Thanks Cliff and Richard.

Richard, I have been following your BMW build on facebook for a while.

i have sent an email to Peter Tommasini to see what he recommends. i would have been keen for one of the seminars but I think Covid will have put a stop to all that for the time being.

I had been looking at these from Joels garage.

G'day Ryan, bloody good to see ya made it on here. Well done, like your intro too.
My "screen" name is Precocious Jeremiah. Actually it's the name of my scratch build Mk VII Coupe. Because it will be green and look like a bull frog front on . It is precocious as it is different.
I have been in touch with Kerry re my Eckold type mechanical metal shaper MkII. MkI is a success ! But due to the toggle link between the walking beam and ram(quill) it makes a bit of noise. The shrinking dies also worked...for 2min. The double sided tape holding the emery tape to the die faces sheared off. No surprize there. But carbide stippling the die faces is an art I will have to aquire. The MkII version has done away with the toggle link. It is an experimental design which I have not seen used anywhere. Very simple AND I hope effective.
We finally got the old lap top repaired and should be able to post some pics up the new design if proven.
As the mob on here have been very generous with their input into improving the collective skills, I have decided to share my design as an open source, if it works !
Btw there is another Chris on here that you know well. I think he goes under the name of Boris. You may want to have a look at SATAUS. He built his own bike. He is another bloke you know, under a different name....
Cheers, CJ.

Welcome to the forum mate. Probably not that far from you.
Make sure you put a thread in the Automotive section on here and you will gain a lot going back over the old threads on there too.

Cheers Marcus.

Welcome Ryan,

I have bought stuff from Peter and Hare & Forbes and never had any problems with both.
Admittedly I have bought stuff from Hare & Forbes knowing full well that I am going to modify or beef it up to suit my needs when I get it home.

Welcome to the forum Ryan. I am very impressed with your Cad work.(Is it AutoCAD, SolidWorks, or?). Regardless, it very nicely done.

I too would offer the advice to contact Peter. If you have a chance to meet him, be sure to take a large jar of cucumbers, as it will serve you well in becoming a friend of his. If you are a cook of any kind, his favorite evening meal is a cucumber and possum casserole.
