    Introduction

    Hello everyone. I've been a long time member on FG and other RC sites. I'd like to take this time to properly introduce myself. My name is Bjorn Baal. I'm married to my beautiful wife Emily and we have three awesome children. An 8 year old daughter who's a science wiz kid and twin 2 year old boys which are little wrecking balls. I've been involved in RC for about 15 years and more recently giant scale for the last 4 years. I met Frank many years ago and over this time he's been a wonderful friend and mentor to me. We've shared many stories about work and Frank's Vietnam experiences. I started my professional career as an aircraft mechanic on the East Coast and transitioned to the oil and gas industry here in north western New Mexico.

    I approached Frank four weeks ago about buying his business. This has been something we have been thinking about since he mentioned closing his doors a few years ago. I have been very adement to maintain the high level of quality and excellence that Frank has been known for with his rings and overall engine expertise. I want to assure everyone that I will be using every one of Frank's techniques and processes, from material selection to machine work to the heat treating process.

    To meet current demand I will focus on the most frequently purchased rings and build up my inventory. I am anticipating to be swamped till I get caught up but I look forward to working with you and appreciate your support.

    I've reached an agreement with Jeff from Thunderbolt RC that he would be my Canadian distributor of the common large gasser rings. The ultimate savings would be in shipping since I have quite a bit of paperwork to fill out to ship across the border. If you have any requests please contact Jeff @ jeff@thunderboltrc.com.

    For glow rings please contact me @ rmjmachineworx@gmail.com.

    Again I look forward to continuing Frank's legacy and serving your engine needs.

    Thank you again

    Hi Bjorn, nice to see you over here and extremely nice to hear we will still be able to get Bowman rings.

    I think I read on FG that you were from Farmington...funny enough I was there for a week last spring. Some good mountain biking and I didn't have a bad meal the entire time!

    Re: Introduction

    Farmington is a "small" town but big enough for us. I grew up in NYC and this was a pleasant change. Looking forward to filling the need up in the great north.

    Re: Introduction

    Hello everyone. Thought I'd post up and tell everyone thank you for your support. I've made two ring shipments to Thunderbolt RC now and have sent quite a few customers to Jeff for my rings. The weather is warming up here in the lower 48 so flying season is kicking into gear. Not a bad time to refresh your engines with a new ring to get the season started off with that smile knowing your engine is healthy.
