New Member from the USA
« on: May 29, 2021, 05:52:15 PM »
Hello everyone,

I would like to say a warm hello to everyone in this group, I am very excited to have been able to join. I am a chemist in profession and a hobbyist in my free time. Machining has always and will always be extremely fascinating for me as well as being able to share my experience and road bumps along the way. Looking forward to a rewarding experience.

I am currently working on a Westbury 10cc Seagull engine. Its been sitting in a display case for the last 20 years and needs some love. Everything seems to be there except for the distributor cap, so that is where I am currently stuck at.

Hi Roger, thank you for the warm welcome. Every once in a while, I end up with some successful machining. Most of it is learning and figuring out how to make it work. Im always happy for the experience.
