Subject: [CR]Any UK members know Mike Baker?

I'm thinking of buying a frame from Mike, who is based in Wales, and was wondering if anyone has done any business with him. He seems a really nice lad and appears to be very genuine. However, it's always a bit of a gamble buying a frame with just a few photographs to go by so confirmation would be nice.

Mike was telling me that he has been restoring frames for 40 years and always uses Tekaloid coach paint brushed on. When I expressed some surprise, he said the finish is superb. I fancied giving this a go to see what it is like. Again, has anyone tried this technique or have they seen Mike's work?

Cheers,
Bruce
