Hello Graeme, welcome to the site! I'm really glad you you've joined and that you are participating here in the forum! That's great. You'll be helping me -- while you help many others, just sharing yourself and your experiences with us.
I looked at your profile and noticed we have a few things in common.
Our priorities are the same. And, we enjoy doing some of the same kinds of activities... And, I even know what it's like to be a machinist! (I call that part of my life -- my past life -- because it was so many years ago... but, when I did it, for the short time that I did it, I enjoyed it!
Nice to have you aboard! I look forward to reading much more from you!
