Machinists never make mistakes, only invisible repairs...

654 ratings | 25152 views
In this video since machinists never make mistakes, I'll show you one quick method to save the reputation... lol How to plug a hole with an invisible repair that won't affect the performance of the part. Also doing a brushed finish on the part. This is used in circumstances where you don't need to X-ray certify the parts or where high-pressure air or liquids will be used, this type of fix is generally used in places where it's gonna be a cosmetic repair. Keith Fenner YouTube Channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCDmxnPem-pPfJQATIkfgY2Q Web site: http://turnwrightmachineworks.com/ This hammer is a project from: Philippe Desjardins YouTube Channel: Phil's Projects Robert Corriveau (No YouTube channel) And myself on this channel Hope you enjoy and please subscribe, like and comment.

Are you a machinist or magician lol ,great trick
Pierre's Garage (3 months ago)
Guess that in order to be a half decent machinist, we need to be versatile and creative somehow... ;) Thanks for nice comment, Pierre
Lewis Hartswick (1 year ago)
That has to be high in the center by several tenths at least with that "polishing" technique. :-)
Pierre's Garage (1 year ago)
Here the goal is to make a parts with non critical dimensions, and used mostly to stop a wooden handle from slipping out of the main body, naturally a good machinist will adapt techniques and finishes to the final purpose... ;) Thanks for watching and for yourcomment, Pierre

Hi John, there are lots of tricks to the trade for repairing a part, as long as it respects the integrity of the part.... Thanks for comment, Pierre

tom thompson (1 year ago)
its just a bluff job , not the worst , but without knowing what the part was heading for , id not be doing it , say it was a hydraulic job or the likes ,,,, not good , , a stepped sleve pressed from the inside , then tig welded re faced , even a friction weld , but just to beat in a slug and face it up is not a repair.
Pierre's Garage (1 year ago)
Thanks.... ;)
tom thompson (1 year ago)
your a gent ,,,, keep up the great videos ,,,
Pierre's Garage (1 year ago)
Hi Tom, Don't worry about the final use, it's a cosmetic cap with no pressure or strength required... I totally agree with you, that for a high-pressure situation it would require A: a new part, Or B: like you propose if new part isn't available, the deluxe treatment is REQUIRED in order to ensure that the pressure would not cause any issue...

6 jaw chuck ? What sorcery is this ?
Pierre's Garage (1 year ago)
Hi, 6 jaws chucks are good to grab thinner material or to get a stronger hold on regular stuff. This chuck is also adjustable on it's back plate in order to eliminate the run-out, a little like a 4 jaws chuck would. You can check the series I made quite a while ago on how I adapted a back plate to it... Maybe not the most entertaining videos since they were at the beginning of the channel... Thanks for viewing and for comment, Pierre
John Cochran (1 year ago)
If someone were to do a fluorescent dye penetrant inspection of that part, would the repair show up? I used to do NDI for the Air Force some years back.
Pierre's Garage (1 year ago)
Hi John, This is mostly a cosmetic repair with enough strength to hold by itself, but, I highly doubt that it would pass a dye test, it wouldn't be constant on a big production... Maybe with real high interference and or, heated part on the outer component and deeply frozen inner part, this would have to be tested... ;) Parts would need to have a very smooth surface finish in order to avoid any path on the surfaces. Thanks for your food for brain, Pierre
Si st (1 year ago)
you always know a good machinist buy the fact is can cover up a mistake so none will ever know it happened in my case its hiding it from the boss there is a repair on a mill table I repaired 15 years ago (12mm slot 2mm deep OOPS )  that the boss never knew about and when I told him years later I couldn't find it great video
Pierre's Garage (1 year ago)
Hi Simon, Something, a boss should consider when he deals with a good machinist, a happy life cause he'll never know something happened... lol Hummm... Now wondering about a guy that married a wife who's a machinist... ;) Thanks for viewing and for comment, Pierre

