BTW Do you own a plasmacam sort of c.n.c. cutter ?

I can see a "group project", someone making the side plates, another member making the shafts, etc.

If we need anything bent, we will just have you weld it.

I doubt they know either, or care. I'm sure it was whatever was in that load of scrap.

Yea I own one, Need to get it set back up. Its been in storage during this last move. Built one Parking garage last summer, and have been pondering the "Work Shop" build for the next one. Temporarily I would like to get my Plasmacam setup in the Garage, but don't have anything figured out.

At least we know it would be bent. Wouldn't have to worry about shearing any set screws...Just destroying tacks.

Well I decided to keep it, I can use it turns out a good buddy of mine is going
to need to use for his sand rail build. Soooooo.... I machined a bushing for
cutting keyways in it tonight.

It has an oversized 20 mm bore so the bushing was made to fit 0.807" with a
slot cut for a 3/16" square key.

The bearings are 42 mm OD, 12 mm wide, with a 20 mm ID. Which are
very common bearing I can get them cheap so I decided to stay with that
size shaft. I have a piece of O-1 steel that is 7/8" OD for a new drive shaft.
Also I will be cutting 4 flats like the shaft on the Swag offroad site.

I will be drilling out the hole in the hand wheel to 7/8" to hopefully get the
wobble out of it too.

Now I'm interested to know what your buddy is going to use a roll for in a sand rail project? I woke think he would want a tube bender instead?

Another very popular addition to these is to use the HF electric pipe threader to power it. high torque, reversible, and reasonable price.

Think large radius bends.

He, Mike, is going to round up a gear motor, better pricing than HF can do.
