Who are these strange fellows?

Manbench Industries; Purveyors of general mayhem since 1994, a blog to follow the crazed, possibly deranged projects and emotive musings, of an undergraduate engineer, and an apprentice organ builder who have always felt they were born in the wrong age. Follow us as we, re-write history, learn lost skills, discover strange new worlds, break things, rant at things, mend things, make new things and generally find ways of passing the day instead of doing "proper work" !

Emma I - A Memorial

It's been over a year now since we lost our trusty workhorse Emma I, and whilst Emma II has proved a worthy supplement, MBI will never forget the charm and all round fun of the Emma the first.

From her humble beginnings in "red and rust", we soon transformed her to a noble military beast.

Sadly her age caught up with her, and when disaster struck I couldn't spend the time to repair her myself, or afford to pay for someone else to. Still hopefully she can now bring someone else the joy she brought us.

Emma I was a noble and reliable workhorse for us at MBI serving as transport for our ridiculous projects on a number of occasions! Many a good time spent in her, as well as tinkering with her. (hopefully that doesn't sound too weird!)

 A moment of silence to remember a truly great friend.

She was the boy. Chief. 

The Carpenter.
