Well, back in the day at the dawn of digital imagery, or nearly I worked designing document scanners. This is the first 24-bit color camera for that machine. We used 7 of these for a 800 dpi pixel density scanner.


I did all the mechanical and optical design and much of the machining for the first camera. The analog and digital electrical design was handled by a couple of other engineers.

This camera cost about $3,500 to make. The CDD was about $800 of that and the lens was another $400 or so for a color corrected enlarger lens.

I'll have to scan the photos of a laser I built.

I doubt anyone will say wow. But I made/modified some things to equip my country crossing XV920rh.



My bike was found lacking the hugger/inner rear fender,so I mounted an old Preston Petty on rubber cut from a baler belt and made some aluminum struts.
I needed some mounts for the giant panniers I got from jakewojo. I modified a Suzuki ATV rack to suit.



I wanted some protection for the motor so I cut down an old 4 cylinder crash bar to fit the slimmer twin and made braces from some old drag handle bars. For a skid pan ,I made cardboard templates then sawzalled out the parts from some scrap 3/8 ' aluminum. I encorperated a tool box into the pan made from road signs. Also made from road signs are the new sidecovers.





I wanted some wind deflectors over my hands and a car had wrecked in front of my moms house. So I used the mirror fairings the tow truck left in the ditch.
They're painted black and zip tied to the aluminum handguards from my pile-o-parts.

Yes, partially. There arent many constant radiuses in the thing but I did use it for some.

I am the original designer and manufacturer of the Tool Caddy. I designed it and manufactured them in Benicia CA. I had sold a few to XR Stuff in the UK. Now they are selling them for an outrageous price. This is wrong to steal a persons idea and try to make money on it. Especially when their is a patent pending on it.
I sell then for $25.00 plus shipping.

Instead of spamming and trying to sell them here, how about you just put pictures up, then make a thread to sell them over in the vendors section. Since you're new I won't bust your balls about the spam....this time....

Lightening holes in a gear,



We made these by the hundreds, maybe even thousands. Pump parts as I recall.

The odd looking green thing is one of the six tools used to create the hole.

Any guesses as to the technique?

Many, many years ago I learned to make a special bread with my mom and great grand mother.
This year will be our families first year when my mom isn't here to bake the bread. I needed some practice since it has been a long time.

My first attempt follows...

All mixed, first rise done in the bowl, and now formed into crude "parkerhouse rolls":


Through the oven window, are they done yet?



Out of the oven:


Now, our home smells like home.
I know this smell from the time I guess I began remembering things.
Great grandma's stove was wood fired, grandma's was gas, mom's was electric.

But, all those homes smelled like this one does now. I'm home again.

Hey Jim, buns are done...

"ECM"
Electro Chemical Milling, using an 18% solution of salt water as the electrolyte. 12vdc, and about 3,500 amps.

Page back a bit for the EDM parts...

I'll be there in a hour!

I've seen the EDM'd parts you keep in your Kennedy box, but I've never seen that part. I gotta check out ECM. Fast process I guess, eh? 18% regular salt? 3500 amps We gotta make one!

Cycle time on that gear was about 22 seconds. We could do two at a time.

As soon as these rolls cool, I'm hitting the sack. This baking gig done me in today.

Holy ci-i-rap! That's a lot of volume in 22 seconds. We gotta make one and put holes in things.


Hey, are you still operating without adult supervision over there?
