An opportunity to practice my amateur machinist skills. I needed to machine a 1 inch hole in a block of aluminum to make this silly crushing machine.
The origin of this idea came from the desire to crush some hot wheels cars. In an earlier post, I created a hot wheels track for the office. It was a big success in my office and we race cars often. However, some cars are such poor performers that I felt a need to destroy them. Hence, this crushing machine.
