YouTube Weekly Series

Shop Adventures 15

https://youtu.be/bxw0CvQp61s

Learn how to become what we are technical machinist and makers of great products by joining these two childhood friends as they expand their journey.

The current weekly video series Shop Adventures follows these two guys from their home converted into mostly a precision Machine Shop that specializes in micro-machined parts for the watch, timing and instrument industries as they stop working for others and begin to fix, rebuild, refurbish or restore as needed the machines and tools from those working for others days and start filming videos of their daily lives of living and working on making their own perfect product.

SHOP ADVENTURES
This series is filmed in a small rural California Desert Town named Yucca Valley and while the location is in the ever perfect always glamorous State of California the series is anything but a fancy California imagined place or setting.

SAME YOUTUBE CHANNEL JUST ADDING AN ADDITIONAL COLOR
The YouTube Channel is going to grow a bit become more helpful and be a great place for other people to come join these two guys as they share machinery and tool rebuilding in great step by step instructions and cover the topics as follows and here are just two to start with.
How to Rebuild a Barker Milling Machine from start to finish
How to Rebuild the Head Stock on a Levin Lathe

Technical machining and machinery sharing videos
There will be many other videos that cover a single focused topic and they will be released as they are accomplished, where currently we release Shop Adventure a weekly series once per week.
We will release these new technical videos more as they are completed and they are correct to help teach others.

YOU MUST DRILL A HOLE BEFORE YOU CAN REAM IT

ACTIVE ATOM IS GOING HIGH TOLERANCE
The guys at Active Atom have a new mate, a new friend and this friend is a German a metal precision yet vintage micro machine designed to tap holes really small holes that the tapping machines new friend made a vintage micro drill press.

VIDEO RELEASES EVERY MONDAY EVENING
In this video we share some thoughts about removing bearing nuts with dual spanner wrenches during the rebuild of our German Made Hagen & Goebel Soest GmbH micro tapping machine model type HG-2.

Refurbish versus a Rebuild
This rule applies to ACTIVE ATOM precision machining
The German made micro tapping machine is getting a refurbishing as opposed to a full rebuild and if you work around high tolerance precision machinery and tools you know that means the machine is getting everything a full rebuild is getting only without the paint work.
This policy of quality rebuilding refurbishing and restoring are the rules we set into place many decades ago.

In this weeks video
We are wrapping up the final stages when Patrick is made aware that these 2 bearing nuts are going to need to be remade so that after new bearings 2 of the 5 bearings this machine has are replaced these nuts will work accurately and hold tight the bearings under each for many more decades to follow the two of us.
Lance finalizes the main machine base for Patrick to complete the refurbish of
Lance begins refurbishing a Levin Heavy Duty Cross Slide some standard cross slides and a Levin Lathe Turrett

German Tapping Machine built in late 1950's to mid 1960's estimate.

This image from our YouTube video features a German Made Hagen & Goebel Soest Tapping Machine after being refurbished, had the main tapping machine body and electric motor attached to the cast metal base and then all of this including a precision aluminum pole hard anodized in black was added to a base plate for the VFD (VFD is the controller for the 3 phase motor speed) and all of this is mounted for portability to a 12.00 inch x 18.00 inch 1.750 thick maple cutting board with two one per side slotted carry slots for ease of transport.

The cleaning, polishing, inspection, bearing removals were performed in the Machine Shop it was then brought back into our Workshop are to finalize the addition if 5 precision bearings being added and some spindle alignment that should all only be done in a very clean environment which the Workshop area offer that while the Machine Shop is really pretty clean the Machine Shop does not offer the absolute best area to finalize the details of the machines refurbishing and in fact while the machine is in the Workshop it is going to be wired for the VFD (Variable Frequency Drive) as this motor is a 3 phase motor and the machine and motor are going to receive a fused custom sized belt and begin testing for reliability repeat-ability and wear and heat testing or burn in cycling. This machine is painted in the hammer tone as originally an that color is German Machine Green.

