Hey all.
I have been away for a short period of time , because i had to finish my education.

Now my title is Industrial technician/machinist, and 4 years of education is over now.

We had to make a project to show our skills, and i was so lucky to be put into a group where we should make a Gearbox Prototype.

We had free hands for the design, and after 9½ days hard work with 76hours at the schools workshop, and many many many hours in the evening, creating the docomtation, the we created a little gearbox with 2 gears.


As you will see at the pictures , everything is made from the bottom, the only limit was the fantasy :).

Our report was on 106 pages, but all of the hard work gave us the highest place on the character scale.

We were 4 men in the group. The 3 of us had 12 (A) for the project, and 12(A) for the individual test as well.

So double A`for us, and then we are in the fight for a prestigious award because of the high character.

The gearbox is first created in Solidworks 2009, and we also used Mastercam X4 for some of the construction.

Now i can begin making car parts again :).

Best regards Jens Pedersen

Amazing work.
Now when do we get a second gear set for our car :p then we can run 4.3:1 gears for acceleration, and engage a second gear set from you when we want economy/highway gearing.. 1:1 and 1.33:1 gears.. in between the Trans and rear end..

I really admire your machine work. I've been messing around with a Smithy 3 in 1 machine making little bits and pieces, but I really have no idea what I'm doing. If I started to make a gearbox like that it'd take me 9 1/2 years, not days.

Congratulations! Awesome work as usual. For some reason the cutting fluid reminds me of the 1st alien movie. LOL!!

Jens, I lived in the Nordric lands 1998-2000 so I understand how important that certification is. Congratulations indeed.

A friend there got a few minor certifications too (in electrical), folks asked him why - then he came out with a a small product that had some electrical connections, and it was all his.

Thanks for the positive feed back.

I can tell about my next crazy project after my custmo 7m is ready.

The plan is to open a std 5 speed gearbox from my Celica supra, and then make the spur gear Straight cut ,and the shift will be sequential.
I will also change ratio so it will be faster in 1.gear, and closer ratio in the rest of the gear.

But that is some thing i will make later...not now :).

Great news Jens, glad to see you now have the certs to back up the work the majority of us have seen that you are able to do.

The European system of vocational and engineering education is one I admire.

The tradition of creating your "Meisterstueck" (master piece) to prove your all-around skill is very cool. Only 12 days? Wow!

Are you already employed or will you go on the job hunt at a new firm?

My contract with the firm i am at now, is over 15/4-2010.

So after that i need a new job. I will try to find a job , and then perhaps start a new education this sommer as Production Technologist.
That is 2 years more at school, but after that i will be very high skilled, and many firms already searching for that type of people.

12 days???.....

No it was 9½ days we had from the beginning to the prototype was ready, all incl.
