  • Finished My Chassis Stand.

    The video doesn't really contain much in regards to the machining, but I designed and made this and it took a lot of machining, so maybe some of you will appreciate it.

    I really can appreciate it. I have worked on similar chassis and it is no fun to turn them upside down or sideways to reach this and that.

    I love it when we can combine two different hobbies or fields of work.

    And it looks nice too.

    You will find that it has discrete steps.

      Thanks Paul. Machining for me has always been a crossover from other hobbies. I started in the early 90's with my Smithy 3-in-1 learning to make parts for telescopes. Now, machining is mostly for telescope and electronics.

        I really like the way you addressed the knurled knob turning with the part that actually holds the set. Slick.

          The stand is beautiful. And the video is very well done - just the right amount of up-front explanation, no unneeded machining details, and the in-use examples show how well thought-out the design is.

          I can see why there is a lot of interest in buying one. Since you're not interested in making them, you could probably sell the design to someone who is.

              Very nice build. I enjoyed the video, even after I realized it wasn't going to show me how to build a chassis rotisserie for my antique MGB.

                Thanks Bob. I appreciate your feedback, and everyone else's. I am definitively not a video person so it's nice to hear that the video was good.

                  Beautiful work. Functional and elegant at the same time, sort of old school craftsmanship meets high tech design. On a side note, and not to derail, you mentioned that you build telescopes. Could you suggest a book that I could find to show me how to build an old style tube type, fixed power riflescope? Malcolm style, what would have been used back in the 1800's on Sharps or the early single shots. Thanks, Jim

                    Very elegant. I don't do enough of that stuff now to take the trouble to build one of them, but there was a time when it would have been very handy..

                          Nice job!

                          Doing all the finishing and anodising I do, I can appreciate your finishing skills. The surface finish looks great with that satin bead blasted look.

                            I actually thought the anodizer was going to do final surface prep, having no idea other than what I found online. Turns out, after I arrived there, they don't do any bead blasting or tumbling. I previously sanded with 320 grit to get out tooling marks and did not pay any particular attention to the sanding marks. The anodizer said he would hold them in the etch bath a little extra longer to clean up the sanding marks a bit. You can still see them, but they are not too bad.

                              Ah I see. Etching is ok if there are not tolerances to be held but if I want a matte finish I'd rather bead or soda blast.
