This gets my juices flowing (external link):

Awesome but why the heck start with a cylinder blank. So much quicker to cast the part close to the finish size and machine to final dimensions.


Not sure why, but call me JJ.
I used to hate math but then I realised decimals have a point.

I never knew tires could/would explode just driving down the road. That is scary!!

I've seen tractor trailer tires blow on the road on two occasions. One was directly in front of me. I was very fortunate to be in the SUV at the time as opposed to being on the motorcycle!


It's my life and I'll get pissed if I want to.

I've seen tires blow and had a couple blow on me but nothing like those. Granted, most have been bike tires but I have see a few blowouts on the road. Mostly a big bang and thwap-thwap-thwap, nothing powerful enough to flip a truck.

A friend had a semi tire explode next to him on the highway. Part of it hit his door and did some damage, mostly paint.
I try to avoid being right next to those things when I can.

Wow, imagine the damage if it had been a whole tyre rather than a semi.

AMAZING! Thanks for sharing. I think they got the weights wrong though. It weighs more as a finished product than the starting material (at video time 11:50)?

3.500 kg I think it was, it's German so that's the same as saying 3,500 Kg. The period and comma are swapped over as far as meaning goes.

Because cast would not have the right material properties, not by a long shot. I.e. The metal would have been forged.

Well, for arguments sake, it wasn't a whole or semi. It was a piece of the tire. If you've been following this thread today you will know that if there were a video of it, JJ and subby and ico would be able to determine many engineering points of the aforementioned tire piece.

Good night fellow inmates, time for my beauty sleep. Having been trying that for 58 years, beauty still manages to evade me.
