    Notguilty YourhonorNotguilty Yourhonor15 gün önce
    • Yes that’s correct but I was thinking printing them separately and use a soldering iron to glue them on. Slower possibly but could be printed at the same time as the vice.

      Notguilty YourhonorNotguilty Yourhonor12 gün önce
    • Then they would need a lot of support structure while printing. The printw cant print in mid air

Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Plus vs iPhone XS Max Speed Test & Camera ComparisonI saw my life branching out before me like the green fig tree in the story. From the tip of every branch, like a fat purple fig, a wonderful future beckoned and winked. One fig was a husband and a happy home and children, and another fig was a famous poet and another fig was a brilliant professor, and another fig was Ee Gee, the amazing editor, and another fig was Europe and Africa and South America,

  • The only thing I'm thinking is you guys really could have modelled some struts onto those vice prints that would have held them up in the casting chamber! Basically extra tree supports ala how slicers usually do for sla mini printing!

  • Quick tip for you. You can use the tail stock to apply pressure on the the die to keep it square with the shaft, whilst cutting the thread.

  • Will, the US does not use Imperial units. It is US customary units (USC). They have many differences, particularly historically.

    CourtCourt24 gün önce
  • So alec! Just a thought for potential future PLA castings. Model the sprus and risers and everything *in* the program and print them out and melt them together like you would with wax. PLA can easily be welded to other bits of pla with a soldering iron! Or You could model holes in the investment pla parts to more easily attach wax? Just some ideas! Oh, you could also use actual cut off bits of filament to do some really stringy supporty casts. You could also get the beefy 3mm diameter filament and use that as well!

  • Great collab. video! I think you need one more machine to cure the resin once it has been 3D printed if you want to make a cast out of it. P.S. Love your vids:)

  • Quick tip for you when your tap and dye use your tail stock for your guide . When you're using the tap you can use a live centre will go in the end of the tap where does little hole. When you are just using a dye you can just use the tailstock with no tools in and put it up against it.

  • Just a word for safety sakes from a machinist never use your file on a lathe from the top. It can catch and jamb it into your hands or other body parts turn the file around so it is cutting backwards and use it on the underside so its pulling away from you. Much safer. Just a tip from an old man love your videos guys keep safe have fun.
