Since I don't have time to run my own (engine- and mechanical) workshop, I outsource most mechanical works (and storage).
Originally for project: MembersPage/MarcellGal/EngineSwap.
- they allow some storage from time to time
- help me with the operations (for fee, of course).
- they can get some ECM and electronic education if they like.
Workshops had partnership with many, some of the ones I like:
- MembersPage/NanassyPeter and Karkus (15 km) best at audi 5cyl and exhaust / intake and other mechanical works
- designed and built several (3 axis and 4 axis) CNC-s with a partner who operates them (even with <20hours/week utilization ROI ~ 2 years)
- originally licensed sheetcam to generate G-code from several 2D drawings (several layers in 1 dxf file) at different heights, like the overlapping frontplate
- later with more complex software: 3D parts also (like Si moulding tools), collecting experience with this
- just installed a powerful UPS (uninterrupted power supply), because even a short power outage is very inconvenient
- CNC plasma-cutter with automatic height regulation (designed, but not built yet)
- CNC lathe partner
- several manual lathe-s (one small, one big, most of them are medium size); useful for prototype work (and good assist in/near any workshop) one guy is actually very good at series work also (competitive with CNC-lathe, surprisingly)
- TGS dyno but also works for mechanical stuff (20 km)
- MembersPage/GeorgSzabo (25km): transmissions
- own locations
- storage locations (several; and outsourced to partners)
- DROPPED: http://www.proex.hu/ (Budapest,X.Koer u.6) workshop. The proex is actually the smaller shop on the same location, that manages the exhaust manufacturing (the preturbo part from stainless). There is also a bigger shop for engine and other repairs sharing the same yard and security (dogs :-) but different owner. Boss and contract-contact is Miklos Nemeth, +36209557798.
A businessmen goes into the bank.
- I want a $100 loan for 2 months.
- You don't need to "loan", since you have $1300000 on your bank account. You can simply take $100 from that.
- I want a $100 loan, else I take all my money from this bank.
- I'd like to leave my BMW at the bank as assurance (deposit, what's it called ?).
- You don't need to leave any deposit.
- I'd like to leave my BMW at the bank, else I take all my money from this bank.
- OK, as you wish.
The businessman goes home and tells his wife:
- we can go on holiday now. I found a very safe guarded place for the BMW for $1/month.
