Title: Engineering, Design and Fabrication Service
Post by: Paul Inskeep on July 06, 2018, 06:41:08 AM
Most of you guys know I love to build stuff.

Lately I've gotten a handful of smaller jobs that require some Engineering (math/simulation), some 2D and 3D CAD work as well as fabrication. It seems like everyone in the motorsport community often times has this same need, so I figured I'd broaden it out a bit and post here to see if any of the VMSC members had something they had been dying to do but didn't have the time, knowledge or tools.

The current "box" I'm putting myself in, is the following:

Materials:
Aluminum
Steel
Stainless

Thicknesses:
up to 3/8"


Welding services:
MIG
TIG
ARC


CAD service:
2D and 3D models, drawings and simulations


Rates:
I can price per job, or by the hour (depends heavily on what it is)


I am trying to steer away from production work as I don't have the time resource. However 1 offs and concepts, even if fabricated elsewhere, would be in the wheel house of tasks I can complete all hours of the night. Along with that emergency repairs can be arranged if the situation is needing it.

If you need help with anything, send me a note via email (inskeepwp@gmail.com) and I'll let you know what I can do & when. Current backlog runs me out to the end of August for "big" projects. But I can always sneak an hour or 2 in somewhere to handle a urgent need.

Let me know
Paul

Random stuff I've done in the last 6ish months to give you an idea of capabilities:

Aluminum intercooler and intake piping
Various roll cages/roll bars
Repairs under BMW chassis (e36 & e46)
Fender Rolling
Chassis Crack repairs on Race Car
Machined pistol slide for red dot sight
Door cards and sunroof delete
and much more
