Potato Chip Truss

chip.jpg Here's another big goofy thing I made a little while ago. It's not quite as complicated as it looks; basically just 4 ellipse segments at tangents to each other. It's all 1 - 1/2" and 3/4" schedule 40 aluminum pipe, hand bent cold using jigs bolted to a table. One of the many things that I someday hope to do with this blog is post some tips and tricks about tube bending. Someday. Posted by Hal Eckhart at March 25, 2004 09:16 PM | TrackBack
