Build some extras and sell them I'd buy one.
Totally amazing work
that is one nice looking case
All the alu components will be anodized. The base, you've seen in the picture, is not in contact with the water; on it I'll put the bottom in stainless steel (AISI 316L).
Approximatly it can cost €4,00/Kg.
Seriously incredible stuff...
That's the first fase of workship of the two bottom pieces in AISI 316
Zoom Raw stainless steel ring, ready for CNC work.
Some work fases.
Zoom Only one of the faces was milled. The mill working, obtain the wished part leaving only 0.5 mm. of residual material, that I worked out with a traditional cut-off mill.
Zoom The external perimeter surface was worked with abrasive disk.
Some images of the first fase result.
See you soon speaking about the 2nd fase.
Gosh! Your work is reaally professional!!
Way to go, pal!
good work man... Very good work. keep it up and dont let us hang im on the edge of my seat.
can I ask a question? why is the stock or raw material so thick? is the thick alluminum material easier to work with?
also, I am in AHHHH!!! with the workmanship this project has.
I think the answer you're looking for is because the CNC machines that he is using to make these parts actually carve out the desired shape from it. No bending of the material, just like a wood carving or a marble statue.
... and just as beautiful as a marble statue too
with one difference........ITS SHINEY!!!
Great job so far.
i assume that those machines are at ure work?... if so howcome they let you use them for personal use?
Mummy can you buy me some equipment like that man! Pleeeeaaassee.
My hat goes off to you thats some very fine work. I wish my lathe and routers were at that level I'm still using manually controlled ones so it's a lot harder to do that level of work but I will try one day.
Looking forward to the next update.
Are you nuts?
This kind of steel is very difficult to mill.You need machine tools made exactly for this type of material because it’s a hard work
It sure looks nice, but what did you actually modify with your own hands, everything done by machines, this would be no competition compared to some cases out there made mostly using tools instead of computers and cnc machines.
nice work though,
I'm not sure if the CNCs are CAD based in his case, but even if they are, it still takes a crapload of skill to know not only how to design exactly what you have in your head from scratch, but also to know how to use the machine! It's not as easy as it looks. Especially if they AREN'T CAD-based.
The thickness of raw material depends exclusive from the object, I want obtain. Particularly I can tranquillize you about the thickness: a great or a small piece are worked out with the same machine.
What you say is right; I THANK YOU for your compliments... a statue... (isn't too much)?
Thanks everyone for interesting
Those are the pictures of the 2nd fase of workship of AISI little bottom.
In this fase will worked out two threaded holes (3/8" gas).
The first hole with a twist drill (D 10mm.).
The drilling with a twist drill (D 15mm.).
Drilling (D. 10 mm.) tangent to the inside circle.
Zoom Tapping 3/8" Gas.
Zoom The bottom is over!
See you soon with the next step.
Some pictures of the firts reservoirs pieces and a assembly test.
Finally the ideas become to have a form.
Absolutely beautiful work.
Makes me wish I had a CNC machine and the skill to use one.
bejesus thats some excellent work, Im actually looking forward to the next installment of this work log.
