Horrido 8.8 snap. I had failed to bend this in the 5 min time limit. So with some rest and technique adjustment I was able to finish it off in another 5 min with much better movement.
8mm x 180mm HRS reverse.
1/4" x 6" Grade 8 (207k Horne) wraps touching attempt. I did this DOH since my reverse is not strong enough to move it at the moment.
Thanks for putting the extra effort in to help everyone in Grip. Its also nice to see local trade people are used. Its a shame the UK does not push as hard as I have seen in the US
Will they take the Bumper to help fine tune things?
There are only a couple of choices for spring material in this application for heavy torsion spring grippers. Maybe only 3-ish where one is oil-tempered wire. So except that they are made to slightly different specs (mainly a slightly larger coil diameter) they are the same oil-tempered material. The springs are turned and then baked for only about 15 minutes. In the case of Standard Grippers, however, the springs have also been thoroughly cleaned and then protected with oil. So nothing new or revolutionary; just tried and true parts.
