I am using the SMT unit and the set-up / technique as generally described by Bill Seeley. Sometimes, I see small sparks coming off the work piece at the higher voltages. What do these signal, and should I be worried?
I teach our fold forming classes and I read that niobium can be fold formed My concern is that with copper, I anneal it fairly often with some folds What folds can be done with it any hints? I love making pea pods by hammering on the folded curve, but I always have to anneal those before I can open them. I have this dream of nice green pea pod.
Hello, I feel really silly asking this question because I fear the answer is obvious and I’m just missing it, but I don’t want to electrocute myself. When you say rubber gloves are these like the kitchen cleaning gloves with latex, or do I need electrician gloves? Thank you.
Anybody have any comments regarding how to best ”pad” an anodized raised patterned disc without removing the unraised background, near its edges for example? Which Micro-mesh Soft Touch pad grit typically works the best? It seems just the slightest pressure in an effort to remove the first anodized background layer off the raised pattern surface also tends to mar the unraised area too. The coarser the pad, the worse it is. Seems there is an ”optimum” grit that hits only the raised pattern, leaving the background in tack, while having enough ”bite” to get the job done without overdoing it and marring the background. Making a lot of scrap and little finished product. Thanks again, Rick
