Other Technical Interests

Electric Vehicles

I have had a long time interest in electric vehicles and renewable energy. I have built two electric vehicles including a small scooter and a roadster. Both are suitable for around town errands and the roadster is also used for short highway trips. I have also restored and upgraded several older production electric vehicles.

I belong to the Electric Auto Association (EAA) and participate in rallies and shows that they sponsor. I also participate in the EV Internet Discussion List and promote EV charging and infrastructure locally.

Manufacturing & Machining

Manufacturing techniques and processes, both modern and old, is another area of interest for me. In the past, I have experimented with Computer Numerical Control (CNC) as it relates to CAD. I have followed rapid prototyping techniques since the processes were developed in the mid 1980's.

A more recent interest is old machine and inspection tools. I try to equip my shop with some of the more classic and vintage tools and equipment that can still produce work to modern, tight tolerances; mostly American made tools from the 1920's through the 1960's.
