Re: Parting tool holder

Grizzly and Busy Bee are related by blood so lots of what Busy Bee carry are also sold by Grizzly. They seem to have similar parting tools. https://www.grizzly.com/products/Grizzly-Insert-Type-Parting-Blade/T10376 https://www.grizzly.com/products/Grizzly-Parting-Tool-with-Carbide-Insert/T10012 Pete...

Re: Drilling Hole In Sandblast Cabinet For Bulkhead Adapter

Is the fitting in the screenshot the one you are installing? Because according to that, the diameter is 10mm, right? So a 13/32" would work fine. I find that drilling into the side of something is hard work, so even though it takes a little longer, I start with a pilot hole, maybe 3/16", then step u...

Re: Parting tool used by Stefan Gottswinter

That sounds like good advice, Harold. I know even the stuff I like doing sometimes needs a break, especially when you hot a frustrating part. The past couple nights that I spent in the shop, I scrapped two parts. Each ended that night's events. Shut down and went in for the night. Luckily, work had ...

Re: Parting tool used by Stefan Gottswinter

Stefan used a guhring boring bar system and mentioned making other tools to fit it. Maybe that's the way to go. I could buy some standard size carbide blanks and grind similar to shapes, say grooving tools, with standard offsets so that the holder wouldn't need adjustment. Then swap out the tools ea...

Re: Parting tool used by Stefan Gottswinter

There are a lot of things I wish I'd have had an interest in as a kid. To be honest though, I wonder if it would have become like a lot of the things I was interested in back then. I grew up designing and installing custom stereo system. Made more doing that than my real job waiting tables. Started ...

Re: Parting tool used by Stefan Gottswinter

Now I have to research Nikcole! Edit: ok, I'm back from checking out Nikcole inserts at msc. Those look pretty nice. I would be too afraid of breaking one to ever use it though! Almost $15/edge! I'm sure the phorn stuff is about like that too. I didn't look yet. Maybe one day when this stuff starts ...

Re: Parting tool used by Stefan Gottswinter

He made his own holder and acknowledged that it's not exactly ideal but works. That cost vs. Benefit thing applies to a lot of what we do as hobbies. I could definitely see me just dreaming of a lot of neat things like these. Sometimes, though, the knowledge of a tool design comes in handy in other ...

Re: Parting tool used by Stefan Gottswinter

Not the same but at least I have a better idea what I'm looking for now. Of course, you may have noticed I'm not opposed to saving money if I can do the same thing another way, so there's a good chance I'll never buy any of their tools. I still like to read up on them though. Never know when the job...

Re: CNC tolerances

The pva in it is a release agent, so yeah it gets used for all kinds of things. You have to have something the print will stick to when it's hot or you'll get nowhere, right? But it needs to let go after or you risk damaging the print getting it off. Using blue tape in the beginning, we had prints t...

Re: Diacro Model 24 (24" x 16ga steel) finger brake - making fingers

The only areas the hardness should matter much is where it's contacting the work. If you do a lot of hard stuff or tough to bend still like stainless, I might expect it to deform the edge a little, but I've made a lot of parts in different materials with brake clamping bars made of mild steel angle,...

Re: Parting tool used by Stefan Gottswinter

That's! Yeah, I was not finding anyone remotely close searching for pehorn or pihorn or piehorn. What he used couldn't work on thick parts but the thin profile would be real nice at times.

Re: CNC tolerances

Despite the backlash I get for it when I say so, I still use hairspray on my glass bed. Almost never have a failed print due to bed adhesion and they pop right off when cool still. Stupid idea but it works, so...
