Hello all;
Last time here was perhaps 2014 ish. Things happened, sold my tools. But now have replacements :)
Never finished a PM 3A I started...lol. Got caught up in 22 rimfire builds which went well.

But more interested in IC.
Looking around for a pretty basic IC build. Hit an Miss are quite cool.

In the meantime, ordered a replacement part for the PM3 (actually the whole kit - so will have many spares lol) and a PM #2.
Am very much an amateur, trying to rank up to hobbyist :)
For conversation sake, new tools are both Grizzly, G0750G lathe and G0755 Mill.

PS if anyone Psychic knows where I misplaced my wes pettinger pump casting kit let me know Hint it is in a box. LOL.

Best Regards,
Bryan

Welcome back Bryan. A first I.C. that gets a lot of love is the Webster but you might also consider the Kerzel hit and miss as it doesn't seem overly difficult (I've never built one but played with one a bit). Both plan sets are freely available and they're both bar stock which is an easier (and cheaper) route than castings.

Welcome back, Bryan! I do happen to know exactly where your casting kit is - it is right next to all those tools and parts that I KNOW I have ... somewhere ...
