Oh yea. I'm new but no fool. My Bro-in-Law is a master Machinist and also the manager for an indstrial pump manufacturer. He is old school taught, journeyman up from his father. He welds, fabricates and works as the mechanic. Already got him in on the idea and he's willing to do the hard part. All I have to do is lay out the design we all agree on and he'll put it together. I'm still working with him to finish the mods for my BSKD but they're coming along well.
Mike and I are pretty much figuring on starting out with the backyard event at the PigFest next year. That'll be our trial by fire so to speak.
