    I'd offer swaps for something interesting, but I can't think of anything I need.

    I know nothing about the Mk.2, but I do respect Colin's designs. I wonder how it would fare against the rather decent Sugden Optima integrated some bloke flogged me a while back?

    Blimey! That was quick.

    Yes, the warm up is very noticeable. It sounds OK'ish to start with, but after about ten minutes, it's like somebody flicked a switch and the magic starts! And just keeps getting better.

    Yeah. Good point, it does need a bit of breathing space, it runs warm.
