Hi Jim:
Okay... that rail sounds like it will be stout enough if you can get a good deep weld. 50 tons is a lot of force. I have been totally amazed by things that can happen when a lot of force is applied!

I must admit that my dear wife has been very patient and tolerant of my equipment obsessions. I think that she feels it keeps me out of the bars. And of course she really likes it when people buy stuff I make... women like money. I just have to be sure to explain how great it was that I was able to buy that press last year because just look at this order that came in! Diplomacy!
