  • We don't need no stinkin' badges!"

    Evidently, they don't need no stinkin OSHA either!

    I love the "Can do!", "I have a limited budget.", "I can fabricate that!", attitude though. Check out the shop made independent jaw chuck.

    The long sleeves are a nice touch!

    Nice FLOPPY, LOOSE sleeves. No safety committee in that shop.

    Too bad the guy didn't see Blackforest's thread about parting off with a sawzall. He could probably cut a half second off his cycle time.

    But seriously now, the video shows that with a little ingenuity, a person can accomplish tasks without a lot of high $$$$ machinery.

      Looks like someone fashioned a wood lathe and duplicator from whatever scraps may have been available that day. Profitable business making chess pieces?

      Bravo and keep up the good work.

        Very cool, wonder what he's making?

          I thought the duplicator was clever. Note the hose clamp stop to prevent him from moving the cutter into the chuck.

          *thumbsup*

          edit - it looks like he was making some sort of game piece. I think if he were making a Staunton-pattern chess set his pattern would have been more recognizable.

            Very "We can get there from here", I really liked the "Collet?" and his centering technique.
            I cut it twice, and it's still too short!

              I bet it's harder than he made it look.

                Yeah, and it also demonstrates how a machine dedicated to do one task (even a junk bin concoction) can do it so much more efficiently.

                  Airsmith Espanol?


                  Can't fault him,he's doing what it takes to make a living in an honest trade.

                  I give him definite points for the duplicator,pretty ingenious.
                  I just need one more tool,just one!

                    Agree with the "making a living" posts...question, from a safety standpoint, is it not better to have the duplicator in front?

                    Going from my noob experiences, so far, does not one tend to follow what the action of the duplicator is (i.e. your eyes follow, "search" to track, the contact on the sample piece) and so if the sample has the lathe axis/chuck between you and the sample, and you look more closely/lean in...more dangerous? In front you could look and still be away from the spinning stuff.

                      Yes, he's making money while others are thinking about it. It takes a creative mind to do things like that. Some day he will wear shorter sleeves if he survives after the accident. Been there and survived and no loose sleeves for me.

                        We all know the long sleeves are a no no, but he probably has to use the motor for the lathe as a hand warmer in the winter.

                          This is funny!

                            Agree on both accounts, but I winced when he kept reaching over the spinning junkyard 4-jaw chuck, with long sleeves, no less.

                              They are now.

                              Lab coats and ties where the norm years ago but things have changed in some parts of the world not so much in others. I bet there isn't an OSHA man telling him that he can't use a paper slip to pick up an edge because his fingers get to close to the rotating cutter.
                              The shortest distance between two points is a circle of infinite diameter.
