It’s become a bit of a tradition to hold the last meet of the year at Phil’s as our Christmas GTG.
A great cold meat lunch was provided and everyone thoroughly enjoyed Phil’s hospitality.
Phil must be one of our more extreme DIYers! Along with a gaggle of high end equipment other components have been built with mush love, care and quite a bit of highly technical input to product a one-off system of distinction.
Hidden deep within all that extremely dense hard wood supports are very precisely position bearing supports to help isolate everything.
Many thanks to Barry H for taking the pictures. He is the new official QAC photographer.
