With the tubing now having the correct ID, we pull it out of the lathe and part off the two pieces we need using a horizontal band saw so the lathe could get back to work on making the parts we had interrupted.

The left over section of tubing shows just how much material we needed to remove:

Then insert the tubing into the plates that were just made

And then welded them together

The hangers will be able to except the more common sizes of D rings in this industry, 5/8", 3/4", and 7/8" shackles

Now we are able to tack weld them into place
