Professional Help

As a Chief Engineer in the Merchant Navy I have an extensive knowledge of one off and specialist engineering repairs and having started my career in a toolmakers before going to sea I have an excellent knowledge of machining with a wealth of experience gained on many different tool types.


With a love of engineering & a personal interest in historic engines and machines you will find me very intersted in any project or repair you may have.

I myself am currently building a Stuart D10 Steam Engine in my own time and hope to follow the project on the website.
