Neighborhood that I live in if I did the 22 shorts I would be getting the police called on me.   Shot off my Cannon one day and had about 6 people in the yards in less than two min  with pones in hand.   It only shoots mouse balls.   (the old rubber coated ball out of the old computer mouse)  But all I Have run through it is tin foil wads.   Do not have any place where I could put the real ammo in it to shot it.   

Back to the point,   I need to do something about them squirrels may have to invest in a pellet gun of some type.

.22 C.B.'s, if you can find them. A little louder than an air rifle.

When the tree rats get too bad  I break out the paint ball gun. And put the ammo in the freezer.
Then I take the screen out of the office window and wait.The frozen paint balls don't break so I get to use them again.
 I would not mind if they only got a pice or two. But when the rotten gluttons take one bite out of everything the war is on.

My kid has a whole arsenal of full auto AEG and HPA airsoft guns.  Lays down intense rate of fire with pea sized plasic pellets that hurt like a mofo even thru clothing at 15-20yards. 
Squirrels be like owwwwweeee.

Some of those kids take airsoft to another level, and tend to be damn good. I've seen some videos. Lots of rules, and those who don't follow them tend to pay, dearly. I'd say it looks like fun, but dying every 18 seconds cause I'm slow and fat, doesn't sound entertaining. Lol.

Work Around

So I almost had to dig out one of my four jaw chucks. I really donít what to do that. Just the thought of handling my heavy chucks. But wait, I thought of a work around! I need to repair an eccentric lobe on a part. The lobe is very worn and needs restoration. Could make a new part but Iím thinking just turn down the lobe and Loctite on a steel collar. To turn down the lobe I could just offset the thing in a 3-jaw with a shim(s) but that could leave jaw marks. So I put it in an ER32 hex collet block. This will also make shimming and off-set locating easier when using the collet block. I have tried math for proper shimming on similar jobs before and my math is not perfect. So I have learned to just hit and miss. I picked out some shims and was dead on second try! Turned down the bad area on the eccentric lobe. Made a steel collar to bring back the lobe to original OD size. And sheís as good as new. Maybe took about 1 hour of hobby shop time to fix it. I think if I went with the 4-jaw chuck, I would still be working on it LOL.

Well, big giant aluminum frame is complete,l and ready to go out the door. Took an extra week due to various delays, but customer was very accommodating.
All that's left is a giant pile of cut offs that he's taking back with him, but I get to keep the garbage pale of chips... Oh hooray...

Can't say I really learned much on this one... Well, maybe, don't try to weld thick aluminum myself... Just call a pro the first time.
As much as I'm glad I took the job and it got me another machine, I don't think I'll want to take another job similar to this. Just too damn big - physically... Or, at least stick to my guns the first time and not let the customer talk me down from subbing out the appropriate water jet work, to doing all cutting in house.
I hope he's satisfied with my work. This one took a lot outta me. Lol.

Lol, ya sorry. Was told no photos. Had to sign a legal document. He has patented his product, but can't patent a process, right? Has to keep his manufacturing process under wraps.

He makes magnetic ceramic tiles! For floors or walls. One initial install, then you can change the tiles as your mood desires. Incredible idea.

A pair of adjustment shafts for Marc's wood chipper. My understanding is these are what adjusts the big plate that hold the anvil. I haven't seen it. What I got was one of these shafts cut in 3 pieces, rusted beyond recognition, and with a broken rusted bolt stuck in one of the "threaded" holes.
All the dimensions seemed to be nominal (no weirdo decimal sizes, 1" bar, 3/8" bolts, 3/4" round slot, holes 1.5" apart, 3/4 fine thread, etc etc ) so it was easy to copy.
Fun little job. I wouldn't mind more stuff like this - only, paid work, instead of bossman favours. Lol.

1144. It's what I had on hand in 1". I would like to harden them, but I know Marc won't want to wait.

Don't harden them!!!  1144 is a good choice.  Do them again, try to find some 4140 prehard to make them out of.