Vintage Watchmaker Tool

Active Atom is proud to have an additional skill that is performed in-house and by these two childhood friends on a journey shared weekly through their YouTube Channel SHOP ADVENTURES

VINTAGE MACHINERY and TOOL RE-BUILDERS and REFURBISHMENT
Hi I am Lance and along with best friend and business partner Patrick we machine precision parts in high grade aerospace materials and specialize in micro-machined parts (parts that are really small think eye glass arm screws sized only really complex and such) and since we live in a small rural California Desert town we have this really neat hobby.

MEET OUR CONSTRUCTIVE HOBBY
We just completed this wonderful watchmakers tool below and we are currently working on a German Made Hagan & Goebel Soest micro Tapping Machine model GH-2 with a Albrecht speed Chuck size 1.5 - 3.0 mm.

Patrick and Lance are working on 3 machines simultaneously;
These three pieces of equipment are from a local Southern California company that still make machines and tools Louis Levin & Son Inc.
The company does not these precision vintage machines and tools.
Levin Instrument Lathe 1 with the chip bed 40 plus years old
Levin Instrument Lathe 2 with the chip bed 80 plus years old
Levin Micro Drill Press

These machine tools are receiving the full rebuild treatment, not just a refurbish you see these machines have already been stripped down inspected, polished painted baked and have all new bearings and felts to be replaced and we are going to rebuild the head stocks, spindles in-house but unlike many machines these are very micro machine tolerance pieces of equipment.

The head stock spindle rebuilds has tolerances that must be maintained to the factory specifications:
That tolerance is 50 millionths of an inch that is 0.00005 or 1/2 of 10,000 thousandths of a single inch.

The skills required to rebuild the Levin & Son precision machinery and tools companies highest tolerance machine tools are so important we are going to share this process through our YouTube channel starting in a the coming weeks.

One of our goals is to leave our lessons and approached to how we make or do the things we do and we love the areas where the information does not exist on YouTube meaning we are contributing to the future generations ability to learn from additional sources than the ones they currently are offered.

Come to our YouTube Channel SHOP ADVENTURES and subscribe so you can learn how to rebuild a high tolerance mega precision lathe head stock at YouTube.ActiveAtom.com it is free and it is educational and enlightening we are hoping as we are doing this as you view us and even if rebuilding a lathe head stock or for that matter a machine tool in general you still might learn how the tools that make the things we all enjoy are built maintained and utilized.

#youtube #youtubejourney #bergeon #watchmakerstools #carbidetoolsharpener #horologicaltools #bergeonswitzerland #toolrebuilding #machineryrebuilding #watchmaking #watchmakingtools #bestfriends #shopadventures #activeatom

In this set of 4 pictures we are sharing:
A German Made Bergeon Carbide Tool Bit Sharpener as bought used by us and then after it was rebuilt and finally a catalog image of how they look currently and are offered for sale in 1970.
This tool sharpener is for the watchmaker industry and this particular electric motor driven tool sharpener predates the 1970 Bergeon Catalog.
The catalog image below is from that 1970 catalog where you can see it was made very differently in that later years image then the one we share before and after images as we rebuilt this Bergeon Tool Sharpener to the exacting factory specifications.
This tool bit sharpener is used to sharpen the carbide tool bits that a watch or instrument machine operator would use while operating such machines as a watchmakers lathe a machine that would allow the operator to guide the carbide tool bit along a hand rest edging in ever so slightly this bit to make contact with either steel, brass, bronze even optic glass.
The operator would then make slight cuts to remove materiel from the raw often spinning materiel in the watchmakers lathe in the making of fine precision micro machined sized parts for wrist and pocket watches as well as that such as aircraft instruments and many other precision gauges and such.

