Thanks pal, yeah I'm swithering about putting insulation in or not. I should, but will probably wind up spending my pennies elsewhere and just putting on an extra layer! haha

Thanks chaps, I'm based just outside Aberdeen, I don't have a lot of pics on this phone and I'm away with work at the moment, but here is a couple snaps of my cutter, however poor they may be! Haha



P.s. ignore the state of the garage I'm somewhere between moving stuff out to the shed and working on this haha.

Hello all, quite new to model engineering specifically but have been machining odd ball things for years. Reading through the threads on here and there's so much good info and great projects, will definitely be seeking advice from some brighter chaps than me in the future.

Have just put up my shed so still settling in and finishing the insides but have a Myford ML7 to move in along with an Alpine DM25 Mill.

Current project is a Briquette cutter that runs off the briquette being fed through straight from the press, so no electrics and no human input once the press is running. We use a reciprocating saw at the moment but when you are making lots of briquettes at a specific size, that method doesn't make much sense and the commercial cutters are too pricey and bulky.

Anyway, enough rubbish from me. Hellothumbs up
