      The bar is a home made contraption 1-1/2 bar hyd drive off the truck, hand feed. I am way to poor to afford one of the commercial bars.
      I would love to have a bore welder but just cant justify 7 grand for one I will just keep on welding them by hand.

        Nothing wrong with home made. I'll be looking for your pictures.

          J Hall, the main reason I wanted to point out your job, seems too many people tend to consider this "over and above" their capabilities. When you cut it down to the basics, line bore is essentially lining up a series of holes. Especially for a "one-off" job, it's not as expensive to do as one would think. One does have to take accurate measurements, and one does have to take their time boring the hole, but in the end it's not rocket science. I always admire the guy, looking around his shop, and figuring he has what's required, with a few hundred dollars more, getting 'er done.

          Last bore job I was involved in, for the price it was beyond my capabilities, reaming out the front steering pivot on a Roadtec RX-45,,,,, 8" cylinder, needed to go down 4 more inches, bored wrong from the factory. I gave the customer the name and phone, guy stopped by in a pickup, took a few measurements,,,, came by a couple days later, with the big truck, everything pre-fabbed, a half-day's work on site, total bill was well below $2000.00
          Obviously, I'm just a hack-artist, you shouldn't be listening to anything I say .....

            progress update

            machine showed up today. It was a little bit different than i expected. The customer had tried to remove the broken off, rusted in place pin by cutting along the tube with a torch. Not sure why they tried that but guess that is why they build buildings and we fix stuff.
            My plan is to cut out the tube, machine a new one undersized on the id and line bore to size after welding.

            Te pics are not great just snapped a couple before i left the shop

              It looks to me like you could make a tube, weld it in and be done . The length gives you a little room to play with as far as needin a real good fit.

                I will get the job done no doubt about that, but it tickles me mow much of a difference there is between what i get told and what the thing relay looks like.

                That is my plan more or less. plan to leave the tube undersized and bore it after welding. have a feeling it will warp. if i dont and leave it sloppy enough to allow for warp is not going to my style. I learned better to do a job better than expected than not good enough.

                      It looks like you could use more air. And maybe more amps too.

                          That's like saying, [could use more money].

                          On something like this, is there such a thing as too much air, or too many amps?

                            No. Just pick a bigger carbon rod.

                              Dang shure could used more amps now running a bobcat 250 maxed at 250 3/16 carbon have a big 40 to put on the truck when I get a chance to go through it. It has been in cold storage for a while.
                              as far as air goes i have a imt hydraulic drive compressor 25 cfm. to put on when things slow down for know i will keep using my gas drive 10 cfm.

                              js fab "No. Just pick a bigger carbon rod."
                              What size would you suggest 3/16 now.

                                I'd suggest at least 3/8”, but that welder won't cut it.
