    OK, that's annoying... Now I have to make one as it would make so much of the kind of stuff I do so much faster and easier.

    Need to find a laser first so it looks like bangood will be getting even more of my money...........

        • I bought a Surface Grinder a while back. I cobbled a holder and order some diamond dressing nubs. The problem was I was having is I had to run the head all the way back down to dress the wheel. Then back up. At first I thought a motor, a pulley to speed this up but... hahaha

          So, I started off with the smartest people I know in machining world. It call crowd sourcing in those big books I have at work. My normal job is in an office and suits are the norm.

          Credit goes to Mcgyver for what I thought was the best design. Post
          Thank You

          This is made out of hot rolled and pins are 401. Cost about 10 dollars and my time.

            Um, yeah...

            Very interesting guy. Amazing. Fascinating. Great videos, and incredible guy. This workshop is in his house, btw. Google him.

            • While we're talking wheel dressers, here's a sine dresser I made. The slide is a dovetail, with an adjustable gib. The sine rolls are on 3" centers. The end plate is exactly 90 degrees so you can stand the dresser on end to dress vertical angles. There's a plastic shim on top to keep the grit out of the slide. The gauge blocks are standards I made for all of the standard angles, from 1 degree to 45. The dresser itself is offset .200" so you don't need super-thin gauge blocks for small angles. I made a .200" spacer to use with the standards I made. Note- You can't stack two standards together to make another angle. For example, if you take the 20 degree standard and the 3 degree standard, it DOESN'T add up to the right size for 23 degrees. Do the math. We had a big argument one place I worked, until people did the trig.

              • Very nice tool there. The plastic cover is also a very thoughtful touch.

                The question on additive angles sounds a little like the question from a (dumb) kid in the design department. "If I'm making the drawing at a 2:1 scale, do I double the angles too?"

                • Made an ER32 collet rack and little open drawer to hold it on my tooling cabinet.

                  • Very nice mattthegamer463 I forget I have a ER32 set because they are stuffed away in drawer and out of site, I'll have to do something like you did. Thanks for posting

                    • Matt,

                      Looks neat! It gave me the inspiration to create a new holder for my transfer punch set. The old holder got knocked off the workbench and hit the floor just right so that all 3 layers twisted and bent so I have a devil of a time putting the punches back in. I have plenty of acrylic and standoffs on hand. I also like the drawer slides idea. Thanks for sharing.

                      PS: Your "Stub Drills" box looks exactly like my A - Z drill set.

                      • Mechanical Demagnetising Tool

                        I seem to have a problem with small tools becoming magnetised, even those that are just sitting around in racks undisturbed. A few days ago I went to use a hex wrench or allen key and found that the end was all furred up with swarf and it had to be cleaned before I could get it into the socket head screw. Years ago I bought one of those cheap magnetising/demagnetising tools that allow you to pass a screwdriver end through a hole in the plastic body. I found that it was good at magnetising a part but not so good at getting rid of the magnetic field. It had another inherent problem in that it could not be used on something that was bigger than the hole in the body. My digital calipers were particularly annoying when they started picking up swarf!
                        I think I read on this very forum that you could use a rotating, alternating magnetic field to demagnetise tools and since I had a supply of small neodymium magnets I made a tool which used four magnets on the end of a spindle with a plastic cap to stop swarf from sticking to the magnets. The plastic could just be wiped off. It works a treat and it's safe because there is no electricity involved. I can use it in my lathe or drilling machine and you can handle large tools or bulky tools easily. I made a video on it's use. So just to make it clear, it's not my idea, I just wanted other people to know about it.
                        Regards,

                          That collet rack looks great Matt, good job!

                          Hoo-ahh ya'll; would ya' just look at at all that purty new tooling all labeled up & organized. Matt had some cash and time on his hands lately.

                          **Edited out my silly comments about extra collet sizes due to my failure to notice 'til today that Matt's set is the larger one in 32nds.**

                          (The good ol' Maritool 7/8" size is correct though.)

                            Very nice, I like that and will have to make one as well.

                            • Great Idea, I have a problem with my tools getting Magnetized all the time. I have blamed it on my Magnetic Personality, I don't want to mess with my personality, but I will make one of these tools to treat my tools

                              • Never happened before but recently it seems like my whole shop is being magnetized...

                                I wonder how I can degauss the whole shop...

                                Nice tool!!!
