I have tennis elbow I think. I have had it for a few weeks now and even though its pretty slight, it is starting to annoy me. You would think with all the hammering etc, that would have done it, but no. It was a machete, I was clearing a lot of brush in the garden that I had been putting off for years and I used a small folding saw for the bigger stuff and a machete for clearing and clearing small branches etc. I noticed it a few days after and just thought little of it and thought it would fade in a couple of days. It has stuck around though. I have done some forging, nothing too heavy and seemed to have managed all right. So I will just have to play it by ear but I have a real hammering urge at the moment.

Well, I have been procrastinating long enough. I had a web site a while back but I really did not spend any time on it. This time around I have (I hope) made a better effort. I am not a computery person so its been hard work and has take a silly amount of time to get it to the condition that it is on now. Its not fully finished, I have a few more bits to do like I have to integrate Paypal and a shopping cart in there if I can work out how to do it. Please have a look. It can be found at

I sold a blade to a good chap in Phoenix Arizona a while back. I shipped it out to him on the 2nd of March, he mailed me and said it never came. So we sorted it out between us and thought the matter had ended. Today, this morning the blade came back, still in its packaging with a Big red Royal mail sticker saying there was no one to receive it. The odd thing is the royal mail don't deliver in the USA but the United States postal service does so why does it have a UK royal mail sticker on it saying there was no one to receive it?....Most odd.
