    Good morning Geoff, I haven't been on here for a couple or more years due to health, and I also forgot my logging in info so changed from g4ghp to G4gh. Just down the road from you. Hello Clive, read your mail very often, and appreciate your welcoming, and also good advice.
    Cheers... Bren

    Hi Geoff Sorry for not replying earlier but I have been away in Padstow for a few days. It looks like you have quite a bit of kit there I have a Warco that I have converted with ball screws and steppers and also a Myford converted to cnc. You certainly seem to have the skills if you can make parts like those of the engine.

    I take it you are a ham I did mine in 1965 but did not do the morse till another 20 years hence the G0HHR

    Hello Geoff,sorry about the delay in coming back to you. I sent you an email, and hopefully you have got it. Were you a radio ham earlier on in life? I have given up my radio comms, as I really only used it when I was in the forces, as it gave me a lot of flexibility, and I used to design and build big amplifiers.

    I am right in the middle of getting a new 3 phase motor and controller for my old Myford ML7. I see you have a good selection of machines in your workshop, which gives you the ability to tackle some interesting constructions.
