Re: Work bench / table

If money and space are no object, in a professional environment I use a probike electro-hydraulic lift. They are excellent, and I cannot find fault with them. Aside from them costing around £1800. At home I have a very good lift, the backbone of which being a trolley jack. Dad kindly donated this to...

Re: Newbie question

PR is a 1956 swinging arm frame, MD is a 1956 KH 500 twin engine. The only way of telling if they left the factory together is to check the archives.

Re: Draganfly poor service

I have never had a staff member be rude or unhelpful, they are always a good source of hard to find parts (as are the AOMCC spares organisers, available to club members), a total lifeline, and where else are we going to get parts? I know that they have been very busy through the pandemic, as people ...
