I’m an American Expat who’s thoroughly enjoying retirement in the tropical paradise of Thailand.

My formal education is in Electronic Engineering. I have Zero formal machine shop training, but I’ve pursued hobby machining most of my life. I appreciate engines of all types but my focus has always been on turbines, both gas and steam. Yes, I have an incurable case of “turbine-itus”.

As I settled into my retirement, I designed and built my own slant-bed CNC lathe and a CNC milling machine which I now use to build my various “toys”, such as my current project; a 3 stage axial flow “steam” turbine. I will post more about this ongoing project in the PLANS and BOILERS sections of this forum. I'm looking forward to discussions with those members with far more experience than myself.
