    The 375 does well on thin stuff like cutting out floorboards. On thicker stuff it helps to have a fairly new tip. It could stand to be a little more powerful.

    I've got the Motor Gaurd M-26 toilet paper type dryer on mine.

    Hey 1320Fabrication are you happy with your 375? Mine does not seem to be up to the task.. Upped the input electrical line & about to put a extra dryer in the air line. How does your's perform?

    Front engine dragster? Why don't you just buy a rear engine dragster and run it in reverse? Kind of like a sports compact dragster with the big tire in front. LOL

    Sorry couldn't resist?

    I try and tack as much as as I can and get the diagonal braces, or "X bracing in if at all possible before doing any finish welding. When you weld you can weld a little on one side and then weld a little on the opposing tube to conteract the pulling or movement of the tube. Make the forces work with and agaisnt each other .

    Sorry but you will have to learn to stand on your head. The jig holds everything from pulling around while welding. Scott.

    Four point tack

    I am building a Front engine dragster chassis. I've set up my jig with holding clamps for the chromoly tubing to keep everything stable. My question is if I put four point tacks on all my joints can I remove the chassis from the jig to complete the welding process so I don't have to stand on my head or play the equivalent of "Twister"
Working...
