Default What happens when one man makes his beloved hobby into his occupation?

Prepare to become jealous. Just what a cold iron hoarder needs to warm his heart up in the middle of a blizzard.... this should be like a kind of fairy tail for engine collectors.

Undoubtedly some of you know Joel Sanderson, an artist, machinist and a blacksmith with a passion for our kind of Iron(ic) history. I didnt know of him sadley because I let my GEM subscription run out a couple year ago, so I will let this video and his website tell the story...

Be prepared to spend some time here if you read the full site out and video presentation.... Enjoy...

Thumbs up Re: What happens when one man makes his beloved hobby into his occupation?

Thank you for posting this!! I have seen most of the videos but to get the story behind them and to see the shop is just fantastic ! ! Every since I first stumbled upon the video of the engine room and saw a belt going through the wall, I knew there had to be more to it but WoW!!!

A man doing his dream. Or is it my dream? For me it's only a dream. Thanks for the post. It's an inspiration for us all.
