Harold Hall


This page contains a list of metalworking forums that have links to my website posted by the members, and to which I contribute, most very occasionally, due to the number of forums.


Whilst, where appropriate, I give  the country in which the forum is based, all accept, and have, members from elsewhere.


If my comments about a forum are  wrong, or inadequate, I will be pleased to make changes. In this case do contact me via the correspondence page with details.
