Title: What did you build this week?
Post by: SONIC. on Feb 05, 2014, 16:56:33
I know this is a motorcycle forum, but it's also a builders forum.
I build all kinds of things, (furniture for a living) from tools to jigs to anything I need but don't want to buy.

Basically I just want to see what everyone is building other than bikes  8)

This is my latest furniture piece

Hey sonic, is that bike table made from a conveyor bed?  I used to design those at a former company.  That blue looks like the color we used for the fedex beds.

I dig the single piece table top.  I feel like most people would have left the lie edge, but it looks really good squared up.  Nice job man.

I've got a maple burl I'm working on currently, I'll be sure to post up when I finish it.

Edit:  looking at it again, is that actually three pieces?

It is in fact 3 pieces, just very carefully glued  ;D
I left just a little bit of the live edge on one corner, the rest is squared.

Made this island top when I remodeled our kitchen. It's made of 2" reclaimed Douglas Fir flooring, pulled out of a house down the street from mine.

This week I helped weld up a fairly rare 1932 Chrysler grille shell.  It was pretty badly damaged and not a good candidate for a restoration, so my buddy Nick is using it on his 1932 Ford pickup.  We shortened it by about 4 inches (took out the crank hole in the center bar) and made new grille bars.  We welded them in, and then he painted the surround.  The bars are bare steel and will be allowed to rust to match the patina of the car.

It was a bit of a shock to find out that the grille, even in the condition it was in, was worth way more than my motorcycle.

I used Emmet's Good Stuff Wood Finish on the island top and the oak butcher block counter tops. I highly reccomend it, very easy to use, doesn't smell too bad or strong, can put on three coats in an hour.

And cold proofing my shop. I went through 500 bucks in propane in the last 13 days. Emptied my tank. Fuck this weather. So we have been redoing insulation where its worn, filling door gap, made a big swinging door to cover the exhaust fan when its not in use etc.

Wood heat man - get a big woodstove in there, or a pellet stove if you want a self-feeding unit.  Nothing like wood heat.

Post by: SONIC. on Feb 08, 2014, 13:25:45
Agreed Tim.
After seeing the propane prices for next year (I'm locked in this year) wood stove is absolutely in my future. The problem is my shop is huge and wide open so it will take hours to get warm with a wood heater. I think the plan is to keep the propane for the initial heat up and then use the wood to keep it warm
Title: Re: What did you build this week?
Post by: Tim on Feb 08, 2014, 13:29:02
Totally different scale, but when we were looking at heating options for the cottage in the fall, we considered a wall mounted propane furnace.  Just a small 35,000 BTU unit or the like.  What we found is in fact propane is very slow compared to wood, and it's also a 'damp' heat.

You build a roaring fire in a large woodstove and you're looking at massive BTU.  Get a fan in there or a stove with a blower and you're golden.  An actual wood-fired central air furnace might be the best option, if it's a large shop.  My inlaws had a wood-fired furnace in their home.  Forced air heat, but with wood as the fuel.
Title: Re: What did you build this week?
Post by: Maritime on Feb 08, 2014, 15:22:57
+1 on that.  Wood heat is fast, cheap and with either a fan or funance ducts it is easy to heat large areas.  Only thing is you have to be there to add fuel, unless it is pellets.  And a regular stove has no thermostat.  It just gets hotter and hotter. But from the sounds of it your space can handle it.

Yeah the wood shop is 75x50 with 20 ft ceilings so its a bitch to heat. Poorly insulated.

I'm going to build a double barrel stove next week and see how that does since its cheap and I have the barrels. If it works well I may upgrade to a nicer pre made furnace

Propane creates humidity because of the hydrogen, but that can be counteracted with ventilation and draft.  Propane actually has the highest BTU output compared to natural gas, but the per dollar comparison makes natural gas cheaper.  Depending on how much you pay for a cord of wood, if anything at all, wood can actually be the cheapest of all heating methods.  The caveat is it has to be dry. Green wood produces 3/4 to 1/2 the BTU's of dry wood.  It all depends on the wood though.  Outside of Pinon Pine or Osage, which you have to live in the southwest for, Hickory, Dogwood, Hornbeam, Apple, White Oak, Ash, Douglas Fir and Locust are best.  When we fire wood kilns, we start with pine, black walnut, birch, or even hemlock to get a slow start then add hardwoods when temps get above 1100 degrees.  It's nothing to get a wood kiln above 2400 degrees, where most gas or propane slows down significantly as it approaches 2300.

It can be worth money.  There's a big market for vintage audio, particularly  certain tube amps, speakers and brands/models of turntables. 60's era Fischer tube amps can go for more than $1000.  I have a set of Allison bookshelf speakers that sound amazing and go for $150 each.    Not bad for speakers that were made in 1980.

Finished up an install for Vice Magazine's head office. Built all their furniture.

I need a career change, badly. In the meantime, I made this fork bag for a friends custom XS500.

didn't exactly build these, but more or less rebuilt them, the Philips sign isn't actually that bright, it only has a 25w bulb but the crappy phone pic made appear brighter, it just sat around for 3-4 years in my storage I restored and rewired it and finally got to mount it since we bought our house about 2 months ago. and the impala my friend and I pulled out of a field 4 years ago and just finished up(for now, they are never done) for Vintage Torquefest a couple weeks ago. it has Air ride, drop spindles, disc conversion, 85 z28 tuned port engine and th350 trans, mechanical air pump, and the list goes on. made a 1000 mile road trip last week with 0 problems

btw the craftsmanship you guys have in this thread is amazing, very nice work.

Built a shop cart.  Laser cut the top with holes that match the die springs from the honda motor start stand. 
That way I can get it up off the floor to work on it.  You can see that project here: http://www.dotheton.com/forum/index.php?topic=55440.msg713805#msg713805

And see it finished and running here:

http://youtu.be/Z_QsGOlVnDE 


Also put a piece of DOM in the middle that matches up with the harley engine stand I built.  Allows me to spin it about the vertical and horizontal axis.  I originally designed the stand to just mount to a bench top (see rendering below), but I liked this idea better.  Tagged on some holsters for the mig gun just in case and a hook for the helmet/shield/whatever.

