    Default Coil relocation FAIL

    F you, ,you F'ing, F!

    You have failed me. I heated you up, cherry red and imparted a gentle radius, so as not to introduce a harsh stress riser.
    I quenched you in oil to retain your stiffness.
    I smoothed you, and de-burred your bolt holes.
    I sanded you and painted you to prevent rust.
    AND THIS IS HOW YOU REPAY ME?!

    Thanks to you, my wrist is in a brace. Indirectly, I must admit, but you made me angry.
    My shoelace does a better job!
    And zipties did an even better job!

    As soon as Fabricator Kevin calls me back.

    It was only 1/8" mild but I thought that I was doing all of the right things.....
    The new one is a much better design, it won't last forever, but will make a good template for the steel replacement.
    Once Fab Kevin calls me back....

    orange would have been better. you can mush & form at cherry, but orange to yellow is better for forming. Let it cool, then heat it bright cherry and stick it in a bucket of cat litter or sand to cool long and slow. reapeat at least once more. reminds me I need to get my forge up and running again.
