Re: 1935 Chevy school bus

Way to go B1K! I couldn't have said it better myself and here you go on your eighth post scooping the rest of us--just goes to show that even a newbee can be a know-it-all just like the rest of us!

GE, I'm sure someone else will be able to give you a less technical and more useable definition--if not I'll try to. Jack

Re: 1935 Chevy school bus

B1K, I know that but I just couldn't help myself--it was such a perfect set-up

Hello All, the word chamfer in a word means bevel. It is interesting to note that the use of word "bevel" is owed to Dr. Otis D. Ornothologist who, when not studing birds was an avid wood worker. The story has it that while Dr. Ornathologist was studing how Bevel Headed Woodpeckers stuff acorns in the holes they have pecked that the edges of the holes were tapered which seemed to allow the acorn to easily lodge in the hole. Dr. Ornathologist quickley understood that if he did the same thing to the edge of the holes he drilled for the placement of dowels it would help keep the wood from spliting when he pounded in the dowels. Dr. Ornathologist promptly published an atricle in "Birds and Blooms" and coined the phrase "bevel edged". Years later the term bevel edged was supplanted by the word chamfer which is still in use today.

Since I'm working with chamfers today I should quit BS-ing and get some work done. I'll post a pic of where I used the chamfer. Jack

Re: 1935 Chevy school bus

Note to self.........
Don't ask any more dumbass questions... you'll only get more confused..

For my own sanity I looked it up myself....... Dr. Dolittle says :A chamfer is a beveled edge connecting two surfaces. If the surfaces are at right angles, the chamfer will typically be symmetrical at 45 degrees. A fillet is the rounding off of an interior corner. A rounding of an exterior corner is called a "round"[1] or a "radius".
"Chamfer" is a term commonly used in mechanical and manufacturing engineering. Special tools such as chamfer mills and chamfer planes are available. In tile work, or furniture such as counters or table tops, an edge or arris that has been eased by rounding instead of chamfering is called a bullnose. Where a chamfer does not go to the end of the piece, but "lifts out" in a smooth curve, the end is called a lark's tongue.
An example of chamfering is part of the process of hand-crafting a parabolic glass telescope mirror. Before the surface of the disc can be ground, the edges must first be chamfered to prevent chipping. This can be accomplished by placing the disc in a metal bowl containing silicon carbide and rotating the disc with a rocking motion. The grit will thus wear off the sharp edge of the glass.

Re: 1935 Chevy school bus

Now that is slick, Slick! Can't wait to see how it all fits & seals up. One of my biggest concerns on my door build is wind noise and I won't know until I can hit 65 in it unless I can book some time in the NASA wind tunnel down the road.

Re: 1935 Chevy school bus

Hello All, I I finished the upper bracket for the pole. I used a pair of small trailer wheel bearings at the top of the pole. The ID and OD of the bearings exactly matched the pole and the pair only cost $3.50! After I got the final install of the pole done I climbed out on the end of the elbow and rotated the pole back and forth to check for unwanted movement (its that sort of thing that has gotten me into trouble all my life--but thats what health insurance is for right?) Anyway no problems with the pole dance so I am stoked!

Because of this and that I'll need to get the passenger seat figured out before I try to install the air compressor and air tank for the door (and the door as well). The seat needs to slide front to back and left to right to allow room to get around the door hardware etc. Too much fun! Jack

Of course you do understand that we fully expect to see a YouTube video of your pole dance Jack.
