Welcome. The panarama above shows our alpaca and koi farm in Chardon, Ohio some years back. It now has a new 52x60 barn and an addition to the sand-colored barn. My wife's pastime is raising and selling alpacas with which I help, however, my interests lie with vintage Saabs and Studebakers. I'll try to have a more intersting site here in the future but, for now, have a look at the following if you like.

Vintage SAAB parts for SAAB 96, SAAB 900 and SAAB 9000. Click the image below if interested:
Note: I have no involvement or interest in these parts. I am listing these for a friend.

I do a little  fabrication on the side as Yurk's Custom Fabrication LLC. If you are an alpaca breeder, and you process alpaca fiber, you might be interested in a custom fiber tumbler. It works very well, it's reversible, has interchangeable panel grids, portable and very heavy duty.

Or, you might be interested in a how-to article for the prototype fiber tumbler I built first. It's rather crude but also works very well, so I thought I would share. I have uploaded info on how I built it so you can build your own. Be forwarned, I discovered many better ways to build a tumbler after building this prototype.
