  1. I also agree with Thomas that a second test would be a good idea.
  2. What is your source of drinking water? Have it tested.
  3. I thought that I understood, but I think that I did not. Are you trying to stamp the stock like a coin might be made?
  4. A slug is just a term for the material removed from punching the hole. For the others, the picture is the finished part and the hole in it is the 1" hole being pressed out.
  5. I cannot tell what is the scale of the picture. Is that entire thing the 1" slug you pressed out or is the hole I see in it the one inch?
  6. You have got to have the computerized digital clocks that can add or remove the days' hours as needed.
  7. Many curtains you have to thread the rod through to hang them, and taking back down sometimes to wash. I suggest making at least one of your flared spirals threaded to screw on, or have a threaded hole into which you put a screw/bolt to lock it onto the rod.
  8. Drop a 1/2 -3/4 inch dia. hardened ball bearing from 10" away. Using your tape measure or ruler, the inches bounced back up x10 is the percent of rebound. If the hardened face has delamination from the base or if it has been through a fire, the rebound will be reduced.
  9. No need to be sorry, I googled and learned. It just seemed odd. Produced water, how do you produce water? You can, but we generally don't.
  10. Less likely to be bent/broken, yes, but more likely to give you a harder clunk on the head
  11. OK, now you made me search to find out what "produced water" was.
  12. The Hydrogen Sulfide is long gone. What would remain is the products of interaction with the H2S, Iron Sulfide and perhaps hydrogen embrittlement. You could grind/sand with a dust collector and respirator. (Should always use respirator/mask always anyway). Or you could wet sand, provided that you don't introduce harmful by products into your waterways, environment.

  13. The OP got me sucked down a rabbit hole. I had no idea what a "Sour Well" was. So I googled... I read this paper: https://www.longdom.org/open-access/safe-practices-in-drilling-and-completion-of-sour-gas-wells-2157-7463-1000293.pdf It addresses some of the questions asked.
  14. Thomas, I think that he is missing the point of this thread, and the technique.
  15. That's a nice job you did on the stand.
