I need to buy one more bench motor to setup just for polishing, but those things make flammable dust everywhere lol.

Few adjustments and the slashers will be ready to wake the hounds 🤡

That's looking good now.  BTW, I still think my welding looks worse than yours...  :-)

I tried hard to get that look

Real deal is the shits so thin you can't really pull the trigger and go welding and get any full penetration so I left a gap and pulse welded it... that plan was to grind and buff all along. Erick tossed in a sweet idea to use old burned up flap wheels and now I know why I save them dinner.

A-65 DeadTail Restart
« Reply #124 on: Jan 12, 2017, 12:09:20 »
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  ;D 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?

Unless you get it red hot, you're not going to lose the anneal.  Letting cool slowly is going to keep it's temper.  Are those shafts hardened steel?

Your gonna put less heat overall into the material with a few short mig welds than you will putting the same amount of weld with the tig.

Thanks David!

File test says hard but not real hard Eric.

I was thinking same Hurc. And I dont have a cart for my TIG setup, I like it by the bench so I'll shoot a few boogers at it and clean it up... hell if it lasted 50 years I'll never have to do it again.
