Hello from S.E. Louisiana USA
« on: November 11, 2023, 04:45:39 PM »
Hello, I'm a retired river boat captain that has recently traded hobbies due to health. Went from RC planes to steam engines.

Hi RedJack,
Welcome to the forum!  That sounds like quite the fun profession - River Boat Captain!  Sounds like lots of stories there ;)

What kind of project are you looking at now?  Would love to see pictures of your shop too.  You can post a thread on your shop over in the "My Workshop" section of the forum so we can all see where you work/play.

Kim

I'm working on, from what I've been told, an early model of a Stuart No 9. I'm changing over from rc planes to the steam engine. I don't have a milling machine, or lathe. So, I'm hoping to find someone close to give me a hand in the machining if any is needed. Here's a picture of my project.

Looks like a fun project!  I'm sure there are many people here who could offer you advice on the engine.  I've not made a Stuart, but many people on this forum have.

Hello Redjack, and Welcome! I enjoyed building and flying RC airplanes for a number of years, but have been away from it for another number of years!
Regards,
Ron
