Gadgets and Gizmos Part 9 final

A final look at some other mainly historic items. A closer look at the #2 fly press which has been partially cleaned up. Then a selection of face plates and adapters, followed by showing some vices, one being an old trusty cast steel bench vice, and a number of smaller examples. Finally to finish off — a simple stand block for a micrometer and a large cleaned up tap wrench. That for now at least concludes my look at various things used and made over time. Hopefully a few things might have proved of interest or even inspired a machining hobbyist to find inspiration to make something similar. If over time we make something else that could be interesting, we’ll do another video. In the meantime, as mentioned in an earlier section, the most recent work done on the now limited facility was concerning a gimbal unit for a GlideCam, here — – where we made bearing blocks etc – just a stills sequence.

    Hi Denis – well, check my channel – ChrisB 257 – the series went from into
    thru part 9. Since then I have tried to add a few practical examples of
    gadgets in use. I may have one or two more to come. Most gizmos are fairly
    straightforward and I think several can be found to be very useful extras
    for machining work. I made most about 20 or more years ago when I was more
    active but glad I kept most of them.
