Drop ins are available if there is still space in the class, check the ticket to see how many spaces remain.

“My mom told me I was talented in a mechanical way, so I started early with Lincoln Logs and an Erector Set. It was all-on after that and ever since. My passion for machines has been a life-long effort. Being the curator of such a grand collection is an opportunity of a life time.” As the Tractor Doctor, Rob is responsible for the maintenance, cleaning, and repair of the more than 50 tractors and steam engines on-site, as well as leading weekly tractor tours.

What inspires you?

"I am inspired by anything mechanical!"
