the barrel will be bent with the pipe bender on the shop.
the welding on the chamber is no problem, it is welded before and has 2" thick steel endplates.
if this is the last post when i get home i will edit it to tell more details but i am currently doing an exam
oh, BTW, the muzzlebrake is just for looks. i may drop the goodies first and put one part of a tim on later IF i build it.
thanks for the comments!
For mandril bent pipe for high pressure water/steam, Weldbend in Chicago makes these mandril bent parts. It's fun to watch this machine work. It doesn't reduce the diameter like a typical muffler pipe bender does. The down side is bring your banker with you. This is industrial stuff. The red is hot elbows.
The finished parts are almost identical to your drawing.
Had to delete the URL. Illegal character made my post a blank page. Go to the home page and look in the catalog at Fittings.
Photo on the home page shows the induction heated parts being bent as they are pushed over the mandril. I had an opportunity to tour this place.
I hope a couple 2 inch thick steel parts don't add too much weight. I thought my PVC tennis ball launcher was too heavy
Is this to be truck mounted?
