I know that this is an old thread but as I'm in the market for a fretsaw I wondered if anyone has anything to add by way of an update.
|Thread: Local model shops - do we support 'em?|
Sounds like you need a set of antiground magnets Myron, but it's nice to read of good service form Gliders, I must drop in on them next time I'm on the A1 and need a break; good advice is invaluable. The other aspect of supporting a LMS is finding the small components that maybe we would otherwise have difficulty finding since most website only advertise the more expensive lumps.
I think there are a number of factors at work here, as nation we buy cheap rather than quality, and we want it now, not tomorrow, so it is of little wonder that our shops are full of cheap imported goods. The trend is to visit our local shop to view the goods and then go home and order from an internet box shifter to get it even cheaper. However we do seem to expect our local shop to be there fully stocked and open all hours for the odd occasion that we need advice or help finding some obscure component that the box shifters are not interested in handling!
The old adage “use them or lose them” comes to mind.
|Thread: Another Returnee|
Thank you for your welcome. I must say that I’m finding the back issues of RCM&E a real help in bringing me up-to-date with the changes that have occurred since my last bout; some aspects are unchanged but on the other hand electric flight has made massive strides, and I think it is that area that attracts me the most.
It was a pleasant shock to find that buying my starter kit was a lot cheaper than anticipated based on my recollection of 1985 prices and income.
Now I need to identify a builders model, I don’t think I can take too much of this foam stuff.
I thought I should say hi. I’ve just returned to this pastime after an absence of about 25 years having realised that if I was ever to do any stick stirring again I had better be quick about it – the clock’s ticking. I joined a club and received an introductory flight on their trainer last weekend on a thing called a buddy lead; I assume that was to stop me wandering off with their trannie. Having check out the teacher I judged him able enough to have a go on my Wot 4e, just to make sure that I had put the stickers on the right way up you understand; then it was my turn; my aren’t they quiet! As with bike riding I don’t seem to have forgotten too much or if I have I don’t remember what it was. Flick rolls are a bit rusty though, and I thought that I should leave the rolling circles until next week or maybe the month after. I’ve subscribed to the digital edition of the magazine and am currently going through the back issues.
