I am not buying a Porsche…..
I am selling it….
It is made so that it can be dis-assembled easily to put in the garage.
There is a single nut to hold the balancing arm, which we 3D printed.
Here comes 3D printing to the rescue. Made a few versions of a removal tool and settled on the final simple design of a “Captured” nut.
It works very well and the white PLA print, looks appropriate for food and “white goods”.
In the background some paper “thinking” about a manual machine for Noe ! Soon to be built ….
Tonton qu’est fou had to do a memorial for Leo…as he is now…6 feet under.
I really like the brioche that my mum makes when we go on holiday in France during the summer. It is just a pain to wait 12 months to have some brioche! Decided to get a new bread maker from Panasonic (the old one still had an American plug and we have been back from the USA for 8 years now…)
The Brioche recipe is very good and works very well with the automatic bread maker.
How to make :
First drive, ever, in first car, ever, ….is it really necessary to be a Lambo…or was it a Jag…growing too fast
I am continuing my experiments in spices and cooking temperatures as well as a method for cooking such as sous-vide or slow roast etc…
Latest is normal roast in the oven with a temperature probe inside the ham to check “when” it is done rather than relying on weight etc…Target temperature was 63 Celsius.
Interestingly, once the ham was removed from the oven, the temperature continued to rise for a little while. As a consequence, a 63 Celsius in the oven ends-up being more like 65/66 once out. This is very different compared to sous-vide cooking which only cooks at the exact temperature.
In the oven the “180 degrees” outside of the ham, slowly make their way to the center until the center is at 63 degrees.
In sous-vide the whole ham will cook evenly to the 63 degrees.
This ham was made with some spices and 2 table spoons of brown sugar to coat the ham. Delicious…
About to go on holiday but feeling blue with all the rain in the UK and 50 years birthday bash coming soon….
Made a new Trivet design, inspired from some Pinterest boards I had visited months ago…
Laser cut from 3mm Bamboo, then glued together to make 9mm thick, then sanded to 2000 grit to give nice feel and sheen.
The fit could be better, I did not take into account the Laser Kerf in the design and also I might have botched the laser settings in terms of focus and therefore beam thickness.
Compared to the “3 Branches” version, this one would be more expensive to produce as more cuts and trickier fit. The “design look” is nice but probably does not warrant the extra effort to produce compared to the 3 branches one. Still, I like it.
I should sign it.
The handlebar was broken and glue was never going to work.
The part is not very complicated but needed some smooth curves and a recess for the connection to the steering mechanism.
I created the fusion 360 3D model, then created a CAM setup, then posted all this to several G-Code files on my home network, [one for the pocket and the holes, one for the contour] then went to the garage and ran the G-Code on my X-Carve with a 10mm router bit at 16.000RPM, 3mm cut depth, 600mm/min feed.
It all worked perfectly ! for once…No broken bits, No burning or parts, No flying wood parts in the garage…
My friends were very happy and the fit is simply perfect.
