and the day is saved again.... onesy #floortarget for a customer in a #goddamnedhurry #machinist #anzenmazu #manualproductionrun

for those who asked, heres exactly how im roughing these shoulders out. using the #plungemill method, which im a big fan of, i also use a tubing spacer between body of endmill and collet so it cant push up into the spindle. #machinist #anzenmazu #manualproductionrun #makingchipsforpapertowels

#manualproductionrun update... the other part im making has the same 1.250" dia. turn so i went ahead and roughed those out on the mill too. now its time to clean. #machinist #anzenmazu #jobshopdayandnight #papertowelmoney

little extra credit #armday 1 1/8" s&d drill in aluminum (no pilot hole) somewhere around 600 rpm. #machinist #anzenmazu #manualproductionrun #workingforthegains

for the last op i had to use another part with a male 3 1/2"-8 thread held in a collet and screw my parts onto it to bore a 1.380" +/- .001" hole. it wouldve been to much set up hassle to do it on the the first turning op nor do i have a collet big enough to hold the 6" dia. almost done other than final deburring and finishing. #machinist #kinzokuaato #manualproductionrun #surveyequipment #opticaltooling

parts im making are an accessory clamp. top half has a radius because it holds things if various diameters, so the bottom is a v for stable location. drilled 1/4" hole to clear bottom of the v, ran a 1/2" endmill through as deep as i could, then finished with a 2 flute 45° cutter. no feed, all hand cranked. #machinist #anzenmazu #jobshopdayandnight #manualproductionrun #opticaltooling

thankful to be slavin away for the man.... not much work comin thru the doors these days, but a #surveyequipment job just showed up. so while youre all drinking, celebrating, and watching sports, ill be slaving away for myself, and i couldnt be happier. time to catch up on my posts. #machinist #millwright #anzenmazu #manualproductionrun #parttimejobshop

#sketchysetupsaturday theres only 2 pcs. so why drag out the dividing head. 1/4"-20 tap, 17/64" clearance 3 holes 120° apart so i use the hole pattern i drilled in face to center these holes between those holes. #machinist #anzenmazu #parttimejobshop #opticaltooling #manualproductionrun

These parts will eventually be some diagonal brackets to stiffen up a Nexel wire shelving unit I'm using for a metal stock rack. Hopefully these will mitigate some of the sway created by the hundreds of pounds of metal stock on the shelf. #instamachinist #manualproductionrun #everybodyisaheroinaluminum #bridgeportmill #manualmachinist

#micrometeradaptors back from the lathe dept. hopefully can finish them tomorrow. now its time to cook, and pre yoga #nap my practice has been suffering lately cause we now have a #mouthbreather in the class. 5 weeks straight of leaving with a headache. #misophonia aint no joke, but im not bitching. just need a deeper channel. #machinist #anzenmazu #manualproductionrun #jobshopdayandnight #opticaltooling #shavasana

These are some of my early manually machined parts for a 3D printer build. #everybodyisaheroinaluminum #manualproductionrun #manualmachinist #instamachinist #manualmachining #3dprinting

one #manfinger , #1 ctr. drill, 3/64" drill, and a #0-80 tap.... i picked the wrong week to give up horse tranquilizers.... may the gods of #micromachining shine down upon me. #machinist #anzenmazu #smallerthansmall #manualproductionrun #custom #dontbreaktheoath

not gonna lie.... this #intervaltraining is making me succeptible to #involuntarynaps ... took last night off, thus morning its the last machining element to #coastersets i have some of my #symbols made from brass for each end but i wanted a decorative pocket for them, so after a couple trys, i came up with this. 3/4" endmill with a 1/4" radius. test block next to a good part for reference. knock these out, then i have 36 #0-80 holes to tap. might be time for a video.... #machinist #anzenmazu #manualproductionrun #jobshopdayandnight #handmadeinthewastelandsofillinois #custom #goinbigforafriend

