Machine Shop Tours: Steed Speed
Steed Speed machine and manufacture exhaust manifolds, but their approach is revolutionary. It happens to be unlike anything else on the market. The 2 halves of the manifold are machined separately and then welded together.
Steed Speed is also a high chip production shop… that’s why they invented a chip removal system so no person has to spend hours cleaning chips. (Learn more below and at minute 10:14). Do chips get stuck to the side or base of your machine cabinet? If so, you’ve gotta check the Chip-A-Wave out.
Tour the space where it all happens! Our host Julie Steed walks us through their 6,000 square foot facility. This shop comes from humble beginnings; it started in a carport. And now, Steed Speed has 10 CNC machines and a robot welder! Julie preaches that you can build anything if you work hard enough.
