General introduction

Mostly, magnetic wristbands are very important for those who work in workshops. They allow easy holding of metal accessories such as pins, nails, screws, and other accessories.

Depending on the strength of the magnet, these products may contain even larger tools such as screwdrivers, small wrenches, among others. Besides enhancing magnetism, some come with bags that can help you to keep additional items.

If it is an excellent magnetic wristband, it should provide great comfort to avoid straining your hands. The bracelet should be breathable to avoid excessive sweating and discomfort. Sweat can also cause slipping and inconvenience to your work. Buy an adjustable wristband to make sure it fits snugly in your hand.

Materials:

  • Fabrics and velcro
  • 5mm x 1mm disc magnet
  • A small and thin piece of scrap metal (scrap air duct or flashing)
  • Tape’s painter
  • Rivets

Tool:

  • Sewing machine
  • Thread
  • Rivet Setter
  • Staples
  • Scissors
  • Measuring tape
  • Iron

Guide or making a magnetic wristband

Step 1: Measure the width of your magnetic wristband, which you desire. You use your measuring tape, place it on your wrist, and measure. Note the measure of the magnetic wristband you want your band while wearing it.

Step 2: Cut your thin metal to reflect those measurements.

Step 3: Space out your magnet on the metal. Please do not allow them too close. If you do so, the magnetic pulling force will not be strong enough to hold nails or screws, for example.

Step 4: Put the artist’s tape on the magnet and metal to hold the magnet in place. Wrap tape around the edges of the metal to allow an extra layer of protection against sharp edges.

Step 5: Cut a piece of fabric larger than twice the width of the piece of metal.

Step 6: You fold a piece of fabric in half and use your stapler to secure the fold. Sewing along the long side. Remove staples. Rotate it to the right

Step 7: Fix one side of the velcro and stitch it to attach.

Step 8: Slide the magnetic component into your newly created canvas bag.

Step 9: Confirm the measurement on your wrist.

Step 10: Mark the position for your rivets.

Step 11: Create holes for your studs and place them.

Step 12: Put the last piece of velcro.

In conclusion

Do you find the ingredients you need to prepare relatively simple and easy to find? Not only that, the steps are easy to understand. Above, I have introduced you to how to make a magnetic bracelet already, and there are still any more questions without manually making yourself a bracelet for our work more convenient. Good luck!

Metal cutting with a hand-held saw

Metal cutting with a hand-held saw also called a hacksaw, is a method of chip cutting. The surface quality after cutting has the smoothness as well as the accuracy achieved. So cutting by a hacksaw is often used in the roughing stage of processing embryos from mechanical products in the form of bars, ingots, … for the subsequent operations. In today’s article, I will give you an overview of the hacksaw and the construction of a hacksaw things. Do not let you wait any longer, let’s find out now.

The general structure of a hacksaw includes:

  • The frame is a flat steel bar-shaped into a U-shape to hook the saw blade. There are two types of saws, fixed and adjustable. A movable example can accommodate different types of saw lengths.
  • The saw blade is mounted on the two tangent heads of the saw frame, through two sets of latches. Pink ears (nuts) are used to take apart and adjust the tension and slack of the saw blade.

Handles made of wood have a suitable shape.

Saw blades are usually made of tool steel carbon or by wind steel, tool steel alloy.

Saw blades usually have a length of 0.6 – 0.8mm, a width of 12 – 15mm, and a range of 250 – 300mm.

The two ends of the saw have two small holes (about 2.5 – 3mm) to thread the latch when hooked to the frame. Along the edge, people cut each sharp tooth called sawtooth. There are two types of saw blades: one has a row of teeth, and the other has two rows of teeth.

In terms of structure, a saw blade is a cutting tool with multiple saws; each sawing is a cutting edge.

For easy material cutting, it is necessary to open the saw circuit (to reduce friction between the saw blade and the material). There are three ways to open the saw circuit:

  • Open-loop: open alternating, one tooth tilted to the left alternating with one tooth tilted to the right. This method is rarely used, sometimes used to open the chainsaw.
  • Open medium circuit: one tooth inclined to the left, one tooth straightened, one tooth tilted to the right. This method is used a lot, but only to open the chainsaw.
  • For small saw blade to cut metal, we open the saw blade in a step shape, every few teeth are left, some teeth are right, creating a uniform wavelength.

Classification of saw blades

There are two ways of classifying saw blades:

  • Based on the sawing method to divide the hand saw blade and the machine saw blade. Hand saw edges are less than 1mm thick, and machine saws are more abundant than 1mm.
  • Based on the tooth pitch, it is divided into three categories:

Firstly, small teeth with a tone of 0.8 – 1mm, used to cut thin sheets and tubes with a thickness of less than 1mm.

Secondly, medium tooth type with 1.25mm pitch used to cut steel and cast iron.

Finally, the large tooth with 1.6mm pitch for machines of all kinds.

How to hook a saw on a frame

Loosen the nut or pink handle to allow the movable mandrel to recede. Put the two ends of the saw blade into the two grooves of the mandrel and the movable mandrel, so that the tooth angle is facing toward the movable mandrel. At the same time, adjust the hole on both ends of a saw blade to coincide with the hole on the mandrel and thread the retention latch. Turn the nut or pink handle to tension the saw blade. When stretching, the saw blade should not be too loose or too tight, as both cases easily break the saw blade. So when straining, you need to adjust the saw blade moderately. If you use your finger to flick the saw blade, it will be enough to make a sound.

(Note: clamp the saw blade so that the blade direction is in the course of the working stroke when you saw.)

In conclusion

Above, I have shown you about the hacksaw, the constructions of the hacksaw and the operations. Once you’ve got yourself the best hacksaw, it’s essential to learn the process and how to use it. I hope this article has helped you a bit.