Ended up mounting a vice to the cart too, which came in handy when I built the exhaust.

Having never done that before, do you just set the shop saw on say 10 degrees and make pie cuts and then tig all the pieces together (like for chambers), or are you cutting pie cuts out of a straight tube, bending it and welding it back up?

i start with straight tube,for a tight bend i cut 5 degrees on one side then flip n cut the other side 5 degrees. For less bend i cut 2.5 degrees. If you know the radius you want you can lay it out n figure what angle will work best. Then they're cleaned n welded together

Basically... Yea :P

When you get this far south, the yard kinda sinks away from the house over time. Every few years you have to "fill"  the yard to keep it up to grade.
It wasn't real bad, but there were several spots where the yard was lower than the sidewalks. It'll take a few weeks, but the grass will grow back up through and cover it all up. In the meantime though, the stray cats in the neighborhood are having a field day ::)

Had a guy ask if I could do some sort of fallen soldier sign to mount on the flag poles that he has attached to his bike for parades.  Spent some time in Adobe Illustrator, AutoCad Inventor and Solidworks, then finally CAMDuct before it hit our laser table... 30" Tall, 14" wide.  One of the guys started hitting it with spray paint before I stopped him, thus the black spot on the helmet.  We're going to make a couple dozen of these and have them powder coated I think

What do you want for one?
My son lost a friend from his unit during their tour in Afghanistan.
I'd like to give it to him to place at Spc. Drakes gravesite.

we're basically selling them for time and materials only.  We're going to do another batch this week and put spikes on some of them for sticking in the ground.  Also will be powdercoated black.  Probably looking about $65 total plus whatever it costs to ship.

Well I figured I would share what I have been working on for the last few weeks on instead of my other project.  1972 Miller AEAD 200LE welder with an Onan twin cylinder engine. I picked it up for a very good price at an estate sale.  It is a 200 amp/%100 duty cycle welder and a 5Kw generator. I put a lot of work into it not knowing how long it has been ran in (at least 10 years, my guess) 
I did the following:
-rebuilt carb and fuel pump (all new rebuild parts)
-adjusted valves
-replaced plus and wires
-new points
-degreased engine
-oil change (new oil in air filter too)
-new spun aluminum fuel tank and lines
-cleaned slip rings and brushes on generator
-adjusted RPMs
-replaced the plugs on the 50 foot leads
-new ground clamp
-new battery (my old, but still good, subaru battery fit perfect!!)
-new battery ground cable and terminal on the positive
I also wanted to put this on a trailer so it would be portable to wherever I needed it; so I built up this harbor freight trailer. It has a 1000 pound capacity and I also put a jack on the front.  It tows great and the welder runs and welds like a top!  Maybe next year I will tear it all down and repaint it to get it nice and shiny

I'm going to start doing some fiberglass work on my bike project but I have zero experience with any of it. I wanted to do a simple project that would get me a little comfortable with the whole process, using a form, making and using resin, cutting and laying the actual glass etc, etc..so I came up with this, a Captain American shield for my 7 year old.

Started with making a rough circle form out of some foam insulation and covered it with tape.

(http://i940.photobucket.com/albums/ad248/pwizl/xs/shield1_zps5d59e97c.jpg)

I didn't have any carnuba wax, so I used a trick I use when bedding rifle stocks, neutral shoe polish

(http://i940.photobucket.com/albums/ad248/pwizl/xs/shield2_zps84f80747.jpg)

Put a couple coats on, cut 4 pieces of cloth, mixed up the resin and laid them on the form

(http://i940.photobucket.com/albums/ad248/pwizl/xs/shield3_zps113f8fbc.jpg)

Let the glass cure, popped it off the form with no problem. Cut the final shape with a jig saw, put a layer of bondo on, sanded and primed it then laid on a couple layers of silver base. I made up a scribe stick out of a paint stirrer, scribed and masked off the stripes

(http://i940.photobucket.com/albums/ad248/pwizl/xs/shield4_zps059814d2.jpg)

(http://i940.photobucket.com/albums/ad248/pwizl/xs/shield6_zpsc1818b45.jpg)

Then sprayed on some Dupli Color Metalcast red

(http://i940.photobucket.com/albums/ad248/pwizl/xs/shield_zps9534afa7.jpg)

Masked off everything but the center and sprayed the Metalcast blue

(http://i940.photobucket.com/albums/ad248/pwizl/xs/shield2_zpsd9020a45.jpg)

(http://i940.photobucket.com/albums/ad248/pwizl/xs/shield3_zpsa34ecc1b.jpg)

Masked off the star..

(http://i940.photobucket.com/albums/ad248/pwizl/xs/shield4_zps3efe366f.jpg)

Can't recall if I posted this or not... drew these up a few weeks ago and cut a couple on the CNC laser.  didn't do much beyond that except hang one on the wall.

The other day I cut a full sheet.  Got 12 of them.  30" tall, 12" wide, .113 thick.  Weigh about 4lbs a piece.  Threw some on Facebook and sold all but 4 the first day.  Thinking about doing another sheet and having them powder coated.

After a month and a half of waiting, I finally got my fat bike frame I ordered so I was able to build it up!  The wheels/hub are too large for any commercial or shop grade truing stand, so I also decided to make a truing stand for it out of some extruded aluminum and some other little pieces of aluminum that I turned down and milled.  It should also work with motorcycle wheels  :D

Got the front end back on my Roadrunner.  The PO ran it between two trees and put some nasty creases in the front end and gave her a bit of a twist.  Got it all squared up, with the need for just the slightest tweak to the hood and the grill surround on the passenger side.  I also had to straighten the front bumper.  Now, I'm trying to decide if I want to rechrome the bumpers or go with the body paint color match.

