About Farm Boy Sales
Farm Boy Sales evolved from the need for cost effective parts for vintage equipment. We offer 3D CAD modeling, mechanical design work, 3D printing of products and prototypes. You will find that we offer a variety of wiper sets in felt or 3D printed urethane in addition to 3D printed metal lathe change gears or any other gear for that matter. We also offer plan sets for some projects that we have done.
I grew up on a farm and through the years as a youngster on the farm I gained knowledge and value of how things work (or don't). We fixed and maintained all our own equipment and if we needed a special tool of some sort, we would produce one on our own. We also produced some of our own equipment in addition to re-purposing an old implement into something we could use for another purpose. After high school I decided to take up a career in welding and fabrication. This in addition to my farm boy days was where I gained experience in creative design that led to a career in the engineering field.
After graduating from college and gaining a few years of experience working in the engineering industry for a few different companies, I decided to maintain my engineering day job but also decided to open a small welding and fabrication shop which I ran for many years on a part-time basis. During those years in engineering I was exposed to the world of rapid prototyping and 3D printing.
As time went on I started acquiring additional machines and producing useful products which I sold on eBay. My business has evolved and I am not really into the welding and fabrication aspect anymore. My focus is now on rapid prototyping, 3D modeling, mechanical design, 3D printing and a few other endeavors yet to come.
We saw a need for replacement gears and parts for older metal lathes, milling machines and other equipment. You will find we have a variety of products and a lot of these are the result of us owning one of these machines or having been asked by a customer if we could produce a product for them.
With that said, if you have a project that needs 3D modeling, design work, rapid prototyping or 3d printing, let me know. I would be glad to help and maybe that in turn will help someone else.
