    What machine?
    Nice looking
    The meat tray looks like it’s for a paint roller

    D Nelson, your pictures make me miss the big tool & die work I used to do. Only a little

    405febd6-2e60-4aa0-af70-3cdb5896f44f.jpg

    Haven’t machined them yet, these are the 3D prints that are going to the customer to check fit.

    Machined these last month for a customer.

    Lucky you! Last time I did any polishing it was 120-220-320-400 stones, then felt bobs and 2 different diamond pastes (not sure of grit).

    Although much smaller than giant crane beams, I have been doing a lot of welding lately too. All 304 stainless.
    Just finished and installed this ships ladder up to a loft, forged stainless and doug fir steps.
    And tomorrow they are installing these two benches in Rockville Maryland, again, all stainless. Hundreds and hundreds of welds...

    I don't really miss the big stuff, but sometimes I miss the variety of being in a job shop environment.... I think the last "cool" job I remember doing was some forming die detail for a a big rim, like a semi or something. The part started out as a piece of A2 7x22x22. Talk about nerve wracking! (don't screw it up, but don't take too long either!) Not to mention it was a pita having to flip flop it and move back and froth on the table because there wasn't enough Y travel. It was pretty cool when all said and done though.

    Started out strictly machining. My biggest customers where design/engineering outfits so after I saw what they were being charged by fab shops for simple parts of projects we couldn't do I bought a press brake, shear and hydraulic press for forming/drawing.

    I was able to keep most project work inhouse that way, with the exception of welding which usually needed to be done by a certified welder. I was able to tack weld some weldments together making it much easier/cheaper for the final welding to be done.

    A deep drawn part we did hundreds of using crude tooling.
