Did I get that three steel billet welded up?This is part 2 of the Wrought Iron Twist Seax video where I attempt to make Turkish Twist damascus using 1095, 15n20 and mild steel.Copper guard, bloodwood handle. Anxiety drives me to ancient traditions but, ultimately, a knife is forged.
Making some raindrop pattern Damascus steel for an upcoming project. Curious about Artistic Blacksmithing, Forging, Metal Working or Bladesmithing. This elegant 3 minute video is worth the watch for you to learn.
So you just got your first TIG machine and you're ready to stack. But wait! Not so fast. What else do you need? What sizes of what colors in what grades work? There's a lot of answers but we at The Fabrication Series like to simplify it. Start with this and we'll see you on the other end of the bead.
Curious about laser level? Watch the demo and Learn How To Use Laser Levels. In surveying and construction, the laser level is a control tool consisting of a laser beam projector. The tool is leveled according to the accuracy of the device and projects a fixed red or green beam about the horizontal and/or vertical axis.
A lead screw usually has a longer pitch and smoother surface, resulting in much higher efficiency. Also because of the longer pitch, higher linear speeds are obtained. All you need to know is a lead screw is best for anything non structural. Trade off between Threaded Rod & Lead Screws is cost and availability.
I set out to build my own musical instruments, starting first with a drum made using a pig hide and maple wood. Andy George will discover what it takes to make everything from scratch. His mission is to understand the complex processes of manufacturing that is often taken for granted and do it all himself.
Curious to learn about PLA aka Poly Lactic Acid use in biodegradable plastics. Watch me explore the world of plastics and polymers by making a few basic plastics from biological sources I've collected before, and with the help of the Center for Sustainable Polymers at the University of Minnesota.
Airplane models that were designed to use brushed motors can enjoy a huge boost in performance with an upgrade to brushless power. Most modern, electric-powered RC airplanes utilize brushless motors for propulsion. And why not? Brushless motors are much more efficient than their brushed cousins.
Adam is super excited for a new tool just installed in the cave: The 1968 Bridgeport mill! We stop by the shop to get a tour of the new machine and learn how Adam plans on using it for future projects and One Day Builds.
