Machining Hydraulic Cylinder Head Plates Part 2
Abom79


Published on May 6, 2017
3 part series showing the machining steps to build a pair of hydraulic cylinder heads for a custom cylinder that is not available anymore. In this episode we'll continue the work on the head plate and I'll show you how I hand grind a tool bit to machine the o-ring groove inside of the face groove. This is the o-ring that seals the hydraulic pressure from escaping the barrel.
This cylinder we be a spare unit for the customer, something important in industry so that you minimize downtime in the event of a failure of the component.

Laura Kampf


Published on May 27, 2017
Last week I had the unique opportunity to work a day in Adam Savages Workshop-the Cave.
I decided to make a Leather Case for my new Macbook

For the unlikely case that you haven´t already - go subscribe to TESTED : https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCiDJ...

This is my second time working with leather-I made a similar case for my old mac but never documented the process.
I am very happy with the result!

Due Diligence - Spec House EP.01
Essential Craftsman


Published on May 31, 2017
A few thoughts here regarding the type of due diligence that should be done before you buy a building lot. Our lot is on a hillside, which makes soils, erosion, and water movement a larger than usual concern. All of these things can be addressed and resolved, but at a cost.

Try and understand them as fully as possible before you buy the land so you have an idea what the true costs of site prep will be.

If you don't know what we are talking about - watch this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mn4L_...

Hire Surveyor / Avoid Mistake - Spec House EP.02
Essential Craftsman


Published on Jun 10, 2017
A boundary survey will tell you where your property lines are. This is very important in our case since we will be building a retaining wall on the south side of our lot. If we built this in the wrong spot, the neighbor would have a very valid complaint which could be VERY expensive to fix.

Carl Sweeden is my land surveyor, and he does a great job. Listen to him talk briefly about his career, and think if this could be a path for you or someone you know.

Thank you for the feedback and support, and THANK YOU Patrons!

I pull out one of my viewer given Polish made mics and use it to compare measurements on a few 1" gauge blocks. Last I share some video I filmed a few months ago of some single point metric threading, how to disengage the half nuts and then line back on the thread.
