    Exclamation welding math.....

    if it takes a six pack of budwieser to weld a oiltank for a harley
    and two beers for a gate latch.

    how many beers does it take to rebuild a rusted out 72 RS camaro ...
    ive been working on this math problem for three months

    how does it go ???
    volts+beer=inches per minute
    beer x nothing do to=welding

    First, redo your math problem, you got the equation wrong.

    It takes a 6-pack of Old Milwaukee pounders to weld on a Harley

    Gate Latch sounds right

    Therefore it takes 10 cases to weld a rusted out camaro. If it dont stick, add another beer can for backing.

    H x C divided by R = Nightmare

    What else is there besides welding and riding. Besides that

    There must be something in the sixth can of beer that affects the welder.
    My welds start out ok then gets worse. I tried putting the beer farther away from the welder and it seems to help. The problem with this is the time it takes to get to the beer and back to the welder. By the time I get back, I want another drink. I don't get much welding done this way but I have saved a lot on gas and wire.

    Thumbs up

    Kbar i think youre in the ballpark for the camaro

    but for the weld not sticking i tried adding another but i couldnt get the beer bottle to stick to the welds.so after the breaking of the beer bottles i did come up with some cool custom tail light lenses.



    hey Monte...if you drink the sixth beer your machine wont work right ,but what you do is open the seventh one you place the bottlecap/pulltab between the ground clamp and the work piece.then it practically welds it self

    Default Beer

    Cliff, from the TV show "Cheers" had the best explanation yet about beer and I think it applies here.

    He said that brain cells are like buffalo. It's usually the older, slower, sick animals that are taken out by predators and that strenghtens the herd.

    And we all know that beer destroys brain cells, but it's only the older, slower brain cells that are taken out. And that is why we always feel smarter after a few beers.

    Now if you will excuse me, all of this thinking has made me thirsty.
