04/08/2010 Back Online! Milk Float Corner is back after a few days of downtime caused by the domain registrar failing to remind me to renew the domain, and it expiring. Sorry about that! I have now transferred the domain to a more reliable registrar, so hopefully it should not happen again.
Also, apologies for the lack of updates recently. I have a few updates pending, but never seem to find time to update the site these days.
20/02/2007 Documents Service Manual covering a number of Crompton/Morrison floats added.
22/12/2006 For Sale The list of floats for sale has been moved to a separate page.
17/12/2006 Lost Updates rediscovered! When I took over this site from Dave Root a couple of years ago, I only had an old archive version to work with. Some of the more recent updates were therefore lost - until now! Dave recently discovered his copy of the final version of the site, before it was taken down, and I have now re-integrated all of those updates into the current site. Here is a summary of the changes. Many thanks Dave for sending me the archive!
