@azfizrof and I went to an auction preview at a machine shop this morning and spotted this gem behind one of the mills.

Large radius bending die for some “close enough” tube bending
All @equinoxstudiosseattle garage sale today including a ridiculous amount of bike, moped, car, machinist, audio and other weird esoteric crap. Please come take it away 🤑
From concept to reality... some prototype lift kit parts for a Mercedes van that @peacevans is working on. A pleasure doing business!

Very slightly domed cap machined from A36 on the Daewoo, a one-off architectural part for @gaugedesigngroup

Super clean XR250L in the shop for a stainless exhaust install. Had to cut and reweld the header at a different angle and add a slip joint to fit the supplied muffler.

Walk away, break an insert, you’re gonna have a bad time. Good thing I had one extra piece of material 😬

Finally took some time to decipher the gibberish in the Fanuc manual to figure out how to make this machine cut single-point threads. Haven’t had a job for this machine yet that necessitated single-pointing but we’ve got some fancy stainless leveling feet in the queue that gave me a good reason to figure it out.

2nd ops on some fancy brass towel rack clamps for @gaugedesigngroup - drill/tap/clearance/counterbore and then saw splitting, leaving a .010” wall during sawing so the top half doesn’t go flying across the enclosure and get dented.
