It's fun to work on.
Gotta thank XB for the slashers he gave me a sweet deal... not quite as good as the $20 swap meet/garage sale sticker still on the left pipe but well worth shipping and a few bucks
The sticker stays for sure.
The kick shaft is real good but has that wear from kicking against the pin. I keep setting up to build up the worn spot with weld (less than 3/16" X 1/4") using a leather cooling pouch on the backside, but still cant get over the annealing heat and loosing the temper... Should I TIG it or MIG it, I can preheat just a tad, hit it with several short pulses allowing for cooling between on either process.
Anyone got a better plan?
