    Seeing a mechanic just zipping up a wheel nut grates on me.

    I was taught to do the lug nuts up to just a few threads before they are tight. Wiggle the wheel while finger tightening the nuts to make sure they are seated before the final torque. Then take the vehicle for a short drive and re-torque the nuts.

    I also re-torque the nuts after someone else has replaced the wheels.
    Nah mate! Go to town on it!

    G`Day 10G. Just a little query are you bending pipe or tube,as they are measured differently .
    Tube diameter is measured on the external and pipe is measured on the internal,so the dies are different .

    Hi pearcey, doesn't really matter, whatever I have at hand, if it looks about the right size, I'll use it/bend it.

    If you bend one using dies for the other, does it stuff the material up???

    What happens is that the tube or pipe will tend or will spread or flatten in the bend. This may not be a problem for you depending on what your application is. If its just a bend thats rough enough so be it. Me I have both tube ranging from one eight of an inch to inch and a half and pipe from one quarter to two and a half inch. I also have a few odd metric sizes. Back in the day my job required accurate no crush forms.

    yeah, all good, I just need to bend stuff, so doesn't sound a like a problem for me.

    I have so much respect for folks who work with metal as a trade, there are so many great skills that you guys pick up, improve upon and openly share. I say metal, coz I way prefer working with steel rather than wood. I reckon it goes back to early school days when I was absolutely crap at woodwork, but just crap at metal work, so I guess I have a leaning towards steel work coz of that.

    But hey, wood guys are just as great, there is certainly no doubt, I have as much respect those guys as well. I work much more with steel, so it's probably more front of my mind.

    Have you seen those T shirts around at the moment? Shows a guy doing some stick welding and the slogan is " I say to myself, what a wonderful weld" pretty funny I reckon.

    ������ If you need that tool to remove itchy swarf maybe better to patch trousers to prevent scrotum dragging on shed floor whilst wriggling and welding! ������
