    I thought a Machinist Relay is a track and field event where the first machinist gets the baton to some state of completeness, doesn't tell the next guy what needs to be done, pulls a random fuse, hides the keys to the shop, and then hands the baton to the next guy. First team to pass the finish line with a fully machined baton wins.

      @AvE I heard the cops are looking out for a guy who's been breaking into local craft shops and dipping his testicles in the glitter. Yeah, it's pretty nuts...

      RocketSurgeon I actually expected a force control machine element that would also provide 2 or more distinct mechanical states, suitable for such things as levers and end stops.

    I think you could have also put some harmonic dampener on the opposite side of the cuts to prevent buildup of harmonic resonance which probably contributed to the breakage.

      That foam is pretty garbage. A 2-part epoxy poured in the channel would hold significantly better.

        Use some of those sweet patreon dollars and buy some 136°F Eutectic Fusible Alloy. Fun to play with and great for temporarily fusing parts for machining. Cheap too!

                                  I have a Cryobi impact that is beginning to let the literal smoke out. I intend in replacing it with a milfuckee, so I won't be trying to warrenty it. My co-worker had one that caught fire while working, and id rather have it disposed of in either a safe manor or in a spectacular manor on camera.

                                  Id be happy to sent it to you so that you can fix it to death properly, in a vidjyo, for the interested public.

                                          Hi AvE, I came across a video here about the Searl Effect Zero Point Generator. I would value your opinion and or discussion on if you think this is this a viable energy source. It's certainly not the usual half baked doesn't resemble reality in the slightest quackery. There is some very real physics to the claim. Please take some time to veiw it. You can reach me at jimklima at rocketmail dot com. Keep up the good work on the videos. Amusing as they are they have proved time and again to be very helpful.

                                                                            First time through, I didn't see that the plate hadn't been milled all the way through, so I was scratching my head, trying to figure out why you were foaming a completed part, and how that was supposed to retroactively keep it from falling apart during the milling. I noticed my confusion though (a good skill to have, by the way), and went back to watch it again, to find out that you (presumably) mill it part way, fill that in, then flip it over and (hopefully) mirror the schematic to finish milling it.
