Same from us too. The X1 looks much better for having Andy’s stuff on it :worthy:

I hope Work goes well and the stress lightens :yup:

I fully understand where you are at, Andy. I too was in a similar situation with a partner and it's soul destroying. I gave up after 12 years and went to work for one of my customers.
No more VAT returns on a sunny Sunday and paid for every hour I work.
Engineering has always been the poor relation in terms of reward, compared to other avenues.
The public will gladly pay a Ford main dealer (or HD for that matter) £120 an hour for "servicing" but not in manufacturing.Machine tools are not cheap, let alone a place to work from.

I really hope that you get to a position where things are better for you soon.

I'll add the the pile of thanks to you mate. Glad I got your headers while I could. Sad I missed out on some other of your bits over the years.

What kind of stuff do you have left?

And good luck with getting on with the daily grind.
