    Default Hi there from Adelaide

    Hi there, I'm a new member here. I live near Adelaide, South Australia, I'm retired and have had a life long interest in engineering.
    The machine shop (black hole according to the boss) is a home for a Sieg C3 (7" x 14" mini lathe), a Sieg X2 (mini mill), and a Russian 3" lathe, the one with the round bed.
    My main interest is making small i.c. engines, specifically model aeroplane engines. I may have attached some photos of some recently finished motors, the result of about 6 years work on and off. I'd never make money in production!!
    cheers

    Welcome to the forum Bill.
    I fear you are going to be incredibly popular here with pics uploaded in your very first post.
    Can't wait to see some of your work.
