Default Hi from the UK

Hi everyone.

I'm from Liverpool, 31 years old have 7 kids.

Love to keep myself busy and like to learn new things.

Currently building a small wood workshop and trying my hand at arc welding.

Recently bought a lister d stationary engine and at a recent rally found a onan generator it was sold as in working order and I thought it would make a nice project and after some research I stumbled into here.

Not sure what else to say really so shall leave it there and get posting my problems with the onan.

You hear people saying they didn't know they were pregnant till one popped out well we used to laugh at those people...

Then it happened to us quite a few times, our last baby for the four months before she was born the doctors didn't even know despite many check ups... Which along with other issues was the reason why she was born in the car on the way to hospital as my partner was feeling very unwell.

All part of life's journey I guess.

As for spare time i get enough and at the minute due to babies difficulties I don't need to look for work for the near future...

So building myself a small shed. Tidying garden for kids then make the basement into a man cave.
