This project is a little cooling fan that I made for my 2”x72” belt grinder. It runs off the rear shaft of the treadmill motor that is the muscle behind the grinder. It forces cool air through the rear of the motor to flywheel at the front (where the contact/drive pulley sits). The blade pitch is 45 degrees (five blades in all), and is about 3” in diameter. I made a custom hub to attach it to the drive shaft, and I plasma cut the fan blade itself. I designed the fan blade in AutoCAD, and imported it to the plasma cam software. It’s pretty cool having fun tools to fix equipment with!

A little lamp shade that I threw together with only about five minutes in design and fabrication. No welding, no tools, just a quick cut out, and hand bent with only my fingers.

If it can be thrown, it’s fun! 

Just having fun on Thursday, and I have been neglecting my followers… Sorry folks!

These are locks for a restaurant patio that I just completed. Thanks DUST! Lots of parts, loads of fab time. Custom all aluminum housings and strikes (not shown), and special 7/8” backset mortise boxes. I threw in a name plaque on each ‘cause you gotta sign your work…

Custom branding iron I just whipped up for a customer in New York to use at their vacation home in the desert. The vacation home is called “the Lazy Yucca”.

I made a quick coat/pants rack for my closet… A few mess ups in the cutting, but otherwise hard as H@!!…

As per request, here is a shot of the cut quality in the aluminum (1/8” thick). Aluminum cuts like butter, but not nearly as smooth as steel…
