I take 22 gage sheet metal cut two circles then slit them into the center about 3/4 of the way in ... lay the circles on top of each other drill a hole ... peen a piece of 1/8" round stock insert then weld the top and bottom ... bend the petals up and shape them ... cut out the leaves ... weld it all together ... bend to shape

After about 2 hours on the machine, the pedal malfunctioned, so I had to take it apart and found the rubber belt was off track and this made the action very stiff and imprecise. Overall, the pedal was just not going to cut it.
Poking around the site, i notice that there are also blogs on the forum site.
So, i guess everlast sets up it's members with their own blogs as well as forum handle, and gallery album. pretty sweet i guess.
So does this give users the forum to ramble out a constant stream of consciousness for the rest of the forum members to see and comment on? Or are there rules and 'preferred content' regarding blog posts and entries?
