The Society of Gadgeteers and Inventors

Well a second welcome to all who want to join. Here you will find an open discussion group that I would like to see take off into a group that meets and greets regularly.

Here you can post the following in discussions:
-Materials for common or shared designs
-Paint schemes and styles
-General ideas for designs
-Questions to help design
-And generally anything else to do with design, implementation or parts salvage in the area.

All discussions are welcome too. However, the main focus of SGI is to bring together the people that make things happen, to brainstorm and generally idea board new creations. As it is, make yourself at home in SGI.

Speaking of gadgets.... 

I finally got the new book up and running. And since I wanted to try something different to introduce it, I decided to let my over the top, serio-comic villain be the official spokesperson. You can see it here:

Mr. Goddard, Brilliant!
What is the engine that you made it from?  Or was it a compressor?
