Default Hello from the Grand State of Maine!

Hi everyone, the site was reccomended to me by an acquaintance. I've always been interested in old iron and there are some really neat engines on here. My main hobby is foundry work, sandcasting in particular, and I am capable of doing cast iron. I am making some parts for the Lombard Log Hauler at the Maine Forestry and Logging Museum at Leonard's Mills in Bradley, Maine, amongst about a million other projects. I will be casting them soon and will post pics as I do so. I am also willing to do castings for others, either reproductions of existing parts or I can make up a pattern if all you have is a drawing (within reason, I probably couldn't do an engine block yet...). Best of all I work pretty cheap, since I am still teaching myself the craft.
Pete from Odd Duck Foundry

Hey Bruce! Yup, it was probably you. Are you coming Thursday on the grand expedition to the old boiler? I'm looking forward to it, it keeps growing people every email I get about it. And for those who wonder what the heck I'm talking about, I'll make sure I take some pics and post on it in the appropriate section. Should be interesting to folks on here.
