Hahhaha!! And I was hoping to make my comparison before you or John got to it with a gay joke or cross gender joke. Keep em coming, I get a good laugh out of them.


Yeah I'm doing ok with them, none of this work is a full job/swap. It's just fix or finish shit.

Working on this badass fastback tonight!

Been working on this car and the mango bus with the Subaru.
Fastback intake and mango bus exhaust. I'm building the Sam exhaust for the fastback now. It's been a fun car to update.

You're good at getting that stainless to flow.

Nice welds Andy, you got them scales to lay nice! I like to look at welds but have no desire to weld. Father was a pipe welder and I did not inherit that at all. I suck ass at welding!

I'd say the best way to do stainless or even steel tig welds is make sure it's butted together and touching. Gaps are no good! There is minimal fill rod, some to get the puddle flowing but once it's flowing I back off and walk the cup.

But who cares right? Smile

Yeah tight gaps are everything. Wink

I like to get plenty of welding rod in the puddle to keep my weld the good high tensile strength stuff. That, and sometimes if the puddle isn't big enough, it sucks the metal from the outside and makes it thin around the edges. Know what I'm sayin?

I know exactly what you mean!!!

I'll fuse weld the stainless intake and exhaust. Aluminum, good luck!! That shit always need fill rod.

What size is your tig set up with? 3/32 tougsten? I use 3/32 for mine and I use that mostly for fill rod unless I'm doing small shit I'll go smaller.

I did some 20g steel sheet metal the other day, besides being super slow at it, the clean up is nice. Not a lot of grinding.

Yeah 3/32" purple tungsten. I like 1/16" rod a lot.

Try using .030 mig wire as welding rod on sheet metal.
