It's my firm belief that the secret to long life and happiness is to keep learning, discovering new ideas and building new skills. This is a place where I hope to share many of my hobbies and interests, and hopefully encourage others with creative and enquiring minds to have a go as well.
P.S Follow my inane ramblings on Twitter!
LATEST UPDATE: - see the amazing gas giant Jupiter and its moons in 3d!
Image of the Month for November 2020: Mars at Closest Approach
This image shows Mars within a day or two of its close approach to the Earth in 2020. Taken using a Skywatcher 150PL and ZWO ASI120MC with a 3x barlow on an HEQ5 mount.
So far the topics covered by this website concentrate on four main areas:
Model engineering - the making of working models essentially using the same materials and techniques as the prototypes.
Metalworking workshop - not just for model engineering, all sorts of hobby engineering
Projects - mostly boats so far, but I will be adding other stuff! All the things that aren't mostly made of metal.
Astronomy - a hobby that offers opportunities for photographic, engineering and electronic projects while also opening my eyes to the vastness and variety of the universe.
That's not everything though, I will be adding reviews of some of my favourite music, and perhaps a few of my own tunes, some of my photography and you will also find the obscure Adept Lathe Register on these pages.
