The fellows in AgTech needed some more transmission assembly stands like this:

So, I put these together:

We didn't have any large-diameter round stock or heavy-wall pipe, so I made the smaller shaft receptacles out of the pipe we had on hand.

I cut short lengths of pipe into segments, strapped them around a round form with two layers of aluminum foil in between. After the segments were welded together lengthwise, I pressed the form out. The foil made that job MUCH easier.

On the larger receptacles, I welded the segments inside a piece of pipe before boring it to size.

If I had had the right materials from the start, it would have been just plain boring.

Nice work. I wish I could get a customer a day wanting things like that.
