    My local Engineering Works have made me up some bits, and done a great job, as long as I supply drawings and explain exactly what I want.
    I don't think it would work unless you can actually be there to explain.
    It might be worth checking to see if you have anyone locally, they'll probably see it as light relief.

    Peter's shopping list:- HDS / Oveready 170N Exec/LE and an Oveready V4 Nichia Drop In. Otherwise I'm content. Want want want, that's me.

    Thanks Peter. Its fairly minor stuff required, but difficult to know who to approach locally to me.

    Also some local tech schools or colleges have eveningclasses for machine shop, either find someone going to a class or enrol tolearn which will give you access to the machines.
