Received an email asking how I keep plate and flat steel pieces straight when I am welding steel assemblies.

To help avoid heat distortion one needs heavy duty straight edges, lots of clamps, and a through understanding
of the non-even heat effects produced by welding.

The heavy duty straight edges that I use most often are made from 2" X 2" x 1/4" heavy wall, radius corners, square tubing cut to 8-feet, 6-feet, 4-feet, 3-feet, and 2-feet used with 8" and 12" Strong Hand clamps.
4-feet and 8-feet get the most use.

There are entire books and thousands of online articles written about controlling welding induced heat distortion.
Review a general welding text and practice.
Start with scrap to get the basics down and then start building projects.

My self-rule is to clamp the parts until the assembly can hold together in place for welding on its own.

vertigo,
"Next step: Next step is to burn galvanizing off bolt heads."

Received an email that stated,
Why do you need to burn the galvanizing of the bolt heads?"

Vertigo
So that the paint will stick to the bolt heads. Most paint won't stick to shiny galvanizing.

Here is how I remove the galvanizing.
Drill a row of holes in a piece of 1/4" thick metal.
Put the bolts in the holes.
Use my MAP gas torch to heat the bolt head until the galvanizing vaporizes. Takes around 10-15 seconds each.
(Do this in a well ventilated area. Preferably outside.

When doing metal grinding I use safety glasses, a full face shield, and a N100 3M mask.
Exposure to grinding wheel, rotary stone, and metal dust, will do serious damage over time to your lungs.
I use the Honeywell Uvex® Bionic S8500 Faceshield with Uncoated Polycarbonate Visor for light grinding and a welding automatic darkening helmet set on grinding mode for heavy grinding.

The Honeywell Uvex® Bionic S8500 Faceshield with Uncoated Polycarbonate Visor is extremely lightweight and adjustable for all-day comfort. This revolutionary face shield is designed for rugged jobs and is ideal for workers that are exposed to impact, chemical splashes, and airborne debris.
Clear, uncoated polycarbonate visor
Designed for rugged jobs
Ergonomic design, extremely lightweight and balanced for all day comfort
Easily replaceable visor with dual position choices
Comfortable cell foam on back of headgear
Breathable, removable, washable headband
Can be comfortably worn with most goggles and respirators
Enhanced protection from falling or flying objects, impact, chemical splash, and airborne debris
Technical Specs
Color: Clear

Here is the best book ever written on CNC programing/operating systems.
The lathe threading section in particular is extremely well written.
This book is written in easy to understand language and very well illustrated.
I bought the hardback copy because I like to make ink and highlighter marks and notations.

No other book covers CNC control setup in such practical detail. This unique reference from the author of the best-selling CNC Programming Handbook features nearly all of the activities a typical CNC operator performs on a daily basis. Starting with overall descriptions and in-depth explanations of various features, it goes much further and is sure to be a valuable resource for anyone involved in CNC.
Describes working with all types of offsets for milling and turning applications, interpretation of part programs, applying trial cuts, making program changes, and much more.
Places emphasis on troubleshooting many common problems that occur in CNC operations.
Presents suggested methods of correction, along with methods of prevention.

Business and travel demands have kept me away from my Tumbler and Justice League builds. Hope to be back to my builds sometime in late January or early February. Read an excellent book while traveling.
MACHINING for dummies by Kip Hanson
ISBN: 978—1-119-42613-4 copyright 2018

The book is a very well written, 300-page, progressive history/review/summary from past to present covering machine tools, simple and complex metalworking and other materials processes, CNC programming, G-code, computer software, robotics, etc.
I would describe it as the best tool and process summary I have read.
The material is relevant to the building of most parts and assemblies in today’s world.

sly,
"The reason I use an up spiral bit is that it throws the cut material up to the top where the dust collection vacuum removes it. Even with that the foam makes a lot of dust, and it's statically charged so it sticks to EVERYTHING."
Hey sly,
Ever think about fabricating a machine enclosure to control most of the dust.
You could build your self one for 1-200.oo.

Here is the information on the enclosure for the HD5 Shark that go for 600.oo
The CNC Shark Enclosure is designed to help control dust, add safety, and reduce machining noise. Made from Aluminum, Plexiglas and all steel connectors, the CNC Shark Enclosure is designed to give years of service. Convenient hinged access door with magnetic catch allows for easy material removal or bit changes. Pre-drilled 3” hole for cords allows for the case to be placed on any flat surface. The CNC Shark Enclosure works well for schools, trainers or anyone needing additional safety during demonstrations. Fits all CNC Shark HD Models except Slim Line or HD extended, also fits older Pro and Pro Plus models as well as it can also be used with CNC Piranha XL

This is an excellent book for anyone interested in acquiring a working knowledge of the stepper and servo motors
used in CNC machines and other applications, as well as, most other types of electric motors.
It is written in easy to understand language aimed at persons who want to acquire a practical working knowledge of electrical motors without too much jargon and theory.
It is written for persons who use machines, powered and/or controlled with electric motors and/or for others
who are planning to use electric motors in their projects.

It is not a book about how to build motors. vertigo
