Welcome to the forum Jason.
There's a Welcome thread here. Tell us a little about yourself and what you're interested in building.

I'm Chuck, from E. Tennessee. I have a 7x14 lathe and this weekend will pick up an X2 mill in PA on my way to NY for Family Christmas. I have not yet built an engine, other than a plastic see through V8 as a youngster. I hope to build a ffew soon as a milling learning exercise.
I recognise many names here as members of other boards. Great folks. Looking forward to improving my mill and learning.

Welcome to the forum Chuck.

(I've always wanted to build one of those see-through V-8s. Only managed the Visible Man.)

Ah yeah, they've sure simplified that thing over the years. It used to have an electric starter motor, and working distributor firing little 'grain-of-wheat' bulbs in each cylinder.
