    Hi, I've been a long way coming to this forum. I have a Taig lathe and access to a Jet 6 x 20 Mill-Drill, and an Atlas 6 inch Lathe (that needs a rehab). I'm a member of the Melbourne Makerspace and assist the other members with their projects that deal with metal. By no means am I an instructor, but more of an assistant. I have worked in several Machine shops over the years, and openly try to give my acquired knowledge to those who desire to make something out of metal. I enjoy making things too.

    Welcome to the forum from sunny Perth Jack. I've been meaning to check out a local makerspace but haven't gotten around to it yet.

    Hi, I'm a noob here, but not to the model Railroading community. I look forward to meeting new people and gaining valuable information from others from the live steam hobby.

    Hi, I've been on other general home machinist forums but just came across HMEM, which is great. I am a model airplane guy, RC and some old school CL. I've had a few engines that needed a fix here and there, or missing a piston, and maybe I can figure out how to get them airborne, again. I have an Atlas 10" lathe that I have been upgrading, lately. Really, very beginner skills at this point but no reason not to jump right in, right? I also have a StepCraft 840 to get up and going - haven't set it up yet. I have a simple rough milling setup but will consider doing the right thing about upgrading capabilities there. Perhaps a benchtop milling machine.
    Cheers - Poughkeepsie Pete

    Hi all,
    New to this site well new to any engineering site. I have just purchased a lathe and some tooling and was looking for a project (because you have to have a project).
    This site has more projects than you can shake a stick at so looks like staying with you a group of proper enthusiasts for years to come and hopefully share information and ideas. :thumbup:

    Welcome to the forum, you will indeed find lots of projects here. In fact, too many projects is a common problem for many members, myself included.

    The group is indeed awesome, the reason I tried my luck to find new friends. Kudos to the moderators for a job well done.
