It actually works pretty well. I have been using my bare hand on it though, and I will stop doing that just to be safe....

Patrick, be careful, think of the investment you already have in your manicures.
a couple missing digits and all that work will be in vain

But on the plus side I would lessen my future manicure costs.

A hammer is always a good option when reading one of Patrick's "I'm bored today" threads. I wish I had one right now to hit myself in the head for reading this thread.

We've been suckered down another rabbit hole.

Here's a faint memory...remember Pat's thread on the cake sprinkles bottle for some type of catch can?

Kind of like Avis and Hertz? Honestly, I think the post calculation is wrong anyway. I just don't think I've posted 18K times. That would border on "obsessive behavior."

No, more like the color of your Cobra. Beige-ish or Brown-ish and flushable.

OK, pardon me but I just have to make a comment about the units of torque, hopefully something all of us should understand. Twice, in different posts, torque was expressed in ft/lbs and then later just lbs. Torque is the product of a force (lbs, newtons,...) and distance (ft, inches, meters,...) so the units of torque are expressed in ft-lbs, in-lbs, newton- meters,...). Then later a high grade aluminum, suitable for rocket ships, etc. was referred to as "T6". Aluminum is identified by the four numbers that define the alloy followed by a T and another number that defines the heat treating temper. The strongest aircraft alloy is 7075, followed by 2024, and then 6061 and would have tempers like T4 or T6. T0 is dead soft. The author probably was referring to 6061 T6 which is a fairly strong and lower priced alloy.

Perhaps the thread should be retitled "I can remove my fingers with one knock-off"

Well obviously the only way I get you nay-sayers to STFU is to post video. So here it is: https://youtu.be/CmkGZXKI3PA and I'll start using personal protective devices next time.

Yes, I agree. I didn't want to get too technical but maybe I should have explained that the final strength requires the right alloy and heat treatment. I have some 7075 T0 1/4" sheet. This can be bent and formed and then heat treated to make a very strong part. The big disadvantage with 7075 though is that it is not weldable, or at least is very difficult to weld, while 2024 welds nicely. 7075 is also heavier (denser) than the others.

Well, if you are looking for "denser than others" then you've come to the right forum.
