    O! tig welds were done with my Maxstar 200 STR 1/16" root let it fully cool & then a 1/8" cap. As you can see some of the welds aren't capped yet----ran out of Argon

    Nice welds!

    Why did you make the arms adjustable?

    great looking welds. what are you making ? do we get a full pic of the complete toy ??
    don't ya hate it when you run out of argon in the middle of something.
    i got a backup 80 tank to help keep that from happening. when my big tank is getting close to empty i pull it off and use the 80. this way if the 80 runs out be for i go for a refill there is still a little left in the big one.
    although probably not enough to do all the caps.
    thanks for the help
    ......or..........
    hope i helped

    feel free to shoot me an e-mail direct i have time to chat. james@newyorkmetalart.com

    Adjustable control arms just sounds better I guess? , I will take more pics along the way & post them up.

    The weld shrinking compresses the outer thread. After welding run a tap through it.

    I had the same problem when I did some on my tie rod and steering link. Ran a tap through them when I was done welding.
