    Portable P/T's

    Did I say I have worked as an electrician for.. ever.. and know little about working with wood? I well I did and don't.

    Hi :)

    Just a quick hello... Hello :) I ended up on this forum several times while searching out wood butchery methods, being an electrician by trade mostly my joinery skills extended to replacing smashed floor boards etc ::) but that is all behind me now as I abandoned that to start up an online cat...
