Those that arrive at this website, via whatever route, will soon become aware that
a major portion of it is devoted to metal working activities carried out predominantly
in a home metalworking workshop. My background is that I was editor of the Model
Engineers' Workshop magazine, from issue 7 (October 1991) to issue 28 (April 1995)
and have since written in all but a few issues up to issue 178 (July 2011), and just
a few since. These pages now contain most of the metalworking articles I wrote during
this time, for an index to these, click here.
If you have arrived at this site using a search engine or by some other prompt and
having other interests you may still find some of the pages worth a visit. Typically,
these cover Cabinet making, Sound recording, Marquetry, The Salvation Army, Photography,
Horology, and others, all of which I have an interest in.
Viewers having arrived here because of their metalworking activities may also find
some of these non metalworking pages worth browsing. Typically, many have an interest
in electronics and will find the internal photographs of my Revox A77 sound recorders
worth an inspection as these Swiss made machines are in a class of their own.
Metalworking and other Interests
Quite different from my normal “Latest Additions” but I have added to my Personal
pages details of two American ships that sunk off the island of Islay (one of our
holiday islands) during the first world war with the loss of over 400 Americans,
also the help given by the islanders at the time. Click here to go to my Islay pages,
then again at the bottom of the page that comes up.
