    Nice Bill.

    Will have to look through my photos to see if anything is decent enough for you guys. No tig stuff though, all mig and oxy.

    This is more like the standard of weld I can do. Not so good, but it makes the bits stick together pretty well.
    This was going to be the bell housing for the Mallock engine but I changed my mind halfway through welding the plate on. I decided to finish welding it all the way around; it's not as if I don't need the practice!

    Yes that's a reasonable weld, but I'm not really sure what I did differently to make it so.

    i found with aluminium, once things are set-up, (current, metal clean, metal warm, close gaps) its not too bad. when any of those are not quite right, it gets messy. the clean weld is when you do it in one pass and not going back and reheating the spot.

    i was also told, that going back and re-dressing the weld isn't the best. better to run a clean bead at start. anyhoo, it helped me.

    Been practising welding thin & small stuff, so I can stitch the alloy model aeroplane together.
    Getting better bit-by-bit for this fiddly thin crap.
    The tube is 12mm square hollow 1.6mm walls.
    The plate that the 12mm tube is welded to is 3mm thick.
    More practice needed but I'm getting closer ....

    Well that^^^ puts my efforts to shame

    but 1st time attempting tig/alloy so im pretty happy with the end result being somewhat as intended... and after testing it appears to hold boost nicely...

    Nice work, just a question, how do you weld all around the pipe diameter when it comes time to welding on the runners to that collector

    I cant say for sure as that is the first collector I have made of that design. The customer wanted it built exactly like that which is what full-race use in their manifolds.

    Just stick the tungsten out further and crank up the gas flow. Maybe change the end cap on the tig torch to a flat cap so you can get on more of an angle if needed.

    I cant see welding them being to hard, I haven't had any problems with my typical design. When building them I tack everything together then break apart the runners and completely weld them before welding the runners back onto the flange and collector. I leave the runner with the most access till last.

    While not really welding, I'm pretty happy with a quick silver solder repair on nopics glasses frames:



    Using a 1mm flame on the oxy is a little strange...
    Imagination is more important than knowledge.

    ^ Looks like a fiddly job.

    Old mate sent me some photos of the manifold he made using that collector in post #16.
    I'm sure he wont mind me posting them.
