MMMmmmmm !!!!! Solank die Mods nie dink ek is besig met "advertising" Die Plank is n De Necker 62x38 met n cord van 126mm op sy breedste. 115Mph ball to the wall in my Bushbaby, teen 3000 Rpm. Op n 28grade celsius dag met 100 liter petrol kry ek n gerieflikke 900 fpm klim teen 75 Mph. Nou Ja , believe it or not soos Ripley se :lol: :lol: Ek skiet nie die Jab engine af nie , elke produk het sy plek in die mark, maar "bang for your buck" gaan jy nie hierdie engine klop nie.

Dankie Jean (en Mods), beslis 'n motor om te oorweeg. Wat is jou gemiddelde brandstof verbruik?

JT,

Have to aggree with you - all we have to do is check the aircraft type thread to see there are LOADS of workshops out there. Come on guys, dont be shy.

How about an update on what you have been building in there recently. I have moved, further east out of Kemton Park, and have yet to take any of new 'was a bedroom, now converted to workshop' space.

Guess I will have to lead by example...

I'm not building at present but do a lot of woodwork in mine. Mostly build wooden toys for my wife's business.

You okes will 'vang `n big skrik' if you see mine. The focus is on the work in workshop and it only gets cleaned at the end of a 'batch run'.

Still a lot to do in terms of fitting extra shelves and organising tools etc. Maybe I will post a pic for some advice. It's a single garage so not much space to begin with.
