Making a bolt with ZIGZAG threads - SO STRANGE! - Lost PLA metal casting

čas přidán 11. 11. 2021
In this video I will be making a bolt with unique zigzag threads. I started this project by 3d printing models in a plastic called PLA. Then I coated the models 10 times with a ceramic material called Suspendaslurry. After the ceramic shells were completely dry I placed them in my kiln and melted out the PLA plastic. At 1500 degrees Fahrenheit the ceramic shells became vitrified, turning into a ceramic that can withstand the heat of molten bronze. I melted the bronze in my homemade keg foundry furnace and then poured the liquid metal into the ceramic shell molds. This is similar to the lost wax casting process.

  • Hey! I hope you like the video! Have a great weekend everyone! 🍻

    • Shut up and take my money!

    • Robinson Foundry Awesome Work! I am Very interested...Do you have any available for purchase? Please lemme know to discuss and make arrangements. Best-

    • @James Middleton 55

    • Bro. This is super impressive. I'm not into any of this stuff, and it's super interesting now.

    • @Crazy Traveler Some fucking idiot has stopped the Tool Industry from making a 6 point end wrench the only time I have ever seen a 12 point nut or bolt is when you would buy A.R.P. Nuts and Bolts for race engines You go to your local hardware store and go to the Nut or Bolt section you will find more 6 sided Nuts and Bolts than anything ... no matter if it's Metric or S.A.E.

  • This is so cool its hard to put into words. It would be cool if you started a Kickstarter to sell factory mechined desk toy versions

    • I'd buy that. Great desk toy

    • @Alex M No not at all

    • @BobbySTEM it always amazes me how the guys that claim to do most difficult work and still be underpaid don’t move to easier, better paid jobs if it’s so simple, instead of complaining about it

    • Fuck kickstarter

    • Hello hated member of the poketuber community

  • you should definitely make two of these with the ends cast together so that you can just flip it over and the nuts flow down to the other bolt. like an hourglass! love your videos and designs

    • Hv

    • Make it take 30 seconds exactly or something similar where you could actually use it to measure time for something. Great project!

    • Yezzzzzzz!!!!!

    • @B0redZer0 yeh, it would have to separate in some way as you couldn’t cast the bolt with the nuts on, or you could just weld another head onto it and clean it up to make it appear a single piece

    • The 10 second bolt timer. Lmao

  • That was amazing! The amount of detailing and cleaning, simply awesome!

  • I thought this is absolutely amazingly creative. My goodness man, I am amazed at how this turned out.

  • Very cool! I think you're gonna be pretty big on YT... this video was great! Not too long, not too short... you didn't drown us in overly complicated technical details, but provided just enough information to keep it interesting. You did great with audio and video as well. Overall, (IMO) this is excellent content, and I loved it!

  • amazing how well the castings turned out

    • What happens if you dip your junk in the slurry

    • Stop liking these comments it's a comment stealing bot with no actual content other than 1 video

    • Yes, same here, it will be underrated if we call them perfect castings...🤭

    • @Jawad Yes it’s casting however it’s like buying powder in a packet adding some water or milk, stirring it, bring it to boil and you have made sauce. Yes it is sauce but is it cooking art or skills?

    • @allabout perspective except it is still casting regardless of what you think it is

  • Wow! A lot of time and amazing work went into that. I'm even more impressed that you have the tools and know-how to do that sort of fabrication.

  • This guy is a casting master! I've seen so many videos of people trying to cast metal and it's so freaking hard, you nailed your technique on this

  • Awesome toy!!! Sadly, some of us don't know anything about 3D printing, much less have the patience to do all the work we just watched. Would be cool if there was some website selling the finished metal version of this thing, ready to be played with right out of the box. Cool toy, two thumbs up!!! 😎👍👍

    • I'm not amazed by the casting part, it's like buying some powder in a supermarket add some milk or water and claiming that you have made a sauce. I used to cast in sand, sometimes small simple bells for a carillon other times big sculptures that were made up of 40-50 different parts of sand blocks that were assembled into a 3-dimensional puzzle with a smaller version inside so that the statue is hollow when finished.

