Follow some of the links in his pages & you'll see that almost everything he touches somehow becomes 'interesting'.
This bloke builds pulse jet engines in his bedroom, & I've absolutely no doubt he fires them up in there too.
These guys may be of an interest to you aswell if you are not already aware of them.

Well i thought my life was pretty bad at the moment going through a divorce and sorting all crap out that goes with it but you have just made me realise that actually what I am going through is nothing compared to where you are right now.... After reading through your posts all i can say is that I can not even comprehend what you must be going through and how your life has been turned upside down over the last few months. Never give up though, anything is possible if you put your mind to it and have the right attitude which from what I have read it looks like you have.
Now... There is something i may be able to help you with... I design and build battery powered electric vehicles which means I have a very good understanding of drive and motor control systems. I have a very good range of Curtis motor controllers, motors, gearbox's etc. If you need to go own the road (hopefully not) of building your own wheelchair or some device to help you get a round then I am more than happy to let you have any parts that I have that will be of use to you free of charge. Also if you need any help with the design I would be more than willing to help you and I have a very good friend who does all of our fabrication work who has a very good range of equipment and will be able to manufacture anything that you/we come up with, again this would also be free of charge..
Send me a pm if I can be of help so we can exchange contact details.
Like I said, anything is possible so stay positive and keep your chin up...
Steve, many thanks, you have PM
Who'd have thought that you would feel the love from a bunch of metal hackers. Got to say Irving your positive attitude is amazing. Pulse jet powered wheelchair, now your talking.The more I know, I know, I know the less. (John Owen)
Irving I have limited skills but if you need some small parts making let me have the plans and I'll try my best to make them.
