Homemade  Press Brake for Harbor Freight 20 Ton Shop Press
 
03:52
This is a brake I made for my press. I know there are a couple out there on the web. I think it was around $70 in materials. It went together faster than I anticipated and it works well. I have a low-profile HF air/hydraulic ram on this. Not the standard 20 ton press, but is hands free.
Quick Tent Follow-Up:  16x20 Davis Tent
 
03:25
Just wanted to show our setup with various cots on our first family "camping trip". We were camping at a formal place with lawn, but it was fun. There were natural hot springs nearby and we went swimming all day. If you want your comments to remain, please do not use foul language.

Rocket Stove Modification Tests Before Building Version 4
 
11:49
I wanted to test a couple of things before building v4 of the rocket stove. Both tests were a success and gave me valuable information. I hope it helps you out. The idea for the vortex option came from caotropheus. Check out his channel. He has a lot of rocket stove videos. If you want your comments to remain, do not use foul language.

Custom Weather vane
 
02:44
This is a weather vane a customer ordered. He wanted the corvette, peace symbol, and all. He hasn't seen it yet, but I hope he likes it. He is planning on painting it himself.
16x20 Canvas Wall Tent from Davis Tent & Awning

Neighbor training a red-tail hawk
 
03:50
Just a fun clip. I built a perch the other day for a neighbor and wanted to see the hawk he was training. He has his falconry license and recently captured this guy. Pretty cool to see up close.

Homemade Sheet Metal Bending Brake
 
08:46
I have needed a sheet metal brake for some time. Finally built one. Easily bends 16 gauge cold rolled steel. I think 14 gauge would start to push it to its limits.

Tree spikes (fertilizer) -- My method of embedding them in the ground
 
01:34
The store tells you to put a plastic cap on the end and hammer them into the ground... this doesn't work very well. Years ago I put this together (the handles were this year's addition). This method has been working well for me for years. Thought I would post a quick video of this to show you how I do it. Perhaps it will help someone out there (which is the purpose of this video).
Welding Table Overview

Torchmate 2x4 -- Cutting out a sprocket
 
01:52
This is a sprocket I designed, different from the one in my other, previous video. This was for my brother's neighbor. Had to clean a slight bevel up on each tooth after it was cut (flap disc on an angle grinder), but the whole cleanup process took about 1 minute. Chain fits perfectly. This was fun!
Lego Table
 
06:40
Lego table inspired by the following blog: http://alittleofthis---alittleofthat.blogspot.com/2014/06/diy-lego-table.html I found her cutout measurements a bit loose. Watch the end of the video for my cutout dimensions that provide a tighter fit. If you want your comments to remain, do not use foul language.

Homemade Chop Saw Stand
 
04:00
This is a chop saw stand I recently completed so that I don't have to cut metal on the ground anymore. The basic design came from a guy (Denny) out on WeldingWeb.com I like the idea and used it in building my version of the stand.
Rebuilding Spindle Arms For The Go Kart
 
12:47
Had a grade 5 bolt sheer off, which was part of the spindle. Very lucky the driver wasn't going fast when it happened. This is the process I go through in recreating them with Grade 8 bolts.

Arachnid Gokart Update -- Back End Rebuild
 
06:45
Had to rebuild the backend for the following reasons: 1. Add more bearings on the axle to distribute the weight. Too much weight for just one pair of bearings. 2. Bent the axle, had to extend the bearings further out so there was less leverage on the axle to bend it. 3. Had to add a jack shaft for the 40 series torque converter.

Quick Fix -- Welding Cast Iron
 
06:19
I don't know how much you are supposed to preheat cast iron to, but it has worked well for me a couple of times. Preheat, weld, cool down slowly. These are the steps I go through.

Collapsible Trailer Bunk Beds

My apologies in advance for the jumpiness of the video and not showing the complete build. I filmed most of it in 4K which my computer didn't like at all. It was a nightmare to edit.

Prototype Tent Stove -- Yet More Mods
 
14:08

Spare Tire Mount For A Cargo Trailer
 
04:18
The dealer had a spare tire mount for $40, and it was poorly built at that. It was a cut piece of steel (the cut was a hack job) with a couple of bolts welded to it. I created this for a fraction of the cost. I spread the weight of the spare over a larger area too. If you want your comments to remain, do not use foul language.