  • Absolutely fabulous video, I totally geeked out. The time spent to make this happen is completely compensated for by the number of views, excellent content and beautiful results.

  • Muito bom

    • @Julian Hernandez I believe there are features to change the language of audio that comes out if the video has them. I'm sure some people also can understand English, but prefer/only understand, their native language. Isn't it so cool that we can watch the same video not just with people who speak our language, but actually tho whole world??

    • Bom Bom Bom

    • @Julian Hernandez youtube have a tool that automatically creates captions and translate them so people can understand, not all videos have this feature but I believe that a great number of people use it. Btw, I don’t have english as my country’s official languages, but I completely understand it and youtube is my home.

  • Crazy video man, totally loved the process. It would be great if you could screw a bolt head on the other end as well. If you make it probably thinner and longer, It'll may work like a hourglass or minute counter, only if you figure out the time it takes for a threaded bolt to actually go up or down with gravity.

  • this makes me want to build and buy all the stuff I need to make my own polished metal version lol absolutely beautiful work

  • That is great!!! Very practical, I cant wait to use these!!!!!! The very thought of, especially when your hand is in a tight spot with low visability, working this bolt out intrigues me. It's right up there with using a p38 and using an electric can opener to hold the can steady...Bravo

  • This is amazing to see and watch! What do you do for a living that requires all this kit! Keep them coming because they’re really good videos to watch and the end product was very satisfying.

  • I'd love to see a version with a bolt head on both ends, so you could just turn it back and forth and never have to worry about losing a nut. It would be a great desk toy for sure!

    • @e come to think about it, what’s the real world application of anything? We’re all going to die, our species is condemned to get extinct, our whole solar system will eventually be swallowed by the very sun that for so long provided it with the fuel for life, and none of all our realizations will have made any difference whatsoever

    • @marlon mohninger You are asking as if 13 million views went into watching something "useful". LOL

    • Are there even men out there who aren't afraid to loose a nut?

    • @e I think fidget spinners have their own community of tricksters. Similar to pen spinning but a little more user friendly so that basically anyone can try and do tricks with it, and as of my experience is also kind of relaxing just to spin it which makes it useful anyway. But yeah you can do tricks with basically anything to be honest.

    • @Nguyễn Thái Hoà take the nuts hehehehehe. I don't have maturity enough

  • never thought about bolt threads can be designed like this way. I don't know what it could be used for, but it is a very interesting thing to know. thank you

  • I'd buy one in a heartbeat. Great job and excellent craftsmanship!

  • I'm totally Amazed how well that turned out!

  • This was soooo satisfying. Live the work! Can't wait to see more!

  • I'm a physics teacher and the first thought I had watching your end products was just how good of a demonstration it is of rotational momentum. Nice work. I doubt you would get a similar effect with your plastic 3D printed versions since they have such low mass. Although, I suppose glueing some rods to the nuts would add enough rotational inertia to make it happen.

    • Stop playing jamungee , These are forged from the living mountains of Hades , Maybe buy a ticket to the circus Dabling with Petro chemicals Which is plastic , Steel you persist Plastic not fantastic

    • @Seven Inches of Throbbing Pink Jesus reeeeeeeeeeeeeeee

    • The 3Dprinted plastic works but you loose the magic and satisfying ting as the nuts change Direction. Also loose the inertia jogging the Bolt back and forth as the nuts change direction. You could put the plastic bolt first on a Low friction Bearing or surface it would Probably still Toggle back forth from the nuts momentum. Lovely invention to play with for the curious mind. Great physics lesson tool I could imagine.

    • Sir sir sir kay mahnto sir

    • hs:cs-tv.org/tv/video-KZYQTY5LZJ0n.html

  • Love how you get down to the nuts & bolts with this project

  • This is one of the coolest things I have ever seen made from scratch you are gifted! All the best 👍 continue doing grate things

  • When I clicked on this video, I did not know it would be as enjoyable as it was. This was an awesome video and a great idea I did see one of the comments that had mentioned something about a double-ended bolt with a nuts sealed if you will in the center. This way, you can just turn the bolt upside down or downside up and have them nuts spinning.

  • This guy has the most amazing tools and knowledge of his craft!

