    Default Hello



    I am about to begin work on a similar project for a client of mine. From what I can tell there will be significant overlap in terms of features.

    Love your machines. Neat stuff. I'm a DIY fan too but I think a grinding machine is out of my league. Thanks for sharing.

    Im lucky i work for a motorcycle repair shop so ive got the use of a mig wielder and other tools but back in the mid 90's when i was unemployed i made stuff like this from wood and a few bits and pieces i could find in organic collections(this is when you would clear out all your junk and the council would pick it up)
