Cool projects that you have done.

Yes, it can be legal to make a silencer. For everything Form-1, from silencer designs that are easily made, to filing forms with the BATF, to 3D modeling. Remember, you must have an approved BATF Form-1 to make a silencer. All NFA laws apply.

Cool projects that you have done.

Post by Baffled » Mon Jan 20, 2014 7:36 pm

i certainly would not be wasting my time on this board looking for engineering or design help. for that i turn to other sources, but i do appreciate the offering.
I can't believe I'm about to get into a dick measuring contest.

Yeah, I know nothing of engineering, design, or materials.

Donated the head design, which is unique, to the model engineering community.

The first functioning model turboprop in the Western Hemisphere:

Designed the digital fuel control system. Donated the source code and schematics to the community.

Miniature .22LR belt fed machine gun, unique.

My tool and cutter grinder from some scrap aluminum I had lying around:

^^This is from one guy who apparently knows nothing of design or engineering. We have dozens, hundreds here, who know more about silencer design, machining, CAD, fluid dynamics/analysis, in the heads of their dicks than you do in your bloated brain.

Now that I've shown you mine, why don't you show me yours? Bitch.

Since some liked the images that Baffled posted, I split them out into a new topic as a venue to show your machining, or other skill, prowess. so post away.

I'm not a engineer but a machinist that returned to school to get a degree in gunsmithing.
This I built for a customer its a 5.56 wet suppressor.
Image
This is my slot baffle or face of a high pressure baffle.Used with much success in up to 50BMG class rifles.
Image
A customer wished a everything can .22LR 5.56 243 270 300BLK .308 I made multiple threaded mounts to accommodate the various rifles.It comes apart for cleaning as well.
Image
Though very simple this is a steam engine it has but three moving parts and runs at over 12,000 rpm.I made it as a apprentice machinist.

I for one am not BAFFLED as to why I respect you and your
talent! I marvel at the artistry in metal shown here, especially your miniature belt-fed .22.

Holy Shiny Metal Porn, Batman! :)

Total admiration ineffable.

Many thanks again for starting the morning with a smile.

Here's a barrel chamber flush system I was working on until real-life got too busy. Hopefully I will have time to finish it soon.

Where the real magic happens.

There is not a lot of visual porn with my truly professional creations. I am a compounding pharmacist and there is actually some art that goes with the science, it just not as visually stimulating as something machined. I'm consistently inventing things here that may have never been done, and am very proud of that.

This is my laboratory where the truly mad science happens!

My usual line of work involves maximizing both the quantity and quality of sound from a source, this source being strings of various sizes. Primarily doublebass strings, but violin, viola and 'cello strings as well. So perhaps it's a bit ironic that I happen to find suppressing sound fascinating... but two sides of the same coin I suppose. This is a bass I made and sold a few years ago. Working on another as a commission now.

Well I have nothing even slightly as cool as any of the above creations, but I made this years and years ago when I got my first Bouncing job. It's a brass and iron knuckleduster that I tried to get an ancient/Roman vibe from, and yes, it has some violence attached to it.

BTW, it is long retired from any drama... just like myself.

Very nice stuff posted so far!

My latest is a shameless copy of Tom Lipton's (Oxtools on YouTube) mini pallet system. Just finished it today - should be very handy. The actual pallet is 6"x8"x2.5" aluminum with 75 10-32 tapped holes on 1" centers. Fits in the mill vise. Made a quick jig to speed up beveling the nose of the clamps.

The last two pics are a junker Ruger barrel clamped just to show concept.

These are just some snap shots with some people in the pics, but this is a public sculpture I did with a friend of mine in Columbia MO. About 1300 pounds of bronze if I remember correctly. Took us about a year from clay model to finished bronze.

This isn't my pic but I just found it on the net....this is a piece I did for Marshall MO.

Daviscustom, masterful execution of edged blades!
Blade man personified. My admiration.

I hope others can appreciate the extent of your skills and design sense,
such as in the 'wire wrap' handle,
the perfect balance between the handle, guard, blade, etc.

In particular the underplayed 'broad blade', classic.

You might find images of the late Tom Clinton knives
intriguing. [ e.g., Mine with desert ironwood handle. ]
He was author of "Knives of the U.S. Special Forces".

Most impressive. Thank you for the visual treat.

Best.
