4th set of sliders this week.. Getting a little redundant, here..

Have to work on fine tuning a little bit - have some spatter going on in the first pic.



This was vertical downhill..



Built a shroud for my compressor..

What kind of pattern do you use when laying those beads? Just curious

Hmm..

I push most of the time..

On a 90 joint, I'll start my arc in the apex of the two pieces, then do a cursive "I", keeping an eye on my puddle, making sure it's tying into both upper and lower pieces.. Then bring it back to the apex, pushing ahead a step, then repeating the cursive "I".

A lot of it is sound, too.. Found that the space between the "crackle" will increase when I make the "I" back into the puddle.

Sorry it that made no sense, it's just become a second nature tactile thing for me.

Do you spray the piece then weld through it or clean the weld area first?

Has anyone used an oversized die for bending tube? I have a 180 degree JD2 die for 1.660" pipe, but didn't know if there's any concerns of wrinkling, deformation, etc. if I used it for 1 5/8" (.035" smaller) tube?

I don't even own a bender.. yet.

But from the limited research I've done, i don't think you'd get very good results by using an oversized die. Fairly certain that the dies actually specific shape to them; rather than just being a straight form to the outside of your pipe/tube. Each manufacturer is a little different - I know JD2s claim to have more R&D than JMR, etc..

Short version. I think you'd f up your bends pretty good.

Just do a test bend and see how much it deformes. If its to much you can always pack the pipe with sand to help it keep its shape.

With how close the sizes are, I doubt it would be too bad. You'll probably just get a tad more flattening of the tube around the radius.

Just started stick welding today, and I laid down some gnarly noob welds 6011 on ac at 125a. I ended somehow welding a latch and a 2x4 gusset on a piece of angle iron. My father in law is gonna be like "WTF is this sh**?!"

Need more practice, I need to weld some tabs on my roof mount light bar, but don't have anyone to teach me so YouTube it was. I'll get it eventually, it sucks I can really only do any type of mods on the weekend's since work has me out of town 4-5 days a week.

Best way to learn is get some 1/4" flat stock and lay flat beads next to each other until you get it down, then move to vertical, then to joints.

hi everyone i just joined this forum today. ive been working with steel for a few years now, and also attending school to become certified in several areas of welding, so im fairly savvy when creating the strongest possible design for any of steel structure. that being said, for the question im about to ask, im not looking for the easiest solution, but your advice on the strongest most effective solution.

I am in the process of caging my cab, i am almost finished with the bed now. When assembling my cage inside the cab, would it be better to drill through the floor of the cab with the hole saw to weld my tubing to the frame? or should i just weld the tubing to a flat plate of steel, and then attach that to the floor of the cab?

my tacoma was stock a month and a half ago and ive been working on her every weekend since, heres some pics of where im at so far on my build

Do not just weld it to the cab. What I did is cut square holes way too big, weld to plates on top of the frame. Build the structure and then you can knock the tack welds off the plates and drop the cage to weld the top



Then after finishing all welding to the structure you can push back into place, re-weld the plates and gusset them





Then you can tack the cab floor plates back in

Very cool! I like that approach a lot better than cutting the roof off the cab and then having to reweld it back on / do paint.
