That's a bunch of grinders...
You must be as good at fabricating...as you are with electrical....
Coulda used you on the prototype BBQ Smoker I've been workin on for 3 years...
It'd been done a year ago...but its tough to get help that can pass a security clearance..

Been known to fabricate a few things.Love workin with metal .Been workin on a big wall mural for my wife, she likes lighthouses .Still have a way to go ,few more pieces to finish. Here's a couple teaser pics of the shop I know you will appreciate slapper.


Alright sorry to digress .......slapper only got one correct this time heres the answers from my previous post

(1) is a spring tool, see the black tip there is a slot in it for springs to fit in and the screwdriver handle end is turned righty tighty and it locks the spring to it so it can't go sailing off by accident during installation.

(2) is my homemade pressbrake that fits on the 20 ton press.Works great at bending 90 deg angles or less in steel/alum

(3) is a spool gun for my big Lincoln welder

(4) is a water jet blaster .Hook up shop air and a garden hose and you have a cheap pressure washer.

I didn't know they made a fancy tool for holding springs...
I've always used a 5 ft piece of #7 rope..doubled it up...and yanked on it...
Safety glasses are a must.....

Whats nice with this monster is it's alot safer no flying springs but it is size limited.For the bigdog springs I use a small piece of chain link that I have acquired over the years that just fits perfect in the hands and handles the bigones.It has it's own home hanging on the wall of my service truck itching to be used.


slapper I added some more good info to the relay thread last night .Wanted to help break it down a little farther for peoples.
