I retired from Albion College after 39 years
of service. I started building a Zenith CH-701 about 2 years before I retired.
After three years of building, I did the first test flights of N73EX. I
am now building items that other builders of Experimental Aircraft have found
most useful. I sold N73EX and it is now being flown in Hershey PA. I enjoy
working in the shop, and building airplane parts for others.
I purchased parts and built my own CNC
Milling Machine. I also have a small Precision Lathe. Using this equipment I
am producing a line of parts for other Experimental Aircraft Builders.
I am a member in my
local EAA Chapter 304 in Jackson MI. Have consulted and worked with many other
Zenith builders, helping them with their projects.
I have been a Ham Radio operator for many years, WB8BGY.
I enjoy PSK-31 and other Modes.
I enjoy going to Fly-Ins and looking at any
kind of airplane. My wife Barbara and I have two Daughters, 4 Grand Children
and 5 Great Grand Children. I love building and fixing computers, as well as bringing older test equipment back to life, and seeing it go back into useful service.
