    Default Tube

    I would have bought an 8x8x .500 tube and plated the sides that bear the most load. Does that make any sense??

    You all make me bust my sides. I'm falling out of my chair Laffing as I hit the...This is funny stuff here I mean to tell you. The 3/4 will do fine. The other welder got a deal on the one inch. The other two were made with 3/4. Anyway I just got back from welding the floor back on the right side of a 637 western bowl. Seems to have split away from the side to within a foot of the rear edge. Glad I had a bunch of 5/32 rods. And I took pictures. Its the same sort of truck assy. Now I go get camera to do the digital wonder. The actual tow pin is 4 inches in diameter, about 16 inches or so long. Big nut with 12p threads. I'm going to get the pics ready.

    Reading through this thread I was expecting you to be making a stinger to pull scrapers with. I operated Cat 637D twin engine scrapers for a couple of years at a coal mine I worked at in late 70's, early 80's. Those babies take a lot of abuse!

    Hired in as a welder so I had plenty of experience repairing and fabbing all kinds of equipment. Took about four years to figure out that I could be the one doing the tearing up and sitting in an air conditioned or heated cab instead of repairing broken equipment while sweating or freezing my behind off! Slow learner I guess. Either way it was a great job!
    Flash me! I'm a welder.
