Hmm, was it red? A modular system? I seem to remember something like this although not entirely sure where. I think it might have been hobbys catalogue (not hobbies derham but hobbys with a y). Their catalogue is usually in WH Smiths, and there was an advert for in tucked away in this months GWW with a web address but I dont have my copy of the mag with me at work.

Not sure how good they are, or how much you want to spend, but have you considered something like a pen makers lathe from Axminster if small size is important

Ah, got it - its a unimat system. Hobbys web address is:

http://www.hobby.uk.com

do a search for unimat or go to tools unimat

Sorry for the rambling post, was searching as I typed!
