    I was able to do a little job for myself this weekend, a little artistic machining.

    With my old watch from over 20 years ago begging to be used I thought this job would suit him down to a tee.

    I used a few pieces from the off cut bin and away we went. The most difficult part was calculating the strange hole angle, good old trigonometry sorted that out.

    We had a 70th birthday at Malcolm Engineering and it was a chance to say thanks to somebody that has guided and helped me through some hard times and showed me how to have some good times along the way aswell.

    Thanks Dad.

    Beetle Number Plate Desk Lamp, using a late model beetle number plate light and tappet cover, the main back bone mount plate was laser cut.

    Lights up the area very well.

    Need to make one for me now.
