There are so many people out there who will tell you that you can't. What you've got to do is turn around and say "watch me"

Hey Busy,

Machinery House in East Tamaki has English Wheels available with 7 bottom dies for $1012 including gst and stretching/shrinking machine for $820 incl.
Chinese made of course but for home use they would be ideal.

Garry.

Garry you've seen my garage, where would I put it? I've got a work bench back there (I think), no idea how big or what colour it is lol.

One day, when I win lotto and get my 8 car garage (and caravan for the missus).
Bedford manor sounds good :D
