I don't know if you know of this guy ...
Norris from South Wales
He joined about a year ago and seems pretty handy re lathes/milling machines.
Not sure how far he is from you.
As in the link ... he is ... Norris ... on here ... send him a PM or his email is in his first post in that link.
PS Just checked and his last post on here was Dec 13. Still worth an email though!
