I find the biggest difference between now and then is that if you managed to hurt yourself back then you were a numpty and had the p*ss taken out of you .

If you hurt yourself nowadays, it absolutely has to be someone else's fault .

sad really....

Thanks HughN, that's a fantastic post. You can almost smell the swarf and cutting oil, feel the heat and cover your ears to the noise. Fantastic.

Think that's the reason I love trailers - they're still so... I don't know, old fashioned? Agricultural? Love it, thanks again.

Makes me feel kind of sad looking at those photos and then looking at the mess we are in now.
