I used to be a mech and prod engineer ages ago. I have recently bought my own lathe (I have mentioned it here before). Now, I am looking for any engineering shops that are suitable for model engineering.
I am from Kirkby-in-Ashfield (Nottinghamshire) so am looking for suitable engineering supplies in this area. There is Engineering and Welding Supplies on Lowmoor Road in Kirkby but I don't think they are suitable (I am told they are expensive as well as mainly for the engineering industry in the area.)
I just want to go to a shop to have a look around, look at the prices and get ideas. Possibly also to finish off projects I started whilst I was a mech and prod engineer. (An air bearing (Tool and cutter grinding), a small miller, a robotic arm.)
Best regards, Dave Colliver.
