Hi from down under
« on: November 19, 2021, 07:06:59 AM »
G'day to you all.  I'm from the Great Southern Land and into machining.  Thought I'd try my hand at model steam engines, just for the fun of it.  I've started on a simple wobbler and hopefully will have it finished soon.  Looking forward to learning lots from you mob and hoping to be able to contribute a bit too. 

Cheers,

Paul.

Hi Paul, welcome to the forum from another from the great South Land.  Of course, itís a big place, so do you care to be a bit more specific about where you are from?

Looking forward to hearing about what you are making.

Thanks for all the kind welcomes.  I think I'm going to enjoy this site. 

MJM460, I'm near Wagga Wagga and I'm in the process of making a wobbler similar to the one in your avatar.  Nearly finished but waiting on some parts to complete it.

The old dog on the tuckerbox at Gundagai.  Know it well.  I went the other way, grew up in Sydney then moved down this way about 36 years ago.  Have to admit that I don't miss the big smoke one little bit  :)
