I don't have one to study. How the Stauffer boys got away with pouring all that iron for decades on end, h ell if I know?  :wondering:

You aren't imagining anything.  I watched one of those geared boat anchors oscillating in hyper drive in the past.  I sucked at algerabra, triggeranaumatry, and geograpghicanomitry. So which one of them there physic applications is making the cast arm push the cast link insy outsy faster.... h ell if I know. :gears :tumbs
