My name is Roger Taylor. I am a retired high school metal shop teacher with a very complete retirement workshop. I contribute an every-issue column to the Home Shop Machinist magazine under the byline: Old Retired Shop Teacher. I live in San Marcos CA about three miles from the Carlsbad, CA Joe Martin Craftsmanship Museum. That's one of my hangouts and I do outreach for them. I am close to completing a Phillip "Duclos, 6 Cycle Odd-Ball engine and will next tackle a George Genevro Crusader 60 aircraft engine. I had challenged my best advanced students to build a Genevro engine kit called the Titan 60. Unfortunately, we never got one to run correctly so I commissioned a YT provider, Mark Presling to build the last known kit on his channel. He did so and it now proudly adorns the entry case at the museum. BTW, if any forum folks attended Long Beach State College, Industrial Arts program, machine tool professor Dr. Genevro will celebrate his 100rd birthday soon. I have been working on a Kozo Hiraoka, Pennsy 3A engine and tender for the past 15 years. I recently discovered this forum and know that I will learn a lot from its content.
