Re: Home made workshop tools
Here is my Hone from Hell.
Powered by an inverted floor scrubber, the tank was an ordinary water pressure tank with a flip-over carriage made of 1" nylon plate to allow cylinders with torqueplates to be attacked from both ends with a minimum of compression stress.
A stainless salad bowl beneath holds honing oil and a Little Giant hydroponics pump. The Art Deako step was a kitchen table, and the tombstone shroud at the top was cut from a patio table.
The shift knob and foot pad are true billet aluminum that I cut and ran decades ago.
The vertical ram is internally spring-loaded, manually reciprocated by handlebars, what else. The effort involved is how the machine got its name.
And of course, it drives a Sunnen AN honing head.
Thanks for your indulgence,
