Default Homemade valve re-grinding machine.

My dad wanted his valves re-ground for his D16Y7 turbo build, so he made his own valve grinding machine.

Dremel, three teflon blocks, protractor for the angles, scrap wood for the base, scrap piece of wood with a hole cut in it and then split, hose clamp.

Pretty ghettooo...

Valve before;

And after;

Obviously the closest one is the ground one

What do you think? Does the job!

Congrats, you get my first post on the Forum. new guy to this forum, but been on VWVortex for years.
I think its quite the awesome little homemade setup you have there. Only thing I would make sure of though, is to make sure the bits are very hard/abrasive and new so they are uniformly ground so your grinds are spot on and even.
You could possibly even try and attempt 3-5 angle valve jobs with this if you have the confidence and wouldn't be emotionally destroyed if while trying/testing it out and something went catastrophically wrong.
But great job anyway man, and good luck with it!!