Is that a drill doctor on the bench behind you?
Pierre's Garage (2 years ago)
Hi, yes this is a Drill Doctor, I find it pretty useful to resharpen smaller bits, even more, the solid carbide ones. I find it needs a little getting used to in order to get the best of it, otherwise, the high-end sharpening tools are way out of my reach as far as price is concerned. Thanks for viewing and for comment, Pierre
Marko Nekoizmase (2 years ago)
Nice and neat. And I was wondering ( on other video from you ) why are you taking 0.002mm so serious. You are a perfectionists, that's why :)
kiss peter (1 year ago)
No offense taken :) . I just wondered , how could that be possible . The precision really costs a lot , but we know very well why :) , and the client knows too .
Pierre's Garage (1 year ago)
Hum... I just noticed a mistake in my upper statement it's not .0004 mm but .004 a hell of a difference, the Imperial number is ok though, on production runs a constant 0.01mm is a great score in deed... Just to say that just a little more precision is a lot more $$$$... Excuse my mistake...
kiss peter (1 year ago)
It must be achievable , but only for one offs . At my workplace we have some serius masuring equipment , but it's rarely used , many don't know how to use it . It has a resolution of 0.0002mm , but i simply can't imagine putting 2 different workpieces in the device and getting the same results . The most precision i can get on the cnc lathe that i work on , is mainly +-2 micrometers , but the values always tends to drift a bit (thermal expansion and machine error , insert wear , material composition change , wheater , the planes in the sky , etc) . To me anything under 0.01mm tolerance is a "please take it to somewhere else". Thanks for the reply and have a good day :)
Pierre's Garage (1 year ago)
Hi, like you say it's very difficult to measure accurately, more practical to measure something closer to .0004 mm that is .00015", still a challenge though without the proper measuring tools and references, you can see in some other videos that I own some good tools in the measuring field... Not the ultimate, though.
kiss peter (1 year ago)
0.002mm ? , noone can hold that kind of tolerance , its hard to measure also .... was it not 0.002 inch ?
Alex Behrens (2 years ago)
Why not tig it
Pierre's Garage (2 years ago)
Hi Alex, Tig, in this situation would be much more time and setting up, since this is only a cosmetic repair, that kind of fix is faster an adequate, if you need to fix a part where pressure is involved, Tig or even making a new part would be the solution....

if I be the customer I wouldn't be happy about this botch job what if the application of this part requires strength of a solid 304 piece. this be SCAR from quality to supplier
Pierre's Garage (2 years ago)
Hi Marco, Like explained somewhere in the video, there is no compromise to solidity, it's only a cosmetic repair, and, I'm the customer, the parts are for my own use... Judgement is to be applied in machining parts and if done the customer has to agree.... ;) Thanks for viewing and for comment, Pierre

Tegan Peacock (2 years ago)
sounds like that part is for a order.  that's a good method for repairing something but the customer should get a new part, not a repaired new part.  saving the reputation or ruining it?

Hi, Don't worry it for a cosmetic repair only, like you mean it's important to use some judgment in repairing parts, in this case, and I'm the customer... ;) Thanks for viewing and for comment, Pierre

TheOnlyTominator (2 years ago)
What was the nature of that part? Would such a repair hold up under pressure or other mechanical loads, or is it purely cosmetic?
Pierre's Garage (2 years ago)
This part is a cap for the hammer it's only a cosmetic repair, if you had pressure and be stuck to make an emergency repair you could make a plug with a flange and press it from the inside if it were possible then the flange would resist to a fair amount of pressure...

Stephane Belanger (2 years ago)
Salut Pierre. question pour toi. Ou sont les bons endroits pour de la machineries et outillages? Je suis machiniste de métier de Gatineau. Mais j'ai beaucoup de difficultées à trouver des "bons" deals.
Pierre's Garage (2 years ago)
Bonjour Stephane, Presque tous mes outils viennent de sites d'annonce comme Kijiji ou LesPac, le materiel neuf est souvent hors de prix si on cherche des marques comme Mitutoyo ou Starrett. Il y a un auditeur qui m'a donné une adresse à Montreal pour les outils neufs, il dit y avoir d'excellents prix: Société d’acier et d’outillage Industriels ltée 9750 Meilleur, Montréal, Québec Il y a aussi des marques comme Fowler, InSize... Les prix sont déjà plus abordables et la qualité reste très acceptable. En dernier recours tu peux te dépaner avec des endroits comme Accusize et Shars, évidemment pas le meilleur choix pour des tolerances extrèmes... Même chose pour la machinerie, les petites annonces, mais, là il faut être patient et bien isnpecter lors de la visite avant d'acheter, il y a peut'être 2 suggestions pour les machines, à Becancour il y a un M. Provencher qui vend de l'usager qu'il retape et à l'ouest de Montreal il y a Machinerie Seguin pour le neuf et l'usager. Si tu as besoin de plus d'info, tu peux me contacter à: [email protected] J'espère que ça puisse t'aider, Pierre

The Romans said it first: "errare humanum est." I suppose the aliens from Alpha Centauri do not. Myself I make them and try to avoid making them twice. This is called "learning" :) Nice fix BTW.

