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.

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.
