I would guess that the road surface in the second iron horse pic is made of individual bricks or some other kind of pavers.
I have never seen one. Where was that? Does it still exist?
I would love to see photos of its construction.

Look up "cobblestone road construction".

I'm a little wary of this rig. Maybe on level ground but I think I'd put outriggers on it anyway.

I saw one like it recently and liked it.
Gotta watch the center of gravity to avoid the Porsche prob of a week or so ago.

This shit is bananas:

Looks like it cuts it off at the end too. The pieces of tubing are part of the design of something so the know all the lengths, radius of the bends and the angles, and probably on a drawing somewhere. So all they had to do is build this two stage machine. Stage one to read the drawing and stage two bend the tubing. Still has to have a human there with rag in hand to grab the piece when the machine cuts it off to precisely the right length.

Check this out the video of this guy working on an old car. The video is basically boring but he runs into a clearance problem with a spark plug socket. At about 14:00 he solves the problem in the most dangerous way I can think of. :facepalm:

Grav: No crimps!
Bruce: "Boring" is generous. I don't have a power wrench, but if I did, I would not use it on plugs.

JFC, dude! Just remove the head bolt.

Geez, how hard can ya make something?!

Taking out a head bolt can be tricky. One, the spark plug might be in the way. ;)
Also head bolts usually have a torquing order and may be torque to yield bolts that can't be reused.
I'd have chucked it up like he did but taken it down with a portable grinder.
Even a file or coarse sandpaper would have been safer.

These have been around for more than twenty years and nobody I know ever heard of them.

Cool idea! Bikes are getting torque crazy maybe there’s a market.

yeah but....

Where do you put the dot once you've adapted it for bikeland by making it an allen head?

There are so many things wrong with the concept, the ad and the video, it makes my head spin.
They need to disappear for another 20 years.

xoxoxoBruce 07-14-2020 11:27 PM

What's wrong with the concept, I think it's a great idea. My concern is if it works reliably enough to be trusted.
There is no ad, and the guy who made the video has no connection with the company, just one of those hundreds of Utubers making entertainment.

They do a cost analysis showing the savings on selected applications.
