Spools

January 19, 2014

These incredibly light and thin spools started life as solid 8″ chunks of 6061 aluminum. The walls on this taper down to under 1/8″. We made some interesting fixturing to to be able to turn these.

 

Border Patrol Gates

January 03, 2014

One of nearly 50 gates we have fabricated for the US Customs and Border Protection. This was one of the larger gates we built at 8’x24′.

Equipment Production

October 03, 2013

These are all pieces to one of the many carbon fiber machines we build for a customer. They are all precision parts that require lots of machining and fabrication.

Jet Pack Spines

July 19, 2013

These parts were designed to be the backbone of a personal jet pack. Yes that is right…

Unimog Portal Boxes

May 20, 2013

The 74 Weld Portal Boxes are designed around the Unimog 404 portal axles, but feature numerous upgrades. They are designed to be lighter, stronger, and much cooler than the cast iron boxes made over a half century ago. The boxes are machined from 5″ thick 7050 aluminum plate and incorporate radii throughout the part to minimize stress risers in critical areas. We drill and tap the boxes for 7/16-20 bolts so you no longer have to pull a wheel to make sure your boxes are tight. These boxes give you the option of running the factory brakes, but for those that want to shave weight and gain performance, we have designed caliper mounts to accept 6 Piston Wilwood Dynalite calipers using 14″ Spidertrax rotors. One of the major design improvements over the stock boxes is obvious as soon as you put it in your hands. The stock boxes have been knows to blow out around the large lower gear due to shock load, hitting them on rocks, and all around use and abuse that the 404’s were never intended to handle. The 74 Weld Portal Boxes have an additional .300″ of material around the large gear to combat these forces. We also added an additional .080″ of material on the back side of the upper small bearing. All of these minor design improvements will pump new life blood into the old Unimog 404 boxes, making them ready for any off road adventure. We have over 2 years of testing on these boxes without a single issue.

 

 

 

Off Road Sway Bar Kit

April 07, 2013

After a year of testing and abuse, we are ready to offer what we feel is hands down the best sway bar kit on the market. This product was designed because I had nothing but problems with arms stripping and breaking, and the flat plate ones are heavy and ugly. So the result is a billet 6061 T-6 aluminum arm with a massive 1.400″ of spline engagement (compared to the typical .750″) on a 1.25″ 48 spline 4340 heat treated bar. The kit comes complete with 4130 cromoly plates that bolt to the arm with all grade 8 hardware. The links are spun 6061 T-6 aluminum and are cut and tapped for 5/8″ heims.

Contact us for custom bars to match your application.

Kits include:

4340 heat treated sway bar

74 Weld aluminum sway bar arms

4130 double shear plates. Choose from 14″ 16″ or 18″ for the overall sway bar length

6061 aluminum links cut and tapped to customer specification

5/8″ heims with jam nuts and all grade 8 hardware needed for assembly

Aircraft sheet metal brackets

March 26, 2013

These parts were laser cut, CNC press broke, then thrown up on the Prototrak DPM5 where we countersunk holes to accept flush solid rivets. The parts were coated with class 3 chem film, then received the final rivets and fasteners.

Aerospace Bracket prototype

February 16, 2013

Due to the bend radii required on this part we opted to machine it out of solid 6061 T-6. Programmed in Hypermill, and run on the Haas VF2 SS, the finish was flawless, and the tolerances were easy to hit. Because the finished part was so thin we ended up having to get a bit creative with op 2, holding it on a tooling plate using double sided sticky tape.

Sway Bar Arms

January 23, 2013

Early stages of a production run on our sway bar arms. These are broached to accept a 1.25″ 48 spline sway bar. Custom bars can be made to order. Contact us for details

Unimog Hubs

January 15, 2013

A likely addition to the Aluminum Portal Boxes, these hubs are lighter, thicker, and were designed to accept both 6×6.5″ and 8×6.5″ wheels. They also feature an integrated brake hat designed for the Spidertrax 14″ rotors. Our box and hub combo along with the Wilwood brakes and Spidertrax rotors can literally shave hundreds of pounds of axle weight.

Open Mind Hypermill

November 02, 2012

With the expansion of the machining portion of the business we took the plunge and have embraced Open Mind Hypermill Software. Its a truly state of the art programe and will allow us to undertake more complex work, optimize tool paths, and streamline our programing and prototype process.

Deep Sea Enclosure

October 16, 2012

This was a quick turn prototype housing built to a customer’s solid model. The flanges were all machined on a Prototrak. The housing was constructed out of 6061 T-6 Aluminum and welded with 5356 aluminum as the finished product was anodized for corrosion resistance. It currently resides on the bottom of the ocean in working order.

Custom Davit Lift

August 09, 2012

This was a quick turn project that required machining of flanges to mate to a bearing, welding of several heavy aluminum components, anodizing, and delivery in a couple days.

Sway Bar Arms

June 14, 2012

This project was something I have wanted to do for over a year now, but for one reason or another I have not gotten around to it. I have not found a single off road sway bar arm that I like. They are either way too expensive, or are flat out junk, so once again necessity becomes the mother of invention. This is nothing revolutionary, but these arms address much of what I see as issues with the sway bar arms on the market. They are either ugly, too expensive, or not strong enough. Made from 6061 T-6 they are 1.375″ thick, are CNC machined, and will have laser cut plates that capture the heim. This also allows us to use one bar for multiple lengths.

Class 1 Front Bulkhead

May 24, 2012

This project was a redesign of a damaged front end on a Class 1 desert race car. The bulkhead had to be replaced so we sat down, reverse engineered what was already there, and designed in additional bracing and supports. The result was a new bulkhead designed in Solidworks, laser cut, CNC press broke, and TIG welded using ER80s-D2 filler material.