YouTube Weekly Series

Shop Adventures 14

https://youtu.be/LrrbJndJvYs

If it were not for YouTube and some really great ideas we thought up a few decades ago (vintage machine and tool rebuilding collecting and utilizing to make a living back then) we would not be here sharing our journey the journey we share is via YouTube featuring 2 childhood friends making a product.

Patrick Lara and Lance Conway are rebuilding vintage micro-machines various machinery and tools to be able to make a perfect product for their ActiveAtom.com website online store in the coming year.

The product will then be offered in very limited edition serialized quantities for people that have a true makers passion to come along and join these two men on their journey from the start from refurbishing, repairing and rebuilding the machines and tools.

HOW TO MACHINE A PRODUCT
Watch these machines and tools come alive with excellent makers quality and then see them take these very machines and make a precision machined aerospace grade metal material product with them.

The rebuilding and the making allow for a true journey and is something we are documenting and we are equally be sharing our techniques on how to accomplish each task of the making process along the way for people now and people in the future to see one pair of guys take on how to make a product from start to finish and to make it using machinery and tools from the watchmaker and instrument makers machines and tools.

This Series is a YouTube Series following these two best friends as they make an American Machined product at their home that is mostly converted to a full machining and finishing operation.

They will handle the 100% making of the product at this location meaning all of the work is done in-house by the two of us and it is all being filmed and shared on our YouTube Channel YouTube.ActiveAtom.com

What we are sharing in this picture below is a vintage German Made Tapping Machine by Hagen & Goebel GmbH that is powered by a 3 phase motor we are running through a VFD Phase Converter. This tapping machine is being refurbished and not rebuilt the only difference is rebuilding gets a full new paint job and refurbished retained its original paint work though all the other parts are blued, blackened or polished replaced as necessary In this photo we also sharing how we are removing an Albrecht Speed Chuck size 0.2 - 1.5 mm so we can test the chucks wear and accuracy to allow us to reinstall the Albrecht Speed Chuck. We are showing the torch we used to heat and then remove the tapping machine chuck from the tapping machine.

We rebuild our older machines

What is the difference in a refurbishing job and a rebuilding job when it comes to precision machinery and tools?

The only difference is the painting work because all the other tasks are completed regardless so it is actually harder to refurbish a machine then to rebuild one.

Please allow us to explain.

We are currently refurbishing a German Micro Hole Tapping Machine.
The Hagen U Goebel Soest Type HG-2 Tapping Machine.
Refurbishing a machine instead of rebuilding it comes down to only a single difference at least that is how these two craftsmen see it.

We realize this tapping machine has a special quick change chuck a chuck is how you install a tap for use in threading a hole, a tap is the thing you need to put threads into a hole that you have drilled.
Regardless of whether you drill or tap a hole it, a drill bit or a tap bit is being held by a holder collet or a chuck in this case it is a chuck because a chuck is versatile in its ability to hold a wider range of diameter drill or tap bits without making any other changes during these operations so be it, the words in the machining industry Quick Change chuck or Quick Change collet holder or chuck and such.

We salvaged the original chuck even though we have a pleasant amount of German Made new/ old stock chucks and the actual key-less chuck maker is still in business making these very chucks.
Albrecht Precision Chucks
The company located in Germany makes a wide range of products and a wide specific range of key-less collet chucks that are of the highest quality made currently.
We disassembled a 1.5 - 3.0 MM chuck and though we are a micro machining operation meaning our work is generally very small intricate style machining this precision machined chuck maker actually makes a model we have many of because of this small work there drill or tap holding size is 0.2 - 1.5 mm, that is really small work.

Active Atom machines are rebuilt to factory specifications or higher
During the disassembly process the machines painted surfaces needs to remain original either it is because the machine does not warrant the stripping of the paints and repainting or it is best to retain the original paint as in this case the color is a hammer toned German Machine Green paint.

Either way each machine or tool needs to be thoroughly cleaned and like all of the components of the machines they must be polished as a form of inspection, then seek out repairs or replacement parts and so forth.

