It's not officially Christmas for several hours but I thought I'd start this one now as I suspect some of you guys may also already have had early consignments from the North Pole ;-)

One of mine was a 103 piece inspection grade Mitutoyo gauge block set, it's over 20 years old but it's in great condition :D

My prezzie to myself is 200 years old, cost me 385 + 8 P&P and while fully functional is completely useless. I bought the wife some fags :friendly_wink:

That's lovely, and something gun related which no spouse could complain about as an ornament ;-)

Ah, a long term project, that'll keep you busy for a while, I'd say 18 to 25 years at a guess ;-)

Same sort of time frame for my gift, only difference being it gets 12' in length and can take a chunk if I accidental wind him up!! :black_eyed:

I had fun throwing cuddly toys up the stairs last week while Chloe was sliding them back down the bannister rail. I am 65 and she is nearly 2 so we just carried on until a responsible adult arrived. When she is bigger I will teach her how to blow things up.
I bought a treasure chest and started throwing all my loose change in it for her, it is quite heavy now. Maybe we will blow that up. I am only here to serve :distracted:

Start em young, learn by example blow shit up to show her, @ 2yrs old by time she hits nursery she'll be able to make teachers day much more intersting.:toot:

Grandchildren are better than children. You love them, have fun with them. Teach them the dark arts of dismantling to show them how things work etc... Then when they are tired, hungry or need a nappy change - you just hand them back to mummy or daddy. When you have paid your dues of parenting your own children, they owe it to you.

Happy New Year to all of you !

A wonderful Thermos mug to hold coffee in from the XYL (wife for those who are not associated with amateur radio). That and a Delta 3D printer to play with as I design and build a bigger one as some clients want items printed for prototypes and they are the paying type of clients so away we go.

Merry Christmas to all (traditionally goes from the 24th to the 6th).

Geoff, would you mind linking (or PMing) the DRO you've bought? I've tried in the past using cheap assemblies with digi-calipers to my ML7, but would prefer something a bit less heath-robinson.
