A Lil Machining Action.

I was looking for an intake manifold yesterday and Thanks to FARGO ( chris) he hooked me up with his buddy and got me an intake within a few hours.

 

 

once i received it.... uh oh..... the opening was too small.

Milling the tb opening back to remove the groove

All i have to do now is blend in the last edge of the opening and smoothen it out.

 

tomorrow im going to clean up the runners as well.

Very cool and nice job.

 

Yep, when I did my face and bore, I had to do it a bit differently.

 

I would love to get a right angle attachment, someday. I could also use a 4" riser block.

Nice! If you look closely at one of the pics, you'll see my top well with it's head turned, I was trying to do it the way you did it, but didn't have risers that big.

 

 

 

Btw nice setup ;)

Yeah, I try not to move my head, since I have to zero everything back in, afterwards.

 

I really never thought I would use a right angle attachment until I saw what you did. I'm going to be keeping my eye peeled for one. You never know when I might have another reason to use it. Cheers.

 

Also, I bought that double sided indicator, a few years ago, from a retired machinist. I was pretty excited when I finally got to use it.

That double sided indicator is slick, never seen one before, I can dang sure see where it would come in handy.

thanks guys.

 

 

MAG those double sided indicators are the cats ass! when your setting up a dual jig they come in handy , that way you dont have to turn the chuck, just move your axis and youre good to go!

 

 

those 90 heads are very useful IMO. i thought i saw one on kijiji last week. ill send you a pm once im at work. think theyre like 400 new around here.
