 Seriously, I hooked up with the Midwest Railway Preservation Society here in Cleveland OH. They're rebuilding a 1918 steam locomotive among other things. Turns out they're looking for a lot of help with the machining end of things. So now I get to make parts for a real steam engine.

 Check them out.

If ypu want to know what God thinks about money just look at who he gave it to !

Sounds like fun. Do you have your own shop?
I didn't know you were in Cleveland... the cradle of Great Lakes industry... or perhaps the rocker if you think about Buffalo.
I love the history there and have read every book written on the creation of the Erie Canal... a monumental engineering achievement.
Too bad it didn't last... undone by the railroad just a decade or so after opening.
Show us pictures of the parts you are making.
