    Okay base is on the way and looks more like a jazz base then the previously drawn tea trolley. So I am starting on the electrics. Laid out a few components and will hopefully get some wire, plugs, connectors etc tomorrow.

    Fillets and bracing added by the blacksmith.

    Looking to get the limit switches now and was wondering if the chinese 10 for a bowl of rice are worth the effort.
    I presume that I will need to get some 0.2 2 core shielded cable.

    Today it took its first breath of life. The control box is almost complete. I just have to get some 5 pin plugs and sockets for the motors. I decided to make a temporary connection to a motor and try it out. Ya beauty! Worked a treat. Got some good advice from Michael and I am well pleased.

    Some more ally arrived yesterday so as soon as possible I can continue the build.

    In the photo of the control box the wires hanging out the side are the temp connection to the motor.

    A great big thanks to Michael for machining my z plate registers for me. There has been some progress recently. I have started making the x rails and will get some piccies as soon as I can.
    Hows this for an interesting way of losing business. I went to my blacksmith with whom I have concluded about 10,000 of busines this year to make me my base. He wanted 200 which was reasonable. Then I went in after a couple of weeks to check on progress he had not started it but thought that it would not matter as it was just for my 'hobby'. Grrr

    had to baby sit an 8 year old tonight. Brilliant someone with the same engineering awareness as myself. So we set up the rig as a temp and checked a few things out. Definitely going to have to do a bit of light shimming but all in all........who am i kidding there is quite a bit to do but it is all doable. One of the bearings is loosing its balls so that will eventually have to be replaced. But I have to say it is all very exciting.
