quick and dirty freewheel tool to get a white industries freewheel off. the bought one didn’t work, the dogs didn’t quite line up properly and it kept slipping off.
idea is you take the axle out and the ‘boss’ bit goes in the id of the freewheel and helps keep it concentric. worked perfectly. rough looking finish because i had to handball a radius on a manual machine by turning x and y handles at the same time – couldn’t be bothered to program the cnc for a one off!zokesMember
I made the driver of this Nissan Patrol rather embarrassed when he realised the person out of our group who had the snatch strap was driving what he termed ‘a toy 4wd’. Needless to say, I wasn’t particularly gentle yanking him out…
Not sure it really counts as making anything, but I thought it was manly enough to qualifyPosted 7 years agoMcHamishMember
I made our current kitchen…well ripped out the old one and fitted the new one.
Should have taken pictures of before and during…ripping out the old one practically destroyed the kitchen walls. Wouldn’t notice it now…given that the only things I make at work a poorly thought out and inapproproate jokes during meetings, I was quite please with myself.
Maybe I should take a picture of me in the kitchen
When I was at college doing engineering I made a pressure air driven piston out of aluminium, it produced the highest RPM. Haven’t got any pictures of that, but I think the college should have put it in the trophy cabinet in the main reception…they refused though.Posted 7 years agoBig DaveMember
No impressive machining skills were required for this (in fact I displayed no skill when making it whatsoever)and it is functional rather than impressive but I felt quite pleased with what I could do with a cheap fork clamp and a bit of old fence post:
Fits in the back of the car lovely and appears to work OK.Posted 7 years agopsychobikerMember
This is the last thing I made, over a year ago, but hoping to start a new project soon.
