn a living by using it but I love playing with it all.
Pictures will follow a) if anybody is interested and b) if I can work out how to, technology having outstripped my limited knowledge of computerise.
You all seem to be a bit mad so I should fit in reasonably well, unlike some of the more serious forums !!
