We set up the Tig and I played with it a few minutes. It's going to be a longer learning curve than when I picked up a Mig handle...
I have only played with my buddie's TIG but really liked it I would love to have one but it is way down on the priority list I'm afraid. I am sick and tired of grinding MIG welds.

No worries there. It's good for 480 LBS with the cable doubled.

And if you go over, it just doesn't pick the item up.
Great investment for about 70 bucks. A real back saver.

I found this pic today of my 88. I had it since new. I redid the rockers and cab corners, a bit around the wheels wells. Then I sold it. To make room for 53.

Darnit! I miss that truck already. It looks good, but the frame is so finished on it. I decided to put my effort into something older. I did it all with rattle cans too!

You know what's creepy? My God time flies, this is a photo of the day I brought my truck home. It's a 48 and it was 26 years old the day I brought I in 1974.



This is your 1988 truck that looks darn near like a new truck to me! It certainly doesn't look like a "vintage" truck to my 55 year old brain, yet it is the same age as my OLD truck was when I bought it!



My God time goes by fast!

Brian

awesome weekend so far. Saturday I visited my old stomping grounds in SF and my daughter got to go eat at a nice place with her grandfather and then we all walked down to the playground for a couple hours. Then I dropped pops off and we headed to Baker beach, where I held my daughter's hand as we said, "na-na-nanana-you can't get me" to the incoming waves as we'd run for our lives up and down the beach. Good fun. Today just pulling weeds in the backyard and will finally hollow out my stump and perhaps will get a fender for the 49ers bike started and planished out so when the E wheel gets here I can do some quiet work on the week nights and get it nice. Would be great to do all the loud stuff on the weekend and save all the quiet wheeling/bead rolling for the weeknights. Anyhow, gotta go run to the store to make my wife and daughter an awesome veggie sandwich...garbanzo beans/kidney beans mashed up with vinegar and olive oil, topped with advocado, sprouts, lettuce, tomatoes, on fresh sourdough. Good day all.

I also took a day off from car stuff.

It is 72 degrees here and Barb and I just got back from about a 150 mile ride around the lake on the Harley.

It did a lot for my cabin fever but it is supposed to be a high of 39 on Wednesday. If so it is good we did it while we could. Cabin fever will return soon enough.

Tried to watch the Daytona 500. Rain, rain & more rain in Fla. (and snowing like bleep around here! - about 10 inches now, but it's supposed to be warm & raining tomorrow, so all the white stuff should be gone)

John ,I think riding around on a Harley is about the best excuse not to work there is..
Myself,I worked all weekend but I also made progress with be bead roller...and came up with an unusual design for rollers that I'm in the process of getting turned. When the rollers are done I'll post some pics. I'll start a thread when the bead roller is done I expect in about 2 weeks. its variable speed/reversible.with a 30" throat. I'll be getting restarted on the coupe as soon as its done.......whahoo
