          how do you get a bead profile like that? do you move the torch forward at a constant speed or do you weave back and forth?

            it appears that he just pushed straight forward with no weave, it looks like he probably paused at each dab of filler though. just my opinion, i don't even know the person who did it, just looks that way.

              what kind of material is that, the color of the haz looks to be stainless but doesnt have the appearance of stainless, maybe its just my eyes.

              just curious

                    I just got all hot and bothered. That is probably as good as it gets if it's on Rob's truck. Definitely 4130 if it's suspension parts for a SCORE vehicle.

                    How long does it take to fab one of those arms start to finish for a guy like him?

                      the inside fillets are walk-the-cup weaves

                      outer edges could be the same, or just stepping

                        well to shed some light on this subject. These peices were welded with a Sync 250 in his Grandmas Garage. All material is 4130 for suspension, I'll try look up some more pics of his work, his cage work is very impressive.

                            looks great, dose he cut the pices and do the hole fab job himself???

                            would you put it togather with taks to hole the hole thing togather tacked up then start runing beads?? or do them one pice at a time?? i suspect tack it all togather then weld it up but just wondering??

                            thats a lot of compound angled pices to keep from worping all to he!!. i would love to try one but dought it would come out anything like as nice as that. gotta have a jig to i supose.
                            thanks for the help
                            ......or..........

                              Walking the cup, I've been trying to get good at it since day one of my second semester. My instructor who is an old pipe welder (Nuclear plants and such) used that technique on a butt joint and you can barely tell where the joint is. It's obviously a great technique.

                              Man I wish I could afford a nice TIG setup.

                              I'll bet your guy stays pretty busy if he's doing stuff for Gordon. Man, Gordon... that guy crashes more trucks. I was just reading Dirt Sports and saw that he crashed twice at the Big CORR race. Crashed, rolled, landed on wheels, kept racing. LOL... must be nice to have those kinds of components.

                              What would he charge for a set of those???? And I'm still curious about how long it takes a pro to fab those start to finish.
