Post a pic of your latest purchase

Thanks guys!
I guess it is one of the few benefits of being an old fart!!!!
By the way, I'd spend it on women but that would piss of the Misses!! :)
 
I used to be rich, but then I blew most of my money on women, bikes, and booze. The rest of the money, I just wasted.

Hmmm... I need to talk to you about some new exaust for the 77... my tig-fu is substandard at best...

Is the #9 torch flexhead. It's a nice feature for getting in tight spots for only a couple bucks more. Also,you will find when your torch is gonna get hot quick when you are trying to weld up that aluminum as it is a 125amp rated torch. You should look to a #26 torch for welding aluminum as it is rated at 200amps I believe, but will also take larger collets, lenses...
You can use the #9, it will just get hot very quickly with constant use.
 
40' of lumber, 2 sheets of 8x4 1/4" ply, box of 1-1/4" screws, polyurethane glue & varnish, mitre saw, jigsaw:

Building a simple jonboat, almost done!

Hey, that's pretty neat! Do you have plans you can share? I bet that would be a ton of fun to build with my kids.
 
Cheers mate! I'd check forum.woodenboat.com for some ideas and builds... but a good one to build with your kids can be found here:

http://www.polysail.com/skate.htm

It needs 2 sheets of 8x4 ply, some lumber and I'd highly recommend screwing and glueing using stainless or bronze screws and polyurethane or epoxy for glue. I use polyurethane varnish for final finishing, but some have simply used decking or front door paint. I believe Rustoleum do a Marine paint, too.

My boat is something I've doctored from plans, the original being Phil Bolger's 'Skimmer':

http://www.duckworksmagazine.com/04/s/excerpts/maib/13/index.htm

My plan has an entirely flat bottom and is experimental. Its basically to get me back into woodworking after being long absent from any decent project... and if it ends up terrible under power (1978 Mercury 110 9.8hp) I can keep it as an oared tender for a larger craft. Win-win!

Thanks for the tips Reds! I bought the number 9 flex and non flex bodies. I picked them up because the #17 that it came with is big and bulky. It has the weird "hot start" and thumb control shell over it and it is pretty huge even with a number 7 cup. The biggest complaint I have with the welder though is the fire hose of a power cable/hose that goes to the torch. I picked up a nice Weldcraft Superflex hose and this smaller torch to reduce fatigue. We'll see how it goes. I'll definitely look into the 26 for alloy. Thanks for the tips man!