  • There are some pretty impressive crafting skills on display here. Casting metal parts in your own back yard is no small achievement. And the results are more detailed and flawless than any manufactured casting I've ever seen. So yeah, my hat's off to you. Fantastic work.

  • I think some sort of curved bolt in a U-shape with the infinite threads would work like a pendulum so the nut can swing back and forth. That would be awsome!

  • Really cool project and I'm amazed by your effort!

  • What a stunning project, this is really wonderful to see

  • Amazing quality on the finished product. Never mind selling 3d printed version, i’d be more interested in the cast version👍🏻

    • Agreed. Sell cast versions and I'll buy.

    • Definitely.. I want one!!

    • I’d say the process is too time consuming and extensive for him to make profit with it

  • Very cool! Thanks for the video! I would definitely want one and be interested in purchasing!

  • Absolutely incredibly kick ass! Editing, narration, camera work, information provided, and narration is top knock! Felt like I was watching an episode of how it's made" on the history Channel! Truth

  • Amazing. I have no words. This is the literally the coolest thing I’ve ever seen!!

  • There's no chance if I tried this the casts would come out remotely right. I feel like there's a certain degree of luck along with the skill and knowledge.

  • Damn the results were even better than expected! The amount of detail preserved is insane. It's be really cool to see this being done with a resin 3D printer and some giant super detailed model!

  • The possibilities with the printer are really incredible. I remember when I first heard about their existence, I thought it was a fad. Hiw wrong I was.

    • А нахуя он это сделал?

  • I’d buy this, especially a metal version , it looks awesome

  • Muito bom cara :D

  • That's was really fantastic. It turned out incredibly precise

  • Amazing how well your castings turned out. The sharp edges especially, totally didn't expect that.

    • Helps by preheating your molds

  • This got me wondering. How would you make a bolt and nut combo where the bolt slows down as it threads on? Change in friction? Have the thread gauge change slightly? 🤔

  • this is super cool, I love things like that. I would be interested in printing this myself. Is there any way I could get the files from you?

  • What would these go for if you were to sell them? The effect might be more dramatic if you employed a nut the same thickness as the head of the bolt. Even if it retained the same amount of thread as in the thin versions. The extra weight might remove the transition stalling.

    • No the difference would probably be in how much more the bolt spins every time the nut changes direction. Most of the nut's velocity is going outwards, not downwards because of how much it's spinning.

  • I think these are great, well done for making this and showing us 👏🏽👏🏽👍🏽👍🏽

  • I love how it's so smooth that gravity is enough to thread the nut on. I wonder what the fastest angular velocity you could achieve would be - maybe a variable pitch thread? Starts out steep to get some speed an initial rotation, and ends in a very shallow pitch to ramp up the rotations.

    • @Dolan Kang yeah or spring loaded ballbearings...

    • @Dolan Kang you can probably get away with it using the same trick here. Instead of a threaded nut it just was 3 teeth.

    • There's no such thing as a variable-pitch thread. How would you have a variable pitch nut to coincide?

    • @DieselDabz710 If you're asking if this solves world hunger, or will be the next big innovation in electric power generation, then no to both. Sometimes people just do things to do it, even when there is no point, where easier faster options are already available. Maybe there will be a day when they think: "hey, I wonder if I can use this thing I made before, to do this other thing" and have another project to work on. Its like a series about getting hydro power from roof gutters. Its a great proof of concept, but it was never going to be best or easiest option to..say charge a phone. If that was the point, a solar panel would have gotten the job done on day 1. watch this series when you've got some sit-down time: Rain Gutter POWER cs-tv.org/tv/video-S6oNxckjEiE.html

    • @DieselDabz710 how often have you been asked "what are you thinking about?" and responded "nothing" This is what happens when you engage with something that crossed your mind, and choose to act upon that very question. This is why we have everything we have. Sometimes we create things from specific need, other times we create, or play with ideas, that we eventually find a need, or use, for.

  • Awesome work man, you made it look so easy. Very satisfying to watch, very unique!

  • This is awesome. Would definetly buy one when available

  • I’d buy one. This looks amazing

  • Thats very cool! Now I want to create a collection of bolts like these, when I got 3d printer!