Before, when I picked it up from the folks house:

It is nice to keep up with weeds and squirrels, we scrounged most of the materials, had to buy the door and some of the skirt boards, the stain is leftover from fence we built and the mesh I got for $12 at a bargain store but need more to finish up so all in were going to be at just shy of $300... that's a lota store bought produce, but should last a long time

Just finished a project over the weekend that I built with my grandfather. Its a media center for my house, since I couldn't find one I liked anywhere that was affordable. The top, drawers and shelves are rustic cherry.

Thanks all, it was a fun project and I am quite happy that it turned out the way it did. JP I wire wheeled the whole thing and then put 3 coats of clear on it. I wanted to keep the raw steel look on it, even though everyone who saw it kept telling me to paint it.

Well you did the right thing!  The "bare" steel looks great - perfectly compliments the rustic look of the Cherry.  Doesn't look clear coated in the pics which is good - not overly glossy which is why I had to ask.  Looks like it weighs a fair bit!

You can make some money doing that kind of work.  A side biz of mine is doing fine art crating. I got $600 over cost on a crate like this:

(https://scontent-dfw1-1.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-xpf1/v/t1.0-9/16387_10204785464985761_753658177759473625_n.jpg?oh=62cfbccfe7a1680a00c6143025e3938d&oe=5655FE1E)

Final cost to the customer ends up being just short of $850.  $90K worth of paintings off to a sale, they will pay.  Plus, they have to satisfy the underwriters.

I know this is a motorcycle forum, but it's also a builders forum.
I build all kinds of things, (furniture for a living) from tools to jigs to anything I need but don't want to buy.

Basically I just want to see what everyone is building other than bikes  8)

This is my latest furniture piece

Etc.

Lets see it

    Sonic, 
        What is that shop wood stove made of? Looks like 50gal. drums... way cool man.. do you have any other photos of how you made it? Wanted to do something similar in my shop. Thanks

After spending several weekends working on problems with four of the cages, I was happy to work on a project that didn't put grease under my fingernails :P

Last season my younger Godchild killed her first deer...
(http://i291.photobucket.com/albums/ll297/vialfmly/Mobile%20Uploads/IMG_2489_zpsgiooasd8.jpg)
She had the skull cleaned and kept it as a trophy. We got to talking one day about putting lights in the eyes to scare people and she loved the idea.
Sunday morning I got it wired up for her.
The microswitch/battery pack:

I also finally got around to mounting up my bottle opener.
(http://i291.photobucket.com/albums/ll297/vialfmly/Mobile%20Uploads/IMG_7496_zps12kdduuf.jpg)
And added a magnet to catch the caps.

Made a neat little fire pit out of part of an old compressor tank.  I saved the rest of the tank to build a small forge later.

Just finished building in the front of the car port with leftover hardwood from my old mans place.

Now the workshop doors can be open and nobody from the street can see in.

Still have to stain it and paint the roller door.

Doing a lot of remodel at 4g Steel in Lincoln. So far I've installed and trimmed 4 solid core doors and one steel six foot double door, built and rocked 6 walls, put 2 Windows in and enlarged an entryway. There was no room for the proper sized header in the new opening so Charlie at 4g had em make me a steel plate to sandwich and bolt between a couple 2x8's. it is heavy.

Not sure what pics I have in my phone, let's see here. I think there's some gratuitous pics of the shop area and their awesome machines.

Phone keeps kicking me out of gallery, it'll take a couple posts to get ya caught up.

Last 2 pics above are of the ladder I climb to the loft where I dig through 30 year old 2x4's to get what I need for the project. The windows in the loft wall were installed by myself as well. Blew their mind when I installed headers without taking the whole wall section and drywall out. Tricks of the trade.

Here's some more. I'll take more pics today.

Thanks mate. It is not symmetrical as the motor for the door is on the left and there is limited room between the carport and fence on the left.

As for the stain. It will be a light oiling to keep the wood protected. Next project is to build a medieval style gate on the right to replace the temporary fence next to the carport.

Now the motorcycle table has many more options for anchor points.

Fabbed up an angle iron base so I can put two wheel chocks I'm the back of the s10 and move them wherever I want. Plus tie down anchors in the center

With warm temps coming boilers that have started failing in older buildings can be shut down and replaced...this is one that me and another guy replaced last year. Building is from around 1920 and was a movie theater but now is a church and also has 11 small apartments. Boiler room is down in the basement. There was a makeshift floor covering the old coal bin that fed a boiler back in the day. Space was 7ft x 7ft x 20in deep...gut, fill, new slab with sump pit.

(http://i1269.photobucket.com/albums/jj592/smfpics1/IMG_20150423_125059867_zpsphep0d2s.jpg)

Old boiler weighed about 1500 pounds but you can break it down into 6 sections. 4in cast iron piping on much of it...24in and 36in monkey wrenches to spin pipe, sawzaw if shit didn't spin.

Still quite a bit of piping added after that last pic and is not my area of expertise. We had to have it inspected by the state and then by Denver, but if the state signs off Denver is pretty much automatic.

Tore down an old fleetwood popup trailer where the interior was junk from sitting open in the rain for a few years. Stripped down to frame, welded in uprights for sides. Just finished building the gate today. Gonna be chock full of motorcycles, bikes and tools for the move at the end of the month. Should be about a $350 project all said and done.

