    Hope its good brick walls, a concrete base and decent roof and not really a 'shed' .. Machine tools don't like the damp!

    it shows that i am from agricultural background!!!
    when i say shed i meant one with H beams block walls and fibre roof sheets,with a great big woodburner for all those winter projects!!
    that'l keep the wife happy!!:twisted:

    hi its been a while since i was last on.
    since then I have been slowly cleaning up my mill,checking all the levels and giving it a good lube up,I have now got it wired in at my work and have been doing some small jobs for them (I keep looking for excuses to use it :naughty:)
    I splashed out and bought a miester dro s/h off of ebay,fitted it up recently and am very pleased with it,seems accurate enough with lots of features that i am still finding out how to use.
    any way i've attached some pics etc hope they are ok
    cheers Tom....
