About John Rysdyk

There is a skill out there that is being lost. Computers and digital engineering skills are gaining ground to basic shills like manual machining, designing and drafting. Old style metal casting is only practiced by a few people. Learning how to machine any type of motor has a unique feeling when that machine comes to life. I want to share these basic skills with a younger generation and build a foundation of youth who are interested in taking this knowledge up to another level. The greatest revolution in history was the industrial revolution and it was through engineering and steam power that was developed that it came about.
Goals
$0 of $3,000 per month
Tooling, materials and machines to refurbish or rebuild parts for steam engines. Shop building upgrades for adequate power, lighting, and safety. Upgrades to the fundraising train, and supplies for the apprentice model engineering youth group.
