    Meh - Just a little clean up

    Yet it always works out, the bride got a new kitchen and I got a couple gallons of floor paint. She has her floor and I have mine - Just so long as I remember those special words "Yes Dear"

    Meh - Just a little clean up

    A year and some months later - Not as shinny, stains here and there, still easy to sweep and most of all still doing the job of reducing the amount of chips carried into the house. Course the 'Bride' can still find other faults to point finger at me to which I always say- Thanks for pointing...

    Autodesk Fusion 360 or other free software?

    Fusion - I don't really make things, just like to do things. Getting a fundamental working knowledge of Fusion is a 'Do Thing' This new do thing is PCB. First bite was with Eagle, then noticed Fusion has PCB functionality and coupled with it's ability to G-Code, Hey, another bucket list 'Do...

    Fathers Day

    So Pop passed some four years ago but still can hear 'Where's my tools!' Hey Pop, found it and made a new box for it [how hard can making a box be?] She may be old, I can remember it for as long as I can remember and she still reads 1.00 from the gauge block. So Pop, I may not know always where...

    Just a Simple . . .

    Extra piston/cylinder pieces showed up in the mail I'm just a tad slow - Have made three center sections afore it dawned on me - Ah use a scrap piece to get the O-Ring width depth set, it'll go quicker . . . So once that was found, no more breaking the cylinder pushing it over the O-Rings...

    Just a Simple . . .

    Thought I'd take an existing plain model and change it up a bit for the grand-kids to play with. A simple Sterling. Started and ended up with And of course, just needed a little tweaking - Pop goes the piston tube - Proving once again, Fat Fingers defeat simplicity every time . . .

    Something Simple, Something Groove . . .

    Getting a little wet out in the Pacific Northwest, thought I'd give a simple Sterling a try. Use a made tool to make a tool . . To make a tool . . . To cut a groove . . . For the O-Rings to go in . . . Oh Boy -

    Fusion 360 for a beginner

    "the next 15 minutes searching for that button" When in the sketch workplace, hit the 'S' key to pull up the Sketch Shortcut Menu - enter desired term e.g. Sweep - into the search box. Language challenged that I am most of the terms in Fusion I had to look up to find language that made sense...

    Beam Engine (or so is the plan)

    Made another piece, actually two but we won't talk about the first one and not so sure I like the second one. Cutout four of those from 1/2 inch flat stock, shaped em to rough size 10 degree taper, J-B Weld two pieces together then tried a dremel 1/4 ball to do the final shaping...

    Meh - Just a little clean up

    After a few days to let the paint setup, time to put stuff back. Course 'bout half the stuff yarded out went into the back of the truck for a dump run. You collect stuff thinking you'll need it only to crowd yourself out of what used to be a comfortable environment. Floor sweeps up much nicer...

    Meh - Just a little clean up

    When the 'Bride' gives the you the side eye as to the chips and debris that track into the house, it becomes time appease. My hide-away is just a little 8 X 16 room off the garage, raw concrete just doesn't take to a sweeping too well. Emptied it to do something with the floor [Might as well...

    Beam Engine (or so is the plan)

    Always liked beam engines and now that my little 3 axis is in working order, time to see if I can make something like one - No plans , just winging it as I go along. Draw something up till I like it, then try carve it out of metal. Drawing is easy, put a 10 degree taper to the sides - I Like It...
