  1. Bit late to the game but this little cheap guy has saved me a few blades and choice words. I've found shards of old rusted out nails with this so I think a cock ring would be easy to find. https://www.rockler.com/little-wizard-ii
  2. Finally got the output stage of my amp at least somewhat functioning. Spent a solid few weeks scratching my head and thinking I screwed something up. Nope, both 45 tubes I have had bad heaters. Bought another tube and now everything is as it should be. Next stop: find some output transformers.
  3. I finally got around to servicing my Sony PS-X7. The speed control was acting up by holding a speed but then jerking the table every couple of second. Found the service manual online, did a couple of the steps to adjust the speed controller and cleared the problem completely. Also learned a skill I never thought I would have to learn, how to wrap wires.
  4. Depending on the aesthetic you are going for, you could also paint just the tip.
  5. 2x on the welds. Looks like TIG and I gotta say, I'm jealous of the skills.
  6. Got the first stage of my next project working, an amp that started out as a Menace clone and has changed a bit over time. 6SN7 input stage, CCS with a 21st Century Maida circuit as the B+ supply.
  7. This would also be an option. https://daisous.com/collections/n03_cutting-utensils/products/4994163294818
  8. 220V is also good for welding, surprisingly few have a 120V option. Which I why I ended up with an AHP. And Naaman, that is damn sexy. Did you do the modeling off of your badge yourself? I picked up an SMD practice kit since I have a few things I want to do that would require it. Tried hand-soldering for the fun of it. The results work, but are not worth the picture.
  9. That tool holder is hawt AF. How did you get the wrench sizes?
  10. I cannot wait to see what you get up to with that beast. Very envious.
  11. Real clean. I agree that's an interesting front panel mount, and also an interesting clip thing going on for the heatsink.
  12. I have not, though I probably will now. Feed and speeds are still a bit arcane to me. Easy enough for wood now. But I know the Shapeoko can do softer metals and I intend to do that soon. Even picked up a surplus fridge compressor to kit out as an air assist/mist cooler
  13. I goofed around enough in Gimp and Inkscape designing patches in the past to at least be mediocre at making vectors. And like both of you, just cautiously dipping my toes into 3D so far. The motivation problem I have is that if I do not have a project that requires it, I'm not going to really put effort into learning.
  14. Naaman, I've been using predominantly VCarve Desktop since all my work so far has been 2.5D designs. Kinda steep at $350 but it does make simple cutouts real easy. The Cub Scout plaques took me maybe 15 minutes to set up since I was able to easily import a vector file. There's a lot of community support so a G-code post-processor I bet has already been written for your specific machine/controller. The bad: the Desktop version only allows a 24x24" work area. Unlimited costs $700, which it looks like you'll need on your machine. I will say, having used my little diode laser add-on, it's good for space efficiency. But if you have the space for a whole other machine, I would say a standalone CO2 laser would be way nicer to use, and about the same price.
