That is a great looking piece and thanks for the history lesson. It runs in my mind that I have either seen a documentary on Ned or I saw a movie about him.

If you have been around the board very long, our old Aussie buddy JohnB told the story of Ned a couple of years back to accompany a cutting he did.

Johns' Post is here

Wonder what the old bloke is up to these days.

Sawing is much cheaper than therapy.

Nice cutting Peter - I think you've done a great job of converting a picture to something that can be cut out.

I sorta remember that as well Tony, haven't seen it in years
Experience is something you don't get until just after you need it.
