Hi from Milton Keynes.
« on: September 16, 2015, 07:20:03 PM »
greetings all.

Another early retirement convert, been a modder since it was called "cant afford a new one!"  Recently been busy setting up a workshop and making a mess. Amassed asome gear and built some bits and pieces, the most complex was probably thinking I could design and build a CNC, pic of the electronics somewhere nearby...  Looking forward to learning from the clever people here. :-)

Welcome  :coffee:,  Oh no, that's espresso as in coffee but hey, why not?
      So you are retired now. Get ready to be busier than ever but enjoy the playpen / shed / workshop or whatever you choose to call it. It's 15 years since I became, "Surplus to the company's requirements". Frankly there has not been one day where I woke thinking that I would like to go to work. Playpen, Grand children, and model engineering club fill most days as does checking out this amazing web forum. Enjoy.
