My name is Tom (19) and I am a member of the Southampton Club and a fairly new one to this forum.
I started model engineering around 2 years ago, when I bought my first lathe (Emco Unimat SL) and just practiced turning, drilling, cutting threads and much more. I do not own a miniature Locomotive at present, but I do look after one of the clubs. I do own however some 16mm Live Steam Locomotives, which I run in the garden. I'm still very much a beginner to the hobby, but I am always learning by doing the job or watching others. So far I have made several regulator handles, a "pop" safety valve for a Mamod and the odd adapters.
My other hobby is the Electric Guitar. I have made about 6 so far (not from scratch) and I play in a band.
