tech69 It might rock back and forth a little but don't think it will be an issue. We'll see.

I also tried to put some on my bead roller and it made it extremely unstable. Right now I have it buried behind the roller stand but will have to do something about that asap. It's my daughters favorite "daddy's toy" so I have to make it more safe so she can have her fun changing dies and turning the wheel.

I have never used one so I don't know but I would think that tubing roller would terribly unstable on the wheels. I even thought the base of the legs is too small but you copied one on the market right? I will have to see the thing in operation to understand. It just seems like that tool would go all over the place in use wanting to fall over.

MARTINSR Below is the only flame job I have ever done for money. It's so funny that I have drawn flames on zillions of things, it's the only thing I can draw. But this is the only time I ever painted them. I took this photo in 2000 where this truck is parked still today and has been since I painted it in 1977! NO KIDDING!

By tapping it with screwdriver while the engine is running and the a/c is on it will engage. What usually causes this is excessive wear between the shoe and rotor. The wear usually comes from a leaking front seal and the surfaces get oily causing the shoe to momentarily slip before making good contact with the face of the rotor. Depending on the type of compressor sometime the shoe is spaced with shims. Remove a shim and the shoe moves closer.Then the magnet is strong enough to make the whole darn thing work. It's a temporary fix at best. BUT it doesn't cost anything. ..............

Very good information. Thanks for taking the time to post BB.

tech69 today went swell. Trying a new way of buffing for driver restorations. I'm doing everything with DA and the paint is hard so I'm starting with 1200 and finishing with 2000. Since I put 1200/1500 DA on the car I first hit it with wool then foam. It's coming out better than expected. A pile of crap 39 Ford but it's gonna look clean even though we didn't do any body work and it's a little wavy. It's gonna look good.

Got my tube roller set up and bolted down with my new swag dies and it's ready to rock! This weekend is my son's baptism and art beast for my daughter but I'll squeeze in some TIg welding and can't wait to try out the notcher after modding it. Should be starting the frame soon...real soon.

Oh, and my wife got a big $3k raise and is on salary...her new check is only $8 more, plus she's expected to work overtime with no overtime pay...Eff The Gooberment!

One of the few AMC places on line. I wanted to get it from the guy who is just a few miles from me out on the valley, but they didn't have any, He said they are so difficult he wouldn't sell them used anyway, I would have to buy the whole axle as it came from the factory. When I told him I could get an NOS one he said go for it, that is the best way to do it.
