Finally, finished an idea I’ve had kicking around for a little while. I vacuum formed some styrene over a stepper motor circuit board, to be a quick custom project enclosure.
I formed it directly over the circuit board. After a little trimming and sanding, the cover fits great.
Milled a quick wooden Lego experiment. I can’t believe it fit the first try. Heavily influenced by Notcot.
More to come.
I’ve been trying to curve small metal pieces without shelling out for a slip roll. CNC’d some male and female banks for the arbor press, and pressed some test pieces. The results were just meh.
There was some crimping that I’m not crazy about. Good in a pinch though. Maybe I’ll just break down a buy a roller.
This part started out as a quick demo on how to drill into a pipe (found on the ITP Fab site), but has morphed into something more. I’m thinking robot head (of course) or some sort of space/diving helmet.
I started with an off-cut piece of aluminum speed rail tubing (this stuff is everywhere around ITP), drilled a 1.5″ diam hole with a hole saw and jig, turned it on a metal lathe, and then made a retaining ring. I’m particularly proud of the ring: 4 evenly spaced holes, tapped for 6-32 threads, and secured by set screws.
These parts has no purpose other than getting my chops back and the pure joy of milling parts.
Experimenting with some round tins and micro toggle switches. They kind of remind me of Krull.
