    It's turns off after i revolution. If I hold the button in, it will continue to run.
    And yes, it has twisted many pickets.

    that twister is great. do you have it set up to do 1 rotation and stop or run cont. or did it stop after 1 turn for some other reason??
    you must make a lot of stuff to put that kind of tool together, but man it must be nice to have now.

    Thanks,

    Here are some pics of the twister. The gear box is a 41 to 1 ratio running a
    1/2 hp 1725 rpm 120 volt mtr. The base is an I Beam which works well for clamping and is very rigid. When we first made this, we had marks on the gears, and started and stopped the machine manually. If you had a good day and your timing was good; no problems. But, under twisting or over twisting is a real pain. So I ended up making a micro switch assembly so once I turn on the power I push a button once for one revolution. If I want a double twist, I hit it twice, etc. The mandrel that the pickets slide into is a
    half inch drive socket welded onto a tube, which as you will see in the picture, has different stops for various lengths of pickets.
    Below are some stills of the machine and rings that have been made. The size of the rings obviously depend on the size of your mandrel. Also, I am supplying links to a couple videos of the machine in action.
    Don't complain about the quality of the video and pics as these were done in a hurry but I think you will get the idea.

    One thing about adopting a dog. If they start to misbehave, you can always threaten them saying they'll go back to the home if they don't straighten up. Idle threats, I might add.

The picture of the black dog is a picture of a picture because he chose to stay inside while I was taking pictures. We rescued him also in 2004 from a local Rescue; a few months prior to adopting the white Chow from Huntsville, Alabama. which we rescued in Oct, 2004.
    Nice looking Dogs - gates look good too! Glad there are people like you to rescue these animals

    Never trust a man who doesnt own a dog!
