Bloody impressive, did you hand machine it or CNC the lot of it?
Reply
:iconnaughtyzoot:
Oh. Well thank you very much. The answer to your question is 100% hand crafted. 0% CNC. It was all done on a 14" jet bandsaw, a 4x36 beltsander, a 1" bandsander, and a drill press...and a lot of hand sanding...
I thought about CNCing it and got one quote....$5000. no thanks. I appreciate it so much more having done it with my own hands.
Thanks again for the compliment.

In that case, did you buy all the correct sized stock? As I'd look a this as a big lathe job, due to the barrels / cylinder shapes etc.

Oddly, looking at getting a bandsaw, how do you rate them as a tool in general?

Thats quite astute of you. It was a simple matter to buy the correct sized tubes from our metal supplier. No lathe work (wish I had one). Believe it or not I used my bandsaw to do some rough lathe work. If you look closely at some of the details at the ends of the barrels you will see some tapers and groove cuts- all done with the bandsaw and some loving sanding.

I would say the bandsaw is my favorite tool of all I have owned. I have a good (expensive-ish) one which makes all the difference. about $1000, plus some attachments. I dont think much of the cheap little ones but they have value as well. But a big bandsaw is just amazing. You can do an incredible amount of work with it with the right attachements/clever use. I think the Valkyrie is a fitting testament to that. Every cut on that piece was done with a bandsaw.

If you buy one stay in touch and Ill share all I know about them (if you like).
Good luck my friend.

$1000 / 500!

I will keep an eye out for one, but my last 100 bones is going on road tax. However I shall keep an eye on your future work.
