Oh ****, that's not good. Not bad enough you have to go to the hospital I hope.
No. Not bad enough. There is nothing they can do for it that I can't do at home. It'll heal. I'm just mad at my carelessness.
Sorry about your finger Tom. Glad it wasnt worse.
My finger is feeling pretty good. Only time it hurts is when I bump it.
Couldn't get the glass off of the mold so I cut it in half and pulled it that way. The outline fits great now for gluing the 2 half's back together and trimming sanding and filling the glass. I had to destroy the mold to get the glass off. that sucks cause I wanted to use it for a sanding buck. Wonder how that spray insulation foam would work for that. I guess I'll find out. Yes I just thought of it when I was typing.
Well hell Tom, thats just cool as cool can be.
Got it rough trimmed and glued back together. Now I have to go to a club meeting.
Well I'll be horn swaggled. Lookie there. That is something for sure. Pretty cool Tom.
What is the plan to attach it, some small screws around the perimeter?
Yes. I need some small flat head single blade screws. All I can find is Philips.
The shield is real flimsy. Can't sand the outside like I planned at first but realized when I pulled it off the mold that it was going to be a problem. I came up with filling the cavity with insulation foam. The least expandable kind. this will take a little while to set up. Does anyone think this will work. I don't know but think it might.
I would have never even thought about that. I would have probably stuck a large car washing sponge inside and moved it around while sanding combined with a lot of cursing as well. I think I like your idea better.
I think it is a great solution. The only thing I may have done is to flip it over on a sheet of wax paper and put a little bit of weight on it while the foam expands and hardens. Either way it should be good support once it hardens. That Tamas, he has all the tricks.
Thanks for the mutual admiration society. It keeps me going. LOL
Guess what. It didn't harden up. just the top did. I don't know if I just didn't shake up the can enough or what. I got another can of foam and trying it again. I put it down in two layers. the first layer hardened waiting on the second layer.
Oh blutty ell!!
I put down 3 layers of foam letting each layer set up first. It did the job.
Also wanted to do something I haven't seen before. Making up some Dzoose fasteners for the flange on the engine shield.
I finally got me a drum sander. I needed this could have used it many times if I had one. Now I do.
I don't think I have ever seen one of those type of sanders.
Am I seeing that correctly that when it spins and the "rifling" for lack of a better word of the sanding drums, pushes the energy of what you are sanding downwards towards the table?
Or am I just not getting out enough and visiting the local machine shops? Lol.
The sander spins and move up and down at the same time. Great for inside radious’.
I think I have heard of a bigger version of something like that.
Doug. I forgot to say that you can change the size of the middle thing and make it way bigger if you want to. I have a feeling Pam will like that.
