I am 76 years of age and have been retired for 24 years. I worked for Big Blue as a computer engineer for 30 years.While working my main hobby was collecting antique woodworking tools and making one third scale copies of many of the rarest tools. I would usually make between 25 to 100 copies of the miniatures.
Three years ago the fire in my belly for making tools had burn out and I was looking for a new miniature venture and decided to make some miniature Kentucky longrifles. I bought a Jim Chambers early Lancaster kit and have spent the last eighteen months making the parts and tooling that will enable me to mass produce miniature rifles in the quantities I did with the miniature tools.
