    I've heard it said that the vert stab stitches pull out no matter what, but I disagree. I don't recall how many I put in, three or four, but they've never pulled out. As stated above, full length...

    I've used lacquer thinner, and it works - sorta. Like you say, flashes off quickly. Stewarts glue is one tough glue.

    Yes. Note the transverse shear graph referenced above, then add to that the internal shear imputed from the moment diagram. For me, I wouldn't be making big holes without careful analysis or...

    Make sure theyre well bled, and pump em up from below. I used an oil can with a piece of tygon tube to the bleeder fitting to get a bit of preload.

    Maybe. The 4130 box tube I've seen has sharp corners, not radiused. That may or may not be a stress concentration issue. Sounds like an Owner Produced Part candidate though. Get some 4130...

    Yes, that. Mere appearance of potential impropriety can bite. And a kid who doesn't like his/her grade can 'say things'. I didn't teach as long as Marty did, but I was very, very careful about...

    Once the buggers figure out they can breech the fence and the other side makes it worthwhile, the darn fence is merely an inconvenience to them. I had a couple of confirmed fence breakers at one...

    Darrel hasn't been on the site for a number of years, but I've been hampered by a brake / roll that is too small. Get the bigger one unless there's a good reason not to.
