    Hello everyone, my name is Norris, I live in South Wales, up near the heads of the valleys road, and I'm a retired engineer, although for the latter part of my working life I was a welder. My main hobby is paragliding,but when not doing that I can usually be found in my little workshop making swarf with my lathe or the milling machine. I make swarf out of aluminium and steel,and as a by product I also make all manner of things,like bolt action breeches for crosman pistols, muzzle brakes, triggers, uprated power valves, hand tightening knobs, and more recently butt hooks for the Anschutz Super Match 54, and also for a Steyr rifle from (excellent) drawing emailed to me by Zac, a senior member here. It was his suggestion that I sign into the site and introduce myself. Just made some locking rings to preserve the setting on the anshutz when the butt hook is removed but I will have a go at most little machining jobs. I am in the process also of setting up to do tig welding of stainless steel and aluminium. My email address is sheldon210@btinternet.com and if you want something making, modifying or repairing, drop me a line, or send me a picture. Hope to meet some of you in person over the coming months. I should add that although I've lived in wales for 25 years,I am a Yorkshire lad, so don't expect a taff accent if you phone me.

    Helloooooo Norris, mmmmm liking the name..... Norris, rolls off the tongue like mamas stew and dumplings.

    Welcome to the madhouse, you'll find i'm the only sane one here but don't worry they are not the dangerous crazy types, more the lovable rogue crazy types.

    Hmm, Norris is my proper name, and the one I get called more often, but I have two other christian names, or if you're from Yorkshire, two first names, which get used on official types of communications. I get called Thomas by my mother, my email programme and various others, but mostly it is Norris.
    The picture is me, or was me a year ago, but I got fed up spending a fortune on shampoo and hours drying my hair so I shaved it all off. I'll get round to changing it sometime. Thanks for the welcome.

    Well it's very nice to make your acquaintance Norris, I know what you mean about shampoo & drying, I couldn't be bothered with it either so cut my hair very short, in certain parts it almost looks like i'm going bold I cut it that short :).
