6" thick flame cut steel that will be a hydraulic rod clevis, being cut and machined to size on the G&E metal shaper. This was another good learning job for me on the shaper, from indicating, getting a block square, to trying different tool grinds. This is 1 of a 3 video series.

This video shows me making a Hemingway Kits Knurling Tool. This is the final Part 3 covering the making the remaining components. Undertaking this project really helped me improve my machining skills and got me out of my comfort zone. I am absolutely delighted with the result - I hope you like it too! Part 1 can be viewed at: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wtLPtkuw7Vk Part 2 can be viewed at: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hn92gcyDwXY I used both my Sieg SX2P mini mill and my SC3 mini lathe to make this tool.

In this video i'm restoring a Beverly Shear model B1 My friend found this Beverly Shear in the steel waste at the recycling station. When I first saw this Beverly Shear I had no idea why it has such an unique shape. After a bit of research I quickly found out that this is a very well known tool. So I decided to restore it and bought it for $30. The Beverly Shear is a tool to cut sheet, because of it's unique shape it enables you to cut curved shapes and that's what makes the Beverly Shear so special. The Beverly Shear was invented by Kurt Nebel in 1931 in Chicago. There are 3 different sizes available: model B1, model B2 and model B3 which is the biggest one. They have made some changes over the years, but since 1947 the shears have remained virtually unchainged. For the colour i decided to use a darker grey than the original and choosed anthracide, I also added two washers. To make the parts black I used a bluing liquid called „Birchwood Casey - Super Blue“ and it worked very well. It's easy to hanlde and the big advantage over heating and quenching in oil is that you can do it without heating the parts up. So you won't change the structure of the steel and you can use it on hardened parts as well. Because I have no tools and experience in sharpening such blades, I decided to ask my friend Philipp Elsener from Elsener Messerschmied to do it. He's a professional knifemaker here in Rapperswil Switzerland. Check out his website, linked below. Overall I'm very happy how the Beverly Shear came out and as it is such a unique tool I'll keep it for myself. I hope you like my work and the video.
