This tank was so cool I was distracted and unable to post it last here it is....

steve's pipes...which Benny & Zippy made

Steve Stocker brought his lovely little triumph in the shop today to sort out his pipes. They're gonna look really cool when done. His tank looks great as it is but he insists on painting it. Looks like an acid flashback at the moment which would suit me fine!

I electrocuted myself whilst everyone watched and laughed heartily! Twats!

Spindle made the Tea and bought Jaffa cakes and I took more pics...what else can I do?

Trawler ..."You Janner!"

Popped into the shop today to take pics and say Hi to Trawler. Check out his blog here

He came all the way from Plymouth to work on his Shovel which is coming along nicely. Apart from a switch which had been powder-coated he was a happy man.

Saturday in the shop...

What a day man! Things that were supposed to happen didn't today and it seemed like everything was...well...a bit shit. But thanks to Benny, Zippy, Spindle and Dave the day ended on a high.

This is what chopper building is all about. Your buddies helping you out when you needed it.
Thanks Men!

Yes this weekend is gonna be a scorcher, if the Met office can be believed, and on Sunday we have a 'must go' event on in the South.

Unfortunately (due to circumstances beyond my control) I can't attend! So hopefully some of my fellow Stockers will attend and send me some cool pics of the day. If you are going you will not be dissapointed...

Look what cam in the post today...


...and a random picture of Flakey's latest tank art!

Steve Stockers from Swindon came up to the shop today to learn the magical art of TIG welding under the tutelage of Chopper Guru Benny Thomas! By the time I left the shop Benny had transferred his amazing skills to the young acolyte and before long Steve was welding exhaust pipes together and making tea with real flair.
"Steve... it is now time for you to leave the temple"
