Figured I’d mess around and try out a simple one for a tube notch. This one would work for a 90° cope on 1.75” OD tubing. Pretty much any angle or configuration (3 intersecting tubes etc) could be modeled in to the jig and printed out, if ever cutting more than one or two of the copes I would think it could make it worth it.
I think a set of these (90°, 45°, 60°, 30° etc) would possibly even be appealing as something to make and sell. It would even be pretty easy to inscribe text into the side of the pattern, like tube size and notch angle.
Wide square. Printed out of ASA so it has a lot better properties for being able to be used/left outside. Shouldn’t warp with heat from the sun and should be UV stable. Shouldn’t turn all white, chalky and brittle like PLA when left in UV and elements.
Wanted to repaint the wheels that came on my Focus, without too much investment.
I’m really not a fan of painting over old loose paint, so a cheap spot blaster and some glass bead media from Amazon.
One wheel is about 1/2 a box of this material, which is about 4-5 hoppers full of the spot blaster. In other words each wheel took about $10 of media and maybe 30 minutes? No need to mask off the rubber for blasting of course.
