Re: My Homemade Bender for Press

Here is a picture of a hossfeld bender of mine in the top photo. It is very much like yours. Job well done on your part. I have since cut radii into some solid barstock to make more precise (sp?) rollers and they work well. I am currently working on dies for square tubing. Scott.

removing weld heat marks

Is there a good way to remove the heat marks on 1/8 stainless sheet on the side opposite the weld? It was tig and I was told to use scotchbrite which worked well but left some serious scractches. The steel has a finish. Thansk. Scott.

Re: My Homemade Bender for Press

Nice job. How did you arrive at using that round piece that looks as if it recieves the hyd. ram? How is that welded down to the top piece? I like benders of all kinds. Nice hossfeld bender in your other post as well. Scott.

If you are after loud grinding, high impact and chattery noises perhaps a recording of my work car starting up in the morning you interest you [img]/ubb/images/graemlins/grin.gif"%20alt="[/img]!

Re: high speed south bend

Michael, I am going to step out on thin Ice here [img]/ubb/images/graemlins/blush.gif"%20alt="[/img]. What is a 10EE? I don't know. I was worried about the bearings a bit but all seems to be in order and I have cut some servicable threads with it. As for that pulley, I think I can use it to keep sca...

high speed south bend

Here is something for this dusty "photo section". See attachment. I bought this South Bend several months ago and look at the size of the counter shaft pulley! I think the guy that I bought it from rigged it up and you should have heard him grind the gears demonstrating it for me........... I got it...

If I had several of those I would use them to make quick work of setting the compound rest for cutting different tapers [img]/ubb/images/graemlins/laugh.gif"%20alt="[/img]. Scott.

Re: Stress Cracks

Repairing/welding cast is tricky business, more so when you don't know much about the specific material you are working on. V-ing the crack and drilling the ends are good ideas, but I would look at your filler material and also consider preheating the base metal before welding. Scott.

Re: figure out torque

Thanks to you guys. I think this will work out pretty well with these methods. As for attaching a string to the torque wrench I was just casting about for an idea. What I had in mind was to attach a socket to it (wrench) and then attaching a short bar to the socket and the string to the end of the b...
