In a first for us we manage to get an episode recorded, edited, and posted in about 2 weeks! Don’t worry we didn’t skimp on the quantity of the recording – this episode is a long as the rest of them (note nothing was said about quality!). In this episode we talk about work holding and tool holding in general. Apologies for our voices – we both were recovering from colds. Highlights include:
- Max gets his turret finished just in time for Emma’s tool making competition: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xe3ACUzET7Y Check out the pile of chips on the watchmaker’s lathe:
- Justin is inching (what is the metric equivalent?) towards getting the Schaublin 102 up and running.
- Someone opens a beverage. Identify the time and send Justin an email: email@example.com to claim your prize!
- Justin is recording in the middle of a terrible thunderstorm.
- 2 Jaw independent chuck? We talk about one:
- Justin and Max are big fans of ER collets. Maritool is a great source for production quality stuff at reasonable prices.
- Stefan Gotteswinter gets his mention.
- Use your 3D printer, or a 3D printing service to make soft jaws for your vise! Or a fixture setup for your face plate.
- Clamping nuts – we don’t know what they are called but Max made up a set of them. Identify them, send Justin and email firstname.lastname@example.org and claim your prize!
- Max thinks Justin should build some die holders with driving squares in them like these ones:
All that and much much more.
