About:I'm an Engineer, who originally inherited the family business (Thanks Dad (RIP JC Taylor, 1938-2011)) after working in it for 25 years, designing and building scientific instruments. In 2013, I was head-hunted by a big company in Pennsylvania where I now work as their senior research engineer, continuing to develop scientific instruments, but with the budgets to do them right. I do electronic and mechanical design and manufacture, as well as write code. I moderate two forums, one on Yahoo for earth sheltered houses, and the other on the 8052 microcontroller. I am Lizzyastro's husband, and Willywoozle and Jonnybo111's father. I've got the most "Best answers" of any contributor to Instructables, at over 1090.
