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.

Image of the Month for June 2019: M13 The Great Globular Cluster in Hercules
M13 is bright enough to be seen as a small fuzzy patch in dark skies, through a medium sized telescope you can start to see the stars that make it up. Taken using Skywatcher 130P-DS scope on HEQ-5 mount with a cooled and astro-modded Canon 450D. A combination of many 30-second exposures taken in 2018 and about 40 120-second exposures taken in May 2019 has helped in resolving stars to the centre of the cluster.
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.
