If you recall this was the vehicle that Mike Mancini contacted me to have a Broadcast sheet made for. He told me they only wanted to use for display purposes with the car because the original owner couldn’t find the “real” one at that particular time.

About Art

55 years old. By training, ability and experience I am a master toolmaker. My most recent projects include designing and building a process to grind a G rotor pump shaft with four diameters and holding all four diameters within plus or minus 4 microns of nominal. This was an automated process using two centerless grinders refitted to my specifications using automatic load and unload machines plus automatic feedback gauging. I also designed and built an inspection machine to check for the presence and size of a straight knurl on a hinge pin using a vision system for non-contact gauging.
