Default Tip of the day

Watch new video by Joe Pie... and learned a neat little trick to help with those quick hand drilling jobs, that we tend to think we don’t need to clamp down.

Make a couple “L” shaped parts to clamp into a vice, that will hold the part to be drilled down and to keep it from spinning. I screenshot from the video some pics to get the idea across.

I like this way better. This method offers more flexibility on hole location and shape of the workpiece. There is also no need for anything special made.

A technologically advanced society would teach their children how to start a fire by rubbing two sticks together before teaching them how to use a lighter.

Aren't energy consumption and computers supposed to make life less stressful?

If you are not having fun then you are doing it wrong.

How'd you mount your mill to the ceiling?

Now that's easy clean up, or is that down.

I just don't see the benefit after going through the effort of making the "L" parts. They don't locate the work so they are not good for repetitive holes. One would still have to mark the hole for drilling.

I guess depends on what the part is for. If you have a lot of repetitive parts that the hole is not critical, any you just eye ball it, this can work pretty fast. Or if you have a part that has multiple holes that are premarked anyways.

Just another tool in the ol brain box for those certain situations, as we come across them.
