    RedBull Soapbox Derby

    Recently, RedBull Distribution OC asked us to help build a soapbox derby car for the 2011 RedBull Soapbox Derby in Los Angeles. The budget was quite small, under $1000, so we did what we could....which is to say, not much.  A few weeks and a couple cases of Redbull (diet, of course) later, we were quite proud of the end product.

    Electric Car Gearbox

    We recently took on a very challenging project. An electric car company asked us to design and manufacture two prototype gearboxes for their new compact sedan.  Shown here are the top and bottom housings.  The bottom housing shows a couple roller bearings and the differential. The housing measure approximately 12" x 3" x 21". Machined out of a block of AL6061.

    Vacuum Form Mold - * Update *

    If you scroll down a ways, you'll see the vacuum form mold we designed and manufactured for a local remote control boat builder. He stopped by to show us the finished product. This one is missing all the rigging, but he promised to stop back by and show us the finished product.

    Fixed Gear Bike Component

    We recently completed a set of fixed gear bicycle stems for a local HB manufacturer.  If you've never seen fixed gear bikes, they're quite the ride. No brakes, no gears. It's a direct drive systems, so if the wheels are moving, the pedals are moving. Riders stop by leaning forward and locking out their legs thereby forcing the rear wheell to stop spinning. Stems were CNC machined from billet AL6061. Features are on 4 sides, including a full radius at each end. Radius of 0.043" on all edges. Company name engraved on the side. Since the run was fairly small, we created a fixture to hold 8 blocks of aluminum at a time. The stems were then given a brushed surface finish and Type II black anodize.
