|Thread: workshop hell|
Hi again chaps
and with this weather it is chaps just a quick update on the old workshop had to remove some of the bottom wall lining and some of the roof lining will have to go in the spring. On a better note the snow is melting still to cold in the workshop to do any fine work just managed to clean up my old 90j plane. lets hope this year i might get to finish off some of my projects do envy you guys you all seem to get such a lot done.
any way all the best mike
