(S)lowly starting up again

Time takes its toll, yes, but in some ways is also a healer! The picture above is a ‘before’ and with a bit of time and hopefully not too much money, something better will definitely become of it 🙂 I am beginning agonisingly slowly to put some workshop equipment together again for my various projects….


Little ’40s Myford 3 1/8″ ML2

Here we have a lovely little item I picked up on my last (probably actually the very last) visit to the UK after having moved to Germany again (since the Home Office refused my wife’s leave to stay in the UK, despite having a 5-year European leave to stay as the result of being married…


Footrest/Kickstart Rubber B60/2

Ready to go! This part is ready to have the tooling made, if there is enough interest! As a first move forward in the Ukraine setup might be this prewar kick-start/gear-change rubber B60/2, which for at least twenty years has been sold under this part-number with a closed end… which is completely wrong! And yes,…


Brooklands day!!

LOTS of Velocettes at Brooklands… For those of you a little too far away to catch the ‘action’ at Brookands, whether at ‘home’ or abroad, here are a few pictures of the event. The pictures speak for themselves for the most part and will require little extraneous comment! The weather was beautiful spring-time stuff, with…


Rigid Velocette Top Yokes for WEBB forks

Somebody please help. I am trying to get the one or other thing produced for rigid Velocette’s and would prefer, if possible, to be able to initiate or keep (once established) the production process here in the UK, close to the market centre and close to central distribution-channels. I am not able to manufacture anything…


Visit to Wayne… and a grumble

Space-Poor play-room… Well, I’ve been here in the UK 5 weeks now and not all has gone smoothly, not least of all the merry-go-round with the banks/licenses/ID etc. Since I have been out of the country since 1981 (!), there have been a few changes to things like Anti-Terrorism- and Anti-Money-Laundering-Legislation and -Requirements which have…


Relocation to the UK

Well, I can only say that a ‘helluva lot’ has been going on in the last few weeks, not least of which is the fact that I will be relocating – with the business – to the UK on the 19th October, so in 9 days. The reasons are many, one of the stronger points…


Slow Wake-Up after Christmas

The Koalas in our garden are still sleeping, though! Down here in South Australia, it has been difficult to get anything done (by anyone else, that is!) since about the end of October…all the run up to Christmas was a chore, everyone is ‘flat out like a lizard drinking’ to get all the orders out…


Summer Doldrums

35˚C yesterday and into 40˚C today … and not even January yet! Pretty warm for the time of year, even down here, where everything is moving at snails-pace (except for last minute Christmas shopping!) Christmas down here is, of course, the main summer-holiday season, so everything stops from about a week ago until somewhere at…


My Book is Published!!

Breaking News!! Imagine! My book is now finished and published, as an eBook to start with, available on AMAZON for Kindle (and Mac, Windows, various telephones etc.) Hard-copy will follow before Christmas, but get it now for an introductory Ten Bucks! This has been in the pipeline for a while now and I decided to…
