Hi there, Bleonard,

Welcome to Mad Modders.

How much of your 50+ years machining was in your workplace and how much in your 'man-cave'?

Have a good look around the various threads and join in, we look forward to seeing your pictures and reading of your projects, experiences and likes/dislikes. 
Best regards,

Pete W.

If you can keep your head when all about you are losing theirs, you haven't seen the latest design change-note!
