    It is a sad day for a man when a much loved machine tool has to go to a new
    home. But for (now at least) WUN seems to have 'space at the rear' for
    Cane's huge tool.
    The hiab truck driver we hired to collect the milling machine performed
    miracles with the hiab. This being all of *14 Fucking Metres* long at full
    extension and _still_ picked the ton or so of cast iron mill up as though it
    was a child's toy..
    I have jsut got to get me one of those!
    Cheers again Nigel.

    Oh yes. Oh yes indeed. What an *amazing* bit of kit.

    You're most welcome. I shall now get my bloke organised, and re-open
    negotiations with that nice Mr Cane.


    Do they even *make* that much Stella?

    They were the tool of choice for banger racers.

    Very useful for straightening cars for the next round by the simple
    expedient of lashing one end of the car to the truck and pulling the
    other with the Hiab. Until one, apocraphyl, day the lashings broke
    resulting in a MII Granada sailing across the pits.

    At least he's had plenty of time to come terms with his impending loss.

    out of the ground. And slinging large lumps of wood around..
