Yep. :giggle:

A couple of years ago on a caravan site in Moffat there was a turner with a little Jet lathe mounted on a B&D workmate sitting outside his awning happily turning tea light holders.
I doubt my wife would allow my to do that, she just about tolerates my golf clubs and fishing rods.

I was gonna say it would have been sadder if you’d taken your lathe with you but after reading Bobs post I’m not so sure :unsure:

I once saw an Austrian lady of indeterminate years next to her enormous camper van, peddling away on a stationary exercise bike. Why she didn't want a real bicycle still baffles me.
