I needed to connect three 8020 aluminum profiles side by side seamlessly. Between two of them, I used T-nuts and accessed the hex head through a hole in the side. For the other connection I had to mill out a space for a nut to connect to the stud from the other profile. I fabricated a special steel shape to slide into the profile to hold the stud. #machinist #prototype #inventor #polyhedra #invention #fixturesandfittings #machinistlife #makemagic #buckminsterfuller #fab101 #milling #caltech #maker #anodized #metalcraft #kinetic #toolporn #machining #endmill #welding #manualmachinist #tigwelding #prototyper #aluminum #artforum #juxtapoze #highfructose #architecturestudents #mechanicalengineering #8020 @clickspring1 @jimmydiresta @caseyneistat @elonmusk @garyvee @deadmau5 @poetickinetics @world_of_engineering

Poreba 118”x27’ lathe for the oil industry! never seen a lathe this large in my life. You actually ride along the carriage when making a cut! Polish made I believe. Thanks @belmontmachinery Doug for showing me around a couple weeks ago! Put it on a pallet for me ha! #machinery #manualmachinist #instamachinist #machinist #oilindustry #porebalathes #metalwork #fabrication

On my quest to find #StudGirdles that clear center bolt valve covers I came up empty handed. So I decided to modify the ones I have (worked great on the old perimeter valve covers) to work with the new fabricated aluminum center bolt ones. #StudGirdle #SBC #Chevy #V8 #Chevrolet #Engine #Motor #Machinist #ManualMachinist #Machining #InstaMachinist #Bridgeport #BridgeportMill

I think my watch brothers are gonna dig this. I began machining the first prototype of a variant of my desk stand design (a single watch version). The spring extension mechanism works good. Enough pressure to hold the watch. Still working on the base design.

As a rule, I avoid heli-coils as a long term solution and nobody makes a 7/16-16 legit thread insert for Knucklehead heads. No problem just make one (or two actually). I'm converting the head bolt pattern back to stock #knucklehead after someone converted them to #panhead cylinder pattern. Thanks to @knuckbob for letting me borrow a tap while waiting for mine.

Took a few days away from this to make some upgrades to the mill- concrete mass and DRO being the main ones. Super excited about the DRO- literally made an order of magnitude difference to the time it took to do the top drive plate here vs the side wheel plates. It feels like a statement of intent for 2018. So I put together this loose mockup of the laser work so far. Should be done in a matter of days rather than weeks now! #machining #manualmachinist #digitalreadout #lasercutter #laseretcher #diodelaser #machinebuilder #diy #vslot #openbuilds #robot #scratchbuild

Middle drawer Monday again, a hodgepodge drawer of homemade thread gages, homemade tooling, lathe alignment tools and random good junk.

316L Stainless Steel Forging from start to almost finished. I am holding it on the leftover step from where the test ring was cut. Allows me to have an uninterrupted cut all the way down the OD. If I don't have to take a test ring, I have to match up the OD once I flip the part over. Sometimes challenging...
