Titanium Multi Tool

A Different take on a multi tool

We’d been curious for a while- could a Nomad 883 cut titanium? Yes it can.

The key turned out to be going slow and using a 1/16” carbide endmill. Titanium doesn’t conduct heat very well so the cutter and the area around it will get hot. We used a standard machine coolant in a syringe to keep the area around the cutter covered in liquid.

The other key element was our fixturing wax, which Apollo used to hold the titanium plate down while cutting. Fixturing wax is one of our favorite inventions ever. We sell it here.
