Birthday badge and cake at work tonight cheers lads!
Spiffing up our design center in time for our 'surprise visit' (inspection) by our new owners tomorrow. So. Much. Fabric. No one ever puts them back where they go and I have replaced 42 broken hangers just on one wall- this is about 1/14th of it. But I have found some interesting ones, and some have fabulous names like 'Aerosmith Aqua', 'Dadgumit Navy', 'Becoming Peacock', and simply 'Da Bears'!
The robot I use is going to be famous!
Yesterday we had the crew from "car S.O.S" drop in as they need a canopy made for a messerschmitt car. It was scanned yesterday with a 3d scanner we use, to create a 3d model. I will machine a mould from the model with the robot. Once that is done, I will make a tool to hold it, and then cut out the vac formed canopy.
3 Weeks to complete it, and I am away on holiday for one of them
Another day, another MP3..
Fuoco front suspension today, living the dream!.
Punnet sealing machines, we have 4 with each having several different pattern punnet tooling, each toolset alone cost IRO £22k. The machines are IRO £100k each
One has snapped bolts and suspect parts internally do strip, assess, replace bits and order non stock parts...2 hours
Toolset mounted to machine.
Head striped exposing heater plates and mats, return springs, second pad from the right has a broken spring embedded into the plate...really embedded into the aluminium. Mind, I think there's 4 tonnes of force used every time it seals.
Damage to the spring seats and you can see one of the sheared bolt threads standing just proud between the two seats.
Drilled them out and retapaped. Alignment is critical but I've kinda got it good enough so they can still use it.
2 hours work. 40 odd bolts to remove / refit. 4 heaters, 4 thermocouples removed, 2 heater pads replaced, 3 new bolts, 34 new springs...and today I ordered £1100.00 worth of heater base plates and bits to replace the ones I've kinda bodged to get them going again...it was never a full repair, more a strip, repair what I can, assess what I need and reassemble.
We got the first cartons through for our new pruning chainsaw, the Universal chain 18.
What's so special about this particular carton you might ask... Well take a look at the photo and zoom in on the right hand 2 photos...
It's me..! We couldn't find a model that was confident with a chainsaw so they asked me to step in for what I suspect will be my one and only foray in to modelling
Chainsaw dangerously close to shoulder height
To be honest calling it a chainsaw is stretching it a little. Its really a pruning saw, super-low chain speed (8m/s?) and non-removable tip protector make it pretty safe. Certainly no chance of any kickback anyway!
And here come the trolls
Spot of hedge cutting on a cold but bright morning.
Fitted these and went back today to cast some concrete cills .
Slowly making my way through replacing all the worn rollers this morning
