I expect some of those who are accused of being nuts are probably dead.

Yes, some excitement. As was mentioned by someone before, I think the roll would have quickly grown in size. If the roll was laying on the side one would need to watch out for the outer end as it...

In terms of percentage I would guess about 100.

I never measured the radius of the newly released pieces but I would guess them to be around 2-3 feet. The pieces shown below have been processed...

There were two rolls like this at the scrap yard. I'm beginning to wish I bought the other roll as well.

This roll will nearly pay for itself on the first project I use it for. My hope is that...

After removing four pieces from the center I have decided this is the best basic approach. However instead of a strap I used a cable puller.

I will in the future proceed with a slight variation....

Not exactly in reference to the original question but within context I think.

Picture a horizontal beam that is supported on the ends. Now imagine a load placed on top of the beam near the center....

I cut another piece from the center. This time I prevented the cut end from getting pinched. I was able to pull it free by holding on to two locking pliers. I suppose ten years from now I may not...

I'm surprised. Perhaps you have been reading too many of my posts. Even I would not consider such a job unless I wanted a configuration that doesn't exist.

My apologies to anyone I may have...

Yes, this would work well if I was cutting a piece that is near 1/2 the circumference. When cutting a full circumference I would not have any edge on which to place the hooks.

We shall see but I will try my best not to go that route.

I have a power shear that I plan to try next. This I hope will be easier than torch cutting as I did not have fun doing that. I also plan...

Well, it seem someone understand me.

Indeed, I'm a bit embarrassed I didn't get that.

I may not even need to protect the strap if the ends are overlapping. I may even be able to install the strap by prying a gap and sliding it in to...

I was able to roll the roll over the piece in an attempt to begin the straightening process. There was a considerable improvement but it needs another step or three.

Perhaps I misunderstand your suggestion but applying any number of straps to the outside will not result in any movement, it's simply to massive a roll. Even if I could, more compression would be a...

I was concerned about this when I had to push-roll it for 50 yards up a muddy hill to my shop with the loader bucket. Welding is a good idea.

Spencer, I can't tell for sure from the pictures, but that doesn't look like a jib crane. It looks more like a shop crane to me. A jib crane would have a hoist configured on a boom in such a way that...
