Trying to keep up with Mark!

Post by Mike Everman » Fri Dec 03, 2004 8:34 pm

Don't know how they're going together, but planning, plotting, scrubbing my hands together in anticipation, afraid to apply my torch to such beautiful hardware, etc. Just a little free association. Will certainly be along the lines of a "breach loaded" engine of some sort. I want to put that one to bed one way or another...

Hi Mike,

I have also found that My granite surface plate makes a fine " table " for various uses !!! It is usually the only horizontal surface that is not covered with parts of projects. The rest of the tables usually look like a layered archeoligical dig site, with parts and tools piled neatly ( ? ) in place.

Hi, Al. I don't want to give you rock envy or anything, but that one is 6' square, 14,000 lb, AA grade. Hoop, hoop, me pound chest!

It used to be a hydrostatic bearing for a jet fighter shaker table (one under each landing gear). I love granite blocks. I have a dozen of various sizes, that's the big 'un though.

Here's another canister Mike, no self-respecting long ferrule owner should be without. I was thinking to make a tiny jam jar device out of mine, it'd hold enough fuel to run a very small jam jar a half hour at least, and maybe an hours worth. Or perhaps it could be some side-mounted fuel tank for a smallish pulsejet or Reynst, attached with a T side fitting to the main body. It's from the same guy who sells the 3 inch canisters. He must have a ton of these things, he's been listing them for quite some time.
And Al, you might consider a long deep freezer, it's the only thing in my 2 car garage that I use for a table, the only thing that is forced to remain clear.

Looks like an anal probe. Does it really taper to the ball-end, or is that an illusion?

I guess the clamp holds everything in place during heavy pulsation. If you're going to San Francisco ... you better torque that sucker down!

Mike,
It's just a straight tube, much like a large test tube but made of 316.
