Home Machine Shop

If you need to drill a hole, cut, grind, sand, bend, sharpen, dislodge, paint, glue or attach together, or modify in any way any object around the house, but don't have the tools,  this service is for you.

As part of my Handyman Service partime business I have acquired drill presses, cutters, grinding, bending and other tools that are not commonly purchased at the average household. The "Home Machine Shop"  optimizes the use of these tools that are not used 100% of the time. These tools cannot be lent or rented, but for a small fee I can do that drilling, cutting, grinding, sanding, sharpening, etc. for you. 

At Smartupmyhome we take pride for our problem solving skills and creativity in the home automation and handyman services we provide to make your home more enjoyable.

Shower Tub Insert Saved with a 3D Printed Adapter

The drain grid hole for a shower tub insert was incorrectly cut (off centered and larger than needed). The dimensions of the hole were taken and an adapter with an oversized diameter was 3D designed and printed to house the drain grid and block the excess space. Regular RTV 100% Silicone was used to adhere (water proof) the 3D printed adapter to the shower tub insert.
