This is a really nice one. An eight-holer. Steel.

I never imagined that you were a flangist, Dale.

Tell us something.: I used to be a regular then I took up the bassoon. Bassoons don't have a lot of chiff. Not really, I have always been a drummer, and my C&F years were when I was a little tired of the drums. Now I'm back playing drums. I mist the C&F years, though.

I've never cared for flanges. I'm a sprocket man, myself. I prefer Spacely Sprockets.

Of course, the evil and sinister Cogswell makes a great cog.

Ok. Sprockets and foot anatomy are allowed on this forum.

FINALLY, a forum in which I can show an inkling of my geekiness. Real men work in vacuum. Some vacuum flanges:

The principle of an all-metal vacuum seal:

A 16.5" flange, with way more bolt holes than that little wimpy thing Dale showed:

I had a pen from a vacuum company with the phone number, 1-800-FLANGE1 printed on it in big characters. I just felt geekiness oozing from it. But then, I guess it could just as well be a plumber's pen or something.

And, BTW, it looks as though one of the earlier fittings, the one bone quint posted, is either a vacuum flange (kwik flange, probably trademarked) or from the dairy industry -- vacuum and milk have similar requirements. And it's a nipple, not nipples -- if it had only one flange it would be a half-nipple. Seriously. Ponder that one if you think anatomically.

Yep, I'm forced to admit Walden when I first saw "Flanges" that this is what leapt into my mind.
