Looks like you've been seduced by the dark side!

I frequently see Myfords being advertised in local free-ad type papers. Is that the kind of thing you had in mind?

Hi John

Always been on the dark side :lol:

Engineering was my passion since early teens (mechanical and electronic)

Last lathe I owned was a Colchester student - 8' bed. Far too big for my garage!!

What I want is something to make guides and bushes for some jigs and mods I want to make and perhaps do some milling.

Something like this would make a nice xmas prezzie from mrs T:

Anyone want to sell me one (preferably before xmas?)

Yep I got of quite lightly, but I have just ordered a couple of the cheap Japanese type saws from toolstation, so your influence has had some effect. :lol:

That's all we need. Not only more jigs, but not even ones we can make for ourselves 'cos we don't have the requisite lathe. Don't do it, Mrs Tony, for the love of god, don't do it!

God lord, it's that man again! I was wondering about you, old fruit. Obviously you're in the land of the living though, so I worry no more.


I know what you mean; it does look a tad ninja-ish, but it's supposed to represent someone metaphorically hiding behind the sofa, I think. Perhaps if I could find a dalek smilie to go with it...?


Cheers, Alf

I think you're all very cruel to me and my lovely jigs - probably a jealousy thing :lol: :lol:
