Adam Savage’s One Day Builds: Making a Die Filer Machine!

Adam uses the time he has during quarantine to finish up a kit he’s been working on for over a year: a die filing machine. It’s a tool Adam learned about watching Clickspring, and the kit requires machining and finishing beautiful cast pieces as well as mounting it to a motor and stand. Let’s follow along as Adam builds and pieces together all the supporting parts for this machine and adds a new tool to the workshop!

  1. that looks really cool. but, don’t you think you should build a little (removable) shield to go over the belt between the two parts? something could get caught in there, and it would not end well.

  2. That looks like the same motor Sherline uses on their mini-mills and lathes and they have very little power. You can stall them out with your fingers if you want to.

  3. I thought you might like this link based on your love of tools both antique and new. https://vintagetoolshop.com/
