It's possible to get a pretty good surface finish on a cheap mill with no power feed #homemachineshop #mill #millingmachine #machinist #flycutter #tooljunkie #toolcollection #feedthemonster

Marks handbook. Mechanical engineers handbook fourth edition 1941.a lot of the stuff I work on doesn't come from engineers, or if it was engineered it was done badly and that's why I am fixing it. I use this book a fair bit when figuring out if stuff I am building is strong enough, usually I engineer everything to double the load I needs to handle for safety reasons. This is where I got the formulas to figure out the beam deflection on the lathe trolley, that were written on the back of a box while I was on hold on the phone. I much prefer actual books over looking things up on the internet and relying on random sources of information, because let's face it, the internet really isn't the great infallible source of information people would like to think it is, just because you read it on the internet doesn't mean it's actually right..... #homemachineshop #marksbook #mechanicalengineershandbook #tooljunkie #toolcollection #feedthemonster #qualitytools #1941

Zx-45 mill, I'd love to have a bridgeport or something similar, but I don't have the space in this workshop, even the zx-45 hits the roof. As far a cheap mills go these are ok, not great but a massive step beyond the round column belt drive mills, it has a 6 speed gearbox so absolutely no belts to change and dovetail ways on the table and the head movement. I built a dro with instructions from www.yuriystoys.com #homemachineshop #mill #millingmachine #machinist #tooljunkie #toolcollection #feedthemonster

Still using these Lenox metal max blades, they definitely don't cut as quickly as a normal blade, but the fact that they don't wear down is very handy. #homemachineshop #lenoxmetalmax #anglegrinder #tooljunkie #toolcollection #feedthemonster

Machinery moving equipment/engine swap equipment . The 2 ton engine crane I have been using for the last 12 years, definitely a handy tool to have, used it for a lot of different jobs, and at one point even made an extension and used it to replace the uprights on my front verandah by lifting the roof up, actually made that job really easy #homemachineshop #enginecrane #2tonhoist #tooljunkie #toolcollection #feedthemonster

Starrett 13m 150mm double square, one of the very few starrett tools I have purchased new, most of my stuff is second hand, but because it's all good quality and good brand name stuff it all works perfectly, but I really wanted one of these squares and after hunting ebay for 2 years I bit the bullet and bought a brand new one, been using the heck out of it for months now and I really like it. #starrett #starrett13m #starrettsquare #tooljunkie #toolcollection #feedthemonster #qualitytools #metricland

Bit of crc (it's what I had in bulk) some scotchbrite and a chunk of elbow grease and the carriage moves freely again, almost looks Ike a lathe bed under there.... #vintagemachinery #vintagelatheproject #thevintagelatheproject #homemachineshop #tooljunkie #toolcollection #feedthemonster

Sometimes you don't need to a huge amount of layout work, for example, I could have measured and scribed, then center punched all the holes for these castor wheel plates but transfer punches are a lot faster, clamp the castor to the plate, put the right size transfer punch in the hole, tap it with a hammer, do all 4 and move on. Found that my imperial set fitted the holes in the castors a little better than my usually used metric set (I live in metric land ok.. 😂) #homemachineshop #transferpunch #tooljunkie #toolcollection #feedthemonster #worksmarternotharder

There is something satisfying about using quality tools, I spent too much time chasing problems with out of square squares and incorrect angle gauges, it's nice to pick up a tool and know it's right, so when I stuff up it's my fault, I can't blame the tools, it's all on me #homemachineshop #starrett #starrett13m #tooljunkie #toolcollection #feedthemonster#qualitytools #toolporn #metricland #metricporn

Apparently the local @bunnings listened to my complaints about sub standard /bent /crap steel supplies and have started stocking steel that is of an acceptable quality, not great, but a shit load more usable than the last lot I got from them that was not 90 degrees, and also not flat or straight ! And I'm pretty sure it had way too much carbon in it because it cracked when I tig welded it with er70s2 filler rod #homemachineshop #bunnings #steel #starrett #starrett13m #tooljunkie #toolcollection #feedthemonster

Love getting these images from friends telling me they have seen the green monster in their hood. Coming up with a concept for a truck is not as simple a task as i would have hoped, then committing to it! But the results have been extremely positive.

