Hi All

I'm a hobbyist.

BTW - I've been lurking around for a few weeks and I've just joined the forum. Lots of familiar names!

Hi all

I realised that things were quiet elsewhere but have only just found where you all moved to. Good to see lots of familiar names.

Hello all,
I am a hobbyist who has just started this year, so far I have got heavily into the machinery side of it maybe because i have spent my working life in the production side of engineering and don't have the patience to do things slowly. At present I work for a well snack food manufacturer which is a little different to what i'm used to and I seem to have this desire to produce/fabricate hence the woodworking machines, I stiil have lots to learn about techniques, machinery and of course safe working practices and hopefully this is the right place for it.

All the best
Martin

Hobby which is why I do it all with hand tools if I had to make a living at it there would be a higher degree of mechanization.

HOBBY! thats why I joined to try and get better, I certainly would not try to do a tradesman out of his job by undercutting him and doing a bad job at the same time, which is what is happening in my game (HVAC@Plumbing, I won,t mention names but I think they are from Europe)

Hi Rashly went straight ahead with new post [Startrite K210] Tradesman during day - carpenter builder but trying to set up home workshop definitely hobby. Luckily many tools transferable from work and new ones tax deductible !!!

I'm definitely a hobby woodworker.

Started beating myself up over Christmas about not having made much with all the gear I've got. Then realised I'm not as bad as I thought - a couple of side tables, ornamental box, bathroom cabinet, baby changing unit/chest of drawers, bookcase, some shelves, plus other odds and ends.

Getting back into the hobby after a 4-5 year break. Got a pretty good tool kit and workshop setup.

Cheers,

Lee
