With our local Chinese takeaway that's preferable.

yeah, mine used to be the dining table too, until my other half dished up some spur gear and pinion soup. Chinese takeaway is better

some of these guys got some serious heavy duty machinery in thier set ups. almost everything you could want in a mancave.

so much that the quote......'we can rebuild him, we have the technology, we can make him better, stronger....faster'

comes to mind. (you gotta be over 45 to know what i talking about)

If you can't fix it with a hammer, you have an electrical problem.

This set up speaks volumes. it says that Andrew is a 'mans man', but still sofisticated enough to admit to using hair gel. a very compelx individaul that may catch the unassuming by surprise.

Who told you I use hair gel??

Ok, but it's only to keep my hair out of my eyes when I'm working hard on my cars at my work bench...............
Oh, and when I'm routing tracks. ;)

The boys leave cars anywhere...must get around to doing some scenery work too!
PS a big thumbs up to the wireless scorpius analog hand throttle. Well done Rick.

The rest of the man cave is in reasonable shape at the moment. Hopefully a couple more guitar builds and finishing off a clone Bassman valve head and 2 X 12 cabinet before Christmas.

Thanks Rusty.
On the very right edge of the photo you can see part of the electric jack system - the whole banked curve section can be raised to the roof or lowered to change the banking angle with a push of a button. Sort of like tilting an icecream cone. The supports have to ajdust in height and angle with it.
Cheers!

That sounds so cool...
Would love to see more of that...

ps. Now you need to automate it, so it performs 1 full cyle per race just to keep drivers on their toes...
lol.
