I know this is a long shot, but does anyone have or have access to a crimping press tool with the jaws for crimping 3/4" and 1/2" megapress fittings (RP 330-C, RP 330-B, RP 340-C, and RP 340-B are the recommended tools)? Being able to use the megapress fittings would make running the airlines in the new building VASTLY easier, but the tools are cost prohibitive unless someone has them or has access to them through a plumber friend.
You asked about “jaws for crimping 3/4” and 1/2" megapress fittings (RP 330-C, RP 330-B, RP 340-C, and RP 340-B"…
Do these megapress fittings have to be a specific diameter, have a specific crimp pattern, and/or require hand tool jaws have a specific psi setting?
I have several Stimpson heavy-duty manual arbor presses…
BTW, do you still need help moving to the new Hive13 location and if so, when/where/what do you need help with?
I actually do not know that much about them, I was just looking at the manufacturer’s recommendations. after doing some more research, I’m leaning heavily toward using Aluminum for the air system instead of the steel pipe we have used previously. looks like it’s cheaper and easier to install. something like these products:
we definitely still need help moving, check out this thread for what the current tasks are: https://groups.google.com/u/1/g/cincihackerspace/c/O5vQw9KLqD8
Anyone know who this is? The name doesn’t show up on intweb, and the emails feel awkward/off to me.
thanks for reaching out and offering to help! I apologize, but I do not recognize your name or email address, are you a Hive13 member or have been a member in the past? Are you looking to join? Have you toured our facilities before? If not, let’s get you set up for a tour so you can see the new space and talk to someone about being a member and starting an application! Are you available Tuesday evenings?
Looks like it was the person who joined the list yesterday.
Yeah, that was the only connection I saw. I invited them to get a tour and talk to someone about becoming a member.
Could at least two leaders please coordinate being available on Tuesdays, and someone please let Steve know they will be there to give him a tour and get him signed up?
Do you think you can do next week on Tuesday? One of our new leadership members should be able to coordinate with you to get you a tour and get you signed up!
