Newbie on the block!

Postby Bigfishsmallworld » Fri May 18, 2018 7:06 am

Hi All

Just joined the forum for the first time. My name is Graham and I live in the Peak District of Derbyshire. Now semi retired I still work a couple of days a week as an Energy Assessor producing EPC's for people selling or renting their homes. I also play bass in two rock bands, enjoy my caravan in Wales, do a lot of hill walking and some photography - that is when I'm not involved in renovating my son's house!!

So in between I have just started framing having bought some second hand equipment from someone who was retiring from the business. I am currently practicing my skills by doing a few jobs for home and for friends and family. I do have a couple of questions which I would appreciate some help with which I will post separately.