Fenders cut out and bent in the brake. Got a weak little brake so I had to score the underside to get em to bend. Guy at the steel company gave me a 2x4' sheet of 14ga for nothing since he couldn't find it in the system. Lucky enough to get 2 fenders out of it

Wanted a place to hang out with my buddies when they come over, away from the drama of the women folk so I built a "man" deck

Nothing huge, 12x10, just a chill place with some cool features

(http://i940.photobucket.com/albums/ad248/pwizl/xs/deck1_zpsvrxtu9ve.png) (http://s940.photobucket.com/user/pwizl/media/xs/deck1_zpsvrxtu9ve.png.html)

I wanted to have a cooler available but I didn't want it just sitting on the deck so I came up with this

(http://i940.photobucket.com/albums/ad248/pwizl/xs/deck2_zpss8xzknzi.png) (http://s940.photobucket.com/user/pwizl/media/xs/deck2_zpss8xzknzi.png.html)

Put up a shade sail, one more still to put up, and started digging for a small retaining wall

(http://i940.photobucket.com/albums/ad248/pwizl/xs/deck4_zps0mm1tpz6.png) (http://s940.photobucket.com/user/pwizl/media/xs/deck4_zps0mm1tpz6.png.html)

Finished the wall up today, well almost, 4 blocks short

(http://i940.photobucket.com/albums/ad248/pwizl/xs/deck5_zpsxtntwst7.png) (http://s940.photobucket.com/user/pwizl/media/xs/deck5_zpsxtntwst7.png.html)

Still to do, backfill the wall with gravel and fab up a fire pit

Wanted a whiskey fountain for the deck, but I couldn't quite make that happen. Came up with this instead...

Screwed 2 pieces of teak together and drilled a hole down the middle, coated the inside with some epoxy so it would be water tight

(http://i940.photobucket.com/albums/ad248/pwizl/xs/whiskey1_zpsujricb9e.png) (http://s940.photobucket.com/user/pwizl/media/xs/whiskey1_zpsujricb9e.png.html)

Drilled a hole in the front half for the spigot, installed the spigot, epoxied and screwed the halves back together. Was in the zone so I didn't get any pics of all that stuff. Had to come up with a way to seal the bottom back up since I drilled all the way through, so I taped up over the bottom and poured some epoxy down into the hole

(http://i940.photobucket.com/albums/ad248/pwizl/xs/whiskey2_zpsncrgx3in.png) (http://s940.photobucket.com/user/pwizl/media/xs/whiskey2_zpsncrgx3in.png.html)

Filled it with water overnight to check for leaks, not a drop.
This is the finished product, just need to work on a mount that will enable it to be portable so I can take it from the man deck to wherever bourbon is needed

Not exactly this week...but heres a floating shelf I built out of Spanish Cedar and copper pipe. Joins are 45* miters with inset biscuits. Hangs on routed keyholes about 3/16" deep.

Just noticed this thread. Wow, there is some talent here for sure.

My first non-moto related welding project. Weathervane I made my wife for Mother's Day. She has a weird obsession with bats and goth shit...

Couldn't fine a vane with a hanging bat, so I made one. Spins with the gentlest of breezes.

Refinished this old chair for my wife's office

Found this what looked to be dining chair for $20. Chrome was flaking, frame was a bit rusty, padding needed help and the vinyl was brittle.

I won't give you a hard time about it.  (My other degree is in Southern History  ;) ) But Tennessee is considered Upper South.  That's interesting that you're hearing people call it Deep South.  Deep South refers to the cotton states and only the states that seceded before the attack on Fort Sumter.  Tennessee, Virginia, and Arkansas are considered Upper South.  They preferred to wait-and-see when it came to secession.  Slave holding was significantly less prominent in Tennessee and they had much larger ties to the Union.  Culturally, there is significant differences between Upper South and Deep South. Traditional architecture differs as well.  Add in that 1/3 of Tennessee, on the Knoxville side, is actually culturally Upland South which has deep Scottish Highland roots as well as settlements from Germans and other Europeans that migrated through the Shenandoah Valley south.  Much of the accent we hear in the South, particularly in the mountains, is a derivative of Scottish.

When did you find time to go to college, I worked 50 hours + and was dead at the end of the day, but I was working for myself by the time I was 20 and only worked a few years for anyone else other than taking welding jobs to subsidize winter lows. No PC's  or internet school then man.

I grew up poor and with a single mother.  I had no choice. Worked on a soybean farm until I could get job on the books at 15.  Worked 55 hours a week through high school, then cooked in a kitchen and worked part-time for an electrical wholesaler in college.  I got my associates in machine tool tech before I went to the U of South Carolina and machined pistons for Homelite to save up some money for down payments and whatnot.  I worked at Michelin while getting the MTT degree.  They paid for it.  No internet school for me either.  I just didn't sleep much.  And you had to go to the library or a computer lab to use a computer.  Internet started when I was in undergrad and it cost per minute.  So none of that either.

Hmmm I owned a farm and had beans and corn in rotation to prevent soil depletion and because the government tells you what and where to plant or no subsidy lol, but it was rented ground so I cared less... same same, we had shit for nothing 4 pork chops and five kids at dinner bla bla bla, I realized very young (youngest of five) that if I wanted something i was going to have to get it on my own. school seemed a waste of time until I needed to understand contract law.

Yes, its about 6-8 to the valve and the extension id a handle to hold while turning it, it works very well and 3 gallons is enough to be a shower but 5 is like home almost just less pressure

This is a better perspective of height

Old PC took a dump after 5+ years on the mobo. I had recently upgraded the video card (GeForce 960) and have 2 nice SSDs and a mechanical drive that are only about a year old, so I kept those for the new machine.

Intel i5-6600k
Asus H170 mobo
16gb RAM
650watt power supply
NZXT case and Kraken cooler

With the glory that is Amazon prime I managed to get everything reasonably close to the cheapest possible with 2 day free shipping (and Sunday deliver to boot). Took about 2 hours to dissect the old machine and get the new one together. These new cases are pretty sweet for cable-management and cooling, although this one sacrifices a bit of HDD space for it (and no optical drive).

Thanks Kamn. We were supposed to do this job earlier in the summer but red tape got in the way and are now pressed for time so a crew was brought in to remove the old one...took four guys a half a day. We had all pipes and wiring DQ'd.

Me and the brains behind these swaps wrestled the new sections down into the dungeon though, each section is about 450 pounds. I have a manual lift to raise them up to the top of the base.

