Thanks. I am lucky that are kids are into as much as we are. Go cart has been down cuz we are waiting for a belt and the kids have been bummed. LOL I am going try and update it more often than not. LolThat’s epic! Lucky kids!!!! Following this for the awesomeness of the many projects!
It was nice. I tacked them in the fixture and pre heated them before welding. Welds layed in super nice. chromoly is always a pleasure to weld.Having parts fit like that looks like so much fun to weld
I was just going to ask you about pre-heating before welding.It was nice. I tacked them in the fixture and pre heated them before welding. Welds layed in super nice. chromoly is always a pleasure to weld.
I put them into the jig and preheated in my small powder coat oven up to around 400* . Once I remove it I do the first pass making sure not to over heat the material.. While it is still hot I will make the second or wash pass where needed and then let it slowly cool. If needed you can put it into a bucket of sand and cover it to allow it to cool slow or cover it with a welding blanket.I was just going to ask you about pre-heating before welding.
What's your process on something big/thick like that? do you stick it in an oven so everything stays clean or???
We plan too. I have had some interest but the price factor isn't that appeasing. LOL just the big brake kit is costly. 6 piston calipers and 14 inch rotors add up.are the sprindles something you are going to offer in the future?
