It’s nice to have the work to keep it busy but it’s also about the Wadkin itself.

I hope to get going on my RU as therapy for a seven month legal fight to keep my home. I have finally got a settlement in works.

It cost me a lot including the loss of an RS lathe. So my RU will be my ticket to health. It doesn’t matter if it’s used to make the occasional pen project.

Wallace’s work has gone a long way to keeping me focused on what I needed to do during my fight. I am forever grateful to his postings for my own mental health.
I know the feeling. I'm doing the same. Not interested in full time production anymore. Just enjoy using the machines keeping them alive. Tony
