Hi guy's,  I  am what you would call a self taught engineer,  I  see in my mind what I want to bud then I tinker and build it, I am also a self taught drafter.  A have a small work shop in the house which does the job.

I second Ian's statement. Do you have a shop and an engineering background?

I really enjoy your posts.

Your construction and gearing systems are a real beautiful display. And how fast you get them together! My simple Guillows kit seems to be taking forever.
