I've seen others post their other interests, so I guess it's okay for me to do so here. Never know if others have question or need help with these of hobbies.
1. Narrow Gauge Scale locomotives and rolling stock: Narrow gauge railroads were used in the US west for both lumber and mining companies. The narrow trains allowed them tighter radius to get through mountainous areas. See images of some of my examples, I model
HOn3 and On30 scales.
2. Vacumm Tube Ampliffiers: In WWII, my dad was in the Navy and worked in the sonar labs and also taught electronics to the enlisted. When I was about 13, he taught me Tube electronics and I scratch built
my first amp, a stereo and guitar smp combo. This was back in about '64 when solid state was just starting to take over. Now I experiment, design and build
guitar amps as music
ians have discovered how much better they sound. I hard wire everything.
More to come as I have more hobbies in addition to build
