Default Hello Just joined from England.

Hello everyone, I have only just found out about this board from a member of a very quiet board in the UK.

I have been interested in Fretwork all of my life (and of course general woodwork). My Grandfather used to teach fretwork in the 1920's and sell fretwork tools that he bought wholesale from the great original Hobbies company of Dereham in Norfolk.

My dad who sadly passed away in Nov 2006 was also a Fretworker and Hobbies Fan and made lots of toys and stuff which he sold just after WWII up until the late 1950's when toys were hard to get, as a boy I used to help (lol more like Hinder) him.

I have always been a supporter of the original Hobbies company and over the years have collected 100's of their wonderful plans, I have a Hobbies A1 fretmachine and several Hobbies handframes but nowadays I prefer my Hegner and Diamond machines.

I hope I have not bored people too much with my spiel but I had to say something to introduce myself!

Thanks, No I am afraid I haven't even been a lurker here TBH, I literally found out about this forum a few min's before joining this morning.

It looked such a good place I joined straight away!

Well Thank you for the welcome.

I have just looked at your pictures and TBH I am still suffering from Shock! They are amazing, After seeing such talent think I shall unplug my saw and take up some other hobby! I have never done anything like that and would not know where to start! I am in awe TBH.

Hi John

Welcome - I'm glad you've decided to drop in . This place is a bit more active than the other forum, isn't it ?

Don't be daunted by the accomplishments of the wonderfully talented members here - they're all willing to share knowledge (and humor) and you'll be amazed at how quickly your scrolling abilities will develop.

Gill

Welcome Druid,
Yes this is a great bunch of people. It seems that the Brit contingent is growing rapidly. It is nice to have friends overthere in case I need parts for my TVR or 67 Triumph Tiger 500.

I like the comment at the end of your introduction.
