Re: Social Gathering - August

I would think most people will attend after work so lets say 5.30pm to 6pm, it says it runs to 8pm, lets see how it is and decide if we want to hang around after that or move onto another location like Ambleside,

Cheers,

Re: 1956 Series One Rebuild Project

One tip that I found worked out well, particularly if you have limited space, is to set up a work bench on the back end of the rolling chassis using some 2x8 planks. This way it can be mobile, moved back and fort to create more space and also allow you to get on all sides of your "mobile bench".
