The Workshop

Workshop projects are for stuff in the garage (CNC, Reprap, woodworking, metalworking, electronics, metal casting, etc...)

I've been trying to work out a good, cheap DC motor controller - I think I've got it!

Here's how I made my own bandsaw bearing guides from aluminum tubing and regular skate bearings - for like $20 :)

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!

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 :)

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!


These are my posts about my CNC hobby, now to include my new Reprap 3d Printer :)

These are my electronics projects, working with the Parallax Propellor, Arduino, stepper motors, you name it!

Here are some of my Metalworking projects, probably with my Enco 3-in-1 Mill / Drill / Lathe

Here are some of my woodworking projects using my Shopsmith Mark VII and other various woodworking tools

Here are some of my adventures in casting aluminum with my homemade foundry
