    Hello all, first post. I am a semi retired early mid 50's fella that is slowing down fast but am also finding I am really enjoying my home machine shop. Have mostly been a fabricator in my shop in the past to support my drag racing but the addition of a Grizzly G4003 lathe a few years ago got me interested in machining and I have just recently added a Bridgeport mill as well. The more I get into it the more I like the machining of pieces and parts. These small engine really have my attention. I would like to start out small as I am building a simple wobble cylinder air motor of my own design to help hone my skills and drive the purchase of a few more commonly used machinist tools.

    I am headed solo to the NAMES "North American Engine Society" show in Detroit Mi. next weekend about a 5 hour drive to the north. Maybe I will cross paths with someone else here.

    Welcome to the forum. Lots of stuff here to turn your interest into a full blown addiction. I envy you getting to NAMES, it's beyond my reach at the moment.

    Would be good to meet you at the NAME next weekend. Prepare to be awed if you have not been to a NAME before. I understand there will be a table area for HMEM interested parties. Look for an old guy wearing a brown cap and a blue chambray shirt. Hope to see you there.
