    This us fabulous news, well done Neal.

    Neal has consistently demonstrated his willingness to help LJN members and Etesia users.
    I'm sure others will agree he's a tremendous asset for Etesia...I just hope he still has time to come on the forum:)

    Well done Neal. You are one of the most helpful, efficient and pleasant people to do business with. I will continue my support for Pellenc knowing my interests are looked after by Neal.

    Excellent well done Neil just hope they gave you that whopping pay rise to go with it. However as you are not smiling in the picure may be not :-)

    But seriously, I for one really appreciate all your help and expert assistance. You are a credit to Etesia, just a shame more companies don't follow your example and support the guys on the ground.

    Thanks every one for the good comments

    I will always have time to cram in some Ljn into my day (bit of a routine now)

    As for the smile I save that for when no cameras are around as there is less chance of being cought on one lol

    The new position I'm in although brings more work will also increase my ability to give a better service to dealers and users as I'm going to be on ground zero more with face to face feedback and a more direct contact with customers

"You're right Geoffrey,  locking when I don't want them to can be a pain sometimes. Especially when wearing gloves. It would be great to have a go with all of the secateurs mentioned on this thread."

The Okatsune secateurs don't appear to have a left handed option. In fact the cheapest left han…"
