    Scrap metal art or projects

    Hereís some specialty fasteners made from scrap. Not very artistic. More functional than pretty






    ronsiiís male pipe to JIC fittings made me think of these.

    JIC>Male Pipe>Garden Hose Leave THAT setup in your toolbox for future archaeologists to research. LOL



    For spray applications of hydraulic oil?

    I still use a modern model of the middle one for my cutting oil - simple, sweet, hard to beat.

    Commonly referred to as click bottom and spring bottom. Simple and classic.

    I guess it wouldnít be very funny if the ladder tube was installed upside down and some fat guy got stuck in it.

    Canít see the bandsaw but is that heavy steel plate on the deck??

    Was kinda hoping he would stop off somewhere for a bite.... then I would give his trailer a 'safety inspection'... you know make sure he isn't overloaded

    Here's some of the chains I got from the yard the other day, they are about 10-11 feet long(didn't have a tape measure) brand new 1/2 inch big hooks on em'... he had a couple bins of them at probably a ton per bin....

    Big enough links I could easily weld inside the links to make rigid chain

    I only grabbed a dozen because I don't normally use 1/2 inche to tie things on the trailers... 3/8th's is so much lighter

    He'll probably get more though... but there are probably still a hundred in his 'main pile' I could pull some out for you...

    Too heavy for most tie downs but handy length for tow and lifting.

    Tell Sid to save me one.

    Looks like grade 40 with rivet type splice links holding the hooks. I used to use 1/2" gr 70 chains for handling big pipe with the excavators, strap slings were nicer but the abrasion wear was unpredictable.

    Yeah, there are rivet links at the hooks.. I don't remember if the links are stamped... don't think so... very nice plating on them though

    Might explain the weird resume I got by email. Either of you give him a smartphone? Like an android?

    A cardboard bin with carpet for compensation? I never advertised for an IT guy.

    He says he misses the snow and may feel more at home with your winters.

    Asked if your excavator controls are switchable or not. He grew up on JD......

    I found this scrap piece of 14 gauge stainless and bent it up for an iPad stand. I made the existing size work. Didnít even have to cut it.
