I have talked with Steve Muck several times this year. He now lives in the Dallas area.

Tim,

I'd say just about anybody from the Ft. Wayne or Indy clubs would be a good place to start, as far as Jim Irwin goes. Especially the older, longer standing members.

That said.... I'd have to say that, if Dave Roach couldn't help you out, you're likely to strike out elsewhere, too.

What is it you're trying to divine?

Thanks. Brad.

I talked to him last year about making some more pipes but there was no interest there at all.

Name that Pipe

Thanks-

Thanks, Dave... I didn't want to wear the topic out with you, but yeah, I can call.

I did talk to 2 of the outfits you gave me, and the responses were hard to interpret.

Lewark baffled me the most.

Got a hold of an outfit in Milwaukee and going to send the sketches and math data out tomorrow.

They seemed interested.

The source that I'm working for is getting restless....lol. ;)

As far as my area goes, yeah, I called on some of my old prototype metal forming sources from

my days at General Motors- those contacts have moved on (guess I forgot how old I've gotten!),

and the new blood doesn't want to mess with small 200 piece jobs.

We'll be in touch, Dave...thanks again.

You need to talk to Dick Jones if it is about Jim's pipes. I also knew Jim very well, but not about his pipe business.

Have not seen Steve in a few years, he is a top notch kind of a guy. I am building a 1/8 scale using one of his hulls now. Set up net to him in Houston one year long ago, Love's Marina, he was a font of information and very helpful.
