As an introduction to the work that I do, I thought I’d start by sharing some work in progress photos showing the making of my oil catch tank. It’s a part I made especially for my own car.
The welding is still not upto scratch but Im working on it! The oil catch tank is a little overkill but it is for my own car, and it wouldn’t be mine if it wasn’t.
First, I cut and folded the plate, then welded up to form the tank.
Then I welded the AN-10 fittings onto plates and made baffles for them
Then I welded plates to the inside of the tank to bolt the fittings on to so they can be removed to be cleaned.
Then drilled and tapped the holes
Next was to make the filter housing/ lid I fancied trying something different with this! its made from 12mm billet plate!
Top plate all done, not bad for a first attempt at machining letters, even if I do say so myself 🙂
Making the sight glass housing
Fitting the sight glass to the oil catch tank
It’s almost there. It just needs finishing off and fitting now.
And finally, here it is. Painted and fitted.
