Thread: What did you do in your garage today?

  1. #1

    Default What did you do in your garage today?

    Been spending a lot of time in the garage lately thought Iíd start a topic see what everyoneís doing doing the current times.
    Today finally hooked up my sandblasting cabinet. Thought I test it on a set of old S15 callipers I found in my junk pile.
    Might give em a clean up and put some life back into them



    So anyone who spends a lot of time in the man cave feel free to post up ya work here.
    Iím gonna do some painting and welding soon so Iíll post up here when I can.

    Nice work. Things are so much easier when you have the right tools and gear. I gave my front calipers a clean ( RS3 ,still on the car ) when swapping tyres/rims recently...boy they get filthy. Hopefully new pads in due course will help with the dust problem.

    nice one. Did you have a new seal kit, or was this just for practice?

    Nice! Keep us updated. I think the restrictions are giving many of us a bit of cabin fever so this will either inspire us or entertain us.

    Any reason why you went for a bandsaw instead of a cutoff disc saw? I would've thought the thin section of a pipe would cut better in a disc saw. It's a very nice bandsaw. I cut angles often and a bandsaw works better on them.
