      actually, ya, its just parked there. the tongue weght would be a problem. the biggest trailer I pulled was identicle to this one:
      http://www.truckpaper.com/listingsde...d=1611811&nh=0
      It is really stout (ie heavy), so i only took it next door back to its owner. Nice work on the tube, and aluminum, I need to work on that myself.

      can anyone give me some input on this welder? Ive emailed the seller but no response yet. I thought maybe somewhere here could ID it from the pictures as to a brand/ possible model.

      What, no Chinese welders off eBay??

      On a more serious note... beautiful welds, Jay! I hope some day I can learn to weld like that.

      He didn't post pics in this thread but Markku@Agtronic does awesome fabrication and welding too. I just love TIG welded stainless.

      heres one of my more recent ones with the miller diversion 180 Chromoly subframe for a mk3 GTI


      this welder works great for its price and portability. incredible quite when welding on DC and tolerable while welding on AC. I would recommend it to anyone

      Little help on that weld. More heat and thicker filler rod to give it a larger bead. Also focus the arc like you did mostly on the tube, but wave it up to the edge of the flat stock for a sec, then dab filler, focus on the tube, wave up, dab,.... the weld you have there only penetrated that flat plate a c-hair it looks like.


      Also I like the diversion too for a beginner tigg'r. i used my 180 syncrowave for a few years, then tried a diversion a buddy got. inverter was so much easier; arc focus was much better, and it kept a pointed tungsten much better, and even on aluminum it stayed sharp for a while! If you accidentally wack the tungsten in the puddle, it sort of "blows" the tungsten clean (into your work so its not very good for it) so you can keep going 9 times out of ten before needing to resharpen.

      turn it on, choose polarity and heat... weld. doesn't get any easier than that. As soon as i used that diversion my syncrowave was in craigslist and I bought a Thermal Arc Arcmaster 185 a week later!

      yea i should have walked the cup while welding that but since i am building braces on the underside i wasn't to crazy worried about it.

      I weld with a syncrowave 200 every day at work. i bought the diversion simply because it was the best bang for the buck i looked at the dynasty but for what i use tig for it didn't seam like something i really needed at the time. maybe in another year or so.

      This was welded on 80-90 amps thats what the guy who taught me to build roll cages told me to weld chromoly with. This would be the first time i've used such a large plate though and i only had some smaller filler rod otherwise i would have used the bigger stuff i usually have.

      thanks for the input though

      NO WAY. thats dynasty prices.


      the 165 diversion can be found for around $1200 or less. I found used ones for $600 on craigslist here and there.

      In what world are you living? the Dynasty is a $3000 welder for the 200DX machine

      the 165 can be had for so cheap because its not a digital interface set-up and doesn't come with a foot pedal and a few other options. The 180 is anywhere between 1800-2000 just like i said look it up

      one question on the intake manifold. What made you make the top section out of two pieces as opposed to one? and why did you feel the need to weld the interior as well?

      other than that stuff looks great
