    Some shop help for the small and larger jobs.
    My new grinder caddy with five stations and each grinder has its own retractable cord reel.
    I made two and the second one is showing the bare stand prior to completion. Looking quite good in front of my new Forster Welding Table.
    Simply the best table ever made! (grin)

    Kind of hard to see the detail but these are rotary molds for cookies. Done on a Haas VF5 with a 4th axis, each roll takes about 8-10 hours to machine.

    This isn't a CNC project..just old fashioned handle turning and sketches on wet bar napkins, but it is a project none the less! Not finished yet and not skinned with sheet-metal, but it's a bar crusher for Rosewood bars for a customer that manufactures Xylophones. Mashes the bar cell structure about .025 to impart a super hard, dent free surface to the bars so the mallets won't leave divots.

    Yeah, the rolls in the first pictures are. I had to make 6 rolls over this Labour Day long weekend so my customer could start production asap. Some office genius' managed to forget to order these rolls for an almost 21 million cookie order from Walmart I'm pretty sure they'll end up in the US as well, you might just see them in October.

    The second picture are cookies for St Patricks Day.

    Past month involved a lot of 1 off stuff and a few nightmares that made no $ but finally getting back into somewhat more normal repeat work. Still waiting/hoping that annual rush to Christmas will come but its not looking like it yet, only 2 weeks left on the books if I pace myself, and another nightmare coming up. More time to hunt and fish until then.

    I'm not into any mechanical or electrical project these days but I would love to see some of others' projects and get inspired with their works.

    Hbjj, what did you use to cut the axial slots on the prop shaft bearing?

    I like that follower rest, is that your design on the 3rd pad (frontside )? Or does it replicate a commercial offering? I have not seen that before that I remember. Any downside? Does it get in the way (visibility or chip formation etc)?

    I'm going to resurrect this thread just to show the machine I pictured above in its birthday suit, but now all decked out in its finest zoot suit. It's going to the customers tomorrow, sans a few of the graphics, but the guy wants it now and he's paying the bills so off it goes.

    Great looking work but I wonder what the market for the Lugger system is these days. Obviously good for some bucks on your end but I can't see why any one uses it . Is this a one time order or do you make them regularly?

    As opposed to a roll back? The luggers are typically used for scrap metal 'round these parts.

    Thanks. We make them regularly. Luggers are a small percentage of the market compared to roll ofs (which we also make), but there's also fewer people making them. The luggers are preferred for certain situations, tight quarters etc. the market is mostly scrap, but also garbage and construction.
