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.
P.S Follow my inane ramblings on Twitter!
LATEST UPDATE: - Workshop Books by Neil Wyatt
Image of the Month for October 2018: The Garnet Star and the Elephant's Trunk
Seriously, who gets to make up all these names? Actually the Garnet Star, Mu Cephei, is possibly the reddest naked eye star in the sky and was described by William Herschel, who stated it has "a very fine deep garnet colour". The Elephant's Trunk, a dark wiggly patch near bottom right, requires more of a stretch of the imagination.
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.
