eMachineShop.com Online Factory Boosts Customized Parts Horsepower for Automotive Do-It-Yourselfers

MIDLAND PARK, NJ -- (MARKET WIRE) -- March 29, 2006 -- eMachineShop (http://www.emachineshop.com), the world's first online factory for customized parts, is helping gear-heads ready their vehicles for the road and track, restore classic cars and prepare motorcycles for rides in the coming good weather.

eMachineShop.com is producing customer-designed automobile parts ranging from shifter brackets and linkages to brake dust shields and windshield wiper arms. Motorcyclists have created customized parts from handlebars and brake mechanisms to tank spacers and crankshafts.

"Customization of cars and motorcycles is extremely popular, and gear-heads often need to quickly, inexpensively and accurately obtain specialized parts made from steel, aluminum, brass, plastic and just about any other industrial material," said Jim Lewis, eMachineShop.com president.

"Automotive enthusiasts are a very demanding breed," continued Mr. Lewis, "and auto parts retailers often cannot meet their needs with off-the-shelf parts. Obtaining exactly the right part for an out-of-production 1958 Austin-Healey sports car, or a special saddlebag bracket for a Harley-Davidson low-rider, means looking in new places. eMachineShop.com is an innovative solution offering the easiest, most cost-effective way to turn ideas into real 3D parts at both prototype and production quantities. Car, truck and motorcycle applications are a large part of what we create," he said.

eMachineShop.com drives the solution

Until now, someone needing a custom part had to buy and learn expensive and complex CAD software, make technical drawings, locate a machine shop, find a way to transmit the drawings to the machine shop, discuss the design with an accomplished machinist, sift through numerous price quotations, and eventually get the part -- often paying much more than necessary while adding weeks of delay. Via the Internet, eMachineShop.com has put computing horsepower where it will do the most good -- right at the fingertips of the customizer, restorer, racing technician and shade-tree mechanic.