  • Your channel is destined for mega greatness! Your skills are beyond next level! Well done!

    • @Kokey It's okay, I just drank an entire pitcher of kool-aid made with water from the River Lethe, so now I'm exactly like you! OMG the bliss, the bliss!

    • @Seven Inches of Throbbing Pink Jesus *hey look a edgy person in the internet!*

    • @RuhrohRaggy omg I forgot about him. RIP

    • @RuhrohRaggy smh

    • @Seven Inches of Throbbing Pink Jesus ok?

  • I’m a 3D designer/engineer and a jeweler, so amazed by this video that I had to subscribe. Seriously! You’re brilliant!

  • A work of art. If these were for sale, I’d buy one for my dad, and insist my wife bought me one.

  • Very interesting to watch the process of 3D print to finished metal. Thanks for sharing.

  • Wow,excellent job there. Never knew that bolt with opposite threads can be done. 👍👏

  • Wow! I’m really impressed with how intelligently designed this thing is, and how well you crafted it! Thank you for sharing!

  • That's honestly an amazing result.

  • If you set up a good bearing on the bottom, an have screw threads that are 1, 2, 4, 8 times the lenght of each other, you could actually make an adder subtractor that used the inertia to rotate the head to the number coresponding to the caculation.

  • I work with SLA printed models for metal casting and this was awesome.

  • So satisfying! I really hope to be able to be able to buy a set when you're ready to sell them.

  • Absolutely fascinating, Glad to see your wife was keenly involved by contributing her good saucepan for cooling down the castings.

    • @sayyam zahid ;-;

    • @sayyam zahid ;-;

    • @99codemister I live in Karachi Pakistan and I like your comment

    • I live in Karachi Pakistan and I like your comment if you don't mind

    • That's a dutch oven. A saucepan is called a "pan" because it is a very shallow pot.

  • 1.)Do a ring with threads so the nut goes forever, 2.) can you make a splice and take different routes like a train track? 3.) so you can put a reciprocation working end and a berring on the nut, wonder if you can collect the up and down stroke by having an inner drive shaft and an outer drive shaft.

  • Astounding! Now make a circular one to act as a perpetual motion machine!

  • I buy one of these if you could design a version that didn't have a carbon footprint the size of Alaska. I always appreciate the amount of effort people put into proof of concept ideas. Great job.

  • Muito legal. Parabéns.

  • The ting it makes every time a nut switches directions is just absolutely exquisite and brings me great satisfaction every single time. It sounds like you have just achieved or unlocked something truly astonishing in a video game when it makes the sound. I do truly hope that you would sell 3D printed models of these because I could and would play with these all day long.

    • It's nuts

  • Thats really cool. The things we can do with our imagination 🙂

  • Great presentation how 3D print helps in developing interesting projects!

  • As a fellow metal man, I appreciate the shit outta you&this video. So many people will never understand how much effort goes into what you're doing. Hell, just the hours and hours of the thought process before it even gets physical. Lol.

    • 👍👍😊

  • Ever thought of using a wire wheel or dremmel to remove castings? Not sure how it would work.

  • I 3D printed and poured melted metal into the mold I've done in my backyard... Impressive. Very impressive :)

  • Great video! I just wanted to notice your channel emblem reminds an ancient Egyptian sign for the 3/4 fraction as well as the Neverwinter Nights game logo. Nevertheless, your sign is truly simple and unique.

  • Nice video, I like it alot and learned things. I used a dull hack saw to cut down some handle bars the other day. It's all I had to use, right then. It sucked and took forever. Also I probably didn't have the blade tight enough either.

  • THE ABSOLUTE BEST home casting results I've seen! Dang near perfect castings. Well done sir! You got a sub from me just for this video. Hopefully I'll like the rest of your videos as well!

    • +1

    • Darn! You said everything that I came here to say.

  • Awesome job! The detail you got from using the suspendaslurry is amazing. I did a lost pla moon but used a poured investment, it was no way as awesome as your work. I might have to try suspendaslurry. Great video

  • This was absolutely brilliant 👍

  • I used to be a tin knocker and also worked on a 12 ton hammer at a drop forge, so I understand the properties of metal. I have to say that I really enjoyed your video!👍🙂🙏🙏🙏Teaching our young important things that could be useful in the future.👊👊👊

  • So much respect for you. Very cool vid man, subscribed!

