Thanks Joe. :drinks:

The hoist has certainly made it easier to work on the car at home. :thumbs:

Thanks Mate, it has taken a while to get the shed all set up but is well worth it. :drinks:

I made the billet aluminium Oil Filter spinner myself, funnily enough using the NC machines in my shed. :thumbs:

I wanted to make it easier to remove the oil filters so I made my own tool, it has a 17mm hex machined onto it so it uses the same size spanner as the sump plug.
I know you can buy similar items but just wanted to make my own.

That is one impressive setup you have there. Is that a turn mill, or you machined the flats after turning it down?

Thanks Tobyo, I machined them on two seperate machines.

The turning op was done on a little Mazak QuickTurn 8 lathe and then the milling op was done on a little Bridgeport NC mill, not on a mill turn.

My machines are basic and get the job done but nothing like what we have at work (3, 4 & 5 Axis machining centres and conventional NC Lathes plus mill turn NC Lathes with live tooling. The serious stuff).

Nothing too special, just some old school NC Machines and general shed stuff that allows me to make car parts and anything else that I feel the need to make. :lol:


My main equipment is the following.

    Mazak Quickturn 8 NC Lathe
    Bridgeport NC Toolroom mill
    Bandsaw
    TIG, Mig and ARC welders
    Plasma cutter
    Pipe bender
    Linisher and grinders
    Drill press etc

With the Mill I can either write a basic program straight into the controller or for more complex parts I draw and program on the computer using CAD/CAM software and then send a computer generated program to the machine.

With the lathe, I just program it straight into the machine using Mazatrol.

I don't mind tinkering in the shed especially when it comes to car parts. :thumbs:
