  PA290528.JPG - Big day for Dave V and his crew....after weeks of design and fabrication work on the swaging machine it was ready go go...and it went really fast....three crews were busy shuffling small diameter flue tubes out of storage....clamp in place on the pipe rack, line up the high tech measuring bolt, grease up the end and 18,000 pounds of hydraulic push necks down the pipe in no time....hydraulic pull to separate the die from the swagged end, unclamp, remove, rack up another flue and repeat 53 more times....study Dave's face and you can see that it is all in how he holds his teeth/tongue/lips....the rest of it is just a mechanical show of force
