Hi i just wanted to introduce myself  I live in a little town called Cleveleys just outside Blackpool, I am new to all things old and wanted something to keep myself busy for when i retire.  So i bought a vice earlier this year to see if i had the skills to take it apart put it together and move it on which i did with th emoney i made,  I bought a couple of vintage compressors and some old tools did those up and moved them on so I though i can do this and recently retored my redundent Garage which is now  a 24ft workshop with all the tools i need to restore most projects ...I have aquired some old tools this year and need to focus on them to keep me busy over the winter.  Curently working on a vintage Autograph compressor but the engine was shot so started looking at stationery engines came across a Villiers Wx11 LZH that had been left to the elements but thought id give it a go, I also bought a Villers Mk 10, Lister D and old JAP motor and enjoying restoring them...So thats a little bit about me and I hope it helpsNew member from Blackpool  Aerost11

Hi and a warm welcome to the forum. Please start a new topic in New Projects/Restorations when you get going.
You can post more pictures but only three at a time. Please try to keep them relevant to the thread. Smile Wink
