Manbench Industries; Purveyors of general mayhem since 1994, a blog to follow the crazed, possibly deranged projects and emotive musings, of an undergraduate engineer, and an apprentice organ builder who have always felt they were born in the wrong age. Follow us as we, re-write history, learn lost skills, discover strange new worlds, break things, rant at things, mend things, make new things and generally find ways of passing the day instead of doing "proper work" !
The free Google Sketchup is a fantastic program - not suitable for accurate drawings, but for a visual representation of a project, very handy. We have already shown you some of our Sketchup models made for various projects and will continue to do so, however you may be interested in seeing some of our models we have worked on just for fun and practice of various features in the program.
I shall start this with a few screen grabs of the model of my Myford Super 7 lathe that I started a while back. I might get around to finishing it one day!
