Well, that is what I have had to put up with went to a steam rally and set up one of our marquees. And as I keep telling the wife I am not going to take up knitting.

While I was there picked up a few things for my workshop.
A second-hand compressor which broke the bank and some measuring tools. The compressor only cost me £16 but could do with a new switch even though the one fitted does its job of turning the compressor on and off when it reaches pressure or drops below a certain pressure but you can not turn it on and off manually as it is on all the time.
The other pieces cost either £1 or £2 each.

I even managed to buy a silly hat to keep my head warm

Is this a Sine that you are raising the Bar on model component accuracy?

Or are you just developing a new image

and contemplating sloping off into the Metal forum to get away from the knitting.

I have to confess that I have been looking at a metalworking lathe and milling machine to build working models in metal. I will still be woodturning.
I need to look at a much larger workshop to fit it all in

Don't know where you get your days from, but they have far more hours in them than we have around here.
