Re: Machinists discussion

^ nice.

nothing fancy, but made a spinning top. pretty fun project, just too bad i dont have anything i could make for my trucks.






might look different but its pics from a second top i built.




Spins so smoothly there is no visible movement.


spun for over 4 min on my glass table when i leveled it.

Re: Machinists discussion

Just started my machine tool classes last week. Gotta say love it so far. That spinning top is cool as hell. I plan to make a spare tire drop plate for my blaZeR2 before class is over. Tired of not being able to see out of the back window. Lol

Re: Machinists discussion

Nice knurls, that's something I need to get better at. But i need a decent knurling tool first.

Re: Machinists discussion

my 4th time actually using it. its very easy, cant really see how anyone cant do "good" knurling.
not sure how "good" the tooling was, but i suppose that has a large play in the quality. i always start out at .010 and increase by .010 each pass. just feed it manually and add a bit more each pass and you should be good.


Well this is interesting. we have this big rack of steel free to us to use, out of this rack, is a weird piece of 1 1/4" "stainless" looking round bar. its odd because its very light, not quite aluminum but for a 10 foot stick, it should weigh a good 40lb or more but doesnt. our instructor has no freaking clue where it came from, google the numbers, and its AMS-4965 TITANIUM!!! took ****ing 20 min to cut on the bandsaw, its crazy hard. so, i could not resist making a top out of it! lol. confirmed its titanium too, shoots a beautiful spray of bright white sparks when put on a belt sander.

took basically 6 hours to make this. its retarded hardened stuff. the edge where the cutting tool and metal meets had a tiny spark, then white hot metal shavings, that cooled to red hot, then "normal" color as it cut. and that was only taking .015 at a time! very "different" stuff for sure. no clue how much that stick of steel was.





this stuff is so hard, that the deflection was crazy. when i got to this spot, there was a .020 difference between one side and another. i had to do 22 passes without adjusting anything just to get it to level down even. it was taking off .0005 at a time or less each time too. just insane stuff to work with. you couldnt tell visually, it would always seem to take off the same material each pass and leave a long thin metal shaving.


did a test spot on the thicker part of the shaft. i had no idea how this would come out and didnt want to chance it. i put the tail stock close by to see how much the material was deflecting.


Finished product after what felt like forever.

i can assure you it can be done. ive only tried once with the fixed cheap chinese knurler that came with my "hobby" lathe, it turned out like shit. you have a dorian toolpost there and a floating knurler so i can bet tool quality makes a huge difference. not to mention machine rigitity, especially while knurling. my lathe is only a 10x22 and just barely 500lbs :

im curious why a machine shop bought treated titanium. thats funny

Try a CNC knurling too Sean,

They cut rather than roll, but Again machine and part rigidity is a big thing. try and have the tail stock in use.

the key is to feed in hard, don't stay on too long, than pull off twice as fast.

should note.. the only knurling i have ever done in a cnc was on stainless.

the school didnt buy that titanium, no way. we all have no clue how it got here, or how long its been here. all i know its badass and a unique metal to work with.

that's what I was thinking, at work we have tin coated carbide knurling tools with replaceable wheels that cut instead of forming. ill probably get one when a project demands knurls.

bean, you should grind a slot in that stepped rod and see if you can make a step drill with it. at the machining school I went to, we got a lot of things and stock donated from Honeywell, garret, etc, so id imagine it was something along those lines.

Re: Machinists discussion

lathe speed knob at school...


Chunk O' aluminum (you can see my plain boring speed knob, not fancy enough)


made 2 more for the machines that didnt have one.


set screw hole drilled/tapped as well.


Mill at school, one of 3. drilling some knuckles out for a buddies high steer conversion on his wrangler. had to get a tad creative supporting it.





press fit.


Tig welded (tad bit undercut on the bottom one



All this machine work makes me want to buy a mill/lathe lol. its very addicting.

Re: Machinists discussion

Nice work guys. I really miss getting to do some machine work since i got put into engineering. Its a pain in the a** at times, but its also something thats very rewarding.


Beandip, you look like your a natural at machining. I wasnt that lucky, but after screwing up a bunch i finally started to get a little bit better lol.
