I was asked to make “pipe clamps” and “collars” for 8 16” OD pipes.

I designed the “pipe clamps” (1st picture) like a shaft collar with a compression fit. These are to stop the 3000 lb. pipes from sliding into a hole when placed upright.

The “collars” (2nd picture, and on the right), I used the same fastening system as above, but these guys have a different purpose… They are meant to clamp on the top of the pipe, and to attach 3 legs at 120 degrees of each other for “plumbing up”.

Then, they asked me to go ahead and design feet (3rd picture) for the “plumbing up” legs, and produce them as well.

That’s;

8- sets of “pipe clamps” for the bases,

8- sets of “plumbing up” collars,

24- feet for the legs

and I plasma cut all 278 pieces it took to make all 40 finished parts.

Jeans and boots… This is actually from January. Custom made jeans from Imogene+Willie, and Red Wings… That’s my Scottish Deerhound in the background.

Here’s the jig for the top of the chair. It’s all 1/4”  A36 plate. Still need to make the bending dies, and a stand for the whole thing… The chair only uses two pieces of steel rod, hence the two part jig.

I just mocked up the new mobile base for the PlasmaCAM. It only needs a coat of paint, and a detachable plasma cutter rack to stow the “business generator” under the table. Next up material handling rack/table for storing sheets and loading the table. I’ll shoot a few pictures of the next few items I end up making.
