I 3D Printed an ID expansion clamp. Machinist nerd will understand. I'm continuing to find new ways to integrate 3D printing into traditional machining and molding manufacturing. Being able to 3D print custom fixtures and clamps to hold machined parts speeds up the process and allows for much greater flexability. I can design a part with less focus on how to make the part and more on what will make the part more better!

Professional Development. CNC Machining on Aluminum @saundersmachineworks with @mechvantage and @fusion360team parametric solid modeling software. Thanks Kevin, Jared, and John! Special mention to Jed for providing moral support and canine “primary ring” security. Awesome hands-on machining training and user experience. We learned a ton and had a total blast with your team. We already placed the 6” x 8” x 1” precision 6061-T6 fixture block into service in our shop, and have something special in mind with the @tormach 700 handle we created. 🕶Come and Take It! 🕶.

Who needs to buy a saw when you have a mill. Would have been cooler if I went another .005" deep. #instamachinist @secotools @tormach

Prototype number 1 of the Prusa modular X carriage is taking shape. Need to work on the Shear Hog feeds and speeds a bit. #instamachinist #makersgonnamake #3dprinting

“Stacked plates are handled as a solid block in this operation. Aluminum plates 3” thick, 4’ x 8’ are bolted together, four high, and machines into blanks for aircraft structural members in 14 hours, which is a fractional of the time required by any other machining method. Work handling is simply itself. The sawing head swings out of the way to permit the use of an overhead crane for positioning blanks on tables. The 6000 lbs work piece needs no clamping or blocking to withstand the light feeding force involved in sawing, nor need the work be accurately located with respect to some reference point. It can be positioned for most convenient control of the sawing head in any area of the work and quickly be repositioned as the work progresses.” #sawing #saw #bandsaw #doall #oldschool #vintage #machines #machinetools #tools #aluminum #heavy #parts #machinist #manualmachinist #artist #studio #instamachinist #instaartist

Wow! Any guesses what I'll use this end mill for? I won't divulge the answer until the process works.
