The tale of two lathes.

This morning I received confirmation that the two lathes that Bob Abell had for sale in the "For Sale" section, had  been collected last night. Bob donated them for free after hearing what they were going to be used for .
What a good, kind gesture that was.
Here is the comment I got as well.

Nick Forder Curator of Land and Air Transport at MOSI (Museum of Science and Industry in Manchester) expressed his sincere thanks to Etherow club member Bob Abell. Bob generously donated two lathes for the benefit of young engineering volunteers and technical crews working at MOSI.
Bob is to be a special guest of the museum and hopes to see his machines put to good use.

A good bit of advertising for the club as well, Bob.
