Re: Fishy Electronics - DisinfectANT , Cilit BANG

Time for some build log image spam. :D Bought a broken lathe for cheap. Sherline 4000, which is nice for small work. 1987 edition though and getting rusty, motor and electronics are shot. Here after some cleanup https://i.ibb.co/XpRdVMM/IMG-20190104-152410.jpg Cleaned the motor, fixed brushes, reass...

Re: AWS rule polls 2019

Personally, I agree with everything you have added or changed :) For the pit thing, perhaps adding, If there is a discrepancy around a pit-elimination. Final say will be given to the judge / ev...

Re: Fishy Electronics - DisinfectANT , Cilit BANG

That thing just looks SILLY, and in the most beautiful way! I just really, REALLY hope it isn't going to Drizzle itself. I'm also slightly worried that the wobble from the walker mechanism (if there is any) combined with the gyro effect of a bar - especially one that high off the ground - is gonna ...

Re: Fishy Electronics - DisinfectANT , Cilit BANG

https://i.ibb.co/tBNVpxB/WIP2.jpg Cilit BANG 90% there with design, just some more work on the chassis to hold all the components (with room for [most] wires this time!) Offset composite weapon bar looks very unbalanced, but it will be fiiiine :P Had to reduce to 4 legs to save weight and space... ...

Looks awesome! A+ Dad-ing!

Some grey paint and a couple of stencils or yellow/black hazard tape would decorate that arena up nicely :)
Good luck in your battles!

Re: Cleaning gear motors

Im using an ultrasonic cleaner to remove grease dust and .. shavings of brass, where i shaved the motor down, from the gears :P You can pick a small low power one for £30, good for jewelry, watches or DLP 3D prints :D https://www.ebay.co.uk/p/1-3l-Ultrasonic-Cleaner-Timer-Tank-Heated-Bath-Jewellery-...
