One day I intend to be a very good pipemaker, Ive just been made redundant AGAIN and am starting to think that it...

Just something to allow me to see the bore data that doesn't require a fighter pilot to make it do anything. Maybe Im trying too hard with the cad stuff? Maybe...

I think that probably is a big ask. However maybe he would be prepared to sell the info wether as spreadsheet data or plans. After all if he were to make pipes 24 hours a day he probably couldnt meet demand, and even if we got our hands on the dimensions, there's damn few could make them as beautifu...

So what does rolling involve? I have made large ferrules from sheet and can see the advantages of making all ferrules from sheet, but what is involved in the process? Can anyone descibe the rolling process to me or point me to a web page that explains it?

Thanks

In the past I used K & S brass tubing which was great for ferrules but gave me sleepless nights when it came to u bends. I now realise that that particular type of brass is both too thin and also...
