Hi JD

16mm 8.8 steel.

is just to remove valve guides and bushes, bearings - nothing that needs brute force.

it's just a 5-ton jack, if I need more, I'm going to a bigger workshop.

For now it will do just fine.

PS: Stef got the picture. Stef, it's 8.8 steel rods... and the ceiling over the bench is 1,9m on top is a cement floor where I throw materials, and other stuffs ... and where I keep the pieces already painted and wrapped up so they do not get damaged. So no drama at all!

Fair enough, it's quite an interesting looking machine. I tend to over engineer everything I make, belt, braces and a bit extra.

Belt, braces, and a bit of string,
Any doubt left, add a safety pin.

Having had a large portion of my career at sea, the word 'preventer' is never very far from my mind when setting up something that is going to cause me untold grief when I cock it up in my usual cavalier fashion.

NASA came up with 'fail safe' and 'fail soft' quite a few years back, deep sea sailors had been doing it for centuries.

And I've still got most of all of my fingers......

Cheers
