Tool & Cutter Sharpening (Workshop Practice)

Sprucing workshop instruments is one of the so much various of all workshop actions and the person who is least understood by means of the vast majority of workshop proprietors. this isn't unreasonable in view of the big variety of kit recommended for the duty, starting from the advanced (typically an commercial device and cutter grinder) via to the standard off hand grinder.

Brunel pushed the boundaries of the possible with audacious designs culminating in the gigantic ‘Great Eastern’. 5 per cent purity copper, achieved only 50 per cent of possible conductivity – leaving plenty of scope for material improvement! The latter part of the nineteenth century saw the greater use of aluminium, discovered in 1827, although not deployed as a structural material until the first ‘Dural’ was produced in the aircraft era of the early twentieth century. Important alloys based on nickel were produced using the Mond process, as devised by Ludwig Mond in 1890 and then used commercially to convert nickel (Ni) oxides into pure Ni by utilizing the unique property of Ni to form a carbonyl compound in the presence of carbon monoxide.

The small size makes use of compression rings, universal in larger engines, impractical for commercial units. However, the material combination used has a proven record of sealing effectiveness without the need for piston rings. The gudgeon pin is a simple pin through the piston. This was previously made from a quench and tempered ‘silver steel’ (see Chapter 2), but now employs a standard steel dowel pin, so avoiding the difficulty in precise machining of such a small item. The con-rod is machined from a 2011 heat-treated bar of sturdy dimensions, to withstand the high compressive loading imposed by the high combustion pressures of a compression-ignition (diesel) engine, whilst limiting the inertial loads due to the high rotational speeds.

Extremely simple and effective, it would surely have amused the great Leonardo! Figure 1 Tensile testing – Leonardo da Vinci’s apparatus. Developments in the strength of materials In his book Two New Sciences (1638), Galileo of Florence was the first to discuss ‘stress analysis’, a pioneering work on strength of materials. He even came close to correctly understanding the bending of beams theory which underpins structural analysis. In England, several decades later, Robert Hooke provided a framework for elasticity and the relation between stress and strain (load versus extension) that is at the heart of predicting a material’s behaviour.
