  • Machining a Replacement Casting Part 1

    29:54

    One of the parts off a gearbox housing got broken so I decided to cast a new piece and machine it. Do to the intricate shape of this piece I wanted to try the casting method verses machining it from a blank piece of steel.

  • Machining a HUGE part on our HAAS VM3!

    5:14

    This is our Autodesk CAM Challenge Contest Submission! We're machining a GIANT A out of aluminum and shedding some LIGHT on it (pun intended). We glued two chunks of billet together with H8000, built a 2:4:6 fort to protect our Renishaw tool setting probe in case our tried and true SUPER GLUE TECHNIQUE failed, and WAILED on it with a Korloy Pro-X Mill a.k.a. The Ripper. Last but not least, we used highly technical art skills (colored with Sharpies) and flipped a switch to give our project that unmistakable, Autodesk multi-color look. EFFIN' A!

  • Machining hydraulic cylinder head for CAT 651 Tractor Scraper | Part 1

    21:40

    This video is Part 1 of heavy duty machining a new hydraulic cylinder head for a CAT 651 Tractor Scraper apron cylinder. In this video we are machining the first side of a 140mm chunk of steel plate. We started with drilling out the centre hole then lots of interrupted cuts and chip breaking to turn down the outer diameter. We then machine a recess groove before boring out the centre hole and machining the internal rod wear ring groove.

  • Reviving a part from 1972---Large Machining

    8:32

    Love when these type of jobs come through the shop. Customer sent in a drawing from 1972 asking for a quote with no casting available and no model. I modeled and programmed the CNC work in Mastercam. Manual Turning on our large Poreba. Drawing was terrible but the job went smooth. More than half the material was removed. I'm more impressed that guys in the the 1900's made these parts without any fancy equipment. It's like reaching back in time and sweating on a part that wasn't sweat on for decades. I feel connected to the last guy that made this part. Call me weird if you must. I'm obsessed with machining and am thrilled that people like to watch my work.

  • Holding threaded items for machining in the metal lathe or mill

    7:29

    Techniques to hold threaded work for machining. This can include bolts, threaded rod, or many other items such as tool parts or parts you have made. Threads can be easily damaged by the jaws of a chuck. There are various methods of protecting the threads from damage such as wrapping then in sheet metal such as aluminum, making a split bushing, split nut, or collets. Here I discuss those methods and show a thread holding collet that I made for my projects. Thank you for watching.

  • Custom made Boss Hoss front end || Machining a decoration piece step-by-step

    9:18

    I made a one-off unique front end to a V8 powered Boss Hoss motorcycle as a part of Bomber Magazines streetfighter project.
    Here's a video from machining couple of decoration pieces under the lower yoke - just to give it more size.

    Do notice that the front end is not completed at this video. It is still just at the mock up stage.

    Normally I would made a custom clamp for the machining of the bottom side of the pieces - but at the moment I didn't have ANY pieces for making one. That's why I used those universal clamps. Not the best way, but I got the job done. Also the drilling and tapping the threads [for clamping of the piece to front shock] is missing from the video.

    If you're into machining, making in general, motorcycles or just videos like this - consider subscribing the channel. Thanks!

    In this first episode of a 3 part series I start the depthing tool project by making the bed for the tool, as well as the carrier bolts.

    Plenty of lathe work, milling, drilling and use of a Vertex rotary table with a shop made fixture plate (based on Frank Ford's design)

    I'm following WR Smiths design for the depthing tool. You can find plans and a description for it in his book Clockmaking and Modelmaking Tools and Techniques (link below).

    Abbreviated Transcript:

    00:19 If you need to depth wheels and pinions that are already fixed on their arbors, or maybe made from a pinion wire, then this is the tool you'd need.
    01:03 And when in place, they accept runners, that with simple bushings, act as temporary arbors on which wheels, pinions and even escapements can be mounted to perform the task of depthing.
    01:48 I cut off a piece of stock, and started the job by squaring it up on the mill. And then I found the edge and using the DRO, located and drilled the end holes that will define the central slot.
    02:02 I used an undersize slot drill to roughly open up the slot first and you can see I'm taking pretty shallow cuts, just nibbling away at it really.
    02:31 My mill is quite light duty. I can get good results from it, but I do need to nurse it along when cutting slots. That took care of the bulk of the metal that needed to be removed.
    03:15 The adjustment screw is supposed to run right down the center of the slot, and it will really stand out, if it's not right down the middle, so I took quite a bit of care positioning and clamping the work for the next step. The top end was then drilled and tapped for that screw.
    03:49 And at this point I nearly got myself into a bit of trouble. I'm using a carbon steel tap here, and it was a mistake; the tool steel is just too tough for it. I could feel the tap was right on the edge of snapping off with every turn; not a nice feeling!
    04:13 That extra bit of time spent on the setup was worth it; the thread came out right down the middle. This is my version of Frank Fords rotary sub table. I've put a link to it in the description box below.
    04:41 the table axis. and best of all, there's plenty of room on the table for dowel pins and clamps to hold everything down. It took a bit of time to make, but It's made the table so much more usable.
    05:36 The 2 carrier bolts were made next, and these are probably the most difficult parts to make in terms of accuracy. The underside and top surfaces need to be perfectly true to each
    05:45 other, and perpendicular to the bore for the tool to work correctly. So this part will need to be finished between centers. But a lot of it can be roughed out first, and some of the features machined before that happens.
    07:19 When the tool is in use, the set screw will hold the runners in place. But its going to come in very handy in a moment, to help finish off the part.
    08:04 And here's why that set screw is so helpful: I can use it to mount the part onto this little arbor for the next operation. With the part running on its bore between centers,
    09:09 The result of all of this between centers operation, is that those two flat surfaces that are critical to the tools accuracy, are now true with each other, and also perpendicular to the bore.
    09:48 And thats the carrier bolts done. In the next video I'll make the knurled carrier nuts and the adjustment screw

  • Machining a Machine Tool: Rebuild Back to spec Part 2

    27:30

    In this video I work on the first machine face of trying to square up the John Doe Shaper. This project came to me courtesy of Mike Wiggins at The Backyard Machine Shop. This rough old shaper has seen a lot of wear and I volunteered to take on the challenge of seeing if I couldn't get it back in tip top shape. This is the kind of big jobs a big machine like my G&L should excel at. Holding flat and proper geometry proves quite the challenge for me as I am only able to hold roughly +-0.00075 error in flatness over the 2ft by 1ft area/ It was fun trying different things to see how good I could get it. I guess I am slightly closer to being able to call myself a toolmaker? :-)
    PS. I am curious to hear how good or bad people think the results are and also methods that maybe could have been used to get even better results. I hope you enjoy and thanks for watching!!

  • My 6-71 Blower rebuild, Part 15: Custom machining a Magnesium carb adapter plate.

    6:27

    I actually completed the carb plate about a year ago, but wanted to complete the main blower rebuild videos first, so that people did not think that I was procrastinating so much that I would never finish the blower itself.

    Years ago, I made another plate like this by hand, mostly on a drill press, from a very long piece of Magnesium. The plate was actually long enough to make two plates in case I messed up on the first. My first plate was a success, so I had enough stock left over to make another plate, at some point in the future. Fast forward about 25 years, and here we are, with another blower build needing a carb plate.

    My last engine ran great with the thin 4-hole carb adapter plate on it, got very good gas mileage (11 mpg) for a blown Big Block and it kept the carburetors as low as possible. I used this project as a good learning opportunity to make a relatively complex part (complex for me) to machine on the Bridgeport CNC, to keep an early vintage look to the finished assembly. Although Blower Drive Service makes very nice parts, a modern cast plate with the “BDS” logo machined into it does not look vintage in any way. I made LOTS of mistakes in Fusion 360, as this was my first live part done in Fusion, but in the end I got everything figured out, and I understand the CAM section in Fusion, much better now. I really love the look of machined Magnesium, and yes, I will either have to polish it up after a few years, or just live with the tarnished surface that will accumulate on the plate after it slowly tries to consume itself as a result of contact with the atmosphere.

    This plate was a very satisfying accomplishment, and I was very relieved to get to the finished part, without making any mistakes that would cause me to destroy my only piece of Magnesium stock.

    Finally, Magnesium chips are VERY dangerous. Even as careful as I was, I still had a handful of chips that I absent mindedly put into a plastic garbage can after surfacing the plate. A few weeks later I was cutting off a piece of stock on the chop saw, and a single spark bounced over my shoulder and lit up the Magnesium in the plastic garbage can. I knew very well from past experience that you cannot extinguish a Magnesium fire with water, so I immediately grabbed the garbage can and ran it out the back door. Unfortunately, the bottom of the can burned through right before I cleared the carpet at the back door, leaving a small melted spot in the ugly brown carpet. Well, we should have put new carpet in this house 5 years ago anyway...
