For an English wheels I have made I found that the self aligning bearing are aways perfect and from a surplus store most of the time cheap receiver hitch tubing works more than good enough to use for the moving parts as long as everything lines up under tension they work perfect and very predictable.

Barina, AKA: the mighty Geo Metro. Look out for the one in Seattle with grafitti on the back hatch that says "Yeah, I'm driving a Metro... what are you compensating for?"

BTW, if a guy has a 30 ton press, what the hell will he need fat chicks for?

Also, I bought a real cheap dolly, swapped out the pneumatic tires for solid, welded on a chain to retain bottles, a hook for goggles, and added a tube to hold welding rod... DIY welding cart. Sorry, no pics; it's in storage twenty miles away.

The diameter of a self aligning ball bearing is the same as if it was sphere so if the diameter is three inches the radius is 1.5 along the axis so if you want a larger radius get a bigger bearing.

sorry i explained like an arse , i meant a smaller tighter radius but the gearings get really small and useless in my opinion then

I got stuck doing some wood work today and needed a way to remove some wood fast so I made a slick out of a piece of an old file a piece of bar stock and a chunk of twisted bar stock and apiece of pipe. spent about ten minutes making this

Default Triumph Exhaust spigot tool:

Triumph Exhaust spigot tool:
Excuse the ugly welds, I had only a stick welder and old rods at the time. This is based on a harley type footpeg mount, gets those spigots in and out without bending screwdrivers.

Default Chain Tool

I made this chain tool from needle nose vice grips. I heated and bent the tips, then ground them down. This tool lets you hold a chain under tension which makes sizing a chain and masterlink installation/removal much easier.
