    I've been lucky enough to find a tame engineer just down the road from where I live, he does all sorts of engineering jobs for me, the stuff that I can't do any longer. He is a real old fashioned engineer, no computerised tools, not even a computer in his office...just a good eye and proper tools.

    I've just had a word with him(at the Chairman's suggestion...)and he has said that he is more than willing to do any little jobs that members need doing. Prices will vary depending on what the job is, and delivery dates are dependent on how busy he is at the time, but he will do any jobs as soon as he possibly can. Remember, he'll be doing these jobs for us as a favour, so please don't expect him to do them immediately.

    All he will need a decent drawing or diagram to work from...as long as it's legible, that's fine.

    Contact me in the first instance, I'm more than willing to act as 'go-between' for you.
