    If the blade breaks, try brazing it. Sand a scarf joint,(taper each end)and braze. Shouldn't have to anneal after brazing.

    Although, not sure about that blade now, might be brittle where its already affected.

    So far it's holding up. I think annealing it took care of the brittle issue. We cut a bunch of stuff with it today. I got another one sitting on the shelf now but I'm going to let that one ride to see how long it makes it. Welding should do fine as all the off the shelf blades I buy are welded, not brazed. Brazing is certainly a good option though. I wonder if SI Bronze brazing with a tig would work well.

    LOL!

    First time we fired up my VMC the installer did a tool change run and I'd never seen nor heard one being done. Is scared the crap out of me! I though the whole thing was coming apart.

    And yes, the ability of the machine to move very fast is impressive. My first lesson in setting Z was bad - I ended up being about 17" below what I'd set and it took a 2.5" cutter and drove it into the piece with amazing speed and force. Fortunately the machine knew stuff wasn't right and shut down after it put the cutter about 1/4" into the material.

    I had a fadal lose the setscrew on the z encoder while I was standing there watching it. That was interesting.

    I also ran a machine many moons ago that changed tools so fast I jumped every time it did. Never got used to it.

    It's been to long. We got back to working on the buggies the other day. I had taken a while off due to going to ride in Colorado for two weeks and having to get ready. We made some progress on the frames. They are starting to look like a buggy. Unfortunately all my previous pictures were on photobucket.

    The chassis are starting to get a bit large to drag in and out of the shop by hand. I'd much rather bring them in on forks when I have a bit of time to work on them. I decided the best way to do something about that would be to build a couple of custom stands to hold them. I'm going to bolt them to the chassis with some tabs that will line up with the mounts for the nerf bars.

    First, we cut all the tubing to length and jigged it up on the table.


    Then, we welded it all out and cut a top from 1/8" plate. After we're done building the buggies I plan to add extensions to the leg to use these as work benches.

    KILLER!! I like the table! I built one just like it for my build. It worked awesome. I was able to literally build the whole car on it.
