Source for Steel L smaller tha 1/2 x 1/2

I need to source some L bar of steel but smaller that the standard 1/2/x 1/2
Ideally 5/16 to 3/8 1/16 wall

Used fro cleats on an 8" tractor wheel like very old tractor used before rubber tires

Steamer would most likely know where to find it

Re: Amazing machine work

Good plan, the 3rd engine may be the "blueprint" to put the other two back together. I was going to wish you good luck but I know your skills will assure the success.

A friend of mine made a 1/4 scale of the Merlin and is running.

Re: Amazing machine work

Glen, I like the display and it even seems it has some kind of plan. That engine must have a gazilion parts. How do you put is back together with all those parts seemingly scattered.

Re: metric drill swap

Re: metric drill swap

metric drills, which I have little use for.
A metric drill is nothing but a filler for spaces between imperial sizes.

Integer number infinitely many
Rational number infinitely many
Real Numbers infinitely many

One could not possibly have all the sizes

Re: Graziano SAG12

If everything fail you can take the transformer to a motor rewind shop and see if they can reverse engineer the transformer. Is not difficult, I have done a few.

Re: Diaphragm fabric

Basically you want a piece of a mackintosh raincoat.
If all else fails you can sandwich a Teflon layer between two silicon reinforced fabric layers.

Look at McMaster under "Fabric" AND under "Gasket" is not known if some fabrics are water proof or porous but some may be impermeable.
