Re: Frame build: 1936 stuff

Extra gas.

Similar trick here on the Dual Carb VL we did last year.

Re: Anybody familiar with this welder ?

Water cooled torch.

The knob should control gas flow.

The high frequency should be an on-off thing and not dependent on arc starting. Usually in DC mode it should be scratch start.

My employee Dr Marvelus has the EconoTwin with the High Freq just like yours. Not a terrible machine.

When I first started to learn TIG back in the mid 80s the shop had an actual HeliArc machine...

Re: Anybody familiar with this welder ?

Usually a scratch start with DC welding. You can use...

Re: Frame build: 1936 stuff

I think it's possible. Might need a bit more clearance for the tin tops, but I have seen them in these frames.

Re: Home made workshop tools

Been using 4340 Bar. Holding up well with some minor repolishing from time to time. Made a linear stretching die for it a while back, works tits!

Re: Home made workshop tools

Table top is 5'X12' 1/2" thick and the holes are 1/2-13 threaded on 6" centers.

Eventually I want to replace the top with 3/4 or 1" plate with more holes. But this works very well for now.
