    Optimistic sellers

    The Bucket Foundry

    Thread Starter: Yow Ling

    The foundry or metal casting stuff thats been going on the the ESE thread really inspired me to get on with having a go at this stuff. If you can cast metal theres really not much you cant do.

    Tiger 100

    Thread Starter: Voltaire

Fortunately I'm a member of the VCC so it was easier. Turns out...
