I am retired and living near Rochester, NY (Henrietta). I have been a manufacturing jeweler, machinist (manual and 1980's CNC), and modelmaker, but spent most of my career in Quality Assurance. I have a 9" South Bend lathe, Atlas horizontal mill, drill press, band saws, etc. I have been building live steam engines as a hobby for about 30 years. I built a 1/5 scale Shay - runs on propane. I am currently building a 1/8 scale 4-8-0 camelback locomotive. I run my engines at the Finger Lakes Live Steamers, near Clyde, NY. I recently designed and built a Rose Engine Lathe for making geometric patterns in exotic wood. I have also been making woodwinds - mostly recorders.
