    He also mentioned corrugation dies and ending the punch before the sheet edge. For aluminum, a piece of hot rolled will sure work as proof of concept, polish as necessary after you modify it to work.

    I have been told (never had to find out certain) federal law has the shipper ultimately responsible for the freight cost if the receiver won't pay. This was under the old ICC rules, don't know if it...

    Talk to some people who deal with the railroad, particularly your possible railroad. You will find you do things the railroad's way, when the railroad wants to do it. I know people who have had IRS...
