Place one end of the bar in a vice, the other in a drill, (most drills now have a slow start) then start very slowly and keep it steady. It's surprising how easy it is....

A great magazine this month, so much relevant and interesting content. I would suggest that I now look forward to Garden Rail more keenly than SMT!

Re: Peckett Body Build - First Attempt

For a first attempt it's absolutely brilliant, the amount of detail and skill put into it is first class.. :thumbright:

Black would be an excellent choice my friend.. Matt preferably.....

Re: Sandstone & Termite

Like Rik, I didn't find it boring. Higher shots from a Drone, if that's what you are contemplating Greg, would be great I think and other members would appreciate it also maybe.
