    The more I use the Huron the more useful it proves.



    I`ve just finished this tool, it`s used to crimp this sprung plastic insert into the tube.







    The tool trial went well, had to do a couple of mod`s & it was passed off.

    There must be some odd reason that you are not under the ram?

    The inserts are crimped into part of a large frame which do not fit under the ram, its so far forward to clear the different versions one has an offset of 140mm. The frames are finished painted as well.

    Just finished these, exhaust tail pipe assemble fixtures. I`m pleased the way they have gone.





    Happy new year, hope it`s a good one.

    Blimey last post in January, the years moved on.
    Didn`t have any work for the Haas for the first 6 weeks of the year, turned it on to find the memory battey had died. So lost my parameters & 2 months worth of programs, note to self back programs up weekly.

    The window on the Haas is a clear plastic ( I`m guessing some sort of acrlic, does anybody know what plastic is used for machine windows ) had become heavly marked to the point I couldn`t see the machine working.
    It looked like there was more plastic covered by the inner door panel, so unbolted the panel & turned the plastic panel over.

    Machined these spars for a motorsport company, took more time to clamp it down in plain than machine the end.




    I was at the aluminium foundry a few weeks ago & the moulder had just finishing these two bottom moulds. I thought afterwards it might have made better sense if I`d photographed the patterns as well! The gausses on the runner system are to filter the molten aluminium before it enters the cavity of the part.

    Truning a large 45Deg taper on an aluminium boss. I couldn`t get a finish I was happy with, as hand turning the feed handle kept giving an uneven finish. So looking at the M6 cap head holding on the feed handle.

    Quantum leap time, ( well for me ) this is the first thread I`ve helically milled.
    The part chattered a bit as it was supported on 3 casting jacks & was 23mm deep which was the maximum the cutter could go to, so not the best job to start with. But all went well

    Haven't replaced it yet, still can't believe I`ve broken it.
    I`ve put the parts to the back of the table, hoping it`ll fix it`s self.

    That looks like an import tap wrench, or are my eyes a little fuzzy?

    You could always make a new body and reuse the good parts.

    You`re right it`s not a quality job & looking at on the thread side there is hardly any wall thickness, so hence it broke.
    I`m just annoyed at myself for breaking it, bearing in mind the use it`s had.
    I might look to make a new body but I know I`ll end up buying a replacement, lack of time etc.

    This week I`ve been making Anti Roll Bars from spring steel.
    heat the ends to flatten them.


    Heat the area that needs bending.


    Note wheeled table leg been used as a back stop, no expense spared on this job.


    Finished article, but they will need heat treating to restore the boingeness back into them.


    Well it`s turning out to be a bit of a strange year & just to help things along I crashed my Haas SL20 badly, knocked the spindle, turret & Z axis out of line. Any ways it all brings Friday.

    Do the pictures still display in the rest of the posts as they are hosted on Photobucket?

    A friend of mine has started producing replacement chassis for TVR`s & he`s up graded a number of parts, so only looking at very low numbers but good to be involved.

    Nice! On my old Fiat 124 people often double the swaybars, and just place them on top of eachother.