Building a bike rack (steel)
 
08:06
Neighbor needed a bike rack. Took 3-4 hours to do this, and around 1/3 of the time was probably just cleaning the oil/grease off of the steel. Dimensions mentioned in the latter part of the video
Product Review -- Geocel Proflex --
 
07:39
My review of Geocel ProFlex. I had a leak on my trailer I needed to fix. I wanted a good product that will last many years. Here is what I found.

Torchmate 2x4 -- Cutting jig for bending round bar
 
02:35
Torchmate 2x4, Hypertherm Powermax 1250 G3, cutting 1/4" plate at 45 amps, 40 ipm, 130 v for my Arc Voltage Height Controller. I stacked these two together and plug welded them together. Later this week I plan on using it to bend 3/8" round bar against it for a production run of some items I am making.
Recently completed upgrades for my Torchmate 2x4
 
09:17
First is a computer station that I built heavily utilizing the Torchmate. Second is cable carriers purchased from Torchmate. I looked into purchasing them from McMaster Carr, but TM had them for about the same price, plus I got some hardware to mount them with.

How to cut glass
 
05:55
I was cutting this glass (neo-ceram) and decided to make a video of it. I used to cut glass and mirror for years and years while in college. It is really easy, and not much to it, but I hope some find this video useful. Cheap glass cutters require more pressure to cut. You should oil as you cut. The nice cutter, such as the one I have here, doesn't take much pressure and oils as I cut. Don't forget your gloves, because glass is sharp (that should take care of the youtube safety patrol :P ) If you want your comments to remain, do not use foul language.

Torchmate CAD/CAM: Custom Gussets for the new Bearing Hangers
 
12:37
Design and cutting new gussets for the gokart. The bearing hangers are so long I needed to add some gussets to help stabilize lateral movement. The video shows some tricks with creating the gussets. Enjoy.
Torchmate 2x4 with a plate marker -- initial tests
 
04:55
Still refining my process, but here are some of my first attempts at using the plate marker. I plan on posting some setup information later this week hopefully. I ran the plate marker at 40 IPM, and that seems about right. I may play with it +- 10 IPM, but for now that works. I tried 75 IPM, and that is fine if you are doing large details, but with small, finer details you will want to move a lot slower. If you wish to download the dxf, see my other video where I am designing this. It has the link. Free of charge.
Cutting 1/2" Steel and introduce my next project
 
05:24
It has been a few weeks since I uploaded a video, so thought I would put a basic part up. It is half inch plate, which I don't cut often. I also introduce my next project, which I hope to start working on tomorrow (Saturday). If you want your comments to remain, please do not use foul language.

Constructing A Custom Window Well Cover
 
05:37
In continuation with a previous video where I designed this window well cover (crooked window well that I have never seen in person), I created this brief video showing some of its construction. I know it moves fast with lots of fades, but hope you enjoy it.

Torchmate CAD/CAM:  Getting .dxf files from other CAD programs cut ready
 
09:37
This addresses some common things that I need to do to .dxf files from other CAD programs in order to get them "cut ready", or ready to the point where I can apply a tool path to them. I almost always need to manipulate plasmaspider files, and some more than others. This is a walk through on how I accomplish that.
Bike Rack v. 2 (steel)

Gokart update -- Adjustable motor mount
 
04:26
Found that after mounting the motor I didn't have a sufficient way to tension the chain, so I removed the old motor mount and incorporated it into an upgraded motor mount that allows me to adjust the engine enough to tension the chain properly.

Torchmate CAD/CAM & Sprocketeer 2.0: Designing a sprocket
 
14:32
Just a video showing techniques I use to copy a sprocket I have for my go kart. There are probably a thousand different ways to do this, but I hope you find it useful. If I were to cut this out, I would refine the edges a bit on a sander or with a disc grinder. It is mild steel, and so I wouldn't try to harden and temper it as I don't know how much good it would do due to lower carbon content. Plasma, however, does cause some nitrate hardening around the edges, and I hope that would help it hold up...... I may just have to test it to really know how it would hold up.
Rocket Stove in the making -- Version 1
