Aidan Talbot school for gifted gearbox rebuilding

Postby jebiga41 » 30 Jul 2017, 08:51

Just catching up after my serving some of my apprenticeship with Aidan it's a strict regime of 5.30-6 am starts a vegan diet (one must aquire vegan powers https://youtu.be/SFCAcQxmYDI Welsh beer. Gearbox oil and brake cleaner. ;) it was a truly humbling experience tand an honour to be the the recipient of so much knowledge which im still trying to process.Aidan truly has managed to distill all the processes involved in the stripping cleaning and rebuild of our gearboxes into a fine art through years and years of practise and has forgotten (although I don't think he forgets!) More han most of us would aspire to gather in our lifetimes on this area. I would like to hank Aidan so much for his hospitality both towards myself and Caterina during herror visit and his unending patience with me when I either looked blankly at him or asked some stupid questions of which I'm sure there were many. I hope was some help and didn't cause much of a disturbance in the workshop (at least I didn't spill 4.5 litres of dirty diesel oil on the floor this time and I think I left all the tools in the right places :) to sum up it was an amazing experience and I have learno so much and still have loads more to learn so to quote Arnie https://youtu.be/WgPePk3kGZk
Again thank you Aidan for this opportunity you are a gentleman and a scholar and a man of discerning taste and when it comes to gearboxes you are unequalled IMHO, although I am quite worried about his extreme dislike of squirrels and dogs although mice seem to prove to worthy opponents :) Thanks again Aidan
