Happy holidays :)

Happy holidays everyone! 

I, personally, have one of the worst days yet when it comes to pain.

I hope I’ll feel better by Christmas. 

Not much done, I sorted amongst the parts for the CNC build I’ve collected over the last 2 or 3 years. I went slow and easy but after about 45min I had soaked through my t-shirt, sweat was dripping from my head and I was out of breath. All from the pain. 

I threw in the towel for the next couple of days. Just can’t push through the pain and tbh, I’d rather save myself to spend time with my daughter. 

Anyway, I got sidetracked, I just wanted to wish you all happy holidays.

Not diy

I thought I’d explain why there’s not that many recent updates. 

I was a bodybuilder for many years. This has left it’s marks on my body. I have one herniated disc in my neck that’s operated and alot less of a problem now. BUT I also have three other herniated discs in the lower back and upper back. These are giving me problems, alot of problems. 

I am in pain 24/7, I have areas where I have a lack of sensation (feeling or whatever it’s called in English) and I have areas that go numb like if they where “asleep” , I think maybe you call it for example dead leg (if your leg falls asleep).

This has been going on for years, as a very sad example, I haven’t been able to hold my 14month daughter for more than a few minutes since she was born. This is just heartbreaking to me. 

Lately the pain has gotten worse and I’m exhausted from fighting to get help from the once very good Swedish healthcare system. 

I’m not trying to get anyone to feel sorry for me. I’m just trying to explain the lack of new content.

Upcoming review. 

I had 2 parts 3D-printed for me via 3dhubs.

The first of these should arrive tomorrow or the day after tomorrow. 

That part is of my own design using onshape and I a SFU1204 ballnut mount/bracket. 

The other part should with any luck arrive before the weekend and is a design 2off thingiverse and that is a drill guide to make 90° straight holes in for example alu-sheet.  

I used the same 3dhub member for both parts to make for a more accurate review. 

For anyone reading this that lives in Sweden, this is the members site/hub.

He’s very quick to repond and has excellent communication. So let’s hope the parts are good.

Drill press modifications 

As I don’t own a real drill press, I got a stand to review. They are useless *end of review*.

I decided to try getting it sturdy enough to atleast manage straight holes through 5mm thick aluminum/aluminium. 

I figured filling the very light and flimsy foot of the stand (the main issue was the foot bending and the entire thing leaning forwards) with plastic padding steel epoxy. 

To get more stability out of that, I drilled and put some long M3 screws through the foot from the top side. 

Since I have a fever, I haven’t been able to test if/how much of a difference the modifications made. 

I hope I’ll be able to use it for something now.  I did spend about $17 on epoxy and a bit of time on this thing. 

My take on this drill press stand. Don’t buy one. Just don’t. Save to get a bench top drillpress or give the money to charity, atleast you won’t be wasting your money that way.
