Hi all,

Pete here from California. Have been doing machining since I was 12 (am 53 now). I'm currently involved in an interesting project of a scale engine that someone else is building so have no immediate plans to build anything myself, but it all interests me.

I'm in the wire edm business now (probably more accurate to call it my passion, not my business... seeing what the current state of the economy is), though I have a fairly complete shop -- lathes, mills, gear cutting equipment, hone, saws, etc. etc.

I've posted a few photos and more of what I do in the "Specialist" section here.

Thanks for having this Forum!

Hope everyone has an enjoyable holiday season!

Hello all,

Newbie member here, I'm really just starting to re learn machining skills that I learned during my apprenticeship. I have the Chester model B and I'm keen to get on and do something useful with it. My main hobbies are model boats and aircraft, I'm also interested in old motorbikes, having recently restored two old Garellis.
My brother is a bit of a whizz with a lathe so I'll be getting some tuition there. I've had a quick look at some of the posts on here, fantastic stuff. I particularly like the marine engines.
For a living I'm an airframes/propulsion technician.
Looking forward to chatting and learning from you fellers. Great forum.

Rockets.
