Hi William,

How is life? Good I hope. I have a question for you. I am looking for english boxwood for engraving for woodprinting. The genus I have been given is 'Buxus Sempervirens'. Have you heard of this? Do you have any? They say the endgrain is the best for wood engraving.

came across this message when trundling around the net and thought i'd let you know that i have a small quantity of buxus sempervirens - max diameter about 4" which i'll never get around to using so if it is of use you are welcome to the three feet or so that I have. I live in north tipperary

Oooooooo Mr. noyce, I bet you just would give that 3ft of your boxwood to someone with no charge...that's 36 inches, you never mentioned it.... ::)

It might be thirty six inches but it's still never been used as a rule.
Other bits lying around the place if your interested - my place - not yours!
I am just talking about hand bits though!!??

Sorry to disappoint.

What you want - grubs??

How the devil are you anyway?
We don't work at HAH anymore, renting Brooks' old cottage at new pond for the time being, it's a funny old game, life.
Hope to catch up with you soon as middle age has done with us... ;)
