Posted:'lo,

have updated the first post in the thread for general information purposes, i did it from my head, so i think i covered everybody but if i forgot you i'm sorry, shout it out!

Also anyone got any other relevant information to go on there e.g. pitman - little devils?, and gizmo, any less vague information about your workshops, and anybody what finds a shop selling equipment, or anything of any other relevance to the world of poi in Wales and they think it should be on there... let me know.
