Just a quick line or three to say Hello to you all.
I live in the United Kingdom, West Yorkshire, near Leeds.
I am 59 yo, semi retired & work part time in a local charity, helping people with mental health issues, in the woodworking dept to be precise. Working there has rekindled my interest in woodworking in particular routing and wood turning: we are always trying new ideas and ways to generate income in these difficult times.
I try to save the charity money by repairing / maintaining our machines when they get "tired", current repair is a Makita sliding compound saw, the drive gears are worn, cost of parts alone are £130, ouch !!
I am a retired mechanical engineer, with managerial experience.
Time to go, I am trying to design my own router lathe, the ones on 'the bay' sell for way too much !!
