Thanks, Mr. Ike. And f*** you madest, and when you're through, f*** your skank whore mother.

I might not have chosen the exact same wording but Madest, you are acting like a real piece of trash as usual.

Mr Ike, He's a self proclaimed genius. He's supposed to know.

@OldOllie, the 2 parts seem to be forged pieces. This means there's a lot less waste material. Forging that double cone out of a single piece would be impractical at best. Most likely the tolerances needed won't even allow that.

Machining is a very wasteful and time consuming process. By welding 2 forged pieces like this they achieve a very strong end product, with good radial alignment tolerances. Much cheaper than it would be if they machined from billet material.

Really neat process. Oldollie, there could be a few reasons why they manufacture this way rather than machine a single piece.

Truly a wonderful process. I think that I would be quitting the job after the first ten minutes though.

And this is better than machining the part from one piece of steel because...

That is cool, but won't work with all welding situations.


Awww, really? I was so gonna try this at the shop Tuesday morning with some square tube steel and flat plate aluminum.

Feel free to smack yourself upside the head while saying "duh".
