I bought a nice little rotary table for my mill anyway the guy wanted me to go down on sunday and collect all the way to Dunfermiline a round trip of aboutjust under 200 miles I had arranged to pay cash on collection.My old pal Fred was looking forward to a nice day out and we were all ready to go.The seller emailed me and said he had sold it too the guy who bought his lathe as he had already promised him to do so and forgot! "what crap".I just wish people would be more honest and just say the guy offered him more,Alistair ps still on the lookout for a table.

8" Hoffman rotary table for £82.00, shame on you man, one of the best three makes for less than an import.

Turn your Keyboard over so that QWERTY is at top left not bottom right.

Try pressing the 'Insert' key.
Those 8" Hoffmann tables are very nice, probably would have been just right for you.

Just trying to cheer you up.

Alistair: Turn your keyboard upside down and give it a good spanking! Really! It will knock all kinds of dirt and junk out of it and might very well fix it. Gary P. Hansen
