Who wonders what the rest of the workshop looks like?

Yes, it can't be that pristine throughout surely?!!

Nice point there Jiff and Icey. The build corner is impossibly clean and bright. Now I'm curious too. :)

Indeed, there's a greasy workbench lurking about that shop somewhere.

We haven't seen anywhere one could properly bang on things with hammers, to date.

If we actually showed you the rest of the workshop we'd have to kill you all. It's just a big shed full of crap. If you've been watching very carefully, you've seen part of the rest of it where the bender, lathe, CNC mill are located. It's really not that exciting.

 Know your audience! We're the people who watch Blackhurst spot weld or grind for a minute! to you its just a big shed full of crap, to us it's a treasure trove.

I'm guessing the primary reason you've no address details on the website is because it'd become a virtual Mecca for petrol heads, who'd arrive with Tea bags, as "they were just in the area" (read as - "just drove 3 and half hours") and thought they'd pop in to see how binky was getting on and have a general chat. Thus leading to no work ever being done.... biggrin

 That wasn't a consideration when we first started this silly project as we figured a couple of hundred people might watch. In hindsight, it was a masterstroke!

I suspect they are unwilling to show you the rest of what they call a workshop as in reality the two people we see in the videos are like the stars in other reality shows, they are just highly paid liars who present other people's work. All the project graft is actually being carried out by the inhabitants of a sweatshop that we are not allowed to see, while the stars are eating caviar and swigging champagne that they pretend is tea...

I'm sorry but I had to, the world needs to be told about this evil empire. I'm currently working 28 hour days in the BoM sweatshop punching holes in the teabags the stars use during filming. BoM buy unperforated teabags for no reason other than to make my life miserable, and if I don't punch at least 5000 tea bag holes per hour they kill me, followed by a good telling off.

Oh no, how will I feed the children? Guess I'll have to go back to being a male gigolo at the old folks home to pay the bills. I wonder if Tom's Turbo Garage needs any teabags perforating?

 Yet another British understatement.

If I might be serious for a moment, you lads have created a wonderful thing ... and I'm not talking about Binky or any one of the jigs you've made.

Your Binky Youtubes have blown the freakin' DOORS off of "Reality TV", especially AMERICAN Reality TV which is neither reality nor TV and not very good at all, but I digress. 

Project Binky, the Youtube series, is damn good fun in the finest tradition of British Humo(u)r ranging from the Carry On movies of long ago through Monty Python all the way to Benny Hill (if only you had some nude women).

You don't need a plasma cutter or a power washer.  What you REALLY need is an agent to get this thing out to more people.  Yes, it's THAT good.

That's very kind of you to say Ted.

Ted does have a point, the amount of people at work who have been instructed to dip into the project binky videos and then been hooked is staggering. I come in on a morning and people say things like "watched 6 episodes last night."

We need another episode though to feed our obsession!
