Nice to have a protege.... I'm obviously assuming as many of us that Grandad's gonna be popular with all those tools, engines and other stuffs in the shed  :borg:  :dremel:

Congratulations :clap: :clap:

It must need some  :scratch: to come to terms with your daughter being a mother.

Look out for a nice soft brush. In a couple of years, you will called on to babysit, and will need something to get the swarf off Joshua before he goes home.

Stu

I wondered how long it was going to take you to get around to using the camera. Yep, he looks like engineering material. Best get him a rattle in the shape of a train to get it ingrained into him early. You realize that you only have 9 months to get his train set built for Christmas.  :ddb: :ddb:

Cheers  :beer:

Stew,

He`s a young engineer for sure...... After only 12hrs, he`s worked out how to remove a glove......  :thumbup:

Just think what he could be dismantling in a few years time!   :D

He looks great Stew. Did he come in the plastic box? I think that's a great idea, you can choose the one you want without having to open the box first!  :lol:  :)
Cheers!

Thanks Chaps

I'm going to introduce him in gradualy first a tour of the shop, just to get him use to the smell of cutting oil and what a lathe and a mill looks like, then I'll start him off with a lump of wood a bag of nails and a hammer, when he's got the hang of knocking the nails in straight we'll move on to other things.

Obviously he's inherited some of Stew's safety awareness for rotating machinery !
