About

Having owned and managed a radio design and manufacturing company for over 36 years I have finally sold and retired.   I have reverted back from electronics to my roots of ‘making things’ and trying to document what I have done so others might be stimulated to follow.

If you want some more detail on my history then see this page.

My workshop has grown over the last four years and now has a Tormach PCNC440 for CNC working which is really stretching me as a newbie to this technology.   Various sites such as NYC CNC are helping me get there.

When not in the workshop I can be found running my 5″ live steam locomotive, playing golf,  tending my veggie plot, operating on amateur radio and most important of all, spending time away from it all in our house in France.

Self indulgent ?  Why yes I guess it is but then I have a lot of time to make up. Why not join me and share any common interests ?
