    Farm Boy running

    flywheel stl files

    Thank you, not needing a fly wheel now, but still downloaded one file, never know! :-) Did someone try to print in PLA with a very low infill and leave the printed piece in the mold? Like a "lost wax" or "lost foam" casting. It would waste the plastic part, but maybe make the molding easier...

    So as I see you did not split it in two halfs (upper and lower), but the bearings are inserted from the outside with a sort of flange. I think I give this a go for the first trial. :-) Thank you for this inspiration. Greetings Timo

    That looks very interesting. I was not aware of that machine brand. Can you mount hobs with different inner diameters? As I understand for hobbing worms the hob is almost parallel to the work piece? Similar to pair two bolts with their heads pointing in oposite directions and then spinning on...

    Hello, I am only using a vertical band saw. I had bit frustration with the cheap blades, because in the hobby I sometimes cut the "mystery steel" and it can ruin a carbon blade in a pinch. So I asked the people where I buy my steel were they buy their blades, they gave me the contact of their...
