Butt Welding Sheet Metal With A Mig Welder
If you are doing rust repair patches on your restoration project, I put
together a few tips for you on how to avoid blowing holes through your
seams: Use short bursts, pull the gun away from the work a bit to make a
cooler weld, don't point the gun directly at the weld, hold it at an angle,
weld on the last weld, that's the thickest piece of metal, use a copper
backing plate to prevent fall out.
A Beginner's Introduction to Welding
I weld a brace onto a wheelbarrow, and use this example to discuss DIY
welding techniques, including MIG welding, stick welding and oxyacetylene
welding. Advantages and disadvantages of each technique are discussed.
The right and wrong way to tack weld.
I demonstrate how heat effects steel as well as how to tack correctly to
combat these effects. http://redwingsteelworksplans.com and

How to make a body panel from scratch. Step by step using Clay Sculpting - The Real Fast & Furious
Here is the making of the last panel on the JZ COBRA concept car reshell. A
step by step process to help you learn how to do it yourself. As always
clay is used to get the shape from which a panel is made up and finished.
If you want to see how the rest of the JZ COBRA concept car was made with
clay then please see other videos. Feel free to ask questions. I am always
interested in doing exotic car concepts using real Ferrari, Lamborghini or
Maserati etc sports cars as donor cars. I am able to take any one of these
cars and turn them into a concept car of your dreams. Be the first to do
this outside of any factory. If you are wealthy then why not be the first
person in the world to turn your exotic supercar into a concept car of your
dreams. The fast and the furious movies inspired people to change the look
of there cars. Now I am showing you how to design your own car by your own
hand and become a real fast and a real furious car designer in real life.
This IS the next level!!
Aluminum MIG Welding With Basic Equipment (Under $500) and NO Spoolgun
Pete shows us how to weld up non-critical aluminum joints on thin material
with only a 110 Volt MIG Welder. Weldable thickness ~.080 to roughly 3/16"
in certain joint configurations.
We used 4043 Wire and 100% Argon Gas.
This welder is currently on sale from HTP. If you need aluminum wire, or
anything else with it, you might want to call them or email them and get a
