Cylinder head machining

Postby Derek » Sat Sep 24, 2016 3:43 pm

Here is a shot of a custom cylinder head I produce. Lots of drilling and semi rigid tapping. I use the probing macros terry wrote for me to do the initial setup on the 4th axis as well as locating features on the raw casting.


I contour machine all of the combustion chambers. .005" step down.


I have a blog at That shows the whole process from initial design to where I'm at now.
