WTH! It's not like some of us were not busy with our own projects, in the country, sweating our butts off in 105 temps with 80% humidity from 4am till 10pm last night. Hell, 47 looks beats the heck out of no one showing up.

Yes, and I was dooing all of that to hook up a reznor....HEATER !

Might come in handy in about 8 more weeks though.

"sweating our butts off "

Unfortunately, even with all that sweating (and rolling round on the dirt floor)
did not , I repeat NOT result in any reduction in that area (even though it is desired)
A quick check in the mirror this morning confirmed that.

good to hear from you lads, id better get this one right. its unfortunate but i cant do this without saying something no matter how confusing it may be.i noticed while doing this it was opposite to the sketch so pic 1 is the next step revised to suit the sketch,i only needed the angle at the time.pic2 shows on a smaller pipe what you are looking at. gerry, i have never come across ready made angles,the rest should clear things up.there is a fast method of marking this angle but ill explain my approach in this case.pic3 shows a square marked at 100mm ,where it touches the line of the angle i have measured back pic4 by dividing run into set you have the tangent of that angle, a good place to find a table of tangents is on a good quality pipe wrap pic 5. the tangent here was .16 i made it 10deg. this left me needing 80 deg. lw once in a while there is a glut of work our outfit cant cover,so at times they use subbies ,on this occasion it was only a few days. if anyone is fed up already ive posted some recent welds in the gallery f/j

I'm all in. I love watching progress.

It finally dawned on me. The drawings are 1st angle, and confusing. That would explain why you started off down the wrong path.

What is the cladding?

john thanks for that. bill, it almost becomes second nature to bend a rod to the shape of the spool, this is a good guide later . i have a similar spool to this with different pics so ill fill in any holes in this one. ie how to mark and cut a 80deg bend. lifted the angle from the floor pic1 and used it to set the butt,the angle is tacked to the pipe on both sides,i used a steel wedge on the bottom until the vertical blade read plumb.pic2. bill i have a pic of the cladding ill show laterf/j

kind of tired lads, so just to mention, the first pic and the previous one ,show that its important to have the break looking to the proper side when you install the bend looking up,the bend up is for levelling purposes. remember the bent rod . another thing i like to do is put both machined ends together in the central butt, i think i have more pics of that butt next. cutter good to hear from you , hope you like them thanks for that one. alan
