RE: [DML] Re: Broken torsion bar question, answer?

Hi David

I did speak to Grumman and they took ages to get to get back me.

They did not object to the technology or patents being infringed, I think
it is a very possible for this to be done.

I think a way around this if someone wants to pursue this in the states is
contact  Northprop Grumman as they merged in 1994.

I am not sure if you have Apprentice programs for graduates in the US
like we have in the UK. I am sure they would rise to the challenge.

I would see what I could do but from 5000 miles in the UK I am at a bit of
a disadvantage !!!!!

They say every one is only 6 people away from anyone else in the world,
why dont we test the theory........................................



If anyone wants more info let me know at Kevin@xxxxxxxxxxxxx

  Even if you found the machine and got it for free there would be so
  many other expensive things. A machine like that would probably
  require a lot of room, heavy power and liquid something that would
  generate the cold required. You would also have to have the torsion
  bars fabricated. You would need a lot of them because you will be
  ruining a few before you figured out how to do the process all over
  again. You would have to be able to make left and right bars and would
  have to make a big enough run to justify the set-up so you would have
  to have a huge inventory of a slow moving part that will cost a
  fortune. Not all that different from a press run of S/S panels. I
  don't see it happening. In all probability the machine still exists
  but could have been changed so it could be making a completely
  different part. The tooling is the key here and it may not exist. Then
  again if the torsion bar in the Delorean is the same as in the fighter
  plane (or very similar) a production run *could* be possible. Who
  wants to call Grumman?
