It's a famous hammer.  This morning I mentioned/showed it to Nancy.  She asked why I was laughing at the pics...and now she knows how important that hammer is to Stainless.

It works on people visiting the shop as well.

OK guys... I never "stage" pictures... as noticed by how cluttered some of my pictures are.  When I think a picture of something needs to be in there, I take it.  I am trying to show what it takes to build one of these from scratch... and I hope all my LR.com friends will tell me if they see something they think is an issue.... So far I have contacted the SCTA tech folks about the floor tubes... no replies other than Lee K said he submitted his recommendation to Kiwi Steve and John Bjorkman, don't know what Lee sent, still waiting for a reply.
The Hammer.... I don't think I have spent a day in the shop without using that hammer.  It is a great tool for nudging those pesky tubes where you want them.  I guess it makes its way into a lot of pics because it is always in use.  I have a smaller one as well, it stays mostly at the mill, but every now and then it gets used and shows up in a picture too...  YEP, that doubles the chances that an orange hammer will be in a pic  cheers

If anybody needs a response from Kiwi Steve & not getting anything, send him a text. His cell # is listed in the rule book. He's got a lot of $hit on his plate as you can imagine but this will help you.

OK, did a little more on the front suspension... Both rockers are mounted to their cross structure, the mounting tabs are fully welded and those structure pieces are tacked in.  Next on the list is mounts for the other end of the coil-overs and the bottom structure that the droop stop rubbers will be mounted to...
Went by the Yard and picked up a variety of material to make brackets and mount fire bottles.  All the upper structure for the front suspension is tacked... it may be time to do a little welding.
El Kabong may be in there, I didn't really look.

Don't you go trying to bring back memories of the 60s and 70s, sir.  El Kabong is/was a very common name for something that hit like a hammer. . .

I thought El Kabong was a cartoon horse who broke acoustic guitars over criminals heads.

Reliability and performance are highly overrated.

"El Kabong" ain't got nuthin' on the one pound hammer in Stainless's arsenal.  Ask him about it.

Luckily I have not needed to use the "one pound" hammer on this build... it tends to bend things that don't respond to its one pound  shocked ... it is a BFH!

I am sure that the "one pound hammer" probably weights slightly more than one pound. Being a engineer I would think that Stainless would have one of these. (straight from the McMasterCarr catalog)

Rex, the "One Pound" refers to how many times you have to pound something to accomplish a task.  cheers
