hey all, im new here. been reading on here for awhile and theres some good info on here. i weld for my job but not too long ago i bought my first tig welder. it is a 99 model syncrowave 350lx. i was looking at new welders at first but for a machine that would do what i wanted i couldnt pass this one up for the money. i paid 3000. for the welder. it is has all the options and it came with a watermate 4 cooler,foot pedal,2 tig torches,arc welding stinger,hand remote switch, smith flometer,and a nice homebuilt cart.
for my first project i decided to build a fuel cell for my car. i still have to order the cap and bungs but basic structure is built. thought id share some pics for you guys.

Wow that's really nice, what gauge and alloy of AL is that made from? I had an order for one here local and the guy said "i'll supply the sheet aluminum and cut it" well turns out the stuff was anodized, talk about a b*tch to weld ... it was a night mare bump welding all the way around the seems of a rather large cell
Yours looks great though, makes me wanna trash the one down stairs and go get some 1/8th 5052 and start overDynasty 200DX
Hobart Handler 135
Smith MB55A-510 O/A setup
Hypertherm Powermax 45

Holy he11 man...those are some nice looking welds. Whats it going in?Precision is only as important as the project...if you're building a rocket ship...1/64" would matter. If you're building a sledgehammer...an 1/8" probably wont.
