Sweet! That took a lot of thought and work. Sounds like you got the to build just about anything.
I like how you say, I got bored one day.
I know that took some time and effort. Looks like it'll be a fun ride

I tinker with all kind of , Scooter has been out to my place and seen some of the I have collected.

I am taking a coolster 50 cc chineese fourwheeler and ripping the motor out of it now and all the electrical . I am going to drop in a 3.5HP briggs motor and a centrifugal clutch in it for my 4 year old.

It's simplicity at it's finest, thumb throttle to go, and foot brake to stop, a simple kill switch on the handle bar, and a yank starter to make it go.

Got the fourwheeler for free, and snagged an edger out of the trash that needed the carbs cleaned. motor will drop right in under the existing bodywork.

All total once I rebuild the carb, buy a centrifugal clutch for it and a chain I may have less than 100.00 bucks in it for the youngest one.

There are some Glock fanatics I know that would have a coronary over what you did to that thing.

Those polymer frames do not like the additional stresses placed on the frame. That could lead to fatigue and potential stress fractures resulting in failure. Depending on the mag well thickness, it could weaken it as well.

I kept the stippling shallow for that very reason. The beavertail was a must though...I was getting slide bite due to my large hands.

Popper valve for DuPont. Doing EDM oil channels in the bore. Already did EDM lug slots, still have another keyway and a seal groove to do.

Finish product is cool but the process if all boring. Roughing the slots out took 2 hours per slot (4 total) and 3 hours per slots for finish pass of .005.

I didn't make this but I had to fix all the holes highlighted with green marker. CNC guys snapped off drill bits that we had to fix. It's some kind of extrusion plate.

The alien is like 7ft tall

The white thing is one of the first flying models of a military drone.

EDM is a bad process and from I've seen takes some skills to perfect.

This isn't an elaborate one. No moving table or orbital head. Simply Z axis movement. Having to make the tooling from scratch and adjusting the voltages is the biggest headache. I'm just learning but I've used CNC mills in the past.


I wish it had all that fancy stuff.

Multi-axis wire sounds like fun and a headache all at the same time.

I've run a wire EDM before. It was just a pain when the wire broke.

On this machine it's self feeding on most breaks, if anything else you just some feed through the head real quick n boom back in action.
