    S'funny what you can learn fossy...
    No previous experience of fabrication or welding till i came to this job. With the right gear, you can turn things out you would never have thought of.
    Couple of years ago a friend broke part of his ornate gate catch, a real detailed bit..couldnt get another.
    Give me the old bit and i'll make you one...t'was duly done.

    :ohmy: 'fcuk off..he said, you havnt made that !!!! :ohmy:

    I'm not sure to this day he believes me :biggrin:

    Ive made motorbike trackstands, aquarium stands, repaired electric window mechanisms off cars, etc etc...and i'm not even qualified to do the job i do, let alone trained to do this :biggrin::biggrin:
