I just received an email from Mike Rehmus, the editor of Model Engine Builder magazine, informing me that Bruce Satra passed away early this morning. Though I had heard plenty about him, I never had the opportunity to meet him in person. Here is what Mike had to say:

"For those of you who did not know Bruce, he was the quintessential ‘Nice Guy’, a superb machinist, mold maker, and a great supplier of very high quality castings for the Morton M5 and several scale model radials. He will be missed."

Sincerely,
Mike Rehmus

Sorry to hear that. Bruce was a star in the model IC arena. I built his Morton M-1 and have the castings for an M-5. They are fantastic. Rest in peace.
