What do you want to learn and/or build?

I want to further my research in the Propulsion Breakthrough area and up until my recent marriage separation and impending divorce I was fortunate enough to afford my own small machine shop. That has changed. But I'm still determined to proceed with the research.

What skills do you have and what are you willing to teach?

I am a precision manual machinist, Tool & Diemaker, welder, Mechanical Engineer (no degree) with lots of experience designing specialized metal working equipment. I am also self taught and very fast with AutoDesk Inventor Solid Modeling CAD. I would be willing to share any skill knowledge I have as long as it did not overly consume the time I have available to do my own research and proof of concept prototype building. I am in a position to perhaps help out with procuring a manual milling machine and perhaps a manual lathe if this would work out to benefit all involved.


I am researching for a breakthrough in "Propulsion" ( as in rocketry not perpetual motion) I have already had the grand tour of TX/RX and visited briefly with Roland and Mark. I am very impressed with the dedication shown at TX/RX.
