Hydraulic Work bench improvements

I managed to disable some of the safety systems in our repurposed wheel chair lift, they’re not required as we are not using it for its original intended purpose.

I added a 2 way joystick control which is much easier to use than the double toggle switches it came with.

Next step is to fabricate a frame to hold the front wheel of a motorcycle 🙂

Blasting cabinet works

I got the blast cabinet working. Only had bicarbonate of soda to put in it. Tried it on a carb. Works ok, needs tapping at the bottom all the time to shake the media up (Bev with a hammer ?). Got all the lines plumbed in. The one I bought to the gas bottle was way too thin, don’t think I even got 100PSI in the bottle. I definitely need a much bigger compressor and a vibratory motor to shake the media up.
