Re: 4 gallons of hydraulic oil on floor

Good idea and a nice job. I think I would add a 5 gallon plastic bucket to the bracket so it could contain the oil if the reservoir ever leaked. It would only need to be 1/2 the height of the...

Re: Kicking an idea around for a press brake

Your design concept for a press brake is a scale up of the press brake attachments for a hydraulic press. You may want to study how real press brakes are built and think about why they are designed...

Re: Fittings for compressed air

Copper pipe is called out by the inside diameter, copper tube is called out by the outside diameter. You will find it difficult to flare copper pipe and compression fittings don't work well on pipe....

Re: Fabricating things from conduit

I'm under the impression that 4130 was invented for airframe use and OA welding was the preferred method of welding. If you TIG 4130 it needs to be stress relieved after welding. Is this incorrect?

Re: DIY weld fumes extractor

Nice job. Smart of you to extract the welding fumes at the table level and not suck fumes past the breathing zone.

Re: Finding a fitting?

Those measurements are a close match to a standard 4" steel weld elbow. You should be able to find one at any large plumbing supply store.

Re: Water pump flange rework

Are you boring the hole before reaming? Do you dial in the face of the flange before boring and reaming? Is the hole you're trying to ream run true? Anyof these might cause your problem.

Re: Need some help from the G.J. brain trust

Perhaps you could open up the groove in your lower molding so that the windshield makes no contact. Then support the glass with a couple of rubber blocks in the grove to hold it in place and then...

Re: Atlas 618 Lathe - Deal or No Deal?

Craftsman/Atlas lathes were junk when new and don't improve with age. You would be better off spending twice the money on a new import.

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.
