    Doesn't measure projects or doesn't measure time?
    If you ask me what I am doing on a particular day and I say I am doing nothing, it does not mean I am available. It means I am doing nothing.

    In the Jabber I was mentioned to Pagie and Simplicity that I had bought some scrap steel from work.

    I saw this lying around

    P1070751 (Medium).JPGP1070755 (Medium).JPG

    and I immediately thought I could see a hydraulic press with the use of a large bottle jack. I calculated the frame weighed 348Kgs (from steel mass books)

    I also spotted in the waste skip some pipe

    P1070749 (Medium).JPG

    This is a smaller sample. As you can see it is just under 5mm wall thickness.

    P1070756 (Medium).JPGP1070757 (Medium).JPG

    Quite useful as it is seamless and being stainless steel polishes up nicely.

    P1070761 (Medium).JPG

    It is the internal tube from our sootblowers at work. They are devices that insert into the boiler while rotating and blowing steam at the same time. This rotary action cleans off ash deposits from the boiler tube surfaces and allows better transmission of heat. This tube is from one of our longer blowers and before being cut up was probably close to ten meters long.

    I negotiated monetary exchange and brought them home. While the steel scrap bins are collected by the metal merchants for a sum of money, private purchases, such as mine, are donated to the Life Flight organisation.

    Did you see medieval stocks perhaps? I can see that as an alternative to the press and I think I could find a few political candidates for the first inhabitants.

    No not so much Stocks, I was getting a more French revolution kind of feel.
    Maybe with Australian policies looking more like a Alice in wonderland fairy tale.
    Maybe it could be off with there Head(Heads)

    Cheers Matt.

    There was a rather macabre delight taken by the crowd at a good beheading (particularly during the French revolution), but we have not indulged in this gruesome luxury since 1977.

    That was the date of the last execution by beheading using "Madame Guillotine." Just a little information in the light of your request for cutting angles (albeit on your gentleman's size saw for gentlewomen): The blade on the guillotine was made from 1/4" plate and was cut at 90į. It relied on the angled blade and weight to achieve a clean cut. On the positive side, it never needed sharpening.

    Bet you're glad you asked. What's that? You didn't ask?

    Oh!

    Paul,
    What will the punters be thinking of us [emoji45][emoji45].

    Some light reading, just in case you change your mind on the Press.

    Madame Guillotine and her Victims - The Reign Of Terror in France 1792-1795

    Cheers Matt.

    Is there some sort of competition on between the Sunday Round Table Jabber and the Friday Lunch Prattle over which gathering can come up with the most gruesome discussion topics? Things are going South very quickly.
    If you ask me what I am doing on a particular day and I say I am doing nothing, it does not mean I am available. It means I am doing nothing.
