You might find that you have to make the cones in two pieces. The top of the bender where the punch is held will have a certain thickness. If you make the cones from one piece of material you'll...

The barrel, as you call it, is the cylinder or tube that makes up the body of the unit. The seals you've shown pictures of are there to seal the piston to the inside of the barrel.

You would cut off the "dead" end of the cylinder (opposite to the gland nut) and shorten it up as needed. You can't cut the cylinder in the middle as that would leave a rough spot that would...

I've seen lots of drills with the tang broken off. A bigger drill and too much power is all it takes. If you spin the drill in the taper then you run the risk of damaging it. I'd rather keep my...

Can you post a picture of the cylinder and the seals--if you've taken it apart, that is. We can get an idea of what the seals and the cylinder look like.

There's a good chance that you could...

Yeah there's certainly no obvious fix for the problem. As I said before I have no idea why they even make the MT shanks with the short ends. In most situations it would only take another 1/8" of...

Drilling holes in a welding table is a good idea; tapping those holes; not so much. You can't keep slag out of them. If you use setscrews to protect the holes it's a pain to remove them when you...

If it's a 2011 it ain't a diesel. Ford just announced an f-150 diesel last year.



In any case, as far as I'm concerned a lift gate on an F-150 would be a waste. My brother has a 2008 model...

I've had very little to do with acrylic. What I do know is that it's hard, brittle and has a (relatively) low melting point. Perhaps not the best characteristics for cutting with a rotary tool. I...
