We've been demonstrating this weekend at the Chiltern Open Air Museum
A lady who was trying to sell some kind of electric massage cushions opposite us came over this morning and told us the following story :-
"My husband was laughing at you and taking the piss all day yesterday saying 'doesn't that guy know you can get electric lathes nowadays ?' etc all day on Saturday. Then the generator packed up which had been providing power for these massage cushions and he had to pack up at 4 o'clock while I was still working.
He had conceeded that I may have had a point and it was a salutary lesson for him . Plus I was getting healthy exercise and keeping warm pumping my lathe and I was getting paid to be there!
