Ramah Machines Building a Metal Disintegrator by Benjamin Fleming

cover photo

When you snap off a drill, tap or even a stud deep in a block of steel, you're in trouble. It's a first class pain in the neck to remove it. But it's easy with this metal disintegrator. Essentially this is a vibrating engraver driving a commercially available electrode into the metal. An electric spark eats away the metal, leaving a clean hole.

At first you might think that such a machine is an awfully elaborate solution to a infrequent problem. But the beauty of this machine is that it is the first cousin of ECM machines - those high tech devices that perform machining miracles.

The disintegrator is built from commonly available materials. A lathe or milling machine is not required. You get details on assembly of the vibrating head, electrode selection, fabrication of water flow device, power supply, and much more.
