CNCs are bad ass for sure. I want a water jet.

Been so busy at office, havent been in the shop in nearly a month. Got some welding in to get my fix of argon inhalation. Working on a member's manifold as well, hopefully snap some shots up this coming week.
Quickie tubular bracket for rwd sr20det turbo intake pipe for MAF-less system. ground down powder coat, welded on 5" extension which needed support.
Machine: Everlast 185 Micro; Mode: DC; Amps: 20-30; Argon: 100% @ 18cfh; Tungsten: 1.5% lanthanated; Rod: .040 308L

Had a Toyota Tacoma come in today with a bad exhaust leak...found the problem.

Welded it up with a stainless 308 rod after preheat. My weld cracked the first time after I finished up so I decided to make several more passes and then post heat the manifold and it worked out good. We'll see if it holds up or not.

Had to make a custom windshield washer reservoir for this vw that I'm working on. Tried to make it as big as possible with what little room we had. It's 60series aluminum with a 2.75" neck. It's my first aluminum project in a long time, kind of enjoyed it.

Do you have any problems with leaks welding on corners like that, or do you use a sealer of some sort? I have always heard the best way is to curve the corners some so the weld is on a flat section. Down side is that could get tricky depending on what you are working on tho...

Had some small pinholes after I finished up. I actually went back and made a couple passes on each weld just to clean them up and eliminate any leaks. Looks ten times better now.

So I've see that mostly all u guys use trendstone for piping, I wanted to know if there is any place that I could get a big kit of bends and pipe. I'm planning on making my own manifold soon and don't really want to buy individual pieces if I don't have to. It's going to be similar to a sidewinder and just maybe a little shorter. I'll be using a miller 212 mig because that's all that I have at the moment. Maybe info on the type of pipe grade and thickness will help too. Thank you guys and keep up the good work

mazworx has some fairly priced manifold kits. there flanges are the best out and it comes with a good amount of bends. you may still have to buy some straight pipe to make a complete manifold and you would need a collector.

I buy my collectors from vibrant and for pipe I go to ace stainless.