Took a couple weeks but I built a Biesemeyer style fence system for the vintage tablesaw I bought a couple months ago. Cost me about $50 worth of drops at the steel supplier. 3D printed some slider pads. It has set screws to square to the deck.

Did some work on the trailer this week. It started as a 50s camper base with a torsion axle and an odd 4 x 5 bolt pattern. Took some machine work to adapt for a VW bolt pattern.  The toolbox was built by my grandfather in the 60s for his Chevy truck...

I had a set of Pioneer tower speakers that didn't make the trip when I moved down south last year. So I tore them down, took out the components and put them in a checked bag on my last flight back.

I built some 3/4" MDF cabinets using all the same dimensions as the old ones. They sound MUCH better than the 1/2" particleboard of the original cabinets.

Pieces cut out.

Thanks! I didn't do any upgrades to the hardware but I plan on it in the future.

I had quite a few mishaps with the paint. I started out by sealing the edges with joint compound, super important because the edges of the MDF will just keep absorbing paint. I ended up using a roll on latex primer and Rustoleum gloss black oil with a roller after having a few fails with rattle cans. I did a few rounds of wetsanding with #400 in between. There is quite a bit of orange peel and they look better in the pics than up close in person, but I'm pretty happy with the finish.

They are great for joinery. Super quick, you barely even have to make accurate registration marks. I was able to get a biscuit cutter for about $60 at Harbor Freight, and it works really well. I use them any time I have to make 90 degree joints.

I have one but I have not used it on MDF, just edge to edge hardwood.  I have used MDF building speakers but next time I think I will try Baltic Birch, which is not quite as good as MDF but the sawdust is not as much of a problem.  This plywood has no voids, like most North American plywood and comes in 5 x 5 sheets.

Tune that's pretty damn cool.

ADV those speakers look great!
For MDF try Bondo, I've had really good luck with it.
You can put an ultra thin layer over the outsides too and sand it back to flush to get a paint ready surface.


I bought a pair of rectilinear highboys a few months ago (fuckin awesome speaker).  They sounded completely different than my center channel though so it made movies with surround odd to watch. So I decided to buld a center to match.

Scored some 1967 Phillips mids from eBay and built an elcosure for them from leftover cabinet ply with a walnut box. Put some Dayton drivers crossed around 400hz for the low end and a Dayton tweet at 3000 for the highs. The thing sounds amazing.

Im still waiting on the speaker fabric to come in to match the rectilinears.

Nice work!  I like that you used a single tweeter (unlike most centre channels) so you will have fewer, if any, combing issues.

Thanks! Yeah my hearing barely extends past 10Khz these days anyway ha!
Multiple tweeters make for some weird sounds in my experience, and I did not feel like spending 2 months modifying crossovers to get it to work perfectly (nor dealing with the angry fiance every time I steal her TV speaker haha), this was more of a simple rough and dirty build. Used driver's I'm familiar with and crossed by experience and it turned out pretty well. Not perfect, but close enough that no one but me will ever know!

I have input through the volume pedal and overdrive then out to the front of the amp. Then there is a send and return to run the modulation pedals through the fx loop and the last is the amp channel and reverb switcheroo. I never really cared for delays on the front of the amp.

Oh yeah, went a little thicker than typical 1911 grips to fill my hands out better and made a thumb groove for easier access to the mag release. The dark stripe was the original finish on the wood, left as much as i could so i could show off the imperfections in it. Several coats of tung oil and they feel just as good as any to me. Woodworking is a hobby of mine and i find repurposing is what i find myself doing most. Here's a dresser i made from that same heirloom, which was an old bed just sitting in my garage.

Nice Tune, I did the same with an old buffet of my Nan's turned it into a vanity with a vessel sink in it. Had to cut it down to fit swap the left and right side panels to make it work but solid wood is worth saving, nothing but mdf and press board out there for most things like that now.

Nice work. I need to make a table like that for welding and fabricating, maybe with a few slots to clamp down workpieces.

Thanks, I intended to add some threaded holes for workholding, but ran out of steam and time to do it. Plus the top was heavy and I didn't wanna fight out clamping it on the mill table.

Eh it's thick enough you can just weld the work to it and then grind it off afterwards

Still have some finishing to do, but I built up a small "machine shop bench". It will hold my lathe, drill press, belt sander and a heavy wilton vice. I wanted it to be heavy duty and rigid, so all the angle is 3/8" and the tubes are 1/4" wall 2x2 square for the legs. Also there are (not pictured) 5/8" carriage bolts for leveling under each leg. I saved a 24" x 84" x 2 3/16" maple butcher block top from the trash too for on top.

Plyi,
Looks like a cool garden project.  What is the small tree in front of the window?  If it's lemon or other citrus it will outgrow that space.  Are those gum trees I see?  I miss the smell, but not the mess of bark and leaves and gum nuts.

C&C thanks and I will try to take better pics we only got the front done as of now the rest is still dirt.

Teazer, thanks as well. The small tree on the left is a like tree we just picked up. It is still in the bucket from the nursery and is placed there more to get it out of the way for the sod then actually planting it there but good to know about the size. I am clueless about how to keep anything but grass alive.

The big trees (which you can't see) in the front are eucalyptus and the little one by the window and really big one the side yard is some sort of Oak I think (not really a ace botanist). They all have a really shallow root base and the soil is pretty sandy so we are hoping the grass with its myriad of roots will keep them from falling over in a storm like a few in our neighborhood have so far.

1.) Wild mushrooms with caramelized onions and goat cheese on a puff pastry tart
2.) Crab bisque with garlic croutons
3.) Dover Sole a la Bordalaise with fresh dill pasta salad (this one doesn't look good, but the flavors were spot on)
4.) Blood Orange sorbet drizzled with Lemoncello
5.) Roast beef tenderloin with Gorgonzola whipped potatoes and Ratatouille
6.) Salade Nicoise

I built a more simple dish for the wife and friends... not for valentines, that's tonight, but last night I made the Rellanos again.

