craftmethod Making more tap handles for @blakeshardciderco. My "new" tilt/angle table is precisely holding the fixture at a 2° angle. #instamachinist #precision #oldiron #cnc #castaluminum #taphandle #sandcast #hardcider #craftbeer #michigan 1d
  •   bmp1785 Is there a taper that's holding the part in the fixture? Thread mill? Tap? 1d
  •   craftmethod @bmp1785 There is a 10° draft angle on the tap handles, so I machined a dovetailed and tapered fixture that matches the tap handle. It works great and loading castings is quick and repeatable. It's amazing how all of those tapers work together to "bite" the part! One little tap with a mallet and its not going anywhere! I use this same fixture in a vise to flycut the faces for contrast. I'll tag you in an old post from when I was machining it. Good question! 1d
  •   bmp1785 Nice work. I think that first run of these is the first of your work I saw. 1d
  •   morganoliff Ok, I just spent 5 minutes understanding how this was a "tap handle" haha. and I've even made some before! @bmp1785 3h
  •   bmp1785 lol @morganoliff browse his feed there's some sweet pics from his original batch. @craftmethod 3h
