I should be there if I survive the next half hour of trying to take deep cuts in steel on the metal lathe. Yesterday I sent about half a kg of steel round bar flying around the workshop and almost needed clean pants.Theory and practice are the same in theory, but different in practice.

Tonight I was talking about an assembly/infeed/outfeed table that I want to build.
Here's the link. The ULTIMATE Workbench
I have been looking at the microjig Matchfit system for a while and I think the time might be right.
The plan calls for a sit/stand desk mechanism to support the table and I found this electric one that looks like it will do the job with a 100kg lift capability so I bought it. Electric Standing Desk Height Adjustable Sit Stand Up Motorised Frame Only Black | eBay
Should keep me out of trouble for a few hours.Theory and practice are the same in theory, but different in practice.

Lovely little chat with two of the regulars tonight.
A book Iíve been prattling on about, that myself and Paige were trying to convince Doug to read.
May suit a few hear who enjoy reading about the history of Engineering or more precisely the development of precision.

Thats exactly the one.

Haven't read the book but did hear S Winchester on an episode of ABC Conversations with Richard Fidler (Sep 2019). Can still be heard via the net.
I found it both interesting and amusing, and learned that one of the most important people in the development of modern engineering was called Iron Mad Wilkinson. It's sad that we don't have people with names like that anymore, it has such a mad scientist feel to it.Cheers, Bob the labrat
