Default Re: what did you do to your motor bike today?

Well, I've stepped in it now: I'm making a new custom aluminum tank. I've brushed up on my skills with the Alumaweld. I've already made the wooden form. So tonight, I've begun cutting metal.
I don't think I'll be posting many pics. I've been getting in the zone, and the camera tends to take a back seat at times like those. But, more importantly, I'm just following most of the methods and techniques that Tinsmith outlined in that wonderful tutorial he posted on this forum. So I think anybody who wanted to learn how to build a custom tank from solderable or brazeable metal (i.e. brass, copper, aluminum, tin) would learn more from him and others who've done so than they'd learn from me.
Therefore, let me say thanks to Dan the Tinsmith! You put me on the road to a better custom tank, just by showing me the best way to go about it (other than paying somebody).
