Default Progress on a hyd. conversion

I started on a hydraulic conversion on my Hossfeld bender three weeks ago. Down to the last stages now...attaching hoses, filling system and checking everything out.

Early in on the cart build:

Mkae sure you bleed the air out of the cylinder or there could be some nasty snapping action in the system.

Franz, I have your PM saved with the proper procedure...you only need to lay your fine words of wit on me once for the lesson to sink in. Thanks for all the help you provided so far on this project...I can't give you sole credit, but you were very instrumental and provided me with enough information to see that the project was "do-able" with what I had on hand.

Nice cart and system you designed Wyoming. The foot tredel looks fantastic, there won't be a straight piece of steel or tube around (for awhile at least )after you power up the old Hossfeld. Is that a Jet Lathe? You lucky dog. Have fun with it and always remember to remove the chuck key.

Bit off the subject, but I had to have some 1" spacers for mismatched sized casters on this cart. Glad the plasma cutter did a good job...it may look ragged, but I wasn't looking for perfection...just needed spacers.
