  1. If I don't know the content of the metal or dissimlar the go to rod for me is 309L stainless. I have used 309L on A2 with good success. A2 is the hardess metal I have worked with. It requires a 500* preheat and post heat.
  2. Don't know will have to try it.
  3. If it is a critical weld I will either never restrike or I keep a 12" 1/2 round file to drag the rod over before lighting up. Beating the rod to get it to restrike can break the flux and cause pin holes in the weld.

    Covid break

    Was informed yesterday a customer who I was with last Thursday working on his equipment has tested positive for covid. So I went and got tested today. Won't have results until Friday afternoon. So I am taking a mini vacation until test results come back. Stay in the house.
  6. I figure I am on borrowed time as I have breathed welding smoke, cigarette smoke, grinding dust and have beat asbestos coating off of pipe to cut and weld.
  7. Cellulose and 18 series are 2 different things. Use whatever you like on your wood splitter, if it fails you can reweld it. In my opinion cellulose rods can be too dry and 18 series need to be as dry as possible.
  8. Never heard of that brand, but there is a lot of things I never heard of.

  10. They have a really good frame. Years ago local dozer guy had a taylor way bog he pulled with a D7, it was really heavy.
  11. Got out of high school and Uncle Sam did not want me due to injury's in a car wreck. Parents could only afford to send one of us to collage and sent my sister. Worked as a labor in construction and helped dad on the farm. Lots of highway construction going on and got a job as a welders helper and then as a welder ( learned basics in ag class). Flipped back and forth between equipment operator and welder for a few years. Was on a job in western KY and my job was keeping the dirt pad built up over a pipeline so they would not damage it while crossing with equipment. When the job past that
  12. When I was growing up one of the local hardware stores sold these. I wanted one bad with all the attachments but we could not afford one. Last week my wife showed me this one on facebook marketplace. Told her to call and if it runs I will take it. So now I have one. Might even find some of the attachments some day.
  13. If you get one be sure to get the highest grade chain possible, almost took the windshield out of a dozer with what I thought was a good chain.
  14. Local dairy called with a bad spindle in a disk It was a double spindle in the same tube one pointing in and one pointing out. So no pushing it out set up to pull it and put about 12,000lbs on the pull cylinder and things started bending. So had to split it on two sides and it was still a hard pull. It had actually galled in the tube. I cleaned the tube up with a die grinder, pressed the new one in and had to use the push cylinder to close up the gap where I had split it.

    Fire pit

    Had my steel supplier burn this out and roll it. I put a bottom in it and built a insert for the deck to set it in with a 4" air gap all around it. I am satisfied.
