7075, 7076... Whatever It Takes

Don't know if this was worth the effort, but was in a chatty mood. Come along for the ride as I sort out a few little things on a Factory Scorpa. We'll do bad things, I promise.

    What formula do you use for heat in a project while cutting metal down to hold a close tolerance?

    Maybe helpful! I onced had a similar experience with a Renault Clio Sports car, I had just changed the pads but the owner complained that the brakes were spongy. Turns out that the pads I was given were the wrong type, so as soon as I changed the pads the problem was solved.

    Somewhere there is a crusty old machinist with an eye patch and 4 fingers watching your videos then talking shit about how you aren’t a real machinist since you still have all 10 digits.

    you can test 7075 series of aluminum with calcium chloride solution, if it turns black or dark grey it's 7075. And for your extra bonus points if it's Magnesium use white vinegar and will also turn grey black bubbling. yes you can tig weld magnesium with the right filler and lots of argon.

    "as you can see from the wear on the bolt hole, this'll probably get replaced sooner rather than later" Why not just make and press a delrin or brass bushing in? We do it all the time for old SU carburetors with steel throttle shafts. Years more service is left in those things

    I just have to say here that the production value of your videos is quite impressive. So what were you in your former life, machine operator of film producer? You are definitely quite adept at both.

    why would we design an aesthetic hole in something that is expressly a "guard" against ingress?

    If there was a concern about the weldability (is that a word?) of the footpeg, wouldn't a bead of weld on the point where the footpeg contacts the frame accomplish the same thing? Maybe harder to get access but it appears the frame is steel so...On the other hand, I paused the video to read the instruction placard on the ultrasonic footpeg cleaner... was NOT disappointed!

    Why not a single machinist here on IRgos manufactures his own custom Lathe Chuck? "Time" is not a valid answer for the one who uses the lathe and mill as a hobby, are you able to make one? Without a jig grinder.

    With all these comments, several people probably already pointed out that the Loctite has bad long term effects on many plastics, PVC is among them I believe. It doesn't kick off where the threads (or shoulder) contact the bore ID, and it just sets there, eating away at the part. Hope it helps, and Congrats on the new toy!!

    A foot peg specific, ultrasonic cleanser. As if no other metal objects can go in there.

    What about rubber or neoprene back stops affixed with glue or what ever. That asymmetry would drive me nuts.

    Fyi, the usual causes of spongy brakes is usually air in the hydraulics, oil contamination, worn out master cylinder, or mechanical binding. I'm glad you replaced the problem with something you've been wanting ;)
