Hi Everyone, It's been a while since i've posted. Thought I would share a little of what I'm working on in the workshop. A 1/4 scale of a German DRGM bench top drill press. The process started as an Ebay purchase. From the original I took detailed measurements & made 3D drawings on my computer. From these drawings, I created an .stl file. When that was done I emailed away the file for printing. I like to use the Solidscape 3D printer. Unfortunately, the printer is a little out of my price range hence the reason for me contracting the printing process out. A week later I received the printed parts & proceeded to cast them using the lost wax method. The parts were cast in silver. From that point I proceed the assemble the pieces. Drilling & threading the pieces. Making thumb screws (thanks to Bill Robertsons wood planer class) Then turning & knurling a working pin vise chuck. I will try to add pictures. Hopefully you will be able to open the link?
