About me

Welcome to my site.

Phones: To navigate, use the Menu (three bar icon), above…

I’m a retired engineer with too ┬ámuch time on his hands…

I love to play with my machines, currently a CNC lathe, laser, mini router & of course, the inevitable 3D printer (now two!).

I offer personalisation to the highest degree of accuracy. All items on show, here, are available, just email me. I won’t have a shop, if anything interests you, drop me an e-mail, and we can figure something out. I normally just ask for a decent amount of beer money!

Laser cut wood items can be produced in a completely finished state, or can be produced in a flat-pack version, for your assembly, TBD.

Everything can be posted, I just ask for the cost of post & packing.

All my items can be found on my Products page. As an aside, I am happy to offer spares, in case of breakage (some items are really delicate) for nominal sums, sometimes even free!

Friends & family discounts apply!


Hit the bat!

My terms:

I endeavour to keep you happy by supplying you with a product you expect. My postal charges are cost only, blame the Royal Mail.

My machines

The slow spiral down into the rabbit hole…

Zen7x7 CNC router.

The thing from fleabay that got me into this damned addictive game…

Working area is 7″ x 7″, but with a bit of ingenuity & fettling the G-code, it’s amazing what you can do… and it all fits onto an ordinary computer table.


Next, came…

A CNC lathe…


A Denford Orac. Currently down.

Then, a…


A K40 from China. Working area around 300 x 200mm.

And an inevitable

3D printer

got added to the stable…

Creality CR-10, 300 x 300 x 400mm build area. Handles PLA, ABS, rPET-G, flexible… amazing. See blog for various runs I’ve done.

Newly added to my army… a Creality Ender 3.

An amazingly useful, robust machine.

More recently,

Ooznest WorkBee.

1000mm x 1000mm. A great machine, having fun making bigger projects. Photo’s to come…
