My name is Ralph Boirum I am a Mechanical Engineer with electrical engineering training and these are some of my creations. This site documents some of the various projects I am working on, links to resources I used while working on them and an expanded professional work history. My personal projects revolve around automation and  robotics, particularly pertaining to Lunar and aerospace applications, and automative restoration. Professionally my work has been in heavy industry with large mobile equipment, complex elctro-hydraulic systems and electric drive.  Most of these projects are still in progress and will be updated regularly.
