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. The reason being that it is mainly for the interest
of readers of the Model Engineers' Workshop magazine, of which I was editor 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), now only occasionally. Non readers of the
magazine who have a metalworking interest will also find much of this content of
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 such subjects as 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 will 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.

Having now ceased regularly writing for the “Model Engineers’ Workshop” magazine,
I have started adding most of the articles I have provided over the last twenty years
onto this website. There are presently around 100 items with
still a few to be added. Click here for an indexincluding links to each subject.
