    My friend uses 75-25 on cylinder heads and says he gets a puddle right away. His mix is 75% helium. Could probably get the job done using that mix and some preheat to get it started using 200 amps. Obviously already done And Iím sure will hold up since itís a strong looking design

    This... Would have been nice to know a several years ago as I showed up to weld a seat on a service car. And discovered it was a hodge-podge of braze /weld . With a miller 150s.

    Will the tire sling mud into the gap there or is there a mudflap I can't see?

    The gap is going to get sorted. Iím planning to cut out the floor plate to the left about 3Ē and dripping a shallow box in that spot just for my gloves. Once itís skirted it will also have mid flaps. By then there will be no gap

    It does make a good spot to hang a tape though

    Gee! From my perspective it was a reasonable question. From the pictures I knew it was a motorcycle gas tank. While I did not know what manufacturer, the law of averages said overwhelming probability; Harley.

    Was it unreasonable to ask which variety?

    I have one of those "centerfinding" tapes that drives people nuts. Engineers tape marked in tenths drives them nuts too.

    tenths on long tapes have gotten me into trouble before; more than once I'm ashamed to admit.

    I have a manual caliper that is measured in 1/16's, 1/32's and 1/64's on the Vernier... it can get you into trouble ordering things, but I actually use it a lot when I'm building. I use the dial type when I need better accuracy.

    Had to change the ball and the nut refused to come off. So fabricated a custom wrench using crossfire cnc. I had 1/8 plate so built two and welded together. Worked like a charm to hammer the nut loose.

    It certainly doesn't take 300 amps to weld 1/4" alloy fillets... although I partially agree, 200 amps even from a Dynasty is marginal and wants a good pre-heat on that huge section.

    250 amps would comfortably blitz it though.

    You seem to always want more amps than necessary for TIG... noticed this as a running theme for you... I wonder if it's the machines you're used to running, run cold for the amps? Or are you running really high frequency? High frequency loses a lot of heat for the amps.
