I just tried Pam a couple of days ago on my welding table. All those little itty bitty splatter balls just roll away. Clean up with a paper towel. I sprayed the inside of my MiG nozzle and had the...

+1 on his videos. They are very informative and it's taught by a shop teacher so the guy really knows how to explain things.

I have a bigger Craftsman / Atlas lathe. It's a great machine. I would suggest that you look into buying a Quick Change Tool Post. Saves a bunch of time setting up.

Re: new factory metal works build triumph 750

Nice bike for sure. Any truth to the rumor that I just started that you're going to start making girder front ends?

Re: Another Triumph....

I'm a girder fan. That looks good. I also agree with the others on the tank. The tank on my Triumph was way too big. I jacked up an old banana wassell trying to weld on it. I wish someone made a...

"vintage" 60's or 70's Firestone coat

Firestone coat. Windbreaker material. I don't think it's ever been worn. So I'd say mint condition. Size is large. I wear a 44 size coat and it fits me o.k. I don't have PayPal. Bank money order or...

Re: Making fenders from scratch

Looking good so far.. I've had several attempts at making a gas tank similar to an older boardtrack tank but end up with sheet metal scrap for the once a week garbage pickers.

Re: Triumph gone bad.

Nice bike. How did you get that front end on that frame??? Isn't that an OIF front end? Am I wrong or isn't there a difference with pre oif and oif front ends. Sorry if I missed something.

Re: Question about connecting rod polishing

WOW!!!! Nice job on the head. If you don't mind me asking. What was your way of doing this? Were the pistons done by hand? Did you polish the skirts on the piston? Grits? Sand rolls? Scotchbrite?
