Another one from Lincolnshire
« on: July 15, 2012, 01:41:57 AM »
Hello everyone,

My name is Chris, from North Lincolnshire, I'm a near retirement lorry driver with a fervent interest in home engineering.

I have an old but very serviceable Colchester Master, Elliott Rapidmil, Clarkson Tool & Cutter grinder, Progress 3 pillar drill, MMA, Aldi Gasless Mig and bottles.

I seem to make things to make things to make things, know the feeling?

I rebuilt a Bensen Gyroglider, with my own fully bearing'd rotorhead, regretfully I've no digital photos of any of it.

In the past I've done quite a bit of machining for local garages, Cylinder heads, Brake disks and the like.

I really mostly enjoy modifying my machinery, I'll post a few of the mods in time, I have already posted 'visit my shop' in the 'Shop' section before venturing onto here, apologies for that oversight.
Chris
Ulceby, North Lincolnshire.
