Default Do you have a use for a machinist?

I came to RC Universe a couple of years ago to market some of my dads airplane stuff. I am not into this hobby myself. I am into machine work as a hobby. I have been pondering my next project and thought there may be some common ground between our hobbies. Do you frequently find need to have things machined? If so, what types of things?

You might try offering up some services to the Waco Brotherhood. Down in the Antique/Golden Era section here on RCU there is a huge thread for Waco Biplanes. There has been a problem getting suitable landing gear hardware, both main and tail wheel. Usually looking for something that has shock absorbing qualities. You might also look in the Warbirds section. Hope this helps.
