I have loved engineering and making things since as early as I can remember. For my 6th Birthday I asked for tools - which I then treasured. My parents wondered what was wrong with Thomas the Tank Engine books!! At the age of 11, I became interested in Photography and made my own photographic enlarger. Around 1975 I bought an old Drummond lathe and started model engineering. I have built a Stuart no.9 steam engine, but my love of tools leads me to spend much of my time making workshop equipment.
Since 2006 I have had several of my projects featured in Model Engineers Workshop and Model Engineer.

The above are just some of the projects which have occupied me recently.
