Default New_Old school E Wheels being made in the UK

Hi Group,

Been watching some YouTubes and came across this one that I'm not sure has been posted here. I think this is really cool that this guy is reproducing an old 1930's E wheel.

Check out the video list link there are 8 episodes. Enjoy, I sure did...!

Definitely cool to see the guy meticulously recreate the wheel. I wish him success.

We're watching a heroic story. I wish him many and well-paying customers.
When I see the equipment of some of my colleagues .... They have almost nothing in the workshop and they do a great job. Others feel that their work will not be needed tomorrow. Why would they buy something. They lasted with this feeling for 20 years.

This is a bike for those who love their job. Then there are the good results.
Which customer will appreciate your quality readiness and is willing to pay with pleasure ??

Yes, I have seen one craftsman build the shop, then the workbenches, then the tool chest ..... and the tools .... and then the airplane....
Then again, I know of two husbands who spent countless hours up on the roof of the home while inspecting, fixing, painting, watching the birds, reading the paper over the years .... while the neighbors watched.
