New research paper outlining method for making lithium batteries able to be charged "10,000 times" and at higher energy densities, giving a longevity and range comparable to petrol engines.
Probably going to be 5-10 years before being...
Now I've woke up a bit, I realise: but aren't they used for shaping a sharp bend/corner, rather than for cutting?
It's a long time since I did any "smithing" - and I was never formally taught- I just "saved" a load of tools from an abandoned quarry (before they were buried *in* the...
I've got blacksmiths tools with wooden handles.
(And with metal handles through an eye in the head).
Is a fuller the correct name, though? I would call it a "hot chisel" (as opposed to a cold chisel).
I *think* a fuller has a rounded edge for shaping - as in the "blood groove"...
I bought a 1m diameter ex-diamond edged road saw blade from the scrappie to cut up to make a machete.
Cut it, and it delaminated.
Apparently, they're made of 3 sheets of 2mm(ish) plate - spot welded together. :mad:
Not suggesting the woodblades are: but something for anyone else to bear in...
Me personally, I'd use an angry grinder with a 35G flapdisk to knock off the corner: mark the bevel then *carefully* grind a small patch to within, say, 2mm of the line.
Then extend the bevel along the full edge.
Then maybe, using a finer flapdisk (80G), get another mm closer.
Don't try to get...
No reason (afaik) that a linisher with a large grit belt wouldn't work - it's basically a big belt sander, after all.
You'd just need some sort of table/jig to keep the blade at the correct angle.
Put a 2" belt on it if necessary?
That would depend upon what tools you *do* have.
Get it close with a flap disk/grinding disk on an angry grinder, then finish off with files?
Or buy a belt sander? (not a belt grinder - I've made a few knives with a bosch pbs60 sander).
A tormek grinder would get you a good bevel - eventually...
I'd look at how American homes are clad: usually ply, then vapour/moisture barrier, then a decorative timber: Shiplap? "LogLap"?
Only problem might be there seems to be a bit of a shortage of timber (around here, and mainly fence panels, at least)
Not going to comment on your question, but take a look at the c&g 2391 course.
About 600-800 quid, and means you're qualified to do EICRs.
One of the lads at college last year did 2391 and the 18th edition test,(rather than am2 + nvq route) and he's turning over 1.5k a week doing EICRs +...