Dinner time is a very noisy affair! You might think we don’t feed Olive with all of her crying 🙄 We do of course, as she’s gained at least 3 pounds since we brought her home a year ago 😂

Adjustable head extendable handle pry bar, this is so handy to have in the tool box, and it takes up a lot less room than my big wrecking bar, the wrecking bar will move a lot more weight but I have moved 450kg(900 lbs) loads with this one with out it failing.this one was sold under the Jimmy tools brand but there are a lot of them that all look the same, the adjustable head angle is really handy especially when trying to move machines next to walls or other equipment #homemachineshop #tooljunkie #toolcollection #feedthemonster #qualitytools #metricland #prybar #wreckingbar #rollinghead

Good Moaning lover. Idk about any of y’all but the new retrograde has been interesting. My work load had picked up and I’m in the process of using ppls personal energy to help me create. And boy oh by has that been fun. Lol. Putting ppl in uncomfortable and intimate situations and having them react causes an adrenaline reaction. It’s the process afterall. Add to that I’m so damn frisky I can’t sleep. One thing that works against me is I’m so visually stimulated. I’m a writer, I’m an artist, obviously I’m a chef. So I appreciate beauty and struggle. Bah, we’re all just a category away from some kinky shit eh? Well I’m going to try and stay focused today....I’m already failing miserably. So send nudes. #whohealsthehealer #nature #lasvegas #feelingfrisky #ohhey #herekittykitty #meow #zaddy #papi #whohealsthehealer #eatme #feedthemonster #cheflife #pride #hikingislife #illneedmorebatteries #focus #cannabiscommunity

Someone once came up to me and one of my many bosses and said, "What do you do? Whatever it is, I want in! You're having way too much fun." .... Seriously starting to realize that no one knows what I 'actually do'...and that's kind of cool. Especially when I get to eat 1st and 2nd dinner...and on some occasions, like tonight, 3rd dinner. The pig tail at Mateo in Durham was dumb by the way Like, changed my day...maybe my life. Company didnt suck either😊

A drawer of lathe tools, all carbide insert stuff. Mostly I use ccmt06 or dcmt 07 inserts, most of my parting tools and internal grooving tools are set up for 2mm wide inserts. I have a heap of tnmg16 stuff, because it was cheap and I will be upgrading to a bigger lathe that will run a 16mm insert properly soon, well hopefully soon... #homemachineshop #lathe #manualmachinist #carbideinserts #ccmt0602 #dcmt #tooljunkie #toolcollection #feedthemonster

Got a replacement for the parting tool that I damaged, went with a 10mm shank this time but now realised that it has a lot less depth of cut available, so I'll probably spend the $16 to buy a 12mm shank insert holder, I have actually repaired the other one but there is a bit of damage to the very end of the insert tab that I dont really like, still works ok.

The mill I currently have isn't great for using large endmills, 10mm tooling runs pretty good, I can bury that Sutton tools roughing endmill at full depth at 1000rpm in steel and it will cut like butter. I can run 3/4 inch endmills in it but it beats the heck out of the gearbox. #homemachineshop #mill #millingmachine #endmill #suttontools #tooljunkie #toolcollection #feedthemonster #qualitytools #metricland

Sacrificial dial indicator I use on the ways of my lathe, I get these from an ebay store in south Australia called ozmestore1, they bring in a lot of tools and equipment from China. These metric 10mm travel indicators are actually fairly decent quality with all brass internals and pretty low free play in the stem, for $15 they are pretty good value for money since they get messed up from hot chips pelting them all the time #homemachineshop #dialindicator #lathe #tooljunkie #toolcollection #feedthemonster
