It's my firm belief that, when you stop learning, you're dead - or you might as well be. 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.
As real life is just far too boring, I apologise in advance for the nuggets (easter eggs?) of cheesy humour hidden across these pages, but it's all good clean fun. Well, mostly.
LATEST UPDATE: - Workshop Books by Neil Wyatt
Image of the Month for March 2018: The Horsehead and Flame Nebulas in Ha
This is a 7nm hydrogen alpha narrowband image taken using a cooled and astromodified Canon 450D with a special Baader filter.
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.
