"There are heaps of cheaper machines around ranging from pocket size laser engraver for under a hundred to multi-head cnc/laser dual rigs for heaps more. These people have died a lot of money into packaging and marketing by the looks of things."

"I would ride my bike over the area.  This is a quick and easy way to locate any loose screws in an area. The only drawback is that it can cost a bit in puncture repair kits. "

Hey Titch I saw your post on Spokeshaves about the spud peeler, I bought one and it works great! Thanks for the tip, for the sake of a couple of ££'s (I'm in UK) it's saved me a load of grief :))

Real good job on that banjo uke Titch! Hope to hear how she sounds. All the ones I've made with that pete plastic are surprisingly loud!

Hey Titch,

I just watched all your video. Which is a major feat due to my limited attention span.

All your builds are very clever and you play and sing well too.

Keep building and posting
