I work full time as a Journeyman Toolmaker. I have been machining since I left high school. That would have been 1984. Shortly after my wife and I bought our lake home, I bought my first outboard.
After that purchase I did my research and I found the AOMCI, known as The Antique Outboard Motor Club Inc., found here: Absolutely the best place to get info about your old motors bar none.
I have always found a way to get the job done, but some jobs require the proper tools. That is where this story begins. Frank Robb, a fellow AOMCI member, had been making reproduction service tools
for the classic OMC’s,
Well, Frank has decided to step away from that endeavor to pursue his “bucket” list.
When I found out Frank was stepping down, I offered to step up. I purchased his jigs, fixtures and prints and now I will continue the tradition of excellence set before me.
I, like Frank, do this in my spare time, as I have a full time day job. I will do my best to keep items in stock, and when not in stock, I will do my best to keep the wait time to a minimum. I promise to continue his legacy of top quality tools at reasonable cost.
