    that said I'm happy to come down on a sat morning get stuck in, sleep then get stuck in again sun
    it would be nice to have someone split the diesel with me

    you have some juggling to do Irving, I think Fivetide has a possible bagsy on one spot in my van and jazz may have a second... chas may be able to buy the last birth with all that bacon:) and he sound like he might make a half decent foreman

    so that is where I am up to... if you can make any use feel free
    Too right mate !! I'm well up for it :) So I bagdsy the seat!! Shot gun !! I'm strong when fuelled by alcohol lol

    lol, yeah but can you walk in a straight line touching your nose. Then I'd be willing to lift up a 300kg lathe with you on the other end.

    Seriously though, bring some for all of us, no really seriously, I'm in London so considered as one of the local guys. I got 2 lutons with tail lifts, if someone wants to drive one and I the other. Only thing I'm worried about is the actual date and time. I'm only available in evenings and all day Sunday. I think it'll be a great opportunity to meet a few folks from this here site. Just let me know guys.

    Typical student, using all that yoof & IQ to talk himself out of a bit of manual labour.

    I'd be passing both Nottingham & Leicester on the way Darn' Sarth (where the softies live). I'm a slooow driver so I'd need to pick you up around 5am ish

    Careful, I hear that londoners get real ale by by throwing a pint glass on a fishing line into the thames. Might want to see the doctor and get some shots before you go...

  8. guys, i'm touched by the offers to help. think i've sorted some storage in a relatives garage but need to check how secure it is. then need to figure dates and arrange with hospital a home visit. will probably have to be weekday and a dry one at that (and i'm not refering to the beer :lol: ) reckon could be done in a day (I hope) with enough hands/transport

    I can only half appreciate how important a precious home visit would mean to you, please don't feel the need to waste one on supervising a rag tag bunch of rogue's, vagabonds & Ne'er do well'rs, who've descended from the four corners of the kingdom to ransack & pillage your workshop.

    It's not like all your tools will be on eBay before the day has ended .

    Then again, I reckon I'd want to be there if a bunch of semi-tame, experiMENTAList CNC enthusiasts were to descend on my workshop & proceed to rip it apart.

    It would be nice to meet you, but not totally necessary. We only need to know what needs moving & where to.

    I agree with Chas. Weekdays no problem for me. G.
