It would appear I didn't charge nearly enough for what I made.


I still retain most of the capability to work titanium.

Thanks for posting the bolt weights... I didn't think they'd be too heavy. Do you know how much the pulley bolts weigh?

Removed ~40 pounds from that "nut" almost 6 years ago. I'm sure it's helped my fuel economy in my vehicles a little. And it's transferable between vehicles.
It's helped my skiing ability and stamina a LOT.
