    It’s finally taking shape. Have to say it is a great relief to find that all those hundreds of fine measurements and cuts have result in a hull that fits quite snuggly. Plenty to go but now I know it’s worth it.

    Built a press while in lock down. Thanks to Mr Andrews this may not have happened for a very long time.
    Parts where amassed the last few years to build this. 12'' stroke on the 3.5'' diameter cylinder. Steel was heading to China via Sims metal before I saved it. Just need a DC power pack now to replace the hand pump.

    Does Paul know that you are doing this?
    If not I might tell him just to get him off my back asking every day if I finished building my trailer.
    He has a lot of advise that he could give you, tell you how good you are, question everything and more advise, you know lawyers know everything.

    Geez, Beet. That's good. How many Chooks? We are down to four chooks at the moment and are lucky to average two eggs a day.

    Close to 50. We have some very old, some younger ones and very younger ones that will start laying in the next week or so. We keep the old till they pass away then plant them so they replenish the soil. Got a thing going where all are spoken(at a cost) for each week at this stage. Regards

    Amazing how many kids of today can't read a normal clock.

    If its not digital then they wouldn't have a clue.
