    My shed

    Just a couple of more pictures of stuff I do in my workshop. First picture is of my Moore Jig Borer, an American machine from the early 1960s which was gauranteed to be accurate down to 2/10ths of a thou over the full length of the table travel. For the uninitiated, thats 5/8ths of f*ck all. I do all of my precision boring for bearing housings and multiple hole spacings on this machine, Next up is my precision equipment, a 1lb hammer. As a very good engineer told me when I was being trained by him, "never force it son. Use a heavier hammer". Took me a while to realise the laugh was at my expense! Next up is my Jones and Shipman cylindrical grinder which can grind a shaft or a bore to within 0.005mm (or 2/10ths of a thou) This can be halved if need be, I love this machine!
    Last up is my Jakobsen surface grinder which I can easily remove 0.00025mm from a piece of steel. Thats a tenth of a thou. Bear in mind a human hair is 3 thou. Hope you find this interesting as I make parts for old bikes and sometimes, not so old.

    The second shot also shows an essential part of any engineers toolkit, for when the job is not going to plan

    I totally agree with you 1675. Taken in moderate proportions it [and similar] beverages have multi task changing abilities. To calm ones nerves, to increase ones capabilities, to ease the pain of misalignment [when using such precision equipment] and above all else, the ability to render unwarranted incursions into said fine workshop unconscious. Truly a fine addition to any workshop. :169: :169:
