Adam Savage's One Day Builds: Giant Nut and Bolt!

  • Julkaistu 29.07.2020
  • Adam expands his machining skills in today's One Day Build by attempting to machine a giant bolt and nut out of a chunk of brass. It's a thorough test of Adam's abilities working with his lathe and precision machining, as the two comically large parts have to fit in the end!

      Hi Adam
      My name Serg, I'm 16 y.o. and I'm from Russia.
      Thank you for your work. Before I saw your channel I didn't want work by my hand but at now I want study and work in this field.
      P. S. Sorry for the grammar😓😓

      Thank you SO much for sharing your scuff marks in a world where only the polished finish is usually shown. By doing so, you take the pressure to perform off of everyone who doesn't do a perfect job the first (or tenth) time. Bravo, good sir!

      @Calvin DL Slocum Cutting straight in is perfectly acceptable. Watch Joe Pie cut threads. His video on using thread wires will also save you a lot of PIA, just use one wire. Adam had a lot of stick out that resulted in vibration that you can see in the finished threads.

    21:37. Putting your fingers on a spinning part in the lathe, no matter how light of a touch it is, can be very dangerous! Anywhere from a little cut from a burr, or more seriously, your arm and you could be sucked into the machine itself. Resulting in injury or death.

    Are old such old lathes actually in use in the States?
    I mean we, behind the iron curtain, envied the NC and CNC machines we could not buy due to the COCOM list or could not afford because of their price dictated by the smugglers, and we were sorry for ourselves for having to learn and use old, full manual ones.
    I was a bit surprised seeing one here.
    And I am taking my hat off seeing it being used properly.

    Why did you not flip you 4 jaw chucks around to grab the brass from the other way

  • Wim Braber

    Cutting the faces at the very end would have allowed for the faces of nut and bolt to be aligned when tightened. But that.s just pushing it a bit I guess.

    Compound angle, it must be half the thread angle minus one half to one degree to allow the back side of the cutter to cut a min ammount of material so not to leave marks on back side of thread that is often the pressure side.
    For the nut the compound is reversed exactly.
    For best practices the tool tip must be on center line. Or helix is sqwed.
    The trick is the simplicity set compound at 29 deg from perpendicular left or right hand thread the tool must be inverted to do left while maintaining tip at center line of part.
    You can mesure distance from top of cross slide to center tip or the top of inner flat way to center tip requires a paralell or other piece of flat metal to extend the surface of flat way to center of bed so that its possible to get accurate hight to center tip.
    The real key is the dial on compound is normaly direct on radius so if you dial .02 you get .02 on radius or .04 on diameter at 30 deg thats .02 times .866 = .0173 on radius also moved tool tip in Z axis by .01 either positive or most probably negative .01this becomes important if your using a digital to trac tool tip.
    The real way to cut a left hand thread is to reverse the compound slide from 5o clock to 11 o-clock to running from 1to7 o-clock position with tool tip in a upright configuration not upside down. This requires you pull out to be reversed to push off part requires practice.
    Basicaly to do internal threads everything is exactly reversed. Tool up right.

    As a forklift operator this kinda reminds me of those times I've learned how to drive a new piece of equipment.
    Seeing as "screwing up" can potentially lead to death, injury, and mass asset damage, while at the same time often being under a time constraint, you spend your time creeping up on the limits of the machine.
    I take around 3 months to learn a truck. 2 weeks to get comfortable with it, then another 10 weeks consciously telling myself not to be comfortable because that's when near tip overs, tipped loads, failure to stop in time, among other dangers, are most likely to crop up.

    One thing I've seen other hobby machinists do is save the head cutting for last. That way you can screw the nut onto the bolt once the threads are cut and get both cut to the exact same size. It also means you aren't gripping a near finished surface through the majority of the process.

  • jonathan blais
    jonathan blais 8 tuntia sitten

    Start with the threading and lose the shims, tighten your chuck in the lathe. Then machine a nut with a slit in it that will tighten around your threads as you put it in the chuck for the mill so it doesn’t damage your threads. And use a tail stock if the work piece extends up to 3x the diameter out of your chuck

    watching this is awesome because i actually took an engineering class during my first year of highschool(9th grade) and one of the first things we learned is making a nut and bolt! we did basically everything you did! it was so awesome seeing you knew how to do everything
    edit: Although when cutting the threads on the nuts, we didnt use a lathe, we just used a tap.(im assuming they dont make taps that big, which is why)

    the shear plane of your bolt is too short and you're missing a washer, which detracts from the realism of the part. but you've created something beautiful and shiny and more importantly you've gained invaluable experience. thanks for sharing.

    awesome! Always wanted an obnoxiously large bolt XD Great job. If you want it to cut smoother you could angle the cross slide to the same angle as the cutter, 60 degree in this case and use that as your depth control so it only cuts on one face of the cutter

    Adam, at 6:28, the jaws in most newer chucks are reverseable. Just crank them out and turn them around for larger stock. Keep in mind they are married to their location and mostly numbered so put them back in the same slot

  • Pepin Gelardi
    Pepin Gelardi 10 tuntia sitten

    The real win here is that the resulting nut is large enough to allow you to rest the assembly on its side and turn the bolt (31:30). One of my favorite reasons to make things with my own hands: Mistakes as features!

    I'm curious if a real machinist can back me up, but I was taught to set the cross slide at 60° and use that to adjust the depth of cut each pass. I was told it helps avoid contact with the back of the tool, but it's tough to visualize and verify. Also, reducing the depth of cut as you get further along is key to avoid overloading the tool because to take a fatter chip the deeper your threads are. This was a fun build to watch for sure, especially since I normally just cheat and use a CNC lathe

    Adam, I just wanted to say it is great that a legendary builder such as yourself is willing to step up in front of millions of fans and say "here where my successes, but here where my mistakes as well". it stands as a reminder to all who look up to you and who wish to emulate you that mistakes happen, especially when you are learning new skills, and hopefully also allows them to not make some of the same mistakes along the way.

    29 1/2 degrees, thread wires, and clear off your head, where ya stackin em, endless production sucks the art, and fun right out of it. For all the tooling and skill required, it's more of a living wage to just go drive a truck. Cool video, I almost miss it. Don't miss double lead internal acme threading. 14 1/2 degrees. Don't forget teaching yourself cnc. Better tighten up that class fit by dragging a a scribe or piece of flat stock accros the nut threads before the boss comes over a sees you took one to many spring cuts.

    As you said, brass is sticky, grippy or whatever word you need for how brass machines. I was wondering if you used any lubricant on the brass, as I was taught to use kerosene to lube the metal while cutting it. If not, will you try it?
