    replied to Dynasty Welding Book?
    Ditto on an advanced book with materials listing and starting point settings specifically for inverter machines. Start with the 200dx, gen 1.

    Nothing worse than learning all about a feature or setting, then the reality hits that it's not available in "my" welder.

  • So, for a second ponder this, all ye faithfull.

    Welding has been the last ~100 years...

    Blacksmithing has been around for how long?

    Course, any fool, with a couple hundred bucks can buy a welder, but to be a blacksmith, and, work with the metal, well......

  • vin-man, It's not that no one notices, just don't care

    My Wife's Grandpa was the Blacksmith for a town in northern Illinois. Even when he retired the folks came from all around to set in the shop. Turned into the local meeting place for the old timers.

    It was cool watching...

  • We were just at the Memphis National Ornamental Metal Museum a couple of weeks ago, good place to visit. Lot's of good work.

    They have a working shop, casting and bending / shaping. Real friendly folks.

    If you are in the area worth stopping by and taking a look.

    replied to Chrome Moly tube welding?
    One thing to keep in mind, on a Kart the suspension is the flex in the frame. In the wet, most of the bracing comes off, on a high grip track bracing goes on.

    If you are changing cross bars, that part needs to stay in line, engine and axle sprockets that is.

    have the mm210, works great.

    Have not used the mm211, but, have an old miller 110 volt mig, great little machine. Use flux core in it, fixed a few farm tracter's, odd welds, cellar doors, etc. Works great and portable. The mm210 is not so portable.

    If miller is selling...

    My Guess, the ground is bad, or your not into the juice.

    I have the same dynasty, make sure the ground is good, get into the power to make the pudle and back off.

    For sure, practice on some metal on a bench (flat). Try burning some holes so you know how far is too far,...

    [QUOTE=KB Fabrications;178676]I sure hope we call all get back to the peace, love, and harmony that this place once was.


    Trouble with the "age of love" is it ended with the Manson clan at the Tate house.

    replied to Clean it up.
    First off, Andy, thanks for posting. The last few weeks have been interesting...

    Second, some folks just aren't right. Thats just the way it is. When you work with them, or end up next to them in the pub, you either egg them on, or you just leave them alone.

    One thing...

  • I've got a closet full of them, first Grandpa's old clothes, then some of my pop's.

    In years past we used them often on exhaust pipes with gas heat.

    They actually work pretty good.

  • You can use coat hangers...

    The important point here is that on a race vehicle, the design is light weight, close to the limit of strength / failure. Some, but not a lot of "extra" safety margin.

    Sooooo, what that means is, you race, you inspect, you race, you...

    It has been a long time since I had any of these classes, But, I am old enough the laws of nature have not changed yet.

    Current does not "flow" , Current is the measurement of flow. (I)