  • This is amazing. I'm actually trying to come up with some real world application other than a desk toy. Perhaps a really difficult angle in which a wrench wouldn't normally work but now it does because you can simply move it back and forth and still tighten the bolt. Or another idea. Around where the thread changes direction you could have 2 bolts next to each other. When you'd somehow be able to lock the bolts together and they are positioned on opposite threads it would be impossible to turn them.

    • cs-tv.org/tv/video-a37VUEkKhb4.html

    • 🤡

    • If you can remove the bolt head and make the bolt longer you could stick a (well lubed) bearing onto it and when then using a finer thread pitch that incrementally changes (this will be important) you can try and make this the clock source for a mechanical clock. you just need to get the weight of the nut(s) and the thread pitches right so that as the nut accellerates on its way down the thread will ensure that the bolt always rotates at the same speed. making it an accurate time source... getting those ratios right is an entirely different story...

    • @thefastmeow you've just made this whole post perfect. Starts with someone not knowing about an existing tool. Ends with a designer forgetting that circles spin.

    • @TechNaiSci maybe try making the tightening direction of the nut opposite to the wheel rotation?

  • Could always do one that's is similar to that but before each change in direction is a cross thread, might look more smoother. So it's go like right thread, cross thread, then left thread.

  • I'm amazed! I bet something like that could help ppl who have anxiety or nervousness. I feel better just watching you play with it. I have to show my Papa this video. He would really appreciate this genius creation.

  • That was cool! Can you forge a Tesseract that can move as shown in a GIF except using the *zigzag* threads to do so? (It would be really cool to watch it moving on its own)

  • That first one looks and sounds so satisfying, I need one

  • That's so awesome. I would love to have one of those made of any material. I've been workin with metal my whole life, from aluminum to my past 10 years in carbide, and haven't seen anything quite as neat as that. Subbed.

  • If I had the discretionary income for such a trinket, I'd definitely want a cast metal one!

  • "I decided to try and design something as equally unique and annoying to play with" How thoughtful, mean, and honest. I feel the power of dad jokes is great with this one.

  • Cool bolt. Another idea is if you could make another nut in aluminum, about the same thickness of the bolt head and soldering it into the other end of the bolt to look like a double head bolt. Great stress relief gadget! 👍

  • Очень круто, ты молодец 👍🏼

  • We have versions of these at work. We call them 'Levelwinds' and they are about 3" in diameter and about 6' long. Mounted on a trailer that has a big rope reel on it for pulling in powerlines overhead. The 'nut' is actually a grooved roller that goes back and forth from one side to the other and back again insuring the rope gets evenly wound up on the rope reel. Also, it is razor sharp!

    • Ya I've seen bolts EXACTLY like this before as well in the military

  • Does the 3D printed version also work as smooth as the metal one?

  • great job, but isn't that hard on the cast iron? For Soft metals you need a "Vixen" file, they don't clog and remove more material easier while leaving a nice smooth finish.

  • I would love either the plastic or metal version Please Please Just love it, keep up the great work and videos👍

  • Thanks, I think you did a great job. I do have one thing for you to make, but the information will not be put out on the internet/ intarnet until its already in my hand. And I have an eye popping storie to go with it that goes way back to ancient times. So far, not one person that claims they want to do a new project has taken me up on it, even though it could be worth all the gold on earth. Peace bro. Kool video

  • I don't think i've ever seen such flawless execution on a project. Awesome!

  • Very cool. I would love to see you have a hole tapped in a block of metal that this bolt could screw into

  • Do an "hour glass" version that has a head on both ends and enough nuts that it takes a full minute for them all to drop.... may have to put it in a base that keeps the bolt from moving to keep time consistent

  • Hi!!! Great video, awesome work, incredible creativity! Can you please share, what software do you use for printing desing? Thank you.

  • Could you cast the metal parts for a 3d printer and see just how much of a 3d printer you can build with your tools? Apart from electronics obviously.
