If I am buying any English brands I tend to go for the Hamlet 2060 . They seem to hold their edge over  the others this is particularly important due the number of hardwood species I come across. But as said, stick to known reputable brands and you wont too far wrong.

Living near Bristol, your local club is Avon & Bristol Woodturners, who meet in Filton on the north side of the city on the 3rd Thursday of the month.  Next 3 meetings feature excellent demonstrators Gary Rance, Les Thorne and Mick Hanbury.  For details see website :

The last time I went to Yandles was last week to buy some wood for a demo over the Easter weekend. One of the most expensive trips I have ever had there as I blew a valve on the way home and it is going to cost mega bucks to get it fixed.
