This will read as one of the most boring posts ever, but I find all this rather exciting.

Just called my car insurers and changed my cover to include business use. Only added £19 for the rest of the term, about 6 months. So some of my motoring costs now go through the books.

Also called machine tool people... No metric lathes for 4 weeks, but they will invoice me for this financial year. Hmmmm... bet they will. Right now I'm not keen on letting any company have my money unless I get the goods there and then. However unless I get this paid for before the end of the financial year, I won't help tax wise until January 2011. On the other hand I haven't got the work space ready and this stuff will just be sitting in crates getting in the way. Decisions, decisions.

Still one way and another things are moving along.

Now I have to sort out stuff to put on ebay to further finance my set-up costs.

Who's going to Reptile on Saturday?

Sometimes you got to take a chance. Why not get them to send you the invoice, then, when the item is in stock, take them the money and pick up the items? Or, collect an imperial one and don't uncrate it, then swop it for a metric one! No self respecting real steampunker would use metric anyway, its imperial measures that the Empire fought wars for, don't you know!
Yes, Iza goin ta "Reptile"!I have an assignation there ;-)

If imperial nuts and blots were easily available I probably would be working in feet, inches and the odd few thou.

I'll see if they will back date the invoice, probably going to the showroom next week... But I'm still worried about having all this stuff laying around in crates before I'm ready for it, not worth rushing into until the bench is finished and the storage underneath.
