Following a successful Part 1, we will show you more measuring tools, followed by some milling and lathe operations.
Note that our post is written as a general intro for our hobby community, we are using our own tools from Binary Taskforce R&D lab for simplicity reason. Hope our write up can provide assistance to you in the future for your RC modeling and hobby needs. Please visit our Flickr page for larger photos.
Various tools and machinery can be found in our Binary Taskforce (Research and Development) lab, we use these equipment on a daily basis for company research, prototyping and product designs. As RC model and hobbies are getting more advanced, many of these tools are now being used in the RC field, we see a lot of them being used and discussed in RC forums and web sites.
For helping those new to the RC model hobby, we decided to write up a quick introduction and basic how-to on these tools. This is our way to contribute, we hope you find it useful.
Previously mentioned from another post, we have a bench sized mini-mill for quick prototyping and parts creation. Back then we purchased some scales and setup DRO on this milling machine but never have a chance to document the process for sharing.
Yeah!! Our subscription to Flickr and WordPress now allow us to blog about the process with pictures. Follow link to Flickr Photo set of Mini-mill DRO pictures
The bench top milling machine we used in R&D is a Harbor Freight Two-Speed Variable Bench Mill/Drill Machine, purchased many years ago and went through many customization throughout the years of usage.
