The ball is the first test piece made from some mystery metal that was in the scrap bin.

Horizontal grinder, Sidewinder lll, my 3rd version in the evolution. I build custom knives and a horizontal grinder is a valuable tool, it sees a lot of use. It's powered by a 1hp VFD and changes from a small wheel to a more conventional horizontal grinder. The contact wheels are on their own tool arm an are quickly changed out to different diameter wheel when needed.

Just bought a big boy mill....Tree 2UVR. This was my first project. A set of special sockets to service the hubs on an old Lancia Fulvia that a buddy of mine is restoring.

I built this little gem to do plasma bird mouth notches.


And how it works
first mark you angle

Mark your notch

Make your notch


Flip the tube over and repeat.

Thanks! I will sometimes have to do a couple hundred notches a day and this makes it nice.

I needed a second socket for my locking lug nuts on the trailer. It seems every time I need it it was in the wrong vehicle. Also just got a 3in1 and needed a project.

I had to build some fenders for a sand dragster and didn't have a brake. So I threw this one together. So far I have bent 12 gage x 24" with no problems. The widest bend is 44"





I made some 2",4",6",8" and 10" angles so I can brake boxes and stuff as well.

I REALLY like that setup and I think I could put that together myself as well. Any chance you could take some more detailed pics of it? Particularly of the hinge setup? Any possibility you might be able to throw a small piece of metal in there just to show me how it starts out when performing a bend? For some reason I can't quite grasp the full operation of it Thanks if you're willing to do it

x2 but I couldn't afford one. I have been trying to make a knife out of an old leaf spring by "stock grinding". So far its OK, but I want to make it better.

Thanks! It was an order and not available...I need to get some good pics before the new owner picks it up.

Ritter4.0, Grinding a knife from a leaf spring is a good start, you'll learn a lot. My first knife was a Caterpillar head bolt I heated with a rosebud and hammered it into a blade...well...sort of...

I'm a full-time knifemaker, have been for about 10 years, I was a heavy equipment field mechanic until a back injury ended that career.
