Some of the above links have missing images, I've included them all here for easier access whilst they are checked out, if anyone can help recover any missing information I will try and edit accordingly.

Ahh niki - came across his list of stuff on rigid forum . com - I've used a few of them, and I'm sure I'll use more, he definitely planted the seed of creative thinking to my problem solving rather than throwing money at a problem, which is needed now more than ever.

His work and ideas will be honored by many in years to come for sure.

I've immense respect for the late Niki. He was so good at making do with what was available.

I do most of my work in Thailand and have the luxury of importing my own tools. However most Thais can't do that and have to make do with home made alternatives.

There is a very creative woodworker who almost seems to be a reincarnation of Niki. He has a website "thaicarpenter.com" and posts on YouTube, while the explanations are in Thai so I can't understand them and some of his technique could be better, I think he has Niki's spark
