    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.

    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.

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