Roast chilies over fire
Sizzle pork in proprietary seasons lol
Add chopped chilies and chicken stock
Serve over rellanos made from cheese stuffed chilies wrapped in egg roll wrapper and deep fried all topped with lettuce and tomatoes garnished with more cheese.

Aperitif was a cocktail from Aperol, gin, lemon juice, and simple syrup.
The mushroom tart was served with a blanc du blanc Champagne.
Soup was paired with a Rhone Valley white
The fish got a rosé from Bordeaux
For the beef, we had a pretty decent Gamay from Washington
The salad went with a Loire Valley white
Hazlenut infused port for dessert

I had planned to do a Calvados and Grand Marnier cocktail for the digestif, but we were all pretty drunk at this point, so we gave it a miss.

Setting up the new shop. First run all will change as soon as all of the household is moved out. Likely get a second lift and move bikes to the back and finally get a car lift also so I can flip some beaters.

Awesome on the length of that shop space.  I wish my garage was longer than it is wide.  My Roadrunner has to be pushed all the way to the back wall in order to be able to walk around it with the door down.  It makes one whole side of the garage hard to get to.

Irk, if you plan to stay in ATL for the duration, maybe look into selling the NJ property and build a building 50X100 with 4 shops 25X50, rent three and keep one. With being a tenant owner you can keep an eye on things and live rent free... maybe even bank a few bucks.

That's my long term plan, just need a lot to get started.

That's good advice.  We're in the process of weighing our options now: look at re-structuring to extend profit or market value for sale.  The wife wants to sell.  I'm still holding out on the potential investment, as it could become a $300k or so at retirement.

Yep! Keep an eye on comps, prices have skyrocketed... I bought the house in Memphis 3 years ago and neted a 125,000 gain at sell, seems we are in a sellers market again, but who knows what's ahead.

Replacing about 100ft of clay sewer pipe that comes from the master bedroom in the back of the house. Fortunately the main line in the house is separate from this one so we still have use of the facilities.

This root probably wedged its way into the joint when it was tiny and grew from there.

I just got the CO2 refill station stand back from Powder coat today. I'll see if I can grab some pictures later. 

It uses a 5 pound CO2 beverage ccylinder to fill the 4 oz bottles for the quick shifter.

Yea, I wasn't the one who disassembled it. Corey was.
That's where I'm stuck. I know where the bulk parts go, but I'm unsure of where washers/clips/bolts/etc are supposed to go. But a bribe of a few beers and a couple of slices of pizza are gonna get Humpty Hump back together again :P

I agree. I don't have any assembly books, but I had the idea of printing microfiche pages from the 'net.
I could also use one of the spare lumps as a guinea pig.
I'm sure I could figure it out, it'll just go a little quicker with someone who's already been inside one.

Actually, the only part that "makes me nervous" is making sure that what's inside the cases is all there and working properly. I've never split the cases before. Everything from there outward is eazy peezy for me :)

Title: Re: What did you build this week?
Post by: teazer on Feb 23, 2017, 16:32:19
A full weekend - not many passes in a weekend, but I like to take 4-6 bottles just to be safe.

Compressed air is fine for shifting.  I didn't want to carry a large air bottle or to modify the swingarm or frame to act as a reservoir.

Air is typically around 120 psi and that's sufficient, but our old bikes have slow heavy shifting and I wanted more oomph.  The CO2 bottle is gassed to over 1,500 and steps down to say 150psi and will still be at that same regulated pressure all day and won't steadily drop with each shift. I also like the small size.  The bottle and regulator combo hides in the seat hump where it is also out of the sun which could raise the pressure too high.

Do you use a paintball gun regulator?
Title: Re: What did you build this week?
Post by: teazer on Feb 24, 2017, 13:23:31
Basically yes. That is the most expensive individual component.  I purchased a complete system the first time around and now I have sourced some/most of the component parts.  Shift cylinders for example come in a huge range of sizes and costs. The drag race suppliers like MRE and Shnitz can supply most of the parts at reasonable prices.

The reason to use one is really about consistent complete shifts.  I used to miss the odd shift when I did it the old fashioned way.  Now I can shift at wide open throttle and not touch the clutch. Yes.  It's faster, but my issue is consistency and this helps.  Arguably practice might have been cheaper and more appropriate solution but I like technology and working out ways to minimize the impact of my lack of skills.

Next I need to learn to shift when the shift light comes on and not whenever I feel like it.  Time for data collection and try different shift points to measure the impact on 330, 1000 and 1320 times and speeds. Never enough runs in a day.
Title: Re: What did you build this week?
Post by: SONIC. on Feb 24, 2017, 15:36:06
Teazer,
I'm curious about shifting at WOT, do you have an actuator hooked to the clutch line as well as the shift linkage sort of like a semi automatic on an atv?
Or do you just rely on the speed of the actuator to slam it into gear?

Title: Re: What did you build this week?
Post by: Sonreir on Feb 24, 2017, 17:04:05
Ignition cut.

Yup. Shift button is also a kill switch. Works on the same principle as shifting without a clutch; output from the engine stops (more or less) and takes stress off of the transmission. With no (or very little) stress on the transmission, the clutch isn't needed.
Title: Re: What did you build this week?
Post by: teazer on Feb 25, 2017, 03:15:16
More or less.  The horn button is wired through a two way switch - one for the horn and the other for the quick shifter.  As I push that button, it actuates a solenoid to allow a shot of air to actuate a ram that slams it into gear.

At the same time, it also activates a kill switch with an adjustable kill time.  Mine I think is 50 -100 milliseconds. So in essence, the ignition dies for a fraction of a second and that unloads the transmission for long enough for the ram to throw it into the next gear before the ignition comes back on line.

You can also get  what's known as an RPM Window switch that will activate a circuit at certain revs.  Modern ignition systems often have an output that would trigger the ignition at certain revs.  Neither of those is allowed in our race class.

