If that is true scotto, why is it no one can get close enough to get a good look at your builds?
I've never seen any front or side views of you RIDING....only parked.
I suspect you flout our nations speed laws regularly!

I have a HF 110v buzzbox. I feel your shame.

Im a member of the gloop and grind club myself, getting better everyday tho!
But as long as I manage to get good penetration its just extra time. I ran my dragbikes down the track @ 140+ never even a crack. Im on a clarke wire welder w/gas set up I bought for 200$

Old thread, but anyway I found the problem with the generator that powers my MIG welder. New carb on Ebay for 11 dollars free shipping and now I am expert. Added a clear fuel line and fuel filter also from the Auto Part Store locally. Well you know now I can use two more setting C & D which are higher amps up to 130 on D. 15/64" steel welds up nice now.

I use oxygen/ propane. It gets to over 1000 degrees. Silver solder with white paste flux is the way for me. I make my own experimental exhaust pipes with flanges.. The exhaust temp never gets over 350 degrees, so it works without compromising the welds.

I use Oxy-Acetylene for everything I need to weld. I used to suck at it, but now I can weld pop cans together without blowing through, and I can make custom exhaust pipes for all my bikes.
