Hello from Scrooby
« on: March 07, 2011, 05:19:46 AM »
Hi there, I principally use my machine tools for making bits for vintage motor cars. i have a 1925 Frazer Nash and an Austin 7. My wife has a 1921 GN. The GN has more bits in it made by me than the works these days (at least it seems like that) We use the cars a lot, the Frazer Nash went to Italy in 2009 to the Dolomites and went over the  Stelvio pass. In 1999 we took the GN as well and it climbed the Stelvio as well.
I have two workshops, one at my sons business, a tyre company that specialises in vintage and classic tyres where I have a CVA lathe, a Bridgeport, an ancient war loan big lathe, a Clarkson Tool and Cutter Grinder, a surface grinder and other bits and pieces.
Here is an example of the sort of tricks I get up to.



At home I have a shed with a Boxford and a Centec Mill.
My most recent little project was a hub cap for a Bugatti which didn't fit when I offered ot up so now I have to put it back in the lathe pick up the thread and shave a few more thou off. It is 67mm dia with a 1.5mm pitch.


Edited to add:-
Aha my attempt at posting a picture from Flickr didn't work . Can any body point me in the right direction?




That worked how do I get it bigger?

Hi and welcome and as the  :borg: say.

We will add your biological and technological distinctiveness to our own. Your culture will adapt to service us. Resistance is futile.

If when your'e adding pics use this as an example, you need to click on the share this button and grab the  (BBcode ) as below, and paste it into where your typing the size of the pic your adding doesn't have to be small though, it's just an example, practise makes perfick.

Welcome to the collective.  :borg:

Quit an interesting avatar you have there. Question is, did it stay upright? :clap:

Pics are fine, should be about 600 X 800 to fit on a computer screen. I see yours is a bit big at 2000 X 3000. Anybody know the standard size?

Spinning by Anzaniste, on Flickr

Did this work?

No it didn't, it was very scary with an intermittent cut the whole thing rang like a bell and everybody thought it was a fire drill alarm.

This was a much better way if machining the con rod dipper clearance in the crank case.

Hiya Anzaniste!  :wave:

Welcome to the collective :borg:

Very nice pictures you got there (I did edit the 1st post and added the img tags). The GN looks fantastic. Great work keeping her on the road. I look forward to more pictures.
