Just got a Agie wire edm in on wednesday. If you ever make it to the Houston area, give me a holler and I will give you a tour of the shop. Down at the sheet metal/welding area we also have a couple of water knifes. Man I could go on all day about this place,HAHA.
very impressive...thats what i love about this site.....You just never know who is on the other end....Good Job !

Thanks so much for the invite I would love to. If I ever make it that far south I will just have to call you on that one. We are going to San Antonio the first of April but can only stay a few days, (future son-in-law graduating from basic training at Lackland).

Thanks nofear69.

Hey Doorracer- nice work. We have many cnc's where I work, but not used for automotive. Every time I see them @ work, I can't help but wonder the possibilities of making parts!! I see them work (cnc) but I have never used one. I am told the molds alone are a fortune themselves. We have a water-jet where I work too... neat machine!! Anyways, nice job! Scooter

Thanks Scooter, we actually make oil testing, sampling and measuring equipment but I can make stuff when I can fit it in. I looked into a water jet for a while and some spinning equipment, wow :shock: :shock: both are expensive but the spinning stuff, well the cheapest I looked at was 400,000.00. Just a bit out of our league.

We are only about 4 hours east of S.A. Went there saturday to S.A. Raceway and stunk up the place. At least we got out of town and the wife got to make a few passes on her car since we got it back together.

I've been trying to build something that would make all the idiot drivers realize that they are idiot drivers.

Thanks Rudy, everyone is fine I hope you and yours are the same.

I didn't like the way the alternator was fitting so I remade the mount, (bottom pic). Finally got the motor at least in the car.
