    Gold, yellow, it's all about the shiny level...(it's gold)

    The minimum on the machine is 20% balance, so I'll try just a hair above that and see what happens. At first I was attempting to sleeve...

    Tungsten type and settings help please

    Using a power tig 185. Most online guided for invertwe machines suggest yellow, red or blue tungsten. I have tried all of them and can't get any to work. If I use 3/32 green tungsten, 50-50 EN/EP...

    Let me first say I had the machine incorrect, which really makes me look dumb. Its a Power I-mig 205P, not the 250. Not sitting in front of the machine right now, but I'll double check all the...

    How to minimize spatter?

    My setup includes a Powermig 250 with a #4 bottle of argon/co2 mix flowing ~10 cfm. My wire feed rates seems to average roughly 10x my voltage. The beads look good and after cutting a few apart I'm...

    It was down on power before it slipped the tooth. I'm gonna do a compression check on it as soon as I find my tester, but I think a lot of it has to do with the exhaust. Radiator has two standoffs...

    Got to work on some of the electrical. I'm not a neat person and my buddy volunteered to help me wire it. I think the dash came out looking pretty decent. Eventually I'm going to have a pro redo all...

    Sorry I disappeared for a while, been working on the car and at my real job almost non stop. Here's a massive update.

    Yeah, he cnc'd the gussets out for me. He told me last week he was getting ready to cut all my stuff out so I drew up the gussets and sent over the files real quick. The front bulkheads were what I...

    Maybe I'm reading it wrong but those two sentences seem to contradict themselves. If you lose all your certs as soon as you're no longer employeed, how can you have certs while applying for a job at...

    Got the other front seat tacked into place and the pedals tacked in. Its a tight fit for everything, but there is enough leg room for a small adult in the back seat and I fit perfectly in the front,...

    Glad to hear the filter got worked out. There's always a trade-off in everything you do, so now you just have to decide if the values you have are good enough to work, or if its worth the extra time...

    Man I would freaking love that supercut, but we just bought a car and the down payment wiped us out.

    This contest was from last year.... did it reopen and I missed that post? I would have figured if Oleg started a new contest it would have been started in a completely new thread.

    I was really interested until I saw the xbox controller. Real men use PS3 controllers.



    Actually, that doesn't look bad. Post up the details on the plans/package.

    Rambozo is right on. Most of the books you'll find on this subject are in "textbook" form, so don't expect easy reading on it, but SAE books are a great source to go learn. Once you get past chassis...

    If I ran them through the cross tube it would place the transmission too high. By running them at an angle from the tubes towards the front, it also gives the skid plate a perfect place to mount...

    Tube welding question

    So I have two tubes that intersect at a 90 degree angle. They don't intersect through each other though, as one sits on top of the other. I was just going to make some quarter-round gussets to...

    I really like my powetig 185, and while I'm not positive, I would assume the powerultra is just the powertig with the plasma added in. I've welded quite a bit of .095 and 1/8" tubing with it and it...