Here's the shifter set up. (http://i1106.photobucket.com/albums/h364/tz375/Suzuki%20GT750/DSCN8356sml_zpsb84d347b.jpg)

The top end is a rattling good fit, so the ram can move around (self align) and the lower end has a spherical joint to eliminate the slack and wear in a clevis. I can still shift up or down manually around the pits or on the street but I have to keep my feet out of the way if I shift on the button or else the shifter will hit my foot and fail to engage the next gear.

The clutch is not touched after it is released, until the other end of the run.

Decided to build up a wheel truing stand out of extra material I had laying around. I had to buy a chunk of all thread, but still the cost was less than the harbor freight unit. She is pretty rigid lol.

We had a fridge growing up that was tapped in the side.  During parties, Mom would put pie pans on the floor to catch the drip and unbeknownst to us, our black lab was lapping it up.  During my aunt's graduation party, we figured it out when the lab was walking sideways and the poor girl couldn't go up even a single stair.

Didn't build it, but repaired it...
Picked up an old office safe. Freebie.
(http://i291.photobucket.com/albums/ll297/vialfmly/Mobile%20Uploads/IMG_2978_zpsc95pd3gd.jpg)
The dial was taped up because it got increasingly difficult to hit the combination correctly. So when they "got it right" they taped it in position and just used the key to open the safe. After years of this procedure, the combination was forgotten.
I got it home, lifted the door off, and removed the access panel.
(http://i291.photobucket.com/albums/ll297/vialfmly/Mobile%20Uploads/IMG_2977_zpsyioymyhk.jpg)
From here I was able to determine that two of the four tumbler wheels were kinda sticky (thus causing the hit/miss combination working), and figure out what the combination actually is. Lubed everything up, wiped it all down, buttoned it all up, and now I have a fully functioning double lock safe for my home.

Sweet.
So how do you figure out the combo? turn till you see the tumblers move or as it printed inside somewhere?
Title: Re: What did you build this week?
Post by: Redbird on Aug 01, 2017, 13:23:13
Basically, turn it till you see the tumblers move :P
All of them are notched to allow the boltworks room to slide inward. All I had to do was watch the notches line up and write down the number, the direction turned, and number of turns it took to get there.
It's actually pretty simple, mechanically. The complexity comes in knowing the combination.

only time I've ever been arrested was outside a nightclub sharing a beer with some young ladies, saw a car go past with something on the roof and yelled "TAXI" and imagine my surprise when what I thought was the taxi sign started flashing blue lights.....it didn't help my case (or the other 3 guys I was with) that we were all pissed as crickets, holding beer bottles and I was wearing a bright red suit (no, not a santa suit either, just a normal suit that was bright red)
we all got to spend the night in the lock up enjoying the hospitality of the Carlton police and were most disappointed to not be offered a hearty breakfast the next morning
but considering what we'd been up to earlier in the evening it only seemed fair to end up in the nick

My youngest got arrested for being honest. He was in a club that was notorious for serving underage kids. He was 19 and walked out the door to go home when a police officer asked if he had been drinking. He said yes and spent most of the night in the lock up. They didn't do a breathalyzer or bac and he was apparently sober. I went to the jail with a lawyer buddy and the charges were dropped.

yeah, we didn't deny what we were up to ( at that particular time of the night anyway) as it was a bit obvious we were shitfaced and holding beers, and when we got to the copshop we co-operated as we didn't want to be searched too thoroughly due to certain items hidden about our persons that would have got us in a whole lot more trouble than drunk in a public place charges....as a reward for co-operating we got to sleep in cells with mattresses, blankets and glass in the windows. the less co-operative members of our party got the other cells without any of those amenities
kicking out time was an unpleasant shock, waking up with absolutely no idea where the hell we were and stinking hangovers

Did this a few months ago...
Wife didn't like the ergo's of the mountain bikes we bought a while back. Said she'd prefer the "Beach Cruiser" style better. So I picked up an '81 Schwinn DelMar off CL and cleaned it up. Complete disassemble/regrease, new bar, grips, pedals, chain, lighting, some polishing and some paint (I wanted it to look more '60's and less '80's).

Last weekend, neighbor was tossing out two Cruisers for trash. Both in real good shape, just needing some TLC.
So now I have a Beach Cruiser as well. Just waiting on a few new bits to clean it up nicely.
(http://i291.photobucket.com/albums/ll297/vialfmly/Mobile%20Uploads/IMG_3038_zpsdgttzrbm.jpg)
I'll post that one up when I'm done.

BTW, I have two Mountain Bikes (one male, one female), and a female Beach Cruiser for sale if anyone is interested.
Looking to get rid of them ASAP as the pedal bikes currently outnumber the motorcycles :P

yeah, we didn't deny what we were up to ( at that particular time of the night anyway) as it was a bit obvious we were shitfaced and holding beers, and when we got to the copshop we co-operated as we didn't want to be searched too thoroughly due to certain items hidden about our persons that would have got us in a whole lot more trouble than drunk in a public place charges....as a reward for co-operating we got to sleep in cells with mattresses, blankets and glass in the windows. the less co-operative members of our party got the other cells without any of those amenities
kicking out time was an unpleasant shock, waking up with absolutely no idea where the hell we were and stinking hangovers

Been there.  The worst hangovers are when waking up in the drunk tank.

Thanks mate. Just saving up for all that kit now. Only problem I can see with kegging is taking a few brews with me if I go out.
I just keep some growlers around from local breweries and use them to send with friends or take with me when I go out... I have a double walled insulated stainless growler that will keep beer cold for 8+ hours that I use the most.

And all I did this week was bolt a few new bit on a bicycle *facepalm*

Removed the stupid lookin cup holder and basket. Cleaned up the frame and seat, greased up all the moving parts, did a little polishing on some of the shiney bits, installed the new bar/grips.

Sorry... normally I would, but this is hopefully going to become a product.

