Hello and welcome.

Much of my machinery is still in need of some TLC, I will continue to include pictures of most of my goodies for the many like me who get enjoyment from just browsing.

Please consider this site as always under construction and if you find anything glaringly wrong feel free to email me, come to that email me if you wish to discuss anything here.

I know I have been able to help a few people over the last few years and I will continue to do so if I can, but now I am wondering if there is anyone out there who can help me. I am still looking for Ornamental Turning parts for my Fenn lathe and tools and equipment by Fenn & Co, for details please click below.

Please feel free to copy any pictures or information from this site for your own use, however any literature on here may be covered by copywrite and is of course just for your information and entertainment.


Please dont be scared to get in touch, I dont bite, and I am just an enthusiast like you and although most things here are of a serious nature.


I do have a good sense of humour, so here are a few tales to make you chuckle, "I hope".


Or you might find Mr Punch here and there, give him a nudge too



Can anyone out there help my good friend Rick, he has an outboard motor the like of which you wont believe until you see it, click here for the big beastie.
