    Thanks. Yes, 1/8 inch over 5 feet is not much, but it is too much here. It must be able to be disassembled and installed easily. And the way it is it rubs the side of the tube hard.

    Rotors like these need to be straightened after fabrication
    www.artisanind.com/pdm/images/polishing.jpg

    heat straightening stainless is tricky. the higher than steel coefficient of expansion makes it go WOOOW just because its warm and it take a long time to cool to a uniform temperature. There were 2 or 3 guys at the balance shop that got real good at straightening the rotors good enough to begin balancing. After welding balance weights on it took a while to cool, and then things would have moved aroung again

    Thanks Dan, that's a trick looking part. Probably spins at a good RPM if it has to be balanced? This auger I'm talking about turns slow, has about .160 clearance to the tube. It was sent back to the manufacturer today for them to play with. SS, especially 304, is a crazy metal to work with.

    Jdustu, I'm taking welding classes now and your skills are something to shoot for. In about 50 years. Simply AMAZING! I'm going to show your pics to my instructer Friday. You might get an invite to Houston.:D

    Was at the Iron Invasion this weekend, good times. Cool hearing from people who keep an eye on this thread or the Friday Art Show, even if they don't post!

    I actually did this early Friday before leaving for the show.

    Not in the same league a the stuff on here, but I'm proud enough to show this: Justin is a kid who has just started out helping at my shop. Started teaching him to weld and it is important to me that he at least gets a handle on MMA before he picks up the MIG
    This was after about 30 minutes on heavier stuff with 2.5mm rod, I had to leave and told him to play on some 1.6 or 2mm scrap and get a feel for heat control, traverse speed and how much easier it'll all burn through.
    He misunderstood and grabbed some 1mm :eek: These were around attempt 12-15.

    I've seen guys who've been at it with a MIG for years making much messier welds than this......

    Tape often holds stuff on for lots of years too :D


    I like to weld for "worst case scenario", not "well....this might not break!"


    Love your avatar Lippy. I welded this piece this week:

    Repair job I did last week. Prep is as important as the act of welding itself. Nice bright clean metal is required for a good sound weld, regardless of the process used.
