Default Well ..........

Here I am folks, after all 2 weeks of lurking around I am in the Team. I love reading the forum especially the DIY stuff!

For a small intro -

Name - Irfan
Place - bangalore -R.T.Nagar
Status - apart from being married - nothing
Education - post graduate
Field - Mechanical
Working as - Senior Engineer with Satyam in their Engineering services.
Hobbies - OK THIS IS THE BIG ONE

I build hovercrafts : Home
Sev club of bangalore
Home

Then I started with CNC machines
My steel frame small router (Madvac Inspiration) - CNCzone.com-The Ultimate Machinist Community

I am married with a cute son for my recreation : me and him connect a lot and he's just 2.

Presently I dont any car - but I wanna own one Marshall 4wd to drag my hovercraft along(when I build a new one). Then I am gonna mod the Mahindra marshall to have a good ICE and paint it Black with alloys - just for the looks.

Thats it about me - folks

A distant relative of mine built one out of fibreglass, and even used that successfully. After some applause from the govt and media, it all came to naught
Hope you have better luck than him, Irfan. Welcome to Team-BHP

Guys, thanks very much for the warm welcome!

Hobbies that I have are an addiction - but my wife feels its better than being addicted to smoking and all other bad stuff. only that there is lot of drain on finances, but i have learnt to leave with that.

As you all guys know now that I am a sort of hard core DIY'r i was amazed at the ICE carputers chugging along!

Hope my CNC starts working soon that I can help a host of team-bhp'ians to realize their dreams to cut out metal and mdf for the various mods, especially that my CNC router can machine wood and plastic for 2.5 foot by 4 foot! and also light metal like Alu!

Hope its gonna be a wonderful teaming up with the folk all over Team -BHP

Thanks again for the warm welcome!

GOD BLESS ALL!

HI Dinar,

nice to know some one who has similar hobbies, my wife just mentioned to me that I found another nut as myself on this forum (no offense intended)


Well for all the mechanical help you can find a lot of help at CNCzone.com-Machinist Community Forums - Welcome Page and you can meet me there too. For hovercrafts are you a member of the hoverlovers group on yahoo, if not be one. If you are one of the electronic wizards i may need your help too. Do PM me your contact details.

have fun

GOD BLESS ALL

Welcome to Team-BHP!!

Hovercrafts & CNC machines!!! Two very awesome hobbies!
