    Useful Fabrication videos

    I thought a thread featuring fabrication-related videos might be useful here rather than lost in the off-topic area.

    I found this guy's channel recently, he's a general jobbing and marine machinist. Explains what he'd doing, doesn't pollute videos with shitty soundtracks, goes into plenty of detail and doesn't upsell the business.

    I know fuckall about machining so cannot judge whether he's kosher or not, but compared to other stuff I've found online, this seems plenty helpful and big on details (if sometimes also long on time).

    Good potential for awesomeness in this thread so I'll make it a sticky here.
    Add some good stuff guys.

                i've posted these elsewhere and they aren't pure fab, but worth a look https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iWQ4Qs09T4s

                      I made the pipe on my old BMW many years ago using this technique, after the old guy who had previously made pipes for me died. Took a few attempts to get right, but after that I turned out a few pipes successfully for other bikes. Also worked when making handlebars.

                      I tried more recently to adapt it to making car headers, but couldn't master the tighter radius bends needed when compared to the long, flowing bends on a bike exhaust.

                        Not automotive related but I love watching these:

                        Nice how they go into depth a little about each technique they use and why. Would love to one day try my hand at it, maybe making some smallish blades by hand forging.

                          Nice one, did you get the tube glowing at all? Can't see any in the vid.

                            What worked best for me was to concentrate on the outside of the bend, and only get it to a dull red. If I heated the pipe all round or used too much heat, I ended up with "kinks" or ripples on the inside of the bend.

                            Its not an easy way to bend pipes, but if I can do it, can't be too hard either. Took me a few goes and a lot of time (and a lot of gas) to get the first one right. The old guy that I used to get to make pipes would churn a beautiful pipe out in half an hour.

                              Guy manages to cram 2 minutes worth of content into 5, skip to 2 min if you've ever drilled a trilobed hole before. Good trick though.