trying to get a couple hours of #coastertime before practice with #gammagoat , #spotify is not disappointing today. but i was shocked that the chronic by drm dre or the sane asylum by blind illusion isnt on there. whats up with that?.... #machinist #anzenmazu #manualproductionrun #custom #handmadeinthewastelandsofillinois #whatilistentoatwork #baptists #siouxsie #rush #blackarmyjacket

lots more #detail machining and #finishwork but this is where im headed with the coaster holders. like i said, this thing has some weight to it, so it could be colonel mustard in the parlor with a coaster set. has a very classic look i think, but what do i know, im just a drummer. #machinist #anzenmazu #jobshopdayandnight #manualproductionrun #custom #handmadeinthewastelandsofillinois

more detail milling today on the coaster holders. im adding some #ballnose grooves for kind of a column/architectural feel. im super bummed today, had my biweekly check in and i only gained half a pound. so im taking out my frustration at the gym. gonna see all my friends for the morning class, then gonna kill my arms with my normal saturday routine. ugh.... how can i eat this much and not gain weight?.... #machinist #anzenmazu #manualproductionrun #custom #details #fitnessblues

#coaster production has been temporarily suspended because my parts returned from the anodizers. as usual i spent about an hour reworking all the knobs i bought (shouldnt be like that), now its time to #packthebox and #writetheinvoice . this represents about a week and a half of work, maybe 10,000 revolutions on the cranks of my machines, and most importantly a months worth of utilities, groceries, and supplements (and maybe some narcotics and drumsticks). get out the craft paper and strapping tape, lets do this. #machinist #anzenmazu #manualproductionrun #opticaltooling #jobshopdayandnight #jobwelldone #jfb

i spent 15 years building fixtures for operators that didnt want to work for a living, or didnt wanna do something cause that operator over there doesnt have to do it, or were too busy selecting polyphonic ringtones on these new inventions called cellular phones (im kinda old... thankfully). they had to be #idiotproof .... great thing about building fixtures for myself is i know exactly how this idiot works, so i can cut a few corners. so i pulled out a square my grandfather made back in the 50s and glued it to the salvaged piece of coaster and #blam , were in business. 100 radii to go. #machinist #anzenmazu #manualproductionrun #jigandfixturedesign #neverheardofher #custom #handmadeinthewastelandsofillinois

i love tuesdays, or at least every fourth tuesday cause that means its #haircut day. cant wait to see my friend lee at @hansencobarbers cause im in bad shape. while i wait, next step on the #coasters is to make a fixture for laying out radii on wood inserts. wood is so thin a corner rounding mill would be catastrophic, so i have to do this the old fashioned way, scribe, saw, and sand x 104 corners. i have a couple extra, and this one had a #ginch (technical term for fuck up) in it, so it gets sacrificed. lets see if i can have this done before #meal2 #machinist #anzenmazu #manualproductionrun #buildingjigs #custom #handmadeinthewastelandsofillinois

now one of the most nerve racking operations.... this flooring is 12mm thick and i need to take it down to about 9/32" or half its thickness. and remember kids, when youre milling wood, never push your cut off the end of the workpiece, or its gonna breakout (not the good kind). always have flutes of endmill turning into workpiece. if someone stops by this afternoon, ill get a video to demonstrate. #machinist #anzenmazu #manualproductionrun #jobshopdayandnight #custom #coasters #handmadeinthewastelandsofillinois

ok now its time to get serious. this is a sample of hardwood flooring that will be made into the coaster inserts. not only will pieces have to be cut to size and corners radiused, but ill have to mill down the thickness. #oof first things first, gonna dip into shop profits and cover the good side in masking tape. #machinist #anzenmazu #manualproductionrun #jobshopdayandnight #custom #coasters #handmadeinthewastelandsofillinois

sawed and sanded... i put a new disc on my #apex disc sander and inadvertantly removed most of a couple fingernails blending the radii in. oh well, theyll grow back. time for #meal4 #machinist #anzenmazu #szechuandavesnailpalace #manualproductionrun #custom #coasters #handmadeinthewastelandsofillinois
