Welcome to the Milldrawings web site, which is rebuilt from the old a0 Technical Drawing Services site

My name is John Brandrick.

I live in Whitland, Carmarthenshire, S.W.Wales. I am a retired Draughtsman/Engineer I worked in the construction & process industries for over 50 years and was very lucky as drawing had always been my hobby and I was able to do it almost every day during my working life
