Re: wow check this out

that's a good thread thanks for posting it. I wish i could weld.

Re: wow check this out

its cool that he welded it the old fashion way with a tourch and a coat hanger

Re: wow check this out

Did he use the coat hanger as filer rod? I'm confused.

Re: wow check this out

wouldn't that make it brazed and not welded?

Re: wow check this out

i think brazed is with brass so not but same concept. either way nice work on his part i woulda done the calculations fo an expainsion chamber but what ever.

Re: wow check this out

He used an Oxy-Acetylene welder to make the pipe. Before electric welders were invented this was the only way to weld. Its not really like brazing at all. Gas welding like that produces quality welds on par with TIG...far better than cheapo MIG setups.

ANCIENT POST BUMP!

Looks like the link has disappeared, do you have a good one? I remember that thread being awesome, I want to send it to a friend who's tuning a modern scooter.
