Re: OT - Adventures of Kalamity Dick - Fact or Fiction?

This last photo made me want to go back and look at the picture of Dick's cat. Rich B. said: "There are many references in the record to KD's animal allergies, and none indicating that he ever owned pets, or any animals at all. If Kalamity Dick had owned a cat, it's most probable the creature would ...

I believe they were broken down and put in railcars then shipped to the dealers and then assembled on site.
This action was noticed by Henry Ford who put the idea to use in his industry. He made a lot of money that way.

Well Brent I think that would depend on the site.
Some of the older places might have a difficult area to set up the machinery in and require even disassembly of the frames around the cones.
Sometimes you just have to do what it takes to get the job done!

Re: What coil set has my May-ur friend found?

Look real close at the brass nuts. Do they say Heinze in the groove?
I would say that it is for some two cylinder car. It probably would have been used on several makes.

Re: Cast iron surface repair

Not too long ago I posted a link to a youtube video where a man was laser welding the rust pits on a gun to restore the surface to a smooth finish.
Perhaps someone can find the thread and bring it here for you to see.

Re: OT - Adventures of Kalamity Dick - Fact or Fiction?

A little known fact. Kalamity wanted to build that bridge but there was no river or falls nearby. So being of the inventive ilk he got to work building this machine: dredging.jpg There fore the river and falls came into being. This same mentality is where the phrase "If you build it they will come" ...
