    Hi folks,

    Just thought I'd add a quick how do in the 8L section. I joined a while ago and posted up a quick hello in the main section (Hello from sunny Newport). Just thought I'd add an extra one here as it's where I'm likely to spend the vast majority of my forum time.

    Cheers

    Marlon

    I'd planned to do some of the smaller jobs first, but as usual, best laid plans....etc

    I managed to get 'permission' for a map at Inters a month or so back. That has made a massive difference. I've also got a shiny new 008 and Forge TIP waiting to go on tomorrow. Just got to pick up some tidy clamps from a local firm in the morning and it'll be all done.

    Pics are in the 'hello from Newport' link ^

    I found another powder coaters based in Ponthir, whilst at Dubs In The Castle last weekend. Completely untested but you're welcome to his details if you want. Word of warning, TWS can be pretty steep :-(

    To be fair, the conversation went "Think I might try the 6 hour free map, see what it's like" to which she replied "I know what you're like, you'll just get to the end of the free bit and get it done. You might as well do it now..."

    I'll have to take her to a few more shows...
