    Here are some photos of the grinder and the press brake.

    1. some things I bent using the press, material thickness on one is .187 and the other is .125

    2. this is the press, ugly but free

    3. here is a photo of the cable drive I made to replace the rack and pinion on the surface grinder
    4. and 5. photos of the grinder, also ugly but only $50 worth.

    Khnah It took me about 15 years to assemble the shop.

    Sweet...The 2VG must have been a bear to move in by yourself. I hear they are a couple pounds heavier than my 2UVR. Thanks for the shop pics.

    dan,

    great shop! i wish my basement didn't have any humidity problems as that is a beautiful setup.

    i was also wondering about that thing to the left of the bandsaw in photo #5. so it's some type of small brake? neat.

    i have another ID question for you. in photo #6 next to the optical comparator, is that a small surface grinder? the reason i ask is i have some parts that a guy gave me when he was cleaning up after a yard sale. the parts appear to be the base, the back piece (the large casting that the spindle moves up and down in) and the complete spindle assembly. by chance would you be able to get some close-up photos of that grinder? i'd like to see if i have enough parts to get it partially together. this is the first time i have ever seen a similar one.

    thanks.

    quasi,
    A friend purchased a Lisle (I think) drill grinder, he was kind enough to allow me to disassemble and measure up the parts. One cam in particular was difficult to measure. My solution was to use a CNC mill to measure points on the cam and then use the same mill to produce a copy of it. I don't know how I could produce the info to allow a HSM'r to do it himself/herself.

    As far as how well does it work .... It works very well for what I do I can sharpen anywhere from 1/8" up to 1". Typical sharpening time for the smaller drills is in the range of a minute or less.

    I am very impressed with your drill grinder,could you comment on the design and how well it works? It looks like a darex5?

    Any chance of you selling plans for it?

    Beautiful! I'm not sure if you know it but an organized shop is the sign of a sick mind or so I was told. I seen the generous us of duck tape in one photo so you can't be that sick. Love classics.

    Dan,

    Nice Shop!!!

    The drill grinder you made looks like a good project for HMS.

    John, I believe it is a press brake, it has interchangable dies that bend material to various angles. It was free and I'm a sucker for machines.

    Bob, I mostly make chips and messes. I love fixing things and I frequently make tools to allow me to do things easier. Here is a link to a tool I made to check drawbar pull on CNC machining centers. I can also check the preload on the spindle bearings and the push out force when releasing the tool.
