    AvE



    Published on Sep 28, 2016
    We have a look at the most common drill bits, how they work and when to use them. We go through bit selection for large and small holes in wood, plastic, brass, aluminum, bronze, steel and tool steel. We have a look at tungsten carbide and HSS bits.

    Lowlights include:
    -Poking fun at woodworkers
    -split point versus chisel point
    -what size pilot to drill
    -hole saws and slugging bits
    -Drilling Wood, Plastic, Steel, brass, bronze, tool steel and stone

    Vulcan Locomotive: Taking Apart for Boiler Repairs
    Keith Rucker - VintageMachinery.org



    Published on Sep 30, 2016
    We got word a few weeks ago that we have a serious problem with the tube sheet in the boiler on our 1917 Vulcan Iron Works steam locomotive at the Georgia Museum of Agriculture. The entire sheet needs to be replaced so we have been in the process of tearing down the locomotive to remove the boiler. This video is an update on the progress to date.

    Eutalloy Repair on Rotorshaft Part 1
    Abom79



    Published on Oct 1, 2016
    This is some video footage from my archives that I never used. It's about using another welding process with metal powder by Eutectic called Eutalloy. It involves a special torch that heats the metal and flows metal powder into it to form a puddle and build up the surface, kind of like brazing.
    I used this technique on a shaft repair on a electric motor shaft that was badly work and corroded.
    This process is very beneficial to many different applications, it's just very rarely used. Maybe we can come up with some more jobs around the shop to showcase this neat process.

    Turning Montmartre flat into adaptive space perched on Paris
    Kirsten Dirksen



    Published on Oct 2, 2016
    When tasked with adding space, functionality and light to a small-ish apartment on Montmartre- the tallest hill in Paris-, architect Alex Delaunay embraced the neighborhood’s stair culture (the local Metro has a 112-step spiral staircase, Montmartre’s Rue Foyatier has 300 steps) and created a multifunctional staircase wall to celebrate the “local climbing culture”.

    After opening up the apartment by removing all the non-structural partitions, Delaunay took advantage of the apartments’ longest space to create a multi-use structure housing a small office, closet and geometrical storage stairs leading up to the former-attic-turned bedroom.

    The furniture wall also has a window to allow daylight to pass from one side of the building to the other. The rounded stairs are sculpted from MDF (medium-density fibreboard) for a highly sculptural and affordable construction.

    Located on the top floor of a seven-story walk-up, the apartment’s walls were cluttered with chimney flues from the apartments below (common in Haussmann-era buildings). Delaunay opened up the walls between the flues to add storage space.

    In the kitchen the architect opened up more space between flues for cabinets. In contrast with the all-white walls and brushed stainless steel countertops the floors reflect the owner’s career in fashion (working with color swatches): it’s covered in 25 natural rubber strips in 14 different colors.

    Rubik cube flat flips office, storage, dining & bedroom in SF
    Kirsten Dirksen



    Published on Oct 16, 2016
    When Donnie Wang bought his 530-square-foot studio apartment in San Francisco’s Financial District, he was single. When his now wife, Nicole Chui-Wang, moved in, he needed to stretch his bachelor pad to cover dinner parties, overnight guests, work from home (at times, for two) and his stylist wife’s large wardrobe.

    He called on his friend, architect Peter Suen, who pulled in his friend, designer Charles Irby, who began to design a kind of lean-to for grownups for his living room. They prefabbed a morphing wood and cement cube in Irby’s Oakland design studio ICOSA (he CNC’ed the formwork) outfitted with a loft bed, murphy bed, standing desk, closets and lots and lots of storage.

    The wood-and-cement loft now serves as the couple’s bedroom (the lofted bed), guest room (the murphy bed), dining room, office for Peter (with large whiteboard on underside of murphy bed) and multimedia room (the loft also serves as seating for their ceiling-mounted projector).

    “San Francisco’s kind of a funny place,” explains Suen. “In the rest of the country they might be in their legitimate starter home, but in San Francisco you’ve just got to deal with just, you know, ‘San Francisco’. So they really maximized what you would think is a small place, but it’s really now super customized just for them.”

    Make Your Own Thin Rip Push Jig for a Table Saw
    WorkshopAddict



    Published on Oct 20, 2016
    Visit our blog at: http://www.workshopaddict.com/tools/
    Ripping thin stock on the table saw can be a dangerous operation if you don't have the proper safety accessories and protocol. For discussion purposes, we are going to classify "thin stock" as any material under 1.5" wide. When cutting material on the table saw with the fence so close to the blade, there isn't any room for your fingers to safely push the material through the saw. The use of an accessory to push the material through the saw is the safest way to complete the job. You can purchase a factory made accessory from multiple companies or make your own!

    Thin stock accessories - There are many options and styles of accessories to push material through a table saw. You have your standard push stick, Microjig GRIPPER, and various other store bought/shop made designs that push the material through and also hold the material down.

    We have nearly everyone of these in the shop now, or at least have tried them in the past. Some styles work better for others and other are completely wrong for certain tasks.

    The biggest draw back from these other safety accessories, is they are able to be put anywhere on the table saw and the operator has to consciously place it in a location where it won't get hit by the saw and keep it in that location when pushing the material through the saw. That is where our simple jig shines!


    Take advantage of your table saw fence

    The table saw has a sturdy fence that is in the same place in relationship to your material when you use the saw. Your material runs along it at all times, we can use this to our advantage!

    The jig we created is super simple. It consists of three (3) pieces that wrap around the fence and a fourth (4th) piece that plays the role of the handle. The concept is super simple, the jig rides along the fence and is restricted to the path of the fence. The user doesn't need to worry about the location of the accessory in relationship to the blade when he/she is placing it on the their workpiece or while pushing the material through.

    To use the jig, you simply place it over the fence when you are mid way through your cut and push it away from the front of the saw and past the blade. The sides of the jig (that wrap around the fence) act as your push stick. They catch the material and push it past the blade. Meanwhile your hand is safely on the handle away from the spinning blade.

    Simple construction

    The construction can't be any easier. With two sides, top, and a handle this jig can be made within 20 minutes using up that scrap you have been keeping around the shop.

    Our first iteration of the jig consisted of all 1/2" MDF pieces. After using the jig a bit, we realized we could replace one side with a thinner side (we used 1/8" hardboard) and that would allow us to get even closer to the blade without sacrificing any strength or safety.

    The joints on this jigs were butt joints tacked in placed with CA glue and then pre drilled and had 3 screws per joint. It is important to use pan head screws or add a washer to the screws when securing the hardboard. There is not enough thickness for a countersink and maintaining its strength.

    Engineer's Little Black Book http://amzn.to/2efoRP0

    This week I try my hand for the first time at electrolysis for rust removal. This is a process I watched a few guys do so I figured I should give it a try myself. Cleaning up the tools from the last episode. I also have some machining clips in there from a big rod clevis I been working on. Also in the mix is a few words about Stella including some viewer donations and gifts.
    Thanks everyone for your support!

    Gearbox Shaft for Well Drilling Part 1
    Abom79



    Published on Oct 22, 2016
    This video will be a short series on the final machining for a shaft I started years ago. It goes into a gearbox used for drill water wells. This was a spare I started a while back and now it's time to get it finished up. The machining will include steady rest work, facing, turning, face grooving, threading, internal square threads, and milling keyways.
    Follow along as we turn this piece of 4140 into a finished part.
