  2. Apart from being a country music legend he was also a stupendous guitarist. Talking about music snobs, there is a definition "A music snob is someone who can listen to the William Tell overture and not think of the Lone Ranger"
  3. Didn't he do a country music slot on Radio Nottingham way back when?
  4. Great job. Well done Jill Are you thinking about standing in for our late poetry legend - Chulla

  8. Lee & Hunt, Arkwright Works Crocus Street Nottingham also made machine tools particularly saws and radial drills in the late 1800's William Watts of Canal Street was another well known and long lived Nottingham machine tool company, I'm not sure if they were manufacturers or just merchants. Must have been near Widdowson's factory. As an ex toolmaker I have been fortunate to see the industry develop from rudimentary copy/duplicating/pantograph machines and spark eroders in the 60's where the final fitting was done by hand to the muti axis cnc machines supported by CADCAM software have almost made hand skills extinct except that of polishing moulds and dies. However I did see some automatic polishing machines in a toolroom that only made one type of mould. My workshop choice would be as follows 1 For plastic components a reasonable sized 3D printer 2 A Colchester Student lathe, large and robust enough for most jobs 3 A Bridgeport type turret mill with dividing head, rotary table and slotting attachment. I reckon I could do most jobs with these. I don't "need" any of these as I am lucky enough to have several mates that still run and own toolrooms so for now I still have access to all the kit I could ever want to use..

  10. Thanks for that notty ash, seems a bit complicated, the maggies had best finish top of the table and then no problem with play-offs.
  11. Good to see the Magpies climbing up the ladder but can anyone tell me the meaning of the three lines which are shown on the league ladder on the BBC website for the National League? We can only hope for a swift return to league status. As of today the first line is below Halifax, the second line is below Yeovil and the third line is above Harrogate and this is the group that Notts are in. https://www.bbc.com/sport/football/49942944?intlink_from_url=https://www.bbc.com/news/england/nottingham&link_location=live-reporting-story
  12. I remember the Lady Bay Railway bridge well as we used to walk over it to get to the Forest ground after parking on Meadow Lane and a couple of pints of Home Brewery 4 or 5 star? in the Magpie. Like Albert the area looks nothing like what I remember. Can only fix the location from the County ground and the Lady Bay Bridge. When did they make old track bed into a traffic bridge?
  13. Juliette Kaplan who gave us all many laughs as Pearl Sibshaw wife of Howard who was always trying to get off with Marina in that wonderful whimsical comedy Last of the Summer Wine has died after a battle with cancer aged 80 Thank you for all the laughs and the enjoyment that your great character acting brought to our TV screens
