Re: Old dog learns new trick...Welding!
No shop session this week at Tinsmith's as we went to the Design Logic race in northern Maryland today, but i do have a little bit of progress to report and some photos to share.
A new found pleasure is in being able to weld something up if I need to. Following some ideas from WayneZ I made up my own exhaust manifold for my predator engine. I cut, drilled and ground to shape a piece from plate steel to bolt to the engine and to it welded a 3/4" pipe street elbow and to it welded a conduit union. The exhaust pipe is not shown in the photos, but is a section of conduit bent to shape. Works great and I think gives more power than the flex pipe I was using.
Someday when I grow up I will probably lose interest in toys with wheels, but until then...
