More Beam Making

Thought I’d show you the setup for notching beams.  Went to check the automatic uploads from my phone to find that somehow something had automatically made an animated gif of Surly working the Bridgeport:

A few observations:

  • The rotary table and right angle unit belong Surly’s shop-mate and patriarch to the Boston burners, Doug Ruuska.
  • We had some crazy ideas for how to cut these before, such as using the type of heavy-duty hole saw used by some tube notchers, but they did not cooperate.  This one relatively cheap end mill, however, is delivering the goods.
  • Some of you might have noticed that piece of square tube securing the beam in the vice with an hex key.  That’s a jig to orient the beams for the cube corners.  Once clamped into place, he can rotate the beam to get new notches at right angles.
  • The most observant of you might have noticed that the beam Surly is notching is way too short to be part of the structure.  You are correct.  What it’s for, however, will have to wait for another post…

They added a heated pool and built aJacuzzi inside a gazebo.They had their yard professionally landscaped.Antiques, chinaware and crystal began arriving by the truckload—literally.Granted the schafers were a two-Career couple—becky a citibank trust service manager on wall street and peter a paralegal at a manhattan law firm—but this, by toms river standards, was conspicuous consumption. In case you haven’t noticed, advertisements all michael jordan shoes aimed at treating low levels of testosterone, or”Low t,”Have displaced those erectile dysfunction commercials featuring side-By-Side bathtubs.The ads ask:Are you suffering from any of the following:Depression, low energy, weight gain, fatigue, low sex drive? Still, while you can make fun of it, the driving is as interesting as ever.Most of the shots are beautiful just for the locations, and the story is jordans women shoes a universally appealing one.Tweak the ethnicities and cars, and it might be parts of american graffiti.You’ve seen this movie in multiple other iterations, and if you liked those, you will probably like this one.That said, again, it’s problematic.
