    Serious question......metal heads

    I bought a utility trailer years ago from a serious welder dude.
    It's perfect but I've lost part of the original coupler and they are hard to come by.

    A replacement is going to cost me like 80 bucks.
    Alternatively, they have these coupler repair kits.
    It looks like it will work but the clamp portion of the kit is too wide
    on one side. Not by much but sill.

    Name:  clamp.png

    The clamp would fit perfectly if it was turned backwards but not
    in the intended position.

    Question. Would a blow torch and vice combination work at reducing the width of
    the wider portion of the clamp(red line side)?

    thx in advance

    Ok I can’t be the only one disappointed when opening Les’ thread hoping it would be about maybe Iron Maiden, Metallica, Dokken, Ratt etc and find out its a bloody welding question for a trailer hitch. JFC. You had me excited for a moment damnit and then Les happened.

    So in the interest of fairness I must add these two videos.

    You're half right, I love Ratt but they're not metal. Well fuck it, neither is Sammy but I can't not post it.

    Got to say I'm a little dissapointed. First of all people are fagging up a serious thread with
    ridiculous music videos.

    Secondly, steel when heated and molded is fucking strong. That's how they make this stuff in the
    first place. Once cooled it's back to being steel. I may be wrong but I doubt it.

    Too many Nancys on this site staring at their cell phones, checking their twitter

    Oh yeah and the guy I bought the trailer from I had forgotten his title.

    Not just a welder dude but a millwright. Top top

    Any time you alter a piece it changes its properties and use. Try to get any qualified welder to change that for the purpose you want. Quit being an ass and pay the 80.

    Again, correct. Also I've seen some pretty shitty welds from some self-proclaimed welding pros. I'll cobble shit together on my Jeep, but you'll never, ever catch me cheaping the fuck out on a trailer. It's stupid, it's not worth it.

    Turns out I'm right. Shocking. Just got back from a metal works shop in town and
    the guy gave a yes to using a vice and heating it would make it easier.

    I specifically asked about properties being changed and strength of the piece afterwards
    and he said as long as you let it cool naturally it will be as strong as the original.

    I took another look at my trailer and it turns out the width is not the problem it's
    the flange to the far right. It rises up above the rest of the part so it just needs a
    little flattening.

    Just as long as your not doing the welding Les. You might go up like a blowtorch no pun intended.. Considering welding involves flame or high voltages creating heat as in arc welding you being anywhere near such a thing with your BAC being whats normal for you might cause a potential explosion Sorry dude couldn't resist..

    I know, one more alcohol joke is never too many.

    Update, I got a loan and bought the proper coupler.

    Good move, lester. Glad we can keep you around a few more years. Also, don't trust that guy. He's trying to kill you and move into your place.

    omfg finally my time to shine. Been listening to metal non-stop since the 80's, was raised on Metallica/Slayer/Megadeth/Anthrax etc. My current favorite band is below. I want you guys to know I am not encouraging illicit drug use but taking some lsd and listening to this would probably be really cool.
