    This is a very good point. Get two (or more) guys swingin' on the thing at the same time and the load goes
    up quite a bit. I'm thinkin' the 2" Sched 40 pipe is a better bet...

    Of course a Youtube video doesn't necessarily give a "true" reading of the sound but, to me, at least, those
    spindle bearings sound like they're shot--way too noisy for my liking...

    Speaking from experience, I don't think the deflection will be anywhere near that much. Remember you've got two
    lengths of tube joined together by rungs or cross-members--they'll have much more...

    I agree. I don't think there's much hope of bending 2" OD x .050" wall brass tubing without some support on the
    inside. And even then you'll most likely have to anneal the tube at the points where...

    I'm going to offer some comments but, just to be clear, I am not an expert on this subject. However, my intuition
    whispers in my ear that 50 thou, or even the 30 or 40 thou mentioned above is way...

    Make a "broach" a few thou larger than the hole--use tool steel of some sort--and machine or grind some fairly
    fine serrations around the OD After it's heat-treated press it in the hole and you...

    I bought one of those a couple years ago and it sure makes tramming the mill a lot easier. I love it!

    Yup, a heated regulator is pretty standard on most forklifts or propane powered equipment. Anything that reduces
    the flow of hot water will cause problems but if the water flows properly you're...

    If you're having varying issues within one batch you're probably pushing up against the limits of the
    manufacturers tolerances. And I'm thinking that, however you manage to measure the seal, it...

    ordinary lip seal like you would buy from National or CR? In my experience ordinary seals...

    I would say that .080" to .100" is more than enough. A laser will cut to a much tighter tolerance than that but
    if you're going to bore the holes having a little extra meat won't hurt. Are you...

    I agree. We've used one for years and for real sheet metal (16 GA or thinner) it will outperform any other method
    we've tried. Not only because it's faster but because you get consistently...

    In a press brake 50 tons isn't much. Bending 6 ft. of 1/8 mild steel with a 1" bottom die (8x mat. thickness) requires
    about 66 tons of force. You can overcome this to some extent by using a wider...
