Default New Toy (Tool)!

Figured I would throw this up here to show you guys a new tool I got, which is a lifesaver when it comes to manifold building.

Here is my new 6"x89" belt sander that I got from enco online. It is a 2hp monster, which is necessary for decking manifolds flat after they warp from welding. There were some great reviews on this machine from the honda-tech fabrication forum, so I went with it, and I have not been disappointed one bit.







And some pictures showing what it can do. All modeling done by MartinezA92 new-to-him cast manifold.






p.s. we really need to make a fabrication sub-forum.

I can't wait until I live in a place where I know I'm not going to end up moving in 2 years. My post-Navy life house will be on property big enough for a separate 2x2 garage... then I will have glorious toys like this!

Wish my GF had an adjustment like that.

So how much are you going to charge to lap one of our manifolds?