It's more like: "If you make them, make it so no one knows about it"... This is absolutely not alien....!!! lol Right about learning from our mistakes to avoid repetition... ;) Thanks for comment, Pierre
Jim Milne (2 years ago)
Unfortunately, my own mistakes are invisible to me, which is comforting because my "sin covering eye" enables me to be blissfully unaware of all inaccuracies and mistakes. The problem first arises when the customer sees "sin" everywhere and points it out to me, unsparingly. Perhaps you have an invisible repair for me for this problem?! Good video as usual. Cool stuff to add to my bag of tricks.
Pierre's Garage (2 years ago)
Hi Jim, Like you say, delivering a part to a customer that has to do all the quality control and discover tons of errors is quite a "sin"... The only invisible repair for this is to get customers with lower expectations... lol Cheers, Pierre

Do you like your Drill Doctor?
Pierre's Garage (2 years ago)
Hi, This model is just a notch above the base model and when in special it cost about 75$, at that price it does a decent job, there is a learning curve in order to get the best from it, I find it does pretty good on smaller bits, it can sharpen up to 1/2" with the supplied holder, there is an optional holder that allows sharpening up to 3/4" bits. Also it does great for solid carbide drill bits cause it uses a diamond wheel, this helps to pay for itself, carbide bits tend to loose some chips in the end and a little refresh helps. Bottom line it's an all right tool to have if you can learn the basics... ;) (Even better if you get it on special)
Jeffrey Vastine (2 years ago)
Nice Pierre, a simple and easy fix which should be a helpful tip for the hobbyist. Now unless you had measured wrong or had misread a drawing or measuring device I do not think that you made a mistake as it was more than likely an attention issue, which tends to become more of an issue as we get older. Anyway, be well my friend and godspeed with all of the holiday projects! Peace!
Pierre's Garage (2 years ago)
Hi Jeffrey, I was just a little too bold and wanted to get as much depth as possible for the tap, since I didn't have a bottoming unit, got repaired easy. Getting older brings lots of changes, mainly in the slowing of activities... lol Thanks for support and Happy Holidays to you and your family, Pierre

That drill was in and out *without a trace*! Nice tip Pierre, I'll keep it in mind :) I'm also going to try switching to rougher sand paper when I start to polish stainless after seeing how quickly you did that.
Doohan22 (2 years ago)
Pierre's Garage great, I'll have a look around. The headlights start to yellow here after 3 months! Thanks :)
Pierre's Garage (2 years ago)
If you don't use the UVprotector the gloss won't last more than a year, even much less... Look out on Google for UV protective lacquers and check if they're compatible with the plastics from the headlight on cars, every country has something available of the shelves in automotive stores.
Patrick Rebecca Doohan (2 years ago)
That's exactly what I used it for last, polishing the car headlights. Do you use a product to prevent the plastic from yellowing? I hadn't thought of that, we have huge UV problems here in my part of New Zealand.
Pierre's Garage (2 years ago)
I've seen that the product is available just about everywhere, I'll try it next chance I get, seems like it could also work on plastics, I'd use it to re-polish lenses for car headlights, then just add a clear lacquer that resists UV. Thanks for the application notes... ;)
Doohan22 (2 years ago)
Pierre's Garage (Patrick here again, different account) I would use autosol on plastic injection moulds that made clear lenses/screen covers for small hand held devices (specifically agricultural electric fence testing units) When polishing if you missed a tiny scratch with the 1200 grit or finer the autosol would show it up very quickly. Autosol added to wet and dry paper instead of water also produces a really nice finish on turned parts. If you let it dry off a smidgen and apply pressure it almost burnishes the surface. Then there is the quality of the P20 tool steel to deal with , sometimes you could spend the most part of a day polishing only to find the materials grain leaves a slight pitted surface that can't be polished out. Such is the life of a toolmaker!

You could use a plug with a small shoulder and press in from the inside if it needed to withstand a bit of pressure (assuming you had enough inside diameter to work with)?

Hi Chris, I wouldn't use this for pressure vessels, though.... At least I wouldn't stand too close mostly if the plug is invisible, or, there are many of those... lol For noncritical places it's perfect... Cheers, Pierre
