really really Top Secret Concept

I wish I could show more but.................

The machine is all Hydroformed 7005 Aerospace Spec tubing, It is a very special tubing that can only be welded to a small group of aluminum because it has a special mix of alloys. The worse is when you order a box of tubing that has a weight of 4 pounds and it costed you over $700 dollars. 

The Hydroform process is very special as well, it is the process of using a machine to fill the inside of the aluminum tubing with very very high pressure water ( 20,000 to 100,000 Psi ) and making the tubing expand in to a cavity mold of the shape you desire. The beauty in this process is the tubing doesn't go thru very stressful conditions as it would if a hard steel die formed the aluminum with raw force, the water forces the tubing in to the most unique shapes that once had to be made in multiple pieces in the past.

Well, anyways. Check it out or at least what you can see.

I wish I could show you, but you might win the race
