James, that's a good one but be so careful with any sort of strike, joke or otherwise, to the neck as they can kill. Get it wrong and you can go through the carotid artery.

It's the technique we practice with the utmost care when training because it can be lethal.

If I'd have bought what I saw there and really wanted then yes, a trailer would have definitely been needed James, and a crane :wink:

It was a CNC milling machine. Only £11,000 8-)

I would love a milling machine. I could do so much with one...

Not that kind of milling machine Steve! Although to me it could be very useful if I wanted to be 'Dusty Miller' :wink:

Richard, I didn't sleep well last night and got up and browsed the 'net for a bit. It did the trick :)

James, I'd love to be able to grind my own flour :D I really could say I'd baked from scratch then and even better if I could grow my own wheat!

I heard that you were removed from the Wheeler Dealers stand for trying to hump Mike Brewers leg. Is that true?

Now you know why I didn't sleep well last night... Police cells are a bit uncomfortable :twisted:
