Who are these strange fellows?

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" !

Splitting headache!! (Life lessons No. 2)

Time for another Life Lesson kids!

When taking the time to do a job properly, dont rush the end to get it out of the way...

I ended up making a second bearing block for a drum dampener after rushing, and using undersized pilot holes. As we can all see, (and duly laugh at my foolishness) I consequently split the block in two.

Ultimately this ends up taking twice as much time, so remember kids, do as I say not as I do, and take your time. MBI motto; If a jobs worth doing its worth overdoing.
