Sputnik Jig Setup

Experimenting with slotting tubing for dropouts on Sheldon Horizontal Mill.  Vise allows pass through for stays and keeps various diameters centered on slotting saw.  For tapered tubes the vise can be tilted to compensate and a round wire on the top of vee block makes for rigid setup.

Another view of slotting setup.  Cut a bunch of straight 4130 to dial it in.  

Installing Gradle on OSX via HomeBrew

Recent selenium project required use of Gradle.  Quickest way to install was via HomeBrew.  No rocket science but I find if I don’t write this stuff down I lose it quickly.

Install HomeBrew if you don’t have it installed already: goto http://brew.sh/

[code language=”bash” gutter=”false”]/usr/bin/ruby -e "$(curl -fsSL https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Homebrew/install/master/install)"
[/code]

Use HomeBrew to install gradle

[code language=”bash” gutter=”false”] brew install gradle [/code]

Two Diamond M22 Horizontal Mills.  Picked up this morning and got them both into the shop.  Trip was thankfully uneventful!  One is more complete than the other…missing overarm bracket and one crank.  Saved from county school system many years ago…very little wear and should clean up nice.

1000lb each

Made in LA..neat to find them on East coast.
