Gene shows us the proper angle of the torch and said we should use 1/32" rod. He showed several techiniques of torch handling. Can't explain them. you have to see it for yourself. Sorry.

The flame shown is with an 000 tip. Slight feathering. This is ideal for gas/hammer welding


Edit: This pic is not the greatest, but it was the best of 4 I had.

05-05-2004 08:27 AM A shot of the semifinished tunnel
Gene quickly buffed the tunnel bumpout with green compound, even though he didn't complete the metalfinishing. He just wanted to show us the process. He had TONS of materials to cover, so he just touched on the various processes involved, rather than completing each one. You better had paid 100% attention, because if you sneakd out for a smoke or a pee break, you missed a ton.
Admittedly, I didn't focus 100% on taking pics. There was just too much good stuff that I would miss.

Gene sands the tunnel with 80 grit to remove the vixen marks. He will follow up with finer grits later
