    for the baskets .51 cents a foot on line the belly pickets
    with a basket are around $13.00 each plus $1.70 each
    to ship, the baskets cost me $1.04 each and .65 cents

    Monte was talking about King Architectural metals, here's a link to their website. http://www.kingmetals.com/Default.aspx?Page=Home

    montee55 you always come up with some good ideas on home made tools. i plan on making a twister and have a couple of questions.

    do you know how much output torque your gear box has ? i have look at some from surplus center and they range from 336 to 3000 inch #.

    the shaft that comes off the gear box that turns the picket , is that a impact socket welded on it ?

    also could you post some pics of the switch that you talk about ?

    keep up the good work. thanks Mark

    Default Left hand blue...

    When I saw the title "twister" I expected to see some tarts on a mat with colored dots...

    But this twister is even COOLER.

    Nice job Monte and nice baskets c neck!

    The torque depends on input power, gear ratio etc..My gearbox has a 5/8" input shaft and a 1" output. I'm sure it'll do more than I am using it for now. The size of the output shaft and the gearbox itself is a good indicator of how stout the unit is and what it can do. Don't skimp on your gearbox........it's the heart of your machine. I have no idea what the torque of mine is.....It falls under the category of "Twist the crap out of it"
    It is a 1 1/8 x 1/2 drive socket welded to the end of the mandrel.
    The switch circuit is a little complicated and I don't know how to put diagrams
    on the computer. It could be as simple as a cam on the shaft tripping a light switch.
