there are several constraints on my builds / projects.

1. Being built from Government Pocket Money - ie OAP
2. Lack of facilities - lock up garage with [ currently ] no power and only recently a leak free roof !
3. Lack of practical skills - welding, turning, machining etc and also lack of any pals with such skills / facilities !

So, in general it has to be what I can find / alter to suit my needs. Yes, leads to compromise, but it WILL get built.
