CutlerFab Shop Thread
 
This thread will highlight some of the more creative aspects of any build I'm working on. Life has become too busy to host or maintain build threads for all projects I'm now working on, (plus I can't bill for it, lol. ) I will still continue to post in an OP's build thread, (or my own) but I felt this would be an easier way to put out what I turn out. Thanks for watching!

Many photos to come.

The new brain center... crazy... from no computer, to two and a cnc center for the 4x4 premier plasma table. Quickly trying to basically give myself an education in 2D and 3D cad, and cnc; via YouTube ...and interwebs...

Mrs Wingnut has requested cup holders to go with her dead pedal/ footrest on the #wingnutbuggy.



Much cardboard-aided-design must go down before the real CAD takes place...

why don't you fiberglass some sections... like in those last few pics.. just lay your fiberglassing material, right over the top?

however I REALLY LIKE your welding.. it looks better than mine..

ShmUDE 03-01-2019 10:37 PM

what welding positioner is that? I like the sawhorse as well, slick.

waterhorse 03-01-2019 10:42 PM

Seems like everyone has a magnetic brake but me. (drooling)

Saying your workmanship is simply awesome, is an understatement. I really enjoy seeing what can be done with metal.


What material are you using for your templates in the last few pics? It looks thickish and I assume it can't just be paper.

CDA 455 03-01-2019 11:52 PM

Awesome welds indeed! :smokin:

I've never done glass before. But I don't think I would want it on the floor.

Bought the tools to do solid riveting... so there may be some of that in this floor's future.

Certiflat, weldtables.com

It's pretty neat, about $300, purchased the 3 and 4 jaw chucks from grizzly tools.

Just got it last Friday, second hand, lightly used.

Chatted with @adeuling about them. I was holding out for a hydraulic press brake, but I feel this ove will be valuable as well. Press brake soon though.

I buy it at arts and crafts stores, (hobby lobby, Michaels), about 3 bucks a sheet. It's back in the picture framing department with the matte paper. It's about the same thickness as 063 alum. And drill carefully, the clecos will hold it repeatedly.
