      Nice to meet you last night Rob, good to find someone else on the Derbyshire side of the border! Let's hope for a similar type of evening at Belper, before the nights get too light,
      Cheers

      Hi Graham, apologies for contacting you on your profile but sorry I have lost the topic re servicing my mount on this forum?
       
      After your recent sound advice, I was looking just for a service and wondered how long it would take to do?  If just a few hours, I wondered if I could pop the mount down to you and watch your expertise as I would not have a clue stripping it down, service, re greasing and reassembly?  Would this be possible do you think?
       
      You can contact me on 07528 622266 if you like but I understand if this is not possible though.
       
      Hope your recovery continues
       
      Kind Regards
       
      Julian
