NP 317, did you ever go the the home machinists meetings held at the old Seattle Georgetown Steam Plant? If so maybe we saw each other. At another part of the plant some live steamers used to set up and demonstrate their wares.

Packard V8, is it true that the early Studebaker V8 was made from Cadillac castings?

I visited the Georgetown Steam Plant twice when live steam activities were going on.
It is an amazing historic facility! Too bad that vertical turbine will never get operated again.

Who knows: We might have crossed paths!.
