Re: O-ring material and sizing?

The design rule of thumb that I've used for years is that the depth of the O ring groove is ~80% of the cross section of the O ring deep and ~ 120% wide. The O ring should be a snug fit to the side...

Re: Reorganization, it's like a renovation.

Wow, that's a real clever way to pull a shiv. Have you tried a little heat on the shiv? Aluminum really grows with heat. Is that step shiv so expensive or difficult to replace that you don't just cut...

Re: Do copper air lines corrode?

Copper pipe or tubing will oxidize over time, no good reason to worry about it. The most important thing that you need to do is clean your solder joints with hot water and soap to remove all traces...

Re: School me on electric scooters

Re: Help me plan a full-shop bridge crane system

Just off the top of my head I think that you will need a 12" I beam for a 20' span. Totally depends on what you need to lift. So 11'- 1'- 18" for the hoist gives you 8'6" from the floor. Is this...

Re: Too cold to weld?

You may want to weigh your tank to see if it's empty, your local welding supply should be able to tell you what a full tank should weigh. I've never seen a acetylene tank freeze but I live in...

Re: Base design for a 7x12 bandsaw?

Having those saws up that high might be OK for short lengths or light stock but not so good for long lengths of of heavy wall tube or big flat stock.
