Help Support HMEM:

I've been "mechanically inclined" as long as I can remember. Ran a bike shop in my parents' garage from the age of 9 until I was 18, but tended toward a "hammer to fit, paint to match" approach. I did build my own chrome moly lugged bicycle frame when I was 15, but it didn't turn out so well. Learned a lot, however (silver brazing, hand filing and fitting tubes and lugs, fixturing, etc.)

Got a BS in metallurgical engineering, but focused on semiconductors. Have been fascinated by machining and metrology since I visited a neighbor's tool and die shop when I was a teen--the paradox of measuring tools to make tools to measure tools...

Enjoyed woodworking for many years, then got into metalworking when I built an AC Shelby Cobra replica a few years ago. Still very much a newbie when it comes to machining and model making.
