    A Micrometer is widely used for precise measurement of small distances. I use a Micrometer to measure the thickness in materials like sheet metal or aluminum. You can also use a Micrometer to measure the diameter of a cylindrical shape or sphere.

    Types of Micrometers:

    Outside micrometer, (aka micrometer caliper), typically used to measure wires, spheres, shafts and blocks[B]

    Inside micrometer, used to measure the diameter of holes

    Depth micrometer, measures depths of slots and steps.



    This is a Starret T436XRL-9 Outside Micrometer from Amazon



    This is a Metric "Caliper" style micrometer made by “Draper.” It’s manufactured from hardened stainless steel. Slider displacements are amplified by a rack and pinion mechanism and indicated on the dial. Four way measurement: internal, external, depth and step. Reading 0.02mm. Slider has lockscrew function. Display packed in plastic storage case.

    Avoid fraying your PSU cable sleeving ends by using a Heat Cutter for cable sleeving.

    GREAT THREAD! I really wish that hole punch did not cost an insane $500+ bucks though. Why does it cost that much? Did it really cost even half of that to produce? I understand that it's a niche market and that the company has to get its investment back. But really?! $500+?!

    This would be nice to own. CNC Shark Pro Plus Router, sold for $3,599.99 by ROCKLER



    You can use the CNC Shark for carving, cutting, engraving, and etching hard materials that include, aluminum, MDF, wood, pvc, plexiglass, acrylic, and plastic.

    You must supply a PC computer with USB 2.0 port and a Bosch Colt router (router sold separately). Simply connect the USB cable to the controller box and the other end to your computer (not compatible with Mac computers). The CNC Shark work table measures 28-1/2” wide by 36” long. The router itself can be moved over a 25” x 25” work path centered on the table. With its open end design work pieces longer than 36” can be placed into the machine, and continuous machining is possible with careful indexing of the workpiece. The table is much improved over the original Shark and Shark Pro in that its made of a blue anodized extruded aluminum channel which allows for great flexibility in clamping down workpieces. CNC Shark does include Vectrix CAM and 3D design software, but you'll want better graphics package like CorelDraw or Adobe Illustrator to create advanced artwork.

    Hey Bill, I have a question regarding painting plastics. I watched your video guides on youtube for painting metal but the video response for plastics is gone, for sanding, would it be fine to go from 320 grit, to 400 then 2000 (just to be safe)? I want to make sure it bonds well since the paint was damn expensive, haha.

    Yes I agree , it is a pretty natural progression, I'm going to start a new build today , I started with a cooler master 430 and wrapped it in carbon fiber but it wasn't enough felt to " easy" you could say , so now I've decided to do a crysis theme on it, I will post a thread once I've started , feedback from a pro would be AWESOME !!!!!!!
