P2 Supercharger – The Gearbox – Part 2

After the initial CADing, I soon found that the holes where not evenly spaced.
I did a bunch of printed test jigs to get the hole pattern worked out.

Once the pattern with within 0.5mm, I adjust the model and hit print.

~ 260mm x 240mm x 24mm

Plonked onto the supercharger and it lines up perfect.

Pressed the bearing in.

It almost looks like a thing…

Off to the workshop to do some machining.

Grabbed a length of 32mm Titanium bar I have laying around and dropped it into the power hacksaw. Where it proceeded to remove most of the teeth on the blade, forcing me to replace the blade with a spare 😛

Into the lathe and send it!

The long side is roughed out, I’ll machine it specifically to suit the pulley after it has been bored.

Bearing fitted on nicely.

Quick test fit, looks like a thing.

A couple of days later, I swung into the workshop and machined the pulley most of the way, just need to do the final bore to size, then finished the shaft to be a press fit.

Till next time!

DJ RoutyBOI – A CNC Rite of Passage

When one gets a CNC machine, you must do what all good nerds do, play music on it.
I however missed this step in the manual and moved straight onto making a mess of the first thing I could bolt to the bed and feed a cutter through.

So I kicked of this morning by taking my rite of passage and played a song on the router.


CNC Jobs

The last couple of weeks the little 6040 CNC has been belting out jobs for myself and some customers. Here are a couple that it has completed.

S2000 F20C throttle body adaptor to allow a drive by wire throttle to be bolted on.

Throttle body adaptor flanges for a Toyota 1GZFE V12

I’ve been playing around with the idea of making some ITB’s for the 3MZ V6 project, this is the first test of the idea. Not perfect, but proves the point.

The reservoir tank lid on the GC8 has rusted and started leaking, so I decided to make a billet one.

I was also asked if I could make a EGR block off plate for the Toyota 1MZ V6.
