  • Ryan beat me to it. I was thinking construction company for the deltaweld and feeder. If you don't sell the feeder by itself then package deal with the deltaweld for a price probably only a little more than the feeder is worth. These used to be the hot ticket for fab shops but as was mentioned out...

    Try first if you have not already. Make sure you can push the wire through the gun from one end to the other by hand, you put in a new contact tip, your ground clamp is tightly on your work and the gun and cable are fairly straight with no tight bends..

    replied to Bad Steel ???
    Sounds like a bad ground. You should be grounding directly to the gate and not relying on the hinge to carry current. Also grinding a clean area for the clamp. Also where you are trying to start an arc should be ground clean. You probably know all this already but that is what it sounds like. "Bad...

    Mechanic is going to flip the centers and put on new corner ones. Then back to the job.

    replied to Dozer blade skin
    I only planned on 3 passes for each joint but after having some spots that just looked like not enough weld I decided to cap them. Most areas took 4 total passes some spots took 5. Looks much better with joints filled up. This was more for looks than strength. I don't like "wasting" time or...

    Not Alaska but what I do is wait until it gets really smokey, then open the garage door all the way for a few minutes to clear it out and then start again. Not the best way I can tell you that. I think the best way would be an exhaust fan mounted directly above where you are working piped to the outside....

    Here's two pics. Fiting the first pc. Had to trim the wing side as it is not a straight seam. 2nd pic is all fitted and tacked up. I left approximately 1/2"-5/8" in between each plate. I will weld each plate to the blade and then 1 pass catching both sides. Won't be flush but plenty...

    Dozer blade skin

    Todays project, Cat D6. Put a new skin on the blade. Customer had their equipment guy template it and get four formed 3/8" ar plates. The center ones were spot on but the side wings were bumped to a flat radius when they are slightly cone shaped. I cut them in 3 sections each to get them to...

    I thought about balance vibration issues. Made sure the blade holder was even at both ends relative to center hub. Also since I didn't really add or subtract any material from the pan it should be ok plus the pan od is pretty equal to the center hub with small variations. The mower is I think 10...

    Always amazing to me how they wear out. The amount of scoops it must take to do that. Looks good.

    replied to Problems mig welding heavy equipment
    Not quite sure what you are saying? It broke because it was mig welded? Lack of penetration on the ends? If so I wouldn't blame the process, more the operator or whoever set up the operation. I would have no problem welding this with dual shield or inner shield, new or repair. Even bare wire mig...

    replied to Bent brush hog disc
    In retrospect since about 1/2 of the blade holder welds were cracked already I should of just cut it off and straightened it and the pan seperately, then welded them back together at the end. They kind of fought against each other while straightening plus then I could of straightened the blade holder...

    First I was mistaken on pan thickness, it is 3/16". Next customer told me a new disc/blade holder from John Deere costs $900. I took a quick look on the interenet for one, used or after market and came up with nothing. I figured about 4 hours to do this, so I am below the 50% mark that is kind...

    This is the final. Had to flip it, block it up and clamp/heat the blade holder one more time. I'll do a quick blade sharpen and bolt them on, ready to go. 5-1/2 hrs.

    replied to Bent brush hog disc
    Been raining all week so catching up on shop work. First remove blades and shaft stub. The pc of shaft was stubborn. Took a few heating sessions. Next get the blade holder straight. Then start on the pan. Sliced it in two spots to make it easier to straighten. Was tougher than I thought but it's...
