TIG welding is easy.......IF
You have steady hands and can multitask
At minimum you have to do at least 2 things at once
One hand and a foot , if fusion welding
Both hands and 1 foot , if adding rod
Both hands and both feet if using a rotary table

An ex- girlfriend, in 30 minutes was putting down good beads on aluminium
But, she was very talented........>:)

A friend, a check pilot for American Airlines, can't do it, how he flies jets is beyond me......
And he tests other pilot's flying ability

Weldings done

Got the pipe back after having the crack fixed and .... well .... not the best job. Really wish i could have done it myself.

- Ground the pipe where there was NO welding
- missed the crack not once but twice.

How much can i grind out to make it fit the bracket better ?

Jas0n;
Sorry, you got a dickhead to weld it .......he MIG welded it .....didn't check his settings on some scrap 1st
Started out with not enough heat .....it's an electronically controlled machine, when he turned it up
it added too much wire and not enough heat

Dirty used Yamaha Ti R-1 pipes welded with an old transformer TIG machine, I did the radial weld, it's way cleaner than the
Factory longitudinal weld......they are using too much heat and God knows what they're using for gas:grin2:
And, yes i mix my own gasses

Yarp - he be a roit dick head he be.

- i asked for tig - i asked for care - i gave him the widdle bwacket. Worst thing was the company got 3 referals, from local bike shop - local mechanic.

Anyway ill redo it in the future when i get my garage / workshop built.

Gave it some carefull grinding and it all fits ok now.

That's some real nice welding there Noel - thanks for the help
