A quick word and then back on topic..........I have been advised (by a member who I shall not name) to remove the first line of this thread which I have done. My apologies to anyone who might have found it offensive.....no offence was implied or intended. You may find my manner slightly light hearted....you may even doubt my dedication to this hobby. I love this hobby and if I appear light hearted then put that down to the fact that 2 years ago I learned that I had a major health problem......thankfully and after the appropriate action.....i have a few more years left............good reason to be light hearted.
One further thing.......I do not, never have and never will tolerate petty politics.....we each have our own views, our own likes and our own dislikes.....and I did not come on this forum to listen to rumours, half-truths, or fairy tales.
I came hear as the majority did........to talk about our passion for miniatures.
Enough said.......love you all.

Yes you are so very right. My favourite Doe is the cordless dremel and its attachments.

Sorry, forgot they 'why'. The first 2 are pretty obvious and my scroll saw was very cheap from Axminster but does the job I need it to. The skewers are great for everything ... propping things on, putting glue in small places ... and they are very cheap.

And re your note on politics, rumours etc. ... me too.

No need to apologise Mike, if 'Narrowed Minded' people can't see that your comment was intended as a light hearted joke then that's their problem. They don't have to read the thread, As I said when you joined "I not normally one of the Welcoming Committee" as some aren't as friendly as they make out.
Keep posting your Fabulous Projects and please retain your Light Hearted sense of Humour, I for one one appreciate it
End of Story, Now going back to look at 'Them Boats'

Offensive?????? Dear Mike you where definitely not being offensive. What is wrong with a little bit or humor? Keep up fhe good work and you are indeed dedicated to this hobby. Life is to short and without a laugh or two what kind of a life is that ? So Mike please do lighten up. A joke or two can brighten any one's day.

Designs on what Jeanette? Sounds interesting.........talking of designs, I recently went on the hunt for a really thin leather....glove leather.....I found a wonderful supplier. They sell finished products but on their online shop look for 'leather skins' a massive selection of really fine leathers in a range of colours and some are also patterned. They come in 4ft sq pieces.........I used the 'wine coloured' on the sofa in my Notting Hill house.
Most come in three grades from 15 to 23....... The better the grade means you can get larger workable pieces from it.........the company is Pittards..........am I allowed to say that...!
