This is the depth stop from a cheap arbor press. It appears to be made of cast iron. Somebody broke it and I was going to braze it back together.
I noticed that the edges of the break were black, I thought that was kind of odd. But when I gouged the metal with a file, it had the normal silvery iron color.
As soon as I started heating it to braze it, oil started to spread across the surface. As I kept heating it, the whole part got covered in thick oil and it started dripping onto the vise.
What the hell? Is this cast iron somehow impregnated with oil? This is not an oilite bearing. I've never before seen cast iron that starts pouring oil out of it when heated. I definitely can't braze it, or glue it, or anything.
I have no clue what this is. Enlighten me, if you can.

>> No.1770855

Not an expert but maybe its not cast iron but made of sintered metal like cheap gears are. Basically an iron version of an oilite bearing. You can use pretty much any metal in the sintering process and its cheap, which kind of fits with harbour freitht.

that's what I first thought when the oil started spreading across the surface. But far more oil dripped from it than could fit in those tapped holes even if they were full of oil. it wasn't at all oily to the touch before I started heating it.

I doubt it, for one it really isn't a bearing surface. It's a loose fit until the set screws are tightened. there's no reason for this to be an oilite material.
It could be a sintered metal, maybe soaked up so much oil as a side effect of that process, but then why are there such big corner reliefs on the inside, if the whole part was sintered they wouldn't need to mill the inside.

Maybe tomorrow I'll keep heating it and see how much oil comes out.

>> No.1770896

The corner reliefs aren't from milling. They're to prevent cracking of the shitty material.

If you have a sump basket, it's pretty easy as long as you put a check valve in line and the hose in the sump basket and the other hose outside (I dont know your manual set up so I'm saying goes instead of pipe). Though I would stick with sn automatic sump with a built in float.

yo /diy/, can you help me make a gut call?

I'm living in Germany and I'm in my 30s. I inherited a house, worth around 150k but it needs lots of fixing (around another 150k worth of fixing cost for heating, windows, bathroom, roof, etc including working hours) - condition of the house is below average german standard. Doesn't look that pretty, no neat architecture, good neighbourhood. I could do some of the fixings alone, which could probably save 20k.

Question now is: Do I invest the 150k and make it my home - or do I sell it right now and build a new one from scratch (which will probably cost around 250k to build)

So I finally got a place to store my AV equipment
It's perfect in every way, and it cost me only 15$
It's made out of sturdy metal with hardened glass shelves
It was originally taller but I cut out the top shelf and made a wall shelf out of it
But there is one VERY frustrating issue with it...
It is too narrow between the side pillars...
To fit any of my vcrs/sfx generators...
By one tenth...
So if any of you have any idea of what could I do except of throwing it furiously out of my window I'd REEEEALLY appreciate it

And no, it doesn't flex

I thought of taking one of the steel beans out somehow (idk how) and screwing it back in through some distancing plate

But do you have any other ideas? Or know how to do it?

You've got structure on the the shelf side.

Still finalizing the wood fired heater so this thread will only be about the hot tub part.

I have a decent sized pond and would like a 12 person hot tub next to it. I'm unsure how to affordably filter it because it will mostly be a weekend thing and then drained. Unless i can develop some sort of giant solar sponge filter or something.

The giant round wooden tubs seen nice but by the time i buy the straps and wood AND THEN do all of the work it looks like it would be a pain in the ass and expensive.

I've been as far as to consider renting a mini excavator and just digging a big hole. Place the dirt around the top to help with height and then carve out seating by hand. Maybe throw heavy construction plastic in it and slowly fill to cram the makeshift liner into place?

I may have acess to a giant metal tank without a lid for like $100. The problem is that it's an old tank that had saltwater in it and it has a few holes. I have a stick welder and thought maybe i could weld patch plates in but it's kind of a long shot. It would be badass though. It's about 20 feet wide and 5 feet tall. A buddy said he would help modify an old propane tank for a massive wood heater that will basically just take any chunck of wood 2 people can throw in it. We have a bunch of old pipe and could idle a 3" water pump to circulate water through the goofy hillbilly heater.

Also considering just a smaller 4 person tub to set next to the house and heat with natural gas. Maybe from wood or old logs and cement?

Just fishing for advice and ideas if anyone has any. Especially those with experience doing something like this.

Sweet. I got beer and a backhoe and a pipeline welder for 2 days though.

My idea is an easy feed wood fire from a half moon party deck. The welders get the stove done. We rig up rando pumps, and we dig what we need before setting shit down and i start confiscating CAT keys...

>> No.1770885

Slightly different idea, but would it be possible to plumb copper pipes to snake through an outdoor fire, maybe through masonary that heats up, and then feed into a bath? So you just turn on a cold hose tap and it then feeds hot water into your bath?
Then have a drain?
You could have the pipe that feeds it look really cool and plumb a valve on the drain so it's constantly filling and draining.

I'd also be more keen on trying to find a shit condition nice old cast iron claw foot bathtub and restoring it. Maybe get a few. And so you've got your nice outdoor fireplace with seating and shit around it and then a couple people can sit in the bath and you can fill/drain it each time so it's not gross and it's not enormous so it doesn't take forever to fill.

>> No.1770898

Just make sure you build it in a way so that you can easily clean the exhaust path, and have tight control over the temperature.

>> No.1770940

That's actually pretty common.
Tub flows from low point to coil in the fire before back to the tub. Heating the coil causes the water to circulate. Can regulate heat by playing with the fire or adding more cold water.

Anyone built small cabins in the mountains? Planning a small 120 sq ft hiking/hunting/weekend cabin like pic related and the leveled spot on the property seems to rest on a sizeable chunk of granite. For a small cabin, the foundation could be anchored into the granite, or concrete piers could also be used to float the foundation on the surface. Any advantage to one over the other?

I guess I'd want some separation between the floor and beam for melting snow, rain, etc. I should mention the parcel is sloped pretty aggressively. The road is 20 feet below the "pad" and the adjoining parcel is about 50 feet higher. So there will be some water runoff during the melt.

>> No.1770907

Oh yeah well in that case Piers make sense. I would use cinder blocks. I would attach them by embedding rebar into the granite 8 inches. I would use anchoring cement to do that. Then place the blocks over them and fill with concrete. Obviously you'd want your first course level.

Legal? I don't know of anywhere it's illegal to sell piston rings. Maybe Greta's home town? As for the rings, are you 100% sure they are identical? Maybe one of them has a slight taper which would make it the scraper / backup compression ring. Why don't you have an oil control ring? 2 stroke thing?
