Forged From Steel... Chevrolet by Deorse Forged From Steel... Chevrolet by Deorse
This is a Chevrolet bowtie that I cut from 3/8" steel plate with an automated oxyfuel cutting torch in my metal cutting class. I had to draw up the pattern and then I had to manually program the parameters fir the shape into the computer, then the machine did the rest. Though it took me and another guy almost 2 hours to figure out how to run the computer controls, then it took me about another 6 tries and 45 minutes to enter the said points fir my design to get it to cut out right which was real frustrating, but it did cut out right and on the first try too. I have more plans fir this piece other than to use it fir a a really cool paper wieght, but more on that later.

Thanks man, I'm sure there are a few that wouldn't mind having this, but then again anyone who has experience with metal work could probably make one as well.

Nicely done! An automated oxyfuel cutting tocrch? That sounds baddass! never heard of one...I thoguth maybe this was done on a waterjet. Those are some pretty clean cuts too, i know with just a normal torch its pretty challeneging cutting a straightline

Thanks man; yeah I know what you mean, of everyone in my class I've got the least straightest of all the hand cuts with a normal torch. With the computer guiding the cuts, get get such clean cuts that you may almost never have to take a grinder to the piece that you cut out with an automated torch. The only qualms I have about the automated torch other than the fact that it is hard to figure out how to use is that the fact that e machine has a bad habit of melting off corners, but then again, that could be the fact that I had adjusted the speed to go too slow on the first corner. Water jet are cool but, I don't think our school could afford to get a water jet, in fact if we did get one we wouldn't have any more space in the South Omaha campus shop; the only thing that we have that is water cooled is the water cooled band saw. Now the Elkhorn or possibly the North Omaha Campus might have a water jet in one of their shops but then again, I'm not too sure because I have never been to their shops.

I guess is one of those machines you just have to use over and over to get used to.

Yeah, but to tell you the truth, if it had like a monitor screen that displays what it is that you are cutting out like the new water jets do, then it would be a lot easier to operate and make changes to the shape that it is that you're trying to cut out.

Ah, yeh i wish my shop class would have one of those, or atleast a waterjet...my teacher says we still dont have all of our equpment in we need for class, which he's been buggin the dean about for over a year..:/ Who knows he might have a waterjet or something like it on his list...

Sounds cool, but man I can't imagine how much they'd cost. Do you watch "OCC" on Discovery?

vash68 Featured By Owner Nov 9, 2011  Student General Artist
Yup I watch it when i can. The street rod class im in has some pretty high dollar tools and equpment in it already..doubt my school would get one the same size OCC has....