We always replace bushings and bearings in any and all equipment regardless of the appearance that they are in working order, it is easier and often time the correct ways to maintain good equipment and its working order.

Though paint is not in this current tapping machine rebuild many of our machines including one in work behind this micro tapping machine which is a rare special factory addition of a an American Made Barker Milling Machine Series AM is. The Barker Engineering Company machine due to begin a rare version that is unable to be repeated by the still in business factory located in Akron, Ohio USA.

Every machine and tool gets fully disassembled labelled photographed and cataloged so that the machines are correctly reassembled upon completion.

Museum Quality Machinery Rebuilding
We are skilled to the level of working status for a museum piece meaning the machines will, as they do run and make parts as good or better then when the machinery or tools were new.

We just completed a full rebuild (powder coated paint) of a German Micro Drill Press.

We just completed two Flume rare watchmaker motors and on Flume Watchmakers lathe base.

We are currently rebuilding nearing completion two Levin Instrument Lathes with chip beds each 40 years different in age and one Levin & Son Micro Drill Press, company still in business located in Santa Fe Springs, California - USA.

Active Atom precision machining makes American Machined products for both consumers and machine shops.

Notice our business is in the precision machining of products and not that of a machine or machinery re-builder however we make our products utilizing the machinery very old very vintage equipment so we do from time to time add a new to us piece of machinery or a tool or one of our current machines or tools is needing some rework.

Maintaining high tolerance precision work
From time to time in order to maintain our quality standards as makers of limited edition precision machined products we have to take a machine off the line even our small machining operation line and give it some needed attention.

Tolerances might begin to wain a bit so we might need to change the bushings or bearings, scrap the table ways, change quick change collet (like we are doing this week for a very vintage tapping machine mentioned above) or even repaint the piece of machinery of a tool because we are a very unique machining operation.

What makes Active Atom precision machining special?
We feel every business should be unique even if that is true in the smallest of ways though in our case it is a major part of why this 2 man company exists.

We make all of our products in-house.
Just the two of us Patrick Lara and Lance Conway perform all of the work.
From the product design, engineering, CAD drawings, CNC machine programming when applicable, machining the parts either via CNC or manual machines, we do the finishing coating s and packaging electronics when applicable.

Still not all that unique?
We also rebuild and refurbish the machines and tools that make our products only these are not machines and tools off the shelf and put into service.

Getting more unique?
We have spent decades collecting these machines and tools and along the way we have learned to repair them rebuild them and we also learned how to buy new to us machinery and tools as they are brought up via the Internet.

Made in the USA
Made by just two people from start to finish
Made in limited numbers serial numbered
Make to aerospace tolerances and made with aerospace grade materials.
Made on machinery dating back 40 years, 50 years, 70 years, 90 years even 100 plus years and mostly all of our products are finished buy hand as we are also micro machined parts finishers.

MADE IN THE USA
MADE IN CALIFORNIA
MADE IN THE MOJAVE DESERT
MADE IN SAN BERNARDINO COUNTY
MADE IN YUCCA VALLEY
MADE BY TWO BEST FRIENDS
MADE ON YOUTUBE YouTube.ActiveAtom.com

Not convinced to trust these two desert dwellers yet?
Ease you thoughts and pains about the two of us these two childhood best friends are filming the YouTube Weekly Series Shop Adventures that started out as the two of us sharing the rebuilding of some very precision machinery and tools from the past, mostly the machines and tools are rare and that adds to the uniqueness of our story that is actually not a story this is Shop Adventures the Journey.

The Journey
With or without YouTube these two best friends of 40 plus years and business partners of more then a quarter century have been doing this work, training for skills and gaining knowledge to get to this day.
They have learned to correctly perform all of the tasks they perform and they re continually gaining new knowledge.
These two men are not hacks they perform all of their tasks to the best professional level and s watch and instrument parts makers and watchmakers they are trained to be methodical and patient.
