    Here's what a Geka Hydracrop will do with 1.5 x .1875 angle. A little distortion, but surely good enough for any weldment.

    Boy, this sure hits close to home. The brain fog, the tired after 10 hours of sleep, the 2 hours of work in a 10 hour day. On a rough day, I'd lose visual focus, too. I'd look at a tape measure,...

    This is worth repeating. In a nutshell, depending on your level of income, you get a subsidy on the premiums. The subsidy is given, in variable amounts, to people earning up to 400% of the federal...

    I finally today got a quote from Eastern that's competitive with Pierce and Phoenix, so I can use up my credit from last July.

    I use magnets to stick the urethane to the front and back of the die, but it does require fiddling with after a few bends. The rubber band trick is one I'll have to try.

    For thin stuff like 1/8"...

    My aforementioned poly wheeled ones are the 2 axle version of that, and they do have bearings under the swivel, so I would say it's highly likely the 3 axle ones do too.
