Hello, there, to evryone. I'm another new guy to this group, in more ways than one. The last time I had any expirience with metal machining was in high school.(20+ years ago) I am an electrician by trade but like to tinker with just about evrything. I just got a smithy 3-1 to help with my creativity... now I just have to learn how to use it.... I'm sure that most of your projects are a bit out of my reach for now, but I've always been one to jump into the deep end. and here I am. While on a service call a few months ago, the customer had a magazine that caught my eye. It was a quarterly that covered model steam engines. Each volume had a set of plans, specs, and other info on materials and equipment. I've been looking on-line for anything that would help get me started with a simple project. It looks as though i've found a place with answers. and WOW do I have Questions. so thank you in advance for all the help.
