Talk:CEB Press/Bill of Materials

I am in the process of attempting to create a CEB Press Construction Instructions document in OpenOffice, compiling information from a thread in the Documents section on the forum and the various pages of the wiki. In the process of trying to gather the information, I found a redundancy in a listing of tools needed to build the CEB Press: the one in this article at, and the one at

I would strongly suggest the list of tools be consolidated into one, as someone may update one but be unaware of the other, leading to divergent lists (they already appear to be inconsistent). --Howard V. Agnew 10:07, 19 September 2011 (CEST)

this happens with the wiki, usually if you have free time when u see it go ahead and combine the two. try to preserve all the data thats not repeats. and if the title isnt specific enough or just bad hit the "move" tab at the top of the page and pick a name that makes more sense. if no time to edit when you see a problem making a comment like this is in the discussion is perfect. --Dorkmo 10:19, 19 September 2011 (CEST)
also this: when you clear out a page and want it to go somewhere else.
Thanks, but I'm indecisive on which would be the correct one: This BoM linked from the GVCS header template, or the one in the CEB Press Manufacturing Instructions Navbox template. I don't feel qualified to pick one, as I don't have a firm grasp of a master plan for the wiki. --Howard V. Agnew 06:42, 21 September 2011 (CEST)

Regular versus Super CEB Press

I'm going to try and shoot for just the regular version to begin with on my documentation attempt. I'll worry about adding the "super" version in later, or perhaps it would get its own separate machine construction instruction document. --Howard V. Agnew 06:43, 20 September 2011 (CEST)

Hydraulic, Electronic and Fasteners Components List

Is there a way to download the source spreadsheet(s) for these directly? They don't seem to be part of the same spreadsheet as the steel components and order form. It would help out my work on the document if I could download the source spreadsheets directly. Thank you! --Howard V. Agnew 06:00, 21 September 2011 (CEST)

Arms angle iron thickness

According to Brianna, the thickness of the angle iron for the arms (4" x 6") is 1/2", but the Bill of Materials spreadsheet (and the derived ordering sheet) says 3/8". --Howard V. Agnew 09:40, 22 September 2011 (CEST)

Oh and fair warning, I will probably spam this talk page with more notes of things needing to be updated in the BoM as I work on updating and completing the CEB Press manufacturing instructions CAD into a working draft. --Howard V. Agnew 10:16, 22 September 2011 (CEST)
