My Garage Workshop is a site for my various hobbies, including my homemade CNC machine, Reprap 3d printer, metalworking on my Enco 3-in1 machine, woodworking, aluminum casting, electronics, and more that I do in my garage in Florida
Check out my photo galleries :)
I've been busy making a wobbler engine -I wasn't too sure it was going to work so I didn't take much "during" pictures - but here's a video of me testing the function :)
Being the Cheapo that I am I decided to make my own Quick Change Tool Post. I figured if it didn't work very well then I'd chaulk it up to a learning experience ;) Turns out it works really well!
Here's a video of something I worked out with the Parallax Propeller driving a stepper motor
Here's a video I made showing how I go about testing a stepper motor and determine which wires are what with an unknown motor
Here's my first official project with my new Mill Drill Lathe - I wanted to make my own live center - so here are some pics!
Yes - a new category for another hobby - I keep telling myself that it will all come around full circle one of these days!
My new friend Bob found the site via the web and contacted me about making some roses for the jewelry box he was making for his wife, so here they are!

My good friend Chanda Brae - from Baby Rock Photography, needed a lemonade stand prop to use with her baby photo shoots - so I made one :)
