In this video, Dan Gelbart shows how to build prototypes using a die-cutting machine. He explains how to clean and fix the part, how to bend it in the correct order, and how to cut it off and touch up the corner.
00:00:00 In this video, Dan Gelbart shows how to build prototypes using a die-cutting machine. First, he cleans the part and fixes any mistakes with a spot weld. Next, he bends the part in the correct order and sinks through the bends. Finally, he cuts the part off and touches up the corner.
00:05:00 The presenter demonstrates how to bend a metal part using a Dewalt bending tool. He shows how to bend the part in two directions and explains that it is easier to bend the short edges first.
00:10:00 This video demonstrates how to bend a cover to fit perfectly over a carving. The video includes instructions on how to calculate the bends and how to fit the cover over the carving.
00:15:00 This video discusses how to build prototypes using enclosures. First, four bases are created, with one side attached to a fence. The other three sides are then adjusted to be right angles. Next, braces are welded to the sides, and the box is bent to a square. Finally, the cover is attached and tested.
00:20:00 In this video, Dan Gelbart demonstrates how to build prototypes using enclosures. He notes that the holes in one plane will be perfectly registered with the machine, and that all the holes in one plane will be registered with the band lines. He also explains how to attach captive hardware, and how to sandblast the finished product.
00:25:00 In this video, Dan Gelbart shows how to paint a prototype enclosure using a silicon rubber cube or mask and Captain Tape. He also explains how to reduce the voltage for electrostatic shielding.
00:30:00 In this video, Dan Gelbart shows how to build a prototype enclosure for an oven. First, he checks to make sure the enclosure reaches below the outlet pipe. If it does, he hangs it in the oven, using either 275 or 380 degrees Fahrenheit as a temperature. Next, he covers the enclosure with mounting schools and ties the car's feet to the schools. Finally, he slides the enclosure off the schools.
