Features5 PDF for Cinelerra-GG

Since I can’t find it anywhere online currently here’s the Features5.pdf file from Cinelerra-GG 09/30/2018 release. It documents the Cinelerra-CV and Cinelerra-GG feature set.

Also, it coincidentally has the VP9 settings for Cinelerra that I couldn’t find listed anywhere else under chapter 3.4. Hopefully this helps anyone else whom can’t find it on the Internet while searching.

And since you might be looking for the Cinelerra video editor you can find the -GG version at the project’s website.

Drill Press Squaring (with 3D Printed Tool)

Last week I was attempting use the Craftsman bench press to center drill Titanium bolts with HSS drill bits.

As you can see I was successful at drilling and an utter failure at drilling straight. In hindsight assuming that the table was square enough because it had been bolted and pinned in place was a mistake.

Titanium bolt with a hole drilled through the threaded side.

Igus Drylin Bushings: Replacing Bearings on a 3D Printer

My Prusa i3 Mk3 printer’s LM8UU bearings were acting up. It could’ve been an issue with the installation. Or they might’ve just been junk out of the box.

Regardless, it’s time to replace them. With three Igus Drylin bushings in-hand I’ve decided to swap those in on the printer, at least temporarily.

Improved Filament Spool Holder (with optional motor)

If you need a spool holder that does the job and has an optional mounting area for a DC brushless motor, here it is. I still need some refinement of the motorization option. But it’s otherwise functional.

Sure, there were quite a few other spool holders. None of the ones I browsed on Thingiverse had a license I liked. So I created my own.

Feel free to use or modify it! If anyone has suggestions post them up and I’ll accomodate them if they’re something I need.

And I also shot a video of putting it together. Along with the features that I’ve added in so far.

Sealed 608 Bearing: Should You Clean It or Just Oil It

.I’m now faced with a slight dilemma. The 3D scanner table has been modified for a 608 bearing and printed out. And as it turns out the 608 bearings I intended to use are a gummed up with shipping oil.

Should we clean out the bearings with Acetone? Or just drown them in some PTFE fortified 3 in 1 oil?

That’s what I aim to answer in the next video, Cleaning and Oiling Sealed Deep Groove Bearings (608).

There’s also bonus footage on the 626 bearings visible in the shot. They’re printed in EBay’s cheapest Pink filament I’m currently testing out a spool of.
