Default Hi all,

I'm Rudy, from Norway.
Think I will like being among you at this forum.
I have been very fasinated by model engines since I could walk. Have always been making and mending things. As a kid I always had an eye for pieces of junk that fitted together that could make a piston and cylinder.
So now, 57something years after my first step, I have ordered a lathe and a millilng machine. Can't remember this feeling since I was a kid the days before Christmas. Santa is on he's way..
I have already bought a casting kit for s Stuart 10V. I have been at the YouTube High School and learned a lot. My plan for this build will be about accuracy. I will go nuts about making it more accurate than just "well made". I'm inspired by my first experience when I installed a motor driven satellite dish without having to adjust it when the signal was turned on. I was so keen on making it right that I actually got it right. The same with this build. I want to make it right, not destroying these delicate parts.
In my work with electronic development I am used to handle the terms of accuracy and inaccuracy. How they apear and how to controll them. Much of this way of thinking can easily be applied to mechanics. So this will be my contribution. High stakes, but thats me.
I'll make a thread about it.
