has anyone on this group done any model gas or steam engine building or is this group more inclined for large machine repairing? I am new here as I kinda stumbled here by following some one else. By profession I was an automotive mechanic for 17 years, then got introduced to buildign and boiler room maintenance and repairs, So have spent my last 30 working years as a Power Engineer 3rd class
I had my own small basement machine shop with engine lathe, mill, floor mounted drill press and power hacksaw and cupboards full of accessories and hand tools.
My hobbies back then were building astronomical telescopes and model steam and gas engines.
I sold my house 6 years ago and now live in an apartment so had to sell all my machine tools, My other hobby for many years has been building and repairing desktop computers for family and friends.
