I was a machinist contractor.
For the last 20 years of my career.
I did prototyping final assembly and production work on cnc and manual
Machinery. It was a very satisfying job.

Here is a barn find 1/4 size Case
traction engine I have found.
It has a commercial made boiler
and the engine assembly seems to be well built. Some items have to be redone.
It still has a lot of work to be done but I hope to be far enough along to
have the boiler inspected by April
Inspection time.