I'll steer you in the correct direction though... It's just a simple voltage divider and then I use an analogRead() from the Arduino (along with a bit of math) to work out the input voltage.

I've got a couple things I've been working on over the last two weeks.

First, I blew a KT88 in my Yaqin MC-100B tube amp. It went gassy, and took out a couple resistors and burned through the insulation of some wiring.


So I replaced the resistors, and while I was in there I also replaced the blue LED that had burned out, adding a current limiting resistor and a diode to prevent reverse voltage breakdown (the source is 7v AC). I replaced it with a red LED... but I think I actually like the blue better, so i'll be taking it back apart soon. I also replaced the four input capacitors (the blue boxes) with some better audio grade caps.

Next project, I wanted blue anodized passenger footpegs for my 1992 EX500 project. They're not available. However, EMGO makes a pair for the EX250. I snagged them, and they mounted up in the EX500 brackets, with the spring and collar from the EX250, but without the ball and divot plate from the EX250. This is fine, except the EMGO pegs have a slightly different profile on the clevis, which means they won't rotate up and down in the EX500 bracket. They do in the EX250 bracket, but only just barely.  You can see the extra material on the EMGO footpegs when the EX250 collar is set on it. That material (later marked with a green sharpie) must be removed. I filed it down, and got the pegs to fit in the EX500 brackets, and rotate properly.

Finally, I've been troubleshooting low power and gas mileage issues with my CX650 Street Scrambler. Turns out I had built my custom exhaust using CX500 headers instead of CX650 headers. I bolted on a pair of CX650 headers and immediately got a whole bunch of top end power that was missing previously. So, what's the difference between CX500 headers and CX650 headers? Both headers are dual-walled designs. The 650 headers have a larger ID for the inner pipe, and the weld that connects the inner and outer pipes is ground down on the 650. The 500 weld bead sticks up prominently. This means the ID of the CX500 pipe at the head connection is 1.21", while the 650 headers have an ID of 1.30". That's a 7.2% difference!  I'm not sure what effect that has on CFM, but it made for a significant increase in top end power.


CX500 header ID:


(http://www.dotheton.com/forum/index.php?action=dlattach;topic=57318.0;attach=195169;image)



CX650 header ID:


(http://www.dotheton.com/forum/index.php?action=dlattach;topic=57318.0;attach=195172;image)




What I had done was cut off the original CX500 header flange where it bolts into the engine, and then welded 1/2" exhaust pipe onto that. The inner wall was gone, past the cut, but there was a 1" ring of the inner wall, and the original weld bead in the pipe. I got my trusty air-powered dremel knockoff from Harbor Freight (seriously, get an air one, they last forever and never overheat and burn out), and ground out that weld and removed the ring of the inner pipe. Then I ground everything down even further, so the ID of the flange is now the same ID of the exhaust pipe, and significantly LARGER than the ID of the OEM 650 pipe. The ID is now 1.39"! That's a 5.9% increase over the stock 650 header, and whopping a 13.8% difference over the original 500 headers!

Modified header ID:


(http://www.dotheton.com/forum/index.php?action=dlattach;topic=57318.0;attach=195174;image)




While I was working on them I welded an adapter flange onto the end of the pipes so I don't have to use those shitty adapters to mount 1.75" mufflers (those adapters ALWAYS leak), and I'm waiting for the paint to dry. Then I'm going to re-wrap the pipes and spray them down with silicone sealant, and I should have my maiden test ride with properly-sized custom headers Saturday or Sunday.

Cooked up these spring perches that allow standard 1 7/8” springs to be used on RFY shocks. Pretty happy with them.

New wide bamboo ply fenders for the bamboo bike as it's getting wetter and I've put the winter commute tyres on

Almost done. Negatory on the hammock. Full size mattress, yes. (https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20170930/ef59b7106b83a1ec90a25c718c7b6a5d.jpg)

Built myself a new ride.
Bloody hard to get done one handed but there is stage 1.

Had the stepson help me build his new bike.
After paint he was way to excited to get it together and didn't want to paint the wheels. His bike so I let him go at it.

Thanks mate. I was inspired by Redbird's awesome bike. I still have 1 more to build for the missus, hard to pull a bike apart 1 handed though.

Here is how they started. Mine was originally covered in plastidip and was a pain to remove. Had no seat or bars so I chucked them on there for a before shot.

The stepson's was a mish mash of parts and most of the cables were joined with electrical clamps.

After 12 years in the hobby, I'm un-building the aquarium. Life is just getting too complicated to look after it the way I need to, so it's time to let it go.
(The water is so dirty because I shot it right after evacuating the fish, uprooting the surviving plants and dredging the substrate)

That's a cool horizontal aquarium, I didn't even know that existed. It's odd that the water has an invisible vertical wall, truly messes with the eyes.

They're a lot of fun, but it gets expensive real fast!

All polished now

Mounting it to the wall was the hardest part: 125 gallons weighs a lot!

Not quite done yet, still have a bit of finish welding to do but this is what I built this week:

New table and fixtures for my robotic welding setup in the metal shop. This should increase output considerably as well as expand to a new size product.

3.5" steel plate with 260 3/4" bores and 260 1/2" bores.

Mounting may have been but what about keeping the water?

I had to retire to an area with greater privacy after seeing those tables. Dead sexy!

I made this combination bracket that is also a manifold. Can't really say what it's used for, but for the first prototype I am fairly pleased. We will try this one out in the field and then I'll make adjustments to the drawings as necesary. There are a few things that I already plan on changing, but that's why prototypes happen. On the final runs I'll use new tools that are less warn and run a spring pass to remedy the finish quality.

Looks like some kind of Venturi. Cool.

I made some wooden sinks for a new hotel this week.
White oak.

Then this afternoon I got a wild hair and made a new fire pit from some 3/16 stainless I had sitting around.

I made a hillbilly soda blaster from a beer making kit and a plastic cup, not exactly Macgyver but it seems to work and for £4 and £2 of ‘soda’ it’s worth a go
