TIG Welding Book, Kindle version on sale 75% off this week Tuesday 20 thru Saturday 24

Discover the world of TIG Welding.

This book is aimed at people new to TIG welding mostly learning for their own uses and those who have been away from it for quite some time and are looking to get back into it. Learning TIG may seem quite intimidating or if your not getting the results your looking for in your welds this book can help you get into this Fabrication method & guide you in the direction of Mastery. The book is setup in a need to know format and a first pass read takes about an hour or two in total. While you can hunt down and gather this info for free from other sources across the vast ocean known as the Internet as I did in the Beginning your looking at a 10 – 100X investment of your time with a good amount of confusion and potential to head down the wrong path. So in the end what’s your time worth? Success leaves clues, this book can be your map along the Journey.

If your going to Tech school / college to become a professional Welder this book may be of some assistance as an extra boost however most of this material will be covered in your course & lab work, just strung out over months.

If your an existing professional TIG welder already with Lincoln Electric or Miller tattoos on you biceps, flaming skull Welding helmet to match & a “TIG Life” bumper sticker on your Hot Rod I admire your skills and dedication but this book would be to elementary for someone of your skill level. .

RC plane wing holder

Here is a stand I cooked up a few years ago to hold my RC airplane wings.

I made around 5 to 6 of them and they are a good way to store the wings.

I keep them in the insulated attic above the shop, even with the intense heat of the florida summer the storage area does not get above 95ºF.

You can make it out of decently thick ply wood, 3/4″Ø wood dowels & some hot water pipe insulation


Video share of the month Pink Floyd Sorrow

Music can be a huge motivator in the work shop, as some of you may know I’m a Pink Floyd fan and this version / recording of Sorrow is one of the best I have heard coupled with some great visuals.

I recommend to play it LOUD and get some: Welding, Composite Layups, Drone Building, or wrenching on the homebuilt / car done. :^)

Fuel System Damage from Ethanol

Pilots using normal pump gas i.e. ~10% Ethanol check your fuel system components for signs of damage.

This can effect:

Plastic & Rubber fuel lines
Gaskets & Seals
Fuel Primers
Fuel injectors

& even Composite Fuel Tanks

I recently replaced the fuel lines & fuel primer bulb in my 4 cycle high end weed eater. It is a lesson in the long term damaging effects of Ethanol in a fuel system not rated for it.

I’ve seen transparent / yellow tint fuel lines used in aviation from powered parashoots to high performance home built aircraft. If your running 100 LL or marine gas 100% of the time you should be good. however if you occasional or full time run normal auto gas with Ethanol in it you should look for potential signs of damage in your fuel system.

The Yellow lines are more visually obvious when they fail, if you have a black rubber hose then check for signs of cracking, turning grey or brown and do the flex test looking for cracking.

if one of the lines splits like what is shown above at best case your engine will be starved of fuel and you will become a glider. at worst case a roman candle.

Hopefully this will save someone from having a bad day.
