    Great day at the Dog Pound Tack we all know petroleum jelly mixed with Neatsfoot oil is for water protection on leather boots and to a minor degree gloves as well. Dang sure ain't for car doors.

    And did Primitive Pete there recommend used motor oil? Motor oil takes up and retains water...

    You got time for a 3 year course of study on salt water batterys?

    Just use New Super Franz Rust Abatement Fluid on exposed raw steel and door seams and forget about it for 5 years.
    The new superior product even flows better in cold weather than in hot.
    You're the friggin Distributor,...

  • Have you considered something in a tool warmer, perhaps akin to your hot dog warmer?

    Maybe you can pick up an autoclave on CraigsList and employ that to get the tools ready to go to work. I once knew a truck mechanic with heated compartments on his service truck for his air tools. Crapperpillar...

    Bob's statement aside, I continue to recall when Rayon held his last city wide water slide event, drowning thousands of tool boxes, Astro Pneumatic not only announced they'd repair or replace all Astro tools damaged by the flood, and did as they said they would....

    replied to Bumper metal thickness opinions...
    The purpose of a bumper is to absorb energy in an impact situation without transferring the energy to the vehicle frame.
    A buper of heavier construction than the vehicle frame will transfer energy to the frame and distort the frame. The S-10 does not have a substantial frame, and is lacking...

  • It's a matter of chemistry. For the maximum flame temperature in oxygen, the ratio of the volume of oxygen to fuel gas are 1,2 to 1 for acetylene and 4.3 to 1 for propane.

    Add in a little more information, once the cut is established the fuel in the reaction becomes iron, and Oxygen use...

  • This method will give you a plastic coating rather than the rubber coating provided by the dip in a can product sold in box stores.

    I value your opinion only slightly less than I value your skill set.
    You have well previously described your willingness to learn in other threads.

    I have refrained from commenting on the instant job you're doing in this thread for good reason. I shall continue to do so. I do look...

  • 9 years, as long as you pour a layer of solvent on top before putting the lid and shipping clips on. The solvent can develops a seam leak after 9 years.

    Let me put it to you this way little fellow; I can't think of a job requiring an Enginurd Stamp to get past regulation that I can't buy the stamped drawings for a few hundred and some emailed pictures.

    AND, FYI Mr MOUTH, hull plate of the same metallurgy as RMS Titanic was in use well...

  • Used it a couple Bleens back, had a gallon can with another an of thinner. It worked, looked good, BUT the coating was not oilproof as factory vinyl dips are.
    Solvent is highly evaporative so you don't screw around dipping.

    Today there may be heated vinyl dips available that...

    Fab on the fly with the only plans bein between your ears is where the joy is Ollie. Them paper drawings allow critters called engineers to screw things up.

    You meant a skilled weldor such as yourself who has the sense to plan the job thoroughly before striking the first arc rarely if ever needs to resort to slopping it on to cover fugups because planning and skill will always overcome flinging barrels of wire at the job and blaming poor results on the...

  • Never bothered hardfacing a blade, simple enough to build on either a copper bar or graphite block, even a firebrick when necessary using e70-s6 wire.

    Worst thing I ever flung was the neighbor's 16# brunswick bowling ball which his kids lost in my field. Look of the hole in his garage...

    Excellent choice of color Bob.
    Not even an idiot steals a box, tool, or cribbing block that color.

    Did you put the winch inside? Okie pole sockets? Flag tree? High Veloscity fan and receiver tubes for vises and other items?

    Bread racks make excellent starting frames...

  • Lockwashers on blade nuts must be another place JollyGreen cheaped out on. My mower has Nylock, and requires no heat.
    It's all a matter of knowing what you're doing and what the job requires.

    Getting iron red hot in a single element of a nut/screw connection serves no purpose since...

  • Re your examples- NEVER heat the nut on a Brush Hog, it is either Nylock or another type of loccking nut. Impact guns are also generally counterproductive on such nuts. Use long handled wrenches, including a reench to hold the blade.
    The pin is more likely being held by a wear shoulder, and...

    Just read the wiki thing. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Edward_Bernays
    Bernays was a brilliant observer and near genius at employing the weaknesses he saw in mankind to profit from them.
    He even rigged his own Obit to put the best possible light to his life of dirty deeds. He invented...

    I've got 10 bucks says you'll come out way ahead by bringing in a 3rd possible vendor, take your pick on brand.

    If nothing else you'll learn more. Definitely make notes and insist on seeing the animal in action at an established customer. Take pictures too.
    You're on alien turf...

    Looking at that assembly I'm sure some engineer is gloating over designing an assembly that can't be built, can't be installed and most important can't be serviced in the field. Perfection in the world of pipe engineering.